I included this shot not to just show you my dirty breakfast dishes, but because you can see how damaged the wall was over the sink and you can see where I had laid out tile that I was thinking of using. I'm really glad I didn't go with a dark colored tile.
Beadboard is up and now he's adding another outlet for me & raising them both an inch or two. I know he didn't have fun cutting out all the little corners around the window but he did a great job.
I'll be working on the record cabinet next, so we can have our kitchen island. Also on the menu is a fresh coat of paint on the cabinets.
These are so special to me, I just had to point them out.
My mom made these sweet jars for me in 1997. They've been moved around quite a bit and little hands (& not so little hands) have dinged them up looking for cookies...I just love them. She handpainted them for me and wrote little notes to me on them..
Good things to remember. Thanks Mom!
I'll be including this on Metamorphosis Monday at Between Naps on the Porch, Make it for Monday at Cottage Instincts and the DIY Project Parade at DIY Show Off.
