Owl Kitchen!

Some of you know that I've been wanting to paint and redecorate around here and I'm THRILLED to say that one room is checked off the list! My Kentucky Kids Consignment Sale money helped me get the things I wanted for my kitchen and I'm super excited to have a change! I wish I would've taken some "before" pictures but to help give you a mental picture, the walls were yellow and I had pineapple/fruit decorations in it. (It was starting to look a little "Granny" to me and I wanted a new look!) I had been spying this owl stuff in town and mentally drooling over it. I got it all from Kirklands and Burkes and I still want to get the canister set. (Hopefully, Kirklands will mark it down lower than $39!) I picked out "Cozy Cottage" paint color and inspite of our inexperience as painters, it turned out fine. Saturday was an extremely busy day for us and painting probably should've waited but my new things had been sitting for a week and a half and I was ready to go for it! Anthony had already put a new alternator in his truck, fixed the lawn mower, mowed/weed-eated, and cleaned the gutters out. I helped him clean out the gutters then I ran to town to get the paint while he got the kitchen completely ready. Ya'll know that pulling out appliances requires cleaning behind them, (which hadn't been done in a LONG time around here) so my fingers scrubbed until they hurt! I also fell in my bathroom while changing clothes (funny story I won't post here...lol) during the wait for the first coat to dry. Needless to say, we were pretty wore out that night and very sore the next morning at Church! My leg is still sore and the bruise from my fall has actually gotten bigger....weird! But it was worth it all! lol! I'm already planning what I want to do with the other rooms and looking forward to more changes! =)

I'm thinking about ordering some thing from "Stitch Me Primitives" (my talented friend, Angela) for that empty wall by the refrigerator!
    
 



My sweet hubby jumped right in and helped me put the kitchen back together. He hung the valances right out of the packages (which I wanted to iron or fluff in the dryer) but they don't look too bad the way he hung them! =)

    1. :)Thanks! Evidently, owls are the thing right now. I've been seeing them every where. Kirklands and Burkes is where I got my stuff, but even Cracker Barrel had some the other day!
