Kitchen Remodel

Hi! Thanks for stopping by today! To start off, we remodeled our kitchen on a budget meaning no new appliances and we used the existing countertops. I painted our kitchen blue several years ago and loved it then but hate it now. My decor style has definitely changed over the years and this new kitchen reflects that. Here's what we did to give the kitchen a more updated look...

  • Took down the soffits above the cabinets
  • Removed the whole section of drawers below the kitchen window
  • Painted all the cabinets white
  • Added trim to the top of the cabinets
  • Built a wood vent hood over the existing hood
  • Built a kitchen island with drawers and a door to hide trash can
  • Built a bar on the window to sit at
  • Made a curtain for the window
  • Added a cutting board/plate holder with bead board
  • New light fixtures (super affordable ones!)
  • Took out cabinets above sink and added a shelf
  • New hardware on cabinets

I absolutely love how everything turned out! Below is a picture of what it looked like before.

Flush Mount Lighting Under $200

Welcome! We live in an older home, which I love, but the ceilings are low everywhere. I am always looking for flush mount or semi-flush mount lighting options for our home. I searched through hundreds of light options and found 20 stylish yet affordable options all under $200! I have the #2 light in my kitchen and it works so that one is under $50!

Spring Refresh!


Hi friends! If you are coming from my friend Jen at Noting Grace welcome! Spring is finally here and it's my favorite time of year. I love the transition from winter to spring, it just seems like a fresh start! I also love all that comes with spring...the storms, flowers, and of course warm weather! We have been on a major spring cleaning spree here at the house and it feels so good to get rid of some things and de-clutter. 

 I'm joining some blogger friends to share how we incorporated spring into our homes!

I love to add a few touches of spring around the house to freshen it up.

Jenna from Wife in Progress blog organized this whole blog hop so I hope you enjoy it!
