You want a little teaser?

Of course you do! I figured since this makeover is taking longer than expected due to the fact that I keep wanting to move things and add things and make things and fix things and paint things and all that fun stuff, I better give you a little sneak peek.
You've already seen my lamp makeover here
And my bar stool makeover here.
Now I will give you a little glimpse of something I did in my kitchen. It's going to give away the fact that we did repaint the kitchen but it's just a small portion. But it's a fun portion due to what I did. I personally really like it. (Of course if I didn't I probably wouldn't have done it.)
What do you think?
You may have to click on the picture to see it better.

Having looked at the things I made over, you know, the lamp and the stools, do you see a theme here? It's all actually coming along really well and I'm so happy with the transformation. My handy husband had to get in the attic to move the phone line so that I could move the computer on the other side of the room. He's so handy and without him I couldn't have done most of this makeover. I love you honey!!

Oh and he's so jealous of my eyeballing abilities. He said if he would have been doing the lettering he would have been there all day with his level and measuring tape LOL. I've always eyeballed everything and I don't think it came out to bad. What do you think? I know most of you probably wouldn't have done that in your kitchen but what can I say, I'm a goof ball! LOL!

Oh and don't forget when it's all said and done, I'm having a giveaway so keep your eye out. It's not to far away!!

Happy Caffeinated Hugs to You!


  1. Of course it is GREAT! I love that commercial....."I'm just a goof, looking for my ball."!!!!
