Headed towards the finish line!

Hello friends....YES...I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

This past weekend, I installed the beadboard on the sides of the cabinets and the outside refrigerator wall.
The island got wrapped in beadboard and I sewed the sink curtain.

I'll share a couple of photos of my progress...but not too much. Don't want to spoil the big reveal.


Love the beadboard on the cabinet sides


It gives it such a clean and professional look.


I still have to trim out the corners and paint it to give a more seamless look.


This is the 8 ft wall which faces the family room. Huge difference in presentation when you walk into the room.
This weekend I will be installing beadboard on the back splash and adding a few extra surprise features.
I am hoping to be able to show all of you the fruits of my labor very soon.

I thought I would post some photos of my inspiration kitchens.  Lets see how close I come.

love the open shelves
clean lines
beadboard island and backsplash
more beadboard
kitchen sink skirt..love it!!
love the clock and shelves

Until next time...be kind and stay creative

I love it! I can't wait for the reveal. Still working (slowly) on mine. Trying to figure out how I'm going to keept he cat out of the lower cabinets when I remove the doors! lol. I may have to just box everything out and scrub the insides before I put it back.

HOw wonderful getting it all organized ....looks great.

When I re-do my cabinets....they will be green. But....a very soft sage-y green... with a bit of rub off technique ..... deep burgundy underneath..... showing through here and there...
