kitchen unveiling

We finished up the kitchen last weekend with only a few hick-ups...
like when Addie walked across my freshly painted cabinet doors dragging her toy lawnmower behind her :)
It is a bit overcast today but I have been putting off taking the pictures because I just have not gotten everything put away and picture perfect, but today I realized that just isn't going to happen, so here they are... dimly lit and "lived in".

We painted the door with chalkboard paint...

hung the plate rail...

and painted the soffit and the cabinets to match the other side of the room.

I even found a place to hang my Make It Do embroidery!

And just when I thought I was going to have a relaxing week with my mom, this happened.

I guess something got spilled on the carpet and I did not realize it.  The people who owned the house before us had pets so when ever it is muggy or warm in the house you get a slight pet odor. Well, when you add a glass of water to that and don't clean it up, it turns into the worst funk ever, with no fix other than to tear out the carpet.  We had to do this in Regan's room awhile back too.  I was happy to find the smell did not go past the carpet pad and the floors are not too bad off.  Looks like we have a new project on our hands this weekend... sanding and painting!

wow! from you last post, i read "garage door" and somehow just imagined the inside of the garade door in the boys room. i thought that was a LOT of paint, but would be fun. I like the kitchen/garage door, too. it all looks nice!
