When we bought our current home in 2006 there were quite a few home improvements we had to do before moving in, and many more STILL on the list!! It's never ending! I absolutely love my kitchen and it's layout to the family room, but I had wanted to re-paint the cabinets from its original natural wood to white when we moved in but at the time there was only so much that we could do to fit in the budget and had to stick with the priorities.

A white kitchen makes feel happy and refreshed. It seems that it's the new popular and trendy thing to do to kitchens but I think the time has come to jump on the bandwagon. After years and months of convincing the hubby, he's finally ready to take the plunge with me. Now we just need to decide, do we try and save money and get our hands messy with paint or hire the handyman?

My current domain :) the kitchen really is the heart of the home. it's amazing how much time I spend in here. and yes that is 3 boxes of girl scout cookies! originally a total of 5! I couldn't just buy one after those little puppy dogs eyes are asking you if you want to buy to support the cause

a few of the beautiful inspirations
Love the stainless steel, but unfortunately my black beauties will stay!

if we can fit it in the budget, would love to add a subway tile backsplash.

how cool

I've been looking for some cute ideas for Saylor's classmates Valentines, and saw this cool idea!! I think three year old's are a little to young, and the mom's might think I'm crazy, but I'll definitely file this one in the craft folder!
