Nope, still not done! Urghh......but here's a sneak peek!

Hi All!  So the magnitude of my kitchen/dining room re-do has far exceeded the amount of work that I expected.  I can't wait until it is finished.  We have ran in to some problems along the way which have just made the project drag on. It also does not help that I keep adding more "smaller" projects on to the big one.

Anyway, I have gotten some areas completed so I am just going to show you dribs and drabs.

Here is one of the drawers that is finished in my kitchen. I splurged on the drawer pulls, they were 5.00 each at Home Depot. I saved on the cabinet knobs though and bought those in bulk so they were only about 1.00 each.

I know this picture is dark, sorry! These are the dining room cabinets that I showed in an earlier post but here it is compete with the bead board. You cant see it very well but underneath the cabinets is a row of wine racks.  I will try to get a better pic for the final reveal.
Remember my dresser I finished earlier in the week? Well here it is in it's new resting place.

I had this chalkboard that I made a year or so ago and this shelf I purchased at Goodwill a couple years ago. They were red and  just painted them to match the new cabinet color.
Some pretties in the dining room.
This is in the corner of my dining room. It's an old icebox. The lid comes off and I was thinking about turning it in to a planter but for now it is a nice place for my big rooster to perch on.

Well that's all folks!  I wish I could have finished and showed you the whole thing completed but there just isn't enough hours in the day.  My hubby works all day and  I am home with the six kids for Summer so needless to say very little is getting done during the day lol...

Until later
