Did you all have a nice Thanksgiving?
WOW – I must say that I enjoy having my parents close by, but helping them over the past couple weeks has been crazy!! I re-finished their kitchen cabinets per my Mom’s request and that is what I have been doing since last Friday…..not yesterday, but last Friday. They finally got moved in the day before Thanksgiving and we have been busy unpacking and trying our best to get them settled. I thought I had lots of stuff that I didn’t want to get rid of, but man you should see all of the stuff from my parents home. Yep, my Dad doesn’t ever want to get rid of anything and as much as my Mom would like to just pitch alot of the stuff…..well, Dad tends to get his way (lol).
My Mom found out rather quickly that this house is smaller then their condo that they were living in, but she is making do. Alot of her great knick knacks are in the basement right now and I am not sure that she will have the room for all of them. I can so see her selling some of it, but hopefully she will let me go through some of it first (lol). Hopefully she will get more organized soon because I need the rest. I am so behind on my orders, my swaps and soooo late in getting my Christmas decorations out. Yep, I don’t even have my tree up yet, but hopefully tonight that will happen. Pictures on that coming soon!!
So, are you ready to see before and after pictures of my Mom’s kitchen cabinets? Well, let’s take a look shall we? This is definitely a great transformation!!
What do you think? I was definitely pleased with the way that they turned out and I can’t believe how much of a face-lift it gave the kitchen. Did you notice the paint on the walls? They liked my Bleached Wheat paint so much that they used it in their kitchen, family room and master bedroom and bath. It definitely helped give the rooms a boost compared to the plain white walls.
Here are some close-ups of some of Mom’s lights and her bathroom light which looks great against her red walls.
The electrician is due to come out on Tuesday to hang her Whaler light and that will be hung over her island in her kitchen. It will look beautiful I am sure. Of course I will share pictures of that soon. Well, I better run for now. I have to stain some wood knobs for my Mom’s cabinet doors and drawers and finish up a few orders to ship on Monday. Hopefully if all goes well, I will have my trees and the rest of my decorations up tonight. Enjoy your weekend everyone!!
Until Next Time….. Blessings, Lisa
