30 Day Organizing Challenge!!!!
To Join the 30 day challenge please visit I'm An Organizing Junkie!

I had to post this.. We were going to do it anyway, but not yet. This got us motivated to get our little behinds in gear and get a move on.


We renovated our kitchen when we moved into our house in 1999. Well it was my husband's first project so there were "areas" he did not like such as some area's he spackled but were not sanded enough, the cabinets were too low. So we decided to tackle this room as we knew it was an inexpensive project. Here are the before pictures.






We took down all the cabinets, spackled, sanded, painted the walls and ceiling. As we took down the cabinets we got rid of tons of things in our cabinets that we never used, boxed them up and we will be having a Yard sale sometime soon!!! We put the cabinets back up, we restocked the shelves ever so neat and clean. All of the cabinets are so much more spacious now that we don't have tons of expired food and old dishes and glasses that did not belong.

We then added hardware on the cabinets which i absolutely love. We do still have to put trim around the windows and floor and hang up the curtains, but he is working crazy hours at work and it will have to wait. I have to say it was a big inexpensive project and I am so pleased at the outcome. Take a look for yourself. I love my husband!!! He is the best.. All of this we did in one weekend.. Yup one weekend.. I am so proud of us.. And I feel so much better about people seeing my kitchen~!

Wow. I'm impressed! Frankly, I can't even imagine trying to do things like move cabinets! And by the way, I love the color of those walls!

Ditto! I'm totally envious of this kitchen, not only because of the nice job y'all did, but because of that wonderful wall color!

Thanks for stopping by my new blog and taking the time to leave a comment! Happy organizing. :-)
