A Little Sneak Peek at Our Kitchen Makeover

I am discovering that a DIY Kitchen Makeover with an 18 month old is even more challenging than I expected. I know, duh, right?

I did get the cabinets all painted. Hoo-stinkin’-ray! Here’s a peek:

The beadboard is up and painted. We just need to add the trim and the baseboard at the bottom.

So I have to wait until my boys or hubbie are home to distract her in the basement. Unfortunately, what with work, school, jobs, sports, and extra curricular activities, they are not home much. So my baseboards sit lined up in the garage, patiently waiting.
Me, I am waiting too. But not quite so patiently.


  1. I have a white kitchen with butter yellow walls and I love it! I like white soo much better than the now-typical wood, stainless, and granite that every home seems to have nowadays. Our cabinets don’t reach the ceilings, so I collect vintage milkglass pieces and cakestands to display up there. I can’t wait to see the whole kitchen!

    • Sounds so pretty! Milkglass is such a classic and beautiful way to decorate. I bet the tops of your cabinets look fabulous! Sure hope I can come up with something that looks good. 🙂
