Let me just say I'm not a DIY person. The most I've probably done is paint and remove wall paper. So larger projects haven't been my thang.
Fast forward to about a month ago.....enter the kitchen with the ugly green countertops/walls 🤮.
Apologies to the green fans, I am not a green fan 😂. I couldn't live happily with these ugly green countertops/walls, but the cabinets don't look bad, right????
Yeah, that's what I thought until I got up close. Then you see all of the old scratched, worn, broken wood 🤦♀️. Oi vey!
I just knew I couldn't be happy in this kitchen. So what's a girl to do? Change it!
The internet could be a wonderful thing (most of the time 🙄) - so after much research I found two kits. One for painting kitchen cabinets and one for painting countertops to look like granite. The kit for the countertops has the minerals mixed right into the main coat of paint. How cool is that?!
So after much work, and help from family, I present to you my labor of love...
Oh and some pretty new contact paper for all of the cabinets and shelves.
Now this makes me happy when I walk in! And that makes all of the hard work soooo worth it!
Also on a side note, now I want to paint a whole bunch of other stuff! Tables, chairs, furniture...think I found myself a new hobby 😁.
So if you're like me, and your kitchen is in need of some updating but you don't currently have the funds for all new kitchen cabinets/countertops, I recommend looking into these kits:
Thank you Satin Dragon for the challenge ❤️
Sooooo there I was driving along a pretty busy double yellow lined road on the way home from work when I see a “chipmunk” look like it’s trying to cross the road in front of me, then I saw grey, and ears….hey wait a minute, chipmunks aren’t grey with pointy grey ears, is that a kitten? Yup!
Here he is, the new male love in my life- Smokey!
And like many a male, he enjoys Boob time! 😁
When you've got over ripe bananas looking at you on the counter,
what else is there to do?
May I present Mama and baby chocolate chip pumpkin banana breads! 😂
Today was a very good day. I’m making positive strides towards my future happiness.
What better way to celebrate than some yummy blackberry sangria, seasoned olive oil and bread and fried stuff! Lol.
