What I've Been Working On!

Hi everyone, I sure have missed you all! I haven't had much time for posting pic's but I have been visiting everyone so that I can keep caught up on what's going on out there in blogland, especially since I bought myself a new laptop, I LOOOOVVVEEE it! I wanted to share with you what I have been slowly but surely working on the last couple of weeks, if you have read my blog for a while you will remember my bunkhouse(apt) that I have on my property, well I haven't finished it yet but thought I'd show the progress, we ripped up the old molding in the dining rm and added some new molding and then I used strips of lattice placed 12" apart and topped it off with chair rail molding, I painted that all white and then above that I painted it Brown Teepee by Behr. I need to get a better pic of the molding and I just realized it's kind of hard to see.
This was before and during the process of the redo but I wanted to show you what it looked like.

This is the kitchen in the bunkhouse and I still need to paint the back splash, I really haven't done anything in here for a while but thought you might like to see what the kitchen looks like (;



One of the two corner cabinets in the kitchen, I have my collection of white dishes and stuff in these two cabinets.









You can see the molding a little better in this pic and of course my fireplace, remember it's still a work in progress so not much on the walls and not many pretties around yet....................















Oh I started adding some lace on the fronts of my china cabinet and I attached them with the metal nailheads, for some reason I just forgot the name of those thingys LOL, but you get the pic right!







another view of the china cabinet, I think I'm going to paint this cabinet cottage white, it really is alot of pink, but I'm still thinkin about it?? Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit and hopefully I'll be back soon to keep ya updated(: Oh and by the way we also intalled new molding in the living rm, it's so pretty, I just looovvveee molding it makes such a difference in a rm, I'm still debating on what color to paint in there so wish me luck!!
Hugs~Kelly

Thank you Kellie for your suggestions. Actually you are pretty close to what I have been thinking about doing in the kitchen. The corbels are one of the things for sure. I will check out that color of paint from Behr too! Maybe even a cabinet door or two with glass insets? Got to confer with the "boss man" first! lol.....Thanks again!
