The Kitchen :)

So it only took 5 weeks for me to finally post a picture of our kitchen. But here it is in all it's glory:I know, so exciting right :) It get's better...
This cute little basket that I picked up at Hobby Lobby last week as a catch all for the counter, since it's impossible for us now to throw stuff on the island.
A close up of the back splash that was already in the house:
Our pantry; My dad repainted the doors white, which was awesome! The black cubbyhole's on the sides are chalkboard paint, but I bought some magnetic paint to paint over them with, then I'll repaint them with chalkboard. I'm so excited to get that done!
Our make shift table until we get ours built. I did find chairs on Craigslist 2 weeks ago and plan to reupholster them next week. So I'll be posting pictures of that next week :)
(notice the flowers - my hubby picked them up at the store Wednesday night when he stopped to pick up a few things for me, thought I'd note that he's pretty wonderful!)
Oh and just to give you an idea of how the house is set up, there is the little wall that you see above that separates our family room from our kitchen, our couch is up against the wall.
So we still have so much to do, but we got a lot of painting done! My wonderful visiting teacher and friend was an amazing help with the painting! She did the chalkboard cubby's, and probably painted half our house! We couldn't have done it without her!
We are planning on getting our bedroom done this month! Then all we have left is the bathroom, doors, and door frames to paint! There is an end in sight! Once all the painting is done we plan to do crown molding throughout the house. I hope to get some things on the walls soon too, it's driving me crazy having empty walls. Oh and I'll hopefully get my craft room organized enough to take a quick pic of it tomorrow! I promise to not disappear for so long again! Hope everyone has a great Thursday!


  1. I love it! and I LOVE the color on the walls. It looks so big, my kitchen is tiny and only the appliances and sink fit in it, lol.

  2. Thanks! We love it :) It's so fun to have our own place!
