Kitchen Remodel Update

Hey, I have been getting quite a few questions about the kitchen remodel. Sorry I have been MIA. Its just taking a little longer than expected...

A few hiccups, but everything is pretty much done, all I have left is to install the back-splash which WILL be done this weekend!

I'm not leaving my house until it is DONE!

But I wanted to post some pictures of the before (terrible, terrible, terrible)  bad photos, but I'm afraid it would have broken my new camera ;)

Here is the before:

 My epic fail of trying to paint them, horrible horrible, complete with the boob light in the ceiling :) Dishes in the sink and dinner in the crock pot :) Hey, I'm keepin it real...

View from the other side, the painting went so bad, I stopped :) But after a while the man in brown starting bringing me presents and there was a glimmer of light at the end of the tunnel :)

 I went to Lowe's for my back splash

 Then this began after the demolition finished. My husband did that in all of a couple hours so I don't have any photos of that. It was a messssss, and the dust was the worst. I am neurotic about dust anyway (its my only enemy!). I swear I would clean it all up and turn around it would be back. Not FUN at all!

These are real grainy and ugly but trust me, it was a beautiful site!!

Here is the last picture I took before the counter was installed, before the molding and painting. Again an excellent view (compared to the before ;) )

After the back splash is done, I will do a bunch of tutorials, like converting from a double sink to a single HUGE sink... 10 Things to expect, like possible divorce, lol JUST KIDDING, but seriously fighting happens, which should be warned before attempting to remodel your own kitchen.

Stay tuned the most amazing photos I could every take through a camera will be coming shortly!!!

Any questions please ASK, it was a huge job, I have documented most of the process in my head and I'm sure there is some good advice in there somewhere!!

Pintrest Wreath

I know I have been MIA the last couple weeks but Spring has sprung in my neck of the woods and I have been trying to purge as much as I can.

But I have been searching pintrest for great spring ideas and I found this amazing wreath, which I'm sure many of you have seen.

However, when you go to the site that published the photo there is no information of where to get it, or how to make it :(.  So I am here to the rescue.

It was the cheapest, easiest wreath I have ever made.

The flowers are from Michael's in bunches and I just stuffed them into the wreath so it was full and fluffy.  The bunches were 150 and the metal wreath form was 200 dollars, I used 12 bunches of flowers to fill my wreath.  Here is mine:

Not quite as neat but I can just pull the bunches out and pop them back in. I also made a purple and pink one for my mom's house... Like this one

Here are some others as well...
