About 5 weeks ago I started work on my kitchen cabinets.....don't know why I decided to do them at this time but I was so tired of seeing them in that boring, ugly, brown color. I had already had a backsplash put in about 2 years ago and I had gotten estimates on re-doing the cabinets ~ its not cheap. Now my kitchen is not very big so when they quoted me over $1,000 I said o.k., I'll wait. So, I waited and waited and I finally decided to do it myself. Here is what they look like now ~
Somehow I really enjoy coming into my kitchen now ~ the hard work paid off. I had always wanted white cabinets but since my backsplash was more of a tan/tan color, I decided to go with this color on my cabinets ~ I think they came out pretty nice. AND I know have crystal knobs on each one of them.

Finished here then I have to stop by the pharmacy to pick up my husband's prescriptions ~ he's a diabetic and its very important that I get these medicines ~ o.k., so, make another stop ~ sorry, no pictures here. Then the real fun begins ~ I am in the Heights ~ this is an area in the Houston area where you can find all kinds of antiques and really different things. While I'm in one of the shops ~ I find this great piece ~ I think its beautiful. They used to call these "gossip benches" ~ remember when you would have to actually SIT DOWN and talk on the phone? No cell phones back in the days ~ well, I couldn't resist this one so I brought it home with me.....
While I was at this shop (Grace Hart & Co.), I decided to talk to the owner, Grace Hart herself. I started asking about putting some of my pieces in her shop ~ this place has tons of traffic and is in the middle of antique shopland ~ perfect opportunity. Ms. Hart and I talked and we came to an agreement that was favorable for the both of us ~ YEAAAHHH.....I am now going to start selling pieces at this great shop ~ in the Heights. I'm really excited about this opportunity and can't wait to get started. Now have to decide which pieces to take and which ones to sell myself ~ more to come......so, Younique727 is now going to be at Grace Hart & Co ~ Houston, Tx.......
Wow ~ I thank God for all the opportunities HE is placing before me ~ I will not let HIM down. I also want to thank all my customers, friends and fans for the continued support.....I ♥ all of you.
Thanks for stopping by and May God Bless You

Aren't these just beautiful? I must say everyone else thinks they are too ~ they have sold within three days of posting them. Now how great is that? I love the curves, the details and the fact that there aren't too many of these around anymore ~ the auctions are a great place to find these but they too know how popular they are as they are not very cheap but they are so worth it♥

Now, on top of trying to keep up with all this, I had this SMART idea to start repainting my kitchen cabinets ~ yeppers, they have looked this horrible for over 7 years now and I decided to start painting them NOW......what am I thinking, right? Here is what they looked like before;
Here is what they will eventually all look like ~ I'm not finished yet ~ its a work in progress:
This was the end of a tiring but much accomplished day ~ all is fine at younique727 ~
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day ♥
