I am excited today for two reasons. The first reason is that my kitchen cabinets are dunzo! The only thing left to do is put on the hardware and rehang. I am impatiently waiting for sleepy head to join the land of the awakened and get to work! I also got my little nook in the kitchen painted yesterday. I am trying to adhere to a schedule of clean one room, do one load of laundry, and work on painting the kitchen and dining room each day.
The second reason I am excited is that I am able to share my first tour with you of someone else’s kitchen. Specifically my awesome friend’s Allison and Chad Wilson. This is not a local home, but they are local folks, both from Harrison County, WV. Several years ago they moved to Charlotte and bought a small two bedroom, one bathroom brick ranch home. Chad is the owner of Wilsons Natural Landscaping, llc., very talented guy, if you live in the Charlotte area and need some landscaping work, he is your man! Anyway, a little more than a year ago, they welcomed a baby girl, little Lola Adelaide, into the world, so they decided it was time for a bigger house. They loved their property so they decided to add an addition. So they completely renovated their kitchen, the one bathroom, and then added a screened in porch, a family room, laundry room, master bedroom, bathroom, and let’s not forget two humongous walk in closets, one for her and one for him. On the outside, you cannot even tell it is an addition at all. And they did an excellent job. I went to visit them after baby Lola was born, and I fell in love with their kitchen. The love affair was mainly with the cabinets in particular, but the whole thing was really great. The cabinets they had made and painted by a cabinet maker, and they are a creamy yellow. I was smitten! So when we bought this house, and I knew I was going to paint the oak cabinets which were living in 1990, their cabinets were the inspiration for the color I chose. So without further ado, here is Allison, Chad, Lola, and their kitchen renovation.
A shot of some of the Fiesta Ware. They use this stuff on a daily basis, but it is still pretty.
