The Best Laid Plans...

"...of mice and men often go awry" -  To A Mouse, Robert Burns

Well, this lady's {not a mouse} plans to get her kitchen all pretty by the end of the week did not exactly get accomplished.  I don't even know what I was thinking that I would have everything done and in it's place anyway!  The very very good news is that I was able to get all the painting done, including the cabinets (with new hardware), walls, and ceiling!!!  However, I still have some decorating...floofing and fluffing if you will...and organizing to do before the kitchen is photo ready for the BIG REVEAL.  

I think it would only be fair to give you a little sneaky peaky though...

{it has been raining for days, so the lighting is really bad}

Wall Color- "Lemon Ice" Martha Stewart
Cabinet Color- "Picket Fence" Martha Stewart 

Hopefully in the next couple of weeks {see, I am being realistic now} it will be done and ready to share!

I wish you a great weekend and...

Well now, it will get done! You have your hands full over there. So rest yourself properly and don't over-stress on it.

Lovin' the aqua colander though. I LOVE aqua. You've done quite a bit with a little one. Be proud of yourself!

Oh, don't you just love having white cabinets?!! I'm loving mine with just the primer on, haha! We did get an entire section painted today. Yay! I can't wait to see your reveal. The lemon ice is beautiful, too!

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Easter!

The sneaky peaky is enticing. If your inspiration photo;s are anything to go by it's going to be beautiful.

Been pokin' around here and I love what you are doing with your new home. Your kitchen looks so great and I'm looking forward to seeing it completed. The white is a much better look. Looks like such a cheery home you're creating. Knew I'd want to come back to visit so I just signed on to follow! Happy Easter!

You're such a tease--I'd love to see the entire kitchen. I really like your colander on the plant hook :).
