Plus, who wants to buy a house that has counter tops with particle board swelling up and flaking off....definitely not pretty.
I feel sort of sorry for zac that I always get to just plan everything...choose colors and textures and then leave him to do all the dirty work. I wasn't exactly sitting with my feet propped up...but I wasn't stuck in the kitchen for 48 hours either. One day while the kids were able to go to VBS me and my friends when to Trish's house and cooked her 4 meals in less than 2 hours (she's having a baby in 2 weeks and my thoughtful friend Emily thought we should stock her up some meals.) I finally received my payment for the little forest applique...and the wait was WELL worth it!
Trish has her masters in pottery and I kind of feel like the winner in this handmade swap. Her baby nursery was SO very cute....the applique was right at home. :) I'm super happy to have these mugs for my new kitchen....
And here she is....whiteness herself - in all of her spic and span glory. I just can't believe the transformation...Zac did SUCH a good job. He also replace my sink for a much larger deeper one...and I got a new faucet that I can actually fill up a jug of water now without having to tilt the jar...so nice. How about the back splash idea? We found this idea on line...you just use the really nice water treated white bead board around your kitchen and finish it out in a little trim....looks cozy and def goes with the style of our home.
Loving this $2 dollar bar from Ikea. I know a few posts back I said that TJMaxx was the happiest place on earth...I take it back. Ikea wins by a thousand times.
