My kitchen and dining room update!

Well I decided to paint my lower part of my cabinets red, if you remember I only had the cabinets under my sink red the rest of them were white. It all started when I found the new lights I replaced the pendant lights over the sink and stove and also changed the one over my island, they are a rubbed bronze finish, they have cute little linen shades. I also replaced my faucet , all of these were purchased at Home Depot. I am really enjoying the dark touches in my house, small changes can make a big difference. Of course this all lead to me changing my wall color in my dining and family room, I used Homestead Resort Buff(satin finish) by Valspar, I love it, its so soft and I wasn't liking the gray, it just wasn't me but I had to give it a try anyways!
See my new little accent chair next to my hutch, it has the cutest ruffles and all of my colors in the slipcover, LOVE IT!! The chair is from Pier 1 (;


I also refinished my farm table top, I sanded the finish off and did a dark stain, I am lovin that too! I still want to replace my dining chairs or redo these but I haven't had a chance to do them yet.


I hope everyone has a great weekend (;

Kelly,
I saw that chair at Pier 1! It looks so pretty in your dining room. This new color scheme is a great choice. This is much warmer than the gray. Beautiful!
PS I'm jealous of your red kitchen cabinets. They are lovely!

As always.. You've done a Beautiful job!! Love that pier 1 chair! Saw that in the ad & fell in love too! :) Where do you get your energy to do all the painting you do? I'm sanding my oak railing in my living room getting it ready to paint white & it's taking me forever! I guess I should get off of here & get busy! lol!

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Everything looks so pretty, Kelly! I especially love the new lighting in the kitchen, and I don't usually get excited about lamps or lighting fixtures. ;)

Would you so kindly share the brand and stain color you used on your table top? I'm getting ready to embark on a similar project and there are so many choices of stain it makes my head swim when I start looking at them! The color you used seems to be exactly what I am looking for. Thanks!

Sonnie said...

Waving Hi Kelly! Good to see you on here again so soon. Love, love that chair - Perfect for your home.
NO matter what you do to your home, it's my favorite :)
Take care - Sonnie

June said...

Oh it's just beautiful! Those lights are an amazing choice. I used to have a lot of red in my house. I love red. My livingroom sofa is red under that white slip. The little Pier 1 chair is darling!
Isn't it funny how little changes give you such a pick up?!

Isn't it fun to change it up a bit?! Love it...doesn't it seem odd to see wood tones again? I'm working in a few too. Thank you so much for the sweet encouraging words for me and my family! We are doing a bit better.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

LOVE it!! The darker touches really add a warmth and contrast to your rooms. Aren't oiled rubbed bronze fixtures wonderful!? I have some and like the fact that they don't show water spots like the stainless.

Keep up the great work!

Goodness....don't we LOVE our spaces. Yours is simply beautiful.

I am trying to hard to get brave and paint a wall or two in our beige walled house.
I am leaning towards a blue/green.
The touches you added are very, very nice.

知道他有了外遇
面對他的低聲下氣妳冷嘲熱諷、無理取鬧
妳瘋狂似的大吵大鬧
甚至到他的公司去亂、向他的親友抱怨、向鄰居們哭訴…
妳把他的外遇鬧的人盡皆知
最後,妳把他的愧疚消耗殆盡…
最後,妳把他想要回頭的念頭打消…
最後,妳自己把他推向外遇的第三者身邊…

人家都說男人到大陸都會外遇包二奶
老婆淚眼說擔心他外遇
他了解老婆的擔心,只好用錢去彌補分離的缺憾
漸漸的,老婆的電話愈來愈少…
她說,她是怕自己太依賴
漸漸的,他知道其實是她有了外遇
於是,面對自己外遇的行為,他忽然覺得好過了些…

I just caught wind of this you published. Really it's a good stuff for those who are looking for Copper Kitchen Sinks.I would like to tweet on it and keep my eye behind at every moment you blogging.

外遇---偷來的時間、偷來的伴侶、偷來的愛情
或許新鮮刺激,或許瘋狂美好,但這一切,終究是偷來的…
外遇傷害了一個幸福的家庭
或許你會說:問題其實早已存在,外遇並不是傷害的唯一因素
但是內心深處其實你知道,這只是外遇的藉口!
建築在傷害別人之下所得到的愛情,終究難以幸福…

顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
早知道他的出軌,癡心的守候最後他終究還是想要離婚
朋友勸我抓姦,但是我擔心他一氣之下會決裂的提出離婚要求
我愛他,願意作出一切只為挽回
所以我等、我默不吭聲、我在他面前強顏歡笑
多少夜裡,他用敷衍的藉口不歸
而我假裝相信,卻淚濕了枕頭...
顫抖著手,我拿不穩那份薄薄的離婚協議書
啞著聲音,我告訴他我絕對不會離婚去成全他們
只是,我不知道不離婚,懲罰的是他們,還是我自己...

就像許多外遇故事一樣
男人有了外遇想要離婚,但是女人死不放手
所以他藉故發揮、所以她不甘示弱
他總是說這樣不可理喻的女人俗不可耐才讓他想要離婚
她總是說這樣背棄婚姻的男人她絕對不會離婚讓他們好過

記憶中我從沒有過快樂的童年、幸福的家庭
父親在家的時候總是爭執不斷
父親離家的時候母親總是數落不斷

我總是想,為什麼不離婚
這樣的婚姻意義何在?

母親認為離婚就是輸了
但是她不知道,自己身陷在漩渦中無法掙脫...
