Kitchen Cabinets ~ Finally Finished AND They Now Have Knobs

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.

Rumor ~ My Little Gossip Bench

A few weeks back I was out at one of my favorite antique shops in the Heights ~ its called Grace Hart & Company ~ they have everything from glass, jewelery, furniture, antiques, lamps, etc. ~ you get the idea.  That day I was really out looking for something different.  As I walked into the shop, this precious piece is outside screaming "take me home" ~

I knew when I saw it that it had to be mine ~ the price was a little high but I REALLY wanted this.  Normally if something is overpriced, I can walk away from it ~ but this piece I loved.  Why?  Well, could it be because I knew that "back in the days" (in my younger days)......I always wanted one of these to sit down and talk on the phone on.  My parents had a phone but we never had one of these ~ so, now that I can buy my own things, why not?  So, I brought her home and named her RUMOR ~ I changed the color and reupholstered the seating area.  Here is RUMOR now:

I think she looks a little more modern now ~ don't you think?  I have her on sale for $125 so we shall see how long she lasts ~

Thanks for stopping by and May God Bless You ♥
