|Before and Blah|
After borrowing a tile saw, we spent a Saturday evening, cutting and installing the tile, we were tired, but oh so pleased. Honey did an awesome job doing all the cutting and lining each piece up. It just changed everything and WOW!!! We LOVE it!!!
Next step - paint... I have a sweet friend, Lora, owner of Tea for Two, whom I got to know when she was Youngest's occupational therapist. It's funny how God constantly shows us how small the world really is. We got our sweet GSD, Lady from Lora, she painted a wall in each of our kids' rooms. She is amazing talk to and be around. I mentioned to her in a text that I was planning on doing some painting to transform my dream for my kitchen and asked if she knew anything about chalk paint... Well, one thing led to another and WALAH!!! Over homemade pizza with her family, she listened, questioned, restated, and eventually a plan was formed.

Lora left me with some homework:
- distressing the remaining cabinets
- installing new knobs
- sewing new curtains
- painting Snack Shack
- Painting inside of cabinet doors
- apply sealer on cabinets
I was able to knock all but painting the inside of the cabinet doors and sealing the paint job.
|Before and after|
The Before and after pix isn't the greatest, but I'm tickled with the results! It makes me strive to keep the counters cleaned! Thanks for stopping by and making it to the end of a LONG post. I'm glad you came!
I wanted to add something to the side of the pantry - maybe a message board or place to display some pictures. This is what I have at the moment, but I'm open to change. What do you think? We talked about doing some chicken wire, corkboard, chalkboard paint, whiteboard... So I headed back to Pinterest for some searching. Still not sure this is really what I want, but for the moment, this is it at this time.
What are the latest changes you've made in your home? Where did you get your inspiration and how long did it take you to accomplish your vision?
Even though Lora did not ask or know that I'm adding this info, if you would like to talk to Lora about transforming an area in your home in 2 hours or less, you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
