How We Do Snow

We have been struggling with our small galley kitchen....I don't mind that it is small.  I don't mind that it is galley.  We have an adjoining dining area that allows family time when I am cooking...I will show that at another time.  What I do mind is our surfaces, and our budget.


We have been trapped in our house for days!  (Normally,  I enjoy being home.  I am a legit homebody.  What is it about being trapped that makes you want to break out?)


We decided to eat up some time with a project.  This is what we have been working on.  Now I have half the kitchen I want (almost)...I guess the other half will come with the next snow storm!
Before

When I can get out of the house,  I need to go to Hobby Lobby for knobs.  I know just the ones I want!

Also need face plates,  If only I had snow shoes.

Ignore the mess!

The wood counter tops are gorgeous and so is that shade of turquoise! My sister is redoing her kitchen and going for a retro look with turquoise paint. What color and line did you use? Hope the snow melts soon!

Looks really cool! Love the counter color against the great blue.

I love your kitchen so far! We have also recently finished a kitchen on a very tight budget, it's so much more satisfying when you can say you did it all yourself.

Love the wood counters. Where did you get them, or I guess maybe I should ask how you made them? We have been thinking about the ikea wood counters, but yours are amazing. Would love to know the details.

Hi! I found you at Make it 4 Monday and am a follower now. I love your counter...I have a similar one on my kitchen island. Great job!

Love that rich wood contrasting the purty aqua - so happy!!


(and I just got through telling my hubby that along with water and toilet paper, I also need to stock up on "Emergency Craft Supplies" should we get any more storms. Looks like you lucked out with a project to keep you busy!)

Great job, love the blue! I'd love to paint my small galley kitchen cabinets like that! Would also like to know what paint color that is...
