Now, for the big reveal . . .

I know the couple of people that look at my blog have been waiting on pins and needles to see my new kitchen so here it finally is . . .



These are terrible pictures (and I even edited them in picnic) but you can see most everything. See the bottom corners? They are corner drawers - LOVE THEM! No more lazy susans - HATE THEM! There are a few things I already wish that I would have done differently - like the faucet. The sink is so deep that the faucet doesn't reach to the front very well and I didn't put in the spray faucet. DUMB! And the stainless appliances - can you say CLEAN EVERY DAY! You can see that everything is black, cream and a touch of brown. Kept it all neutral so I could change things up when I got tired of something. Now, I need ideas on how to decorate - what colors?


I made this shadow box for a friend's birthday that was a month ago. I really need to get more on the ball! Love the muslin rose in the bottom corner and need to make more.





I also finished this cabinet but I think it needs something more. What do you think?

I have 3 quilts in to get quilted (I don't quilt by hand - would like to but who has the room? - and I don't machine quilt the big ones myself). Will show photos when I get them back. So, I guess I have accomplished a few things this summer even though my list of 'want to get done' is still very long. Feel that summer is slipping away!


Oh, by the way, there is a very cool giveaway going on at Dime Store Thrift. Go check it out! She is the thrifter of all thrifters!


I made reservations for our trip to Minnesota to attend the Junk Bonanza! If you haven't been, it is an amazing sale! Full of fabulous junk items vendors make into even more fabulous junk! Hope they will let me take pictures! If you are going too, let me know. We'll talk!


Waiting for all you junkers to contact me . . .


Ciao!

Your kitchen looks wonderful!!! I'd say as far as accent colors go...what do you have in other rooms? I use deep red accents in my kitchen...etc...

Happy decorating!

Your kitchen looks beautiful!!! I love the black and white, I have dark brown and white with touches of black. I always wanted stainless steel, maybe a fingerprint free one? He he don't think it's possible.
Thank you for stopping by my blog, I have you entered!!!! Good luck!
Cheers,

I am so jealous your kitchen is wonderful and that cabinet decoupaged is in all the shades I love. I have a scale fetish. Not to get on them but just collect. Wonder what that means?
