Things I'm working on and new stuff around the house....

Well, it seems like forever since I had a chance to post... honestly I've been busy with so many projects I just haven't had the time. So here is a quick catch up on what I've been up to and a few new things around the house...
I finally got around to painting my master bath cabinets and the upstairs bathroom cabinets... sorry  no before shots here... who has time for that?  I sanded the light Maple cabinets and got the sheen off of them then primed and painted them with Swiss coffee in a satin finish, then I used a mocha glaze to give just a bit of character and changed the hardware from nickel to oil rubbed bronze... I love the way they turned out so much so that...

 I've started on the kitchen cabinets... we also got a new counter depth fridge and dishwasher.. I'm torn between leaving these just painted or adding the glaze in the bead board cracks... what cha think?

 H.H. and I trimmed out the giant hole above the fireplace and painted it white... looks a lot better but......I still hate that big hole!

                        then.... we added an outdoor pendent light to the back hallway... it was actually recycled from our front entrance where we added a aged copper fan~light fixture to cool us while we sit on the porch.
Whoops.. I forgot to take a picture of that...

 Then I re-arranged my office to make room for the old crib that H.H. set up for the new babies in our family.

                  I also put together a new centerpiece for the dining room table...

   added to and re-arranged the wedding wall...

                                      got a new favorite candle from Target that I LOVE...

                                    got a new pillow from Home Goods and changed out the art  on my living room wall and changed the furniture around a little bit..
Whew.. that wore me out... I think I will go put my feet up on that sofa and relax a bit, I've been working too hard! Hope you are having a great weekend!

  3. Busy one, you are!!! I'm inclined toward pure white kitchen cabinetry but that's just me...your home has a patina about it that mine doesn't.
