What used to be our kitchen....

I came home the other night to find my kitchen looking like this…

I have to say that I am very excited even though I am sad I missed the demolition part since I love ripping down walls. You can see that the new window is already in and I can't wait to get the room back together. Definitely a lot to do before we can move to the beach full time but we are slowly making process.

If you recall this is what the kitchen used to look like.

While we will only have one window in the new layout I think overall it will be much better and we will gain a ton of counterspace, plus we will have high hat lighting everywhere. I am excited to see how it will come together even if currently it is really cold.

Thanks for reading.

Master Bedroom- repainted again

Ok, its been way to long but summer is a really hard time to keep blogging since there are so many other things to do. So after I've been thinking about repainting the Master bedroom for a while I finally did it. The new color is Benjamin Moore Winterwood and I am loving it. It is more in line with the color scheme that I like (greenish undertones) since the BM Moonshine was too blue for my liking or maybe it is just the lighting in this house. Again I do really want to get new lighting but that's a whole another project.

I will show you a full shot of the room soon but now I have a new area that is teasing me. Our little reading nook doesn't work as is and really is just an area for Brian's clothing to end up (if I am lucky on the chair). In any event I am trying to determine what to do with the side table/ lamp color. Any suggestions?

I am also thinking that I would really like some new lamps for the nightstands but I haven't gotten lucky so far. Maybe if we are moving here full time (which we are thinking about) I can use the ones we already have. So many possibilities….
