A HUGE Project!!

Just wanted to pop in to let you know that I haven't fallen off the face of the earth...just keeping really busy. We have an exciting project going on that has kept me a bit occupied and away from my blog.

Yes, as you can see, we're tearing apart the kitchen and great room.

Ripping up 12 year old carpet and linoleum...and replacing it with hardwood flooring to match the rest of the house!! Yay!!! Go hubby!!! Tear it out!!! And while we're at it, we're taking out the old laundry room flooring too. Beautiful slate grey ceramic tile is going in there. People...I cannot tell you how excited I am to be doing this. Our old floor was in BAD shape. And guess what else? We're getting rid of the old red paint in the kitchen and dining room too...I'm so over the red. It will be replaced with Comfort Gray by Sherwin Williams. Woohoo! Oh and you'll never believe what my husband said last night. Are you ready for this? After he saw the hardwood floors in the kitchen, he said and I quote, "I think we're going to have to paint the kitchen cabinets white. There's a lot of wood in here now." So of course I said, "Oh yes! We definitely have to. I certainly agree!!" Now we have to hurry and do it before he changes his mind. I have been working on him to paint these cabinets for the entire 12 years that we have lived in this house. His response has always been..."Absolutely not!" ~~ And while I'm at it...I'm going to paint the kitchen table too. He already agreed to that! ~~ I will be back soon with some photos as soon as we wrap up this project. ~~~ xo and God Bless, Kathleen

It sounds like you are in heaven, Kathleen, and I don't blame you!! I wish I could get my hubby to agree to some changes around here! I am excited for you and hope you share in the process of the redo!

All the dust and hard work will be worth it when you see all that beautiful hard work!
This song by Mercy Me is a favorite. Even more precious knowing my Mom & Dad are in Heaven now!
Thank you for your visit!

It'll be fabulous! We're in the midst of the same type of renovation. The hardwood floors are done, now we're beginning to prep the cabinets for painting.
