Just To Say Hello!!

Just a quick hello and I haven't taken a picture from this view looking from my family room into my dining room so I thought I would share this.Oh and I almost forgot I ordered the red ticking pillows from Pottery Barn for my couches, they were on clearance and I think it will bring in a touch of red from my kitchen, I can't wait to get them!! I hope everyone is having a great week (;

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 (;

I'm Still Here!!

I just wanted to say hi and let you all know I am still alive!! I have had major comp problems here and then procrastinated coming back and I'm not sure why, I guess the longer you go without blogging the easier it is to stop. I have painted my dining/family rm gray but I am ready for a change again, crazy isn't it! I have the only house that is losing square footage because the paint , LOL, that's what my husband says!! What do you think of the gray?I have been trying to find some new dining chairs, I want someof the pressed back chairs, I think thats what they are called, I used to see them all the time but now I want some and can't find any, I would like to paint them white and distress them. I hope you all don't hate me for being gone for soooooo long?? Hugs~Kelly
