White Kitchens

Hello, it's Monday again.  I had a super duper weekend! A Girl's Day Out weekend to be precise. I spent all day Saturday with my friend Mandy Lou ( Hi Mandy). We started the day out at Smoke on the Water, it's an annual barbecue competition where all the proceeds are donated to our local boys and girls club. Next, we headed to Ruby Tuesday and enjoyed every bite of our lunch (yummy).
 We did a little window shopping, then we headed to the movies to see Django. (the D is silent! lol) After the movie we scheduled our next outing, said our goodbyes, and went our separate ways. What a day! sorry no pics of my outing, maybe next time.
 
Okay where were we? Last week I said, I would return to my "decluttering and organizing," but I changed my mind. This weeks post is all about "White Kitchens" So let's get started.......

I chose this kitchen for two reasons. First, I love, love, love, the antique stove. And secondly, I have the exact floors in my house. This gives me an idea of  how my kitchen would look with white cabinets. Enjoy the pics!

Fresh flowers and fruits are a great way to add  a splash of color without a commitment.

I like the homey feel of this kitchen. Soups on!

 The pop of green used inside the cabinets really wakes up this space.

I'm diggin the contrast of the baskets and butcher block with the white. awesome! 



I know, I know, this kitchen is a far cry from the kitchens pictured above.



 
Come back next week to see how I transformed this kitchen from "woe is me" to Wow!

    LOL, Great weekend!! Eager to see what you do with that kitchen. It's all amazing and to put very little money in such a huge success is just incredible.

    1. Thanks Mandy, you know my motto. You don't have to spend a fortune to create a beautiful home! But you can make it seem like you did!

  3. Thanks, white cabinets aren't for everyone it depends solely on personal preference. But they are pretty I have to admit.

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.



My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!


Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
