our *new* kitchen

through the door, originally uploaded by SIMPLY.MADE.

as you walk through the door of our kitchen, you'll now be greeted by a bright color!! Thanks to many of our friends, our kitchen was treated with a fresh coat of Birmingham Cream this past weekend. The cabinets had a trim added to them, and all new hardware. It's amazing what a difference it makes!

here's another view of the kitchen cabinets. As you can see, the cabinets are only a few shades lighter than the walls, I love it. I think that the kitchen can be called "finished" for now- but not yet complete. We still have to figure out some of the little additions to make it even more welcoming... curtains, 'artwork', small area rugs?? So many possibilities still.

this message board was a new addition to the mix- a nice little place to display some of the photos, notes and artwork from our little friends. This once all covered the refrigerator, but now finds a home here.
We still haven't re-hung the under the cabinet can opener... and I think I might like it that way... maybe a little laziness here and there isn't such a bad thing, it helps you find new happiness.

Thanks again to Frances and Lee, Mary and Bernie, Bob and Mary Jo, Stephen and Lillian and to Sara, who jumped in to help after a previous appointment fell through (or maybe it's just that she was trying to keep up with someone else...?)

WOW, Leslie!!! The kitchen looks fabulous. I had not taken the time to really look at the finished product before we left.
This blog site is a real treat for me! Thanks for keeping it so well.
Love, Mia

Wow! I think that looks great. Very yellow, not peach. =) You're so good at that stuff. Can't wait to see it in real life.
