My wonderful, sweet, fabulous, can't-say-enough-good-things-about-him, father in law offered to paint my kitchen for me! When I say paint I mean, cabinets, walls, trim...the works! I knew the cabinets basically just needed a new coat of white paint, but I really wanted to change the hardware. Unfortunately, I have a LOT of cabinets and drawers so it would be very expensive to change them all. So I decided to leave the nickel knobs on the cabinets and just change out the hardware on the drawers from knobs to nickel cup pulls. The walls were painted Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter. LOVE this color so much! You may remember I used it in our bathroom renovation. We also painted one wall with chalk board paint! I have been wanting to do this for quite some time. I was super happy that J was totally on board with it. And this is the result:
I am so happy with it! Such a huge improvement. So since my kitchen was all fresh and renewed I decided to start decorating for the holidays. Of course I had to deck out my chalk wall:
And then I put up my tree! Of course the Little Missy has completely redecorated the entire bottom half;) I only put soft or shatter proof ornaments down there so it was no biggie:
A little mantle decor was in order:
They love having everything up already!
I can't forget my tree in my dining room...I love this one because I found the prettiest leopard ribbon for it:
I made a snowman for the front door. Thanks Pinterest!
J and I were invited to a Red Cross Benefit...here is J's goofy best friend:
And while we were there we met rapper Al Kapone who is an M-town native!
And finally...my little princess is finally into princesses! Cinderella to be specific;) She got to meet Cinderella in Disney and she fell in love. Now it's pretty much her favorite movie and she loves to dress up in her Cinderella gown. Precious!!!
I definitely need to do a Disney blog post. I also need to print all my Disney pictures for an album. One thing at a time people! Sorry to be away so long!
