This is my second try at the whole blogging thing. I neglected my first blog while I was pregnant. But, I have a handsome, healthy baby boy, that is a direct result of my laziness! Now I am ready to get back in the game with a new blog. And, I am ready to finish what I have started in our kitchen. Our kitchen started out as one with maple cabinets with a honey finish, nickle hardware, stainless steel appliances, wood floors with a nutmeg finish, an awful "bubble" light, and blah Formica counters. My wonderful husband bartered website design for some incredible granite counters. I love them!! I think the name is Star White or Diamond White. They are beautiful! They are creamy white with flecks of warm greys and black. So, I thought, why stop there? Why not redo the whole kitchen in this not even 3 year old house? I then proceeded (with the help of Mr. Hughes) to install a white subway tile back splash. It looks good, especially for our first tiling project. Then, we got rid of the AWFUL bubble light... can you tell I hated that thing? Bugs would fly up there and die. Gross! So, we installed a new large schoolhouse light and installed a coordinating pendant in the breakfast nook. The pendant could be a little larger, but we are living with it for now. Now I am ready to paint the cabinets. Our kitchen is small. So I want to brighten the cabinets with creamy white paint on the uppers and possibly paint the lowers grey like this:

I have been toying with idea for some time. I am concerned how the grey will look next to our floors. I am getting the itch to paint them soon. The real project is going to be keeping the little one out of the way!!


  1. I'm just reading blog archives today... too cold to do anything else! Can you tell me where you got your schoolhouse light, or recommend some similar ones? I know Pottery Barn has some, but I'd love to go a little more authentic.
