Cabinets are Done!

Well, they are 99% done anyway. The door pulls came in the mail, just about the time Tyler's graduation party started yesterday. I will get them on this week, but I'm taking a breather first. Here's a teaser of how the cabinets turned out. I will show more later, when I get the knobs on.

The cabinets took at least twice as long as I thought they would...I always'd think I'd learn! Now that the graduation is over, I still have much to do, but at a more sane pace. The next improvement will be removing the border in the living room, and painting the kitchen, living room, and back hall. Then on to painting the counters, but I need a bit of rest first.

I have two jewelry parties this week, and with the heat, that is going to be enough.  I may head to the cool basement and start sorting for a yard sale in August.  I can drag boxes over, plop my butt in the recliner down there and sort away.  There's even a TV.  Maybe I can catch a little HGTV, or maybe I'll enjoy the quiet.  I hate most of the shows on there anymore.  They used to be good...not so much anymore.

Tyler's graduation was a success! It was very hot Saturday, but it cooled off later, with a nice breeze. I was so busy keeping food stocked and visiting, that I had no time to take pictures. My daughter snapped a couple of the cake and picture board though.

Here's a couple or thirteen pictures of my handsome dude.



  1. The cabinets look great and I LOVE the pulls, gorgeous! I am so glad that all went well with the party and the pictures are so sweet, they grow so fast. What is he doing in the fall if I may ask?
    I hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend. :)

  2. Hi there!! LOVE those drawer pulls! I'll bet the kitchen looks ten times brighter now.
    Looking at your son's pictures almost made my eyes tear, and I don't even know him! Seeing him from a little boy, to a young man must be bittersweet for you. LOVE that last picture!!!lol.

  4. I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.
