After months of struggling to find the time to get these projects finished, I am so excited this day is finally here. It’s an absolute gift to be able to express your creativity in any given space but when it came to the kitchen which was not my domain, there were a few requests: the maple cabinets could not be painted, there had to be a kitchen herb garden and finally there has to be as much open space for cooking and prep work as possible. Is that a challenge I hear?
I lobbied hard for a color of grout named Bone but in the end we chose Alabaster. It was supposed to be a pale gray that I think is going to look really nice given we have black granite countertops, maple cabinets and a wall colored aptly named Cream in My Coffee.
One of my home goals this year was to finish the kitchen. There’s wasn’t a major renovation planned just a few updates one of them being adding a backsplash. It didn’t take us very long to decide we wanted to use white subway tile in a basket weave pattern. But we struggled for months to find the time to actually complete the project. I knew I had to get an action plan together including a timeline. I gave myself until the end of February to finish the task and called my bestie S to the rescue.
Welcome to the Something to Talk About Link Party #6! I hope you guys had a happy weekend.
I swear I feel I was JUST saying, Goodbye January, Hello February and yet here I am saying Goodbye February, Hello March.
It all started when I found this shamrock image on Pinterest. I printed the images on yellow card stock. I know what you may be thinking, “Shamrocks are green CoCo.” But I plan to make these shamrocks gold, so I really want to make sure the gold glitter glass stands out. I coated the shamrocks with glue and added a generous helping of glitter glass.
I bought this dry sink over the Christmas break and I needed to get it into the booth quickly so I didn’t have a chance to share the entire process with you. I painted it with my own version of homemade chalk paint in one of my favorite colors by Valspar called Lambs Wool. It’s a very soft and neutral color.
