I literally walk in and smile everyday…it is such a happy space! The kitchen update is almost ready….I wanted to share with you a few pictures of the space. We are updating the lighting—just need to make a few cord covers for them. I know you all are excited to see. Everything has really come together so nicely. The cabinets have been painted white…the walls got a fresh coat of steel blue…the ceilings and trim—everything is so fresh and bright now. … Here is are few pics….




DSC_0233The new “pantry” has been so much fun to “dress”!

We chose to display the pretty food…and keep the

not so pretty food behind cabinet doors. The baskets

underneath have been very user friendly. We keep

snacks in one and canned items in the other….DSC_0235

I am so excited to show you how we are updating the lighting in the space. We really scored some deals on these lights! I tweeted a picture of this fixture “before”…holy brass batman :) And here she is …singing again :)








Just a few more touches…and I will show you the whole space :)

  2. Hi there! I am loving the ‘sneak peek’ so far, and can’t wait for the total reveal! Just one question…. I have been looking for some containers for storage in my pantry. Can you offer any ideas where to get a few at a decent (inexpensive) price?

    Thanks! :)

    1. Hi there and thanks for the sweet words! I got the cute paisley storage at Homegoods ( I think it was about $6) The pantry jars all came from Walmart in the kitchen section. The large cracker jars are about $6 …which is the cheapest place I have found them. Good luck!! And the big reveal will be soon :)
