I'm in Love ~

Happy Sunday my friends.  This is my new farmhouse sign for my kitchen  ~ which is now finished.  Yeah ~!

You know where this is going ~

This is the kitchen before ~

It was yellow ~ I didn't care for it anymore

The walls are now Vanilla Sugar and the cupboards are Kitten White ~ swoon ~  I am in love

I picked this little cabinet up at an estate sale.  It is now our liquor cabinet.

I made an onion and potato bin out of an old egg basket and lined it with drop cloth

Mr. Vintage made this farmhouse bench for me ~ how I love that man ~ He makes me smile ;-)

I made a potholder out of drop cloth and stamped a little chicken on it.  You know how I feel about my chickens ~

Our little message centre.  Hmmmm dinner sounds good.  I wonder who is cooking?  

My enamelware utensil holder fits right in ~

BUT the best is coming ~

Whooo Hooo ~ we found a school house lamp and it came from a local school, St. Mary's Academy.  It was torn down quite a few years ago.  Well, we found this at an antique store.  I love it

There you have it.  My kitchen redo,  all nice and fresh and light.  I think I'll be cooking tonight.  I love spending time in my kitchen now.

I am almost done the family room.  So I will share that with you soon
