kitchen before... and almost after

We're almost done! There are just a couple tiny tweaks left to make and then the kitchen is d-o-n-e!

Here's the before we were dealing with... dark wood cabinets and a not quite right shade of yellow for the walls...

Here's some of the "during" photos...

(tape on - primer check!)

(sewing curtains from fabulous reproduction vintage style fabric!)

And... here are a few *glimpes* of the after...


(will share this recipe soon... 2 dozen cookies were consumed in less than 24 hours...)

(do you see those white cabinets?? {sigh}... I am so happy...)


(John loves old fashioned coke bottles... so I used one as decoration!)

(3 of these aprons are truly vintage.. 2 from the 50's and 1 from the 30's!)

The Big Reveal is soon to come! :)
