CHAOS




I'm not kidding.....I had all intentions of blogging this morning but then the trim guys showed up at 7:15 so that didn't happen.

Y'all I must have done some major brain damage in the 60's and 70's because I don't know what I was thinking.  All this work in 20 days?  I am good with paint and new pillows but when it comes to construction I admit I am way out of my league.

You know I was thinking some new cabinet doors and countertops....maybe a new faucet and bam.....done.

But Michael came over and set me straight.  When I said I wanted a whole room of shiplap he laughed and said no.  Huh?  But I....."No Sherry".

K.....then what do I want.  And he told me...and I damn well listened.


New Trim.


Kind of a mess here because the doors are so close to the wall....but "boy wonder" had the solution.


Lot's of writing on the wall....

The only upper cabinets I have came down.....


Sconces over the windows.  After 24 years new backsplash.  Finally.

Here is the mess I'm living with right now.  No worries because I am so darn excited I could spit.

Oh yeah by the way I have been selling things like crazy and I said goodbye to these pine bookshelves.  I had them custom made 24 years ago and it's time for something new....it kinda makes me a little sad.....after looking at these pictures:(



Friday we will go over the backsplash, faucet and sconces...plus a few other tricks up my sleeve.

Stay tuned.....

Sherry, a room of new trim will make all the difference in the world. I just did it in a room that had been added onto our 1928 house during the '80s. They put ugly trim (among other things) in that room and it always bothered me. I had a carpenter duplicate the trim used in the rest of the house. Wow! You'll love it in your kitchen.

YAY....so glad he talked you out of shiplap!
I think you'll be happy he did.

I do love those custom bookshelves though.
However, I am 100% sure that what you do in place of them will blow mw away!
