Our Painted Kitchen Cabinets

Hi friends!I wanted to take the time to do a whole post on our new kitchen and let you know how much we love it. We decided after looking at our house the first time, that we definitely wanted to paint the kitchen cabinets.  The cabinets were not our favorite, in a cherry finish and they made the kitchen very dark, especially with the black countertops that are there now.  So, to lighten and … [Read more...]

Painting a Media Cabinet

We are continuing progress on the house and getting settled in and it's been exciting!  I think we are finally able to breathe a little and start to feel normal in this house.  It is really strange to move to a new house.  It's a little emotionally exhausting too with new surroundings and everything feeling different, but it's all good stuff and it's nice to have this house feeling more like home … [Read more...]

Adding Beadboard to the Bar

I didn't hate it. But we both agreed that another color would totally enhance the house and make it look visually even more appealing for better curb … [Read more...]

Installing Beadboard Wallpaper

If you've been reading my blog since 2009, then you've no doubt seen my love for beadboard wallpaper and all that it adds to plain homes by injecting some architectural detail where there was none.  I discovered Graham Brown beadboard wallpaper back in 2009 and have done many projects in my current and former homes with it.  It really is a great cost-saving way to add some cool wall treatments … [Read more...]
