So much for a lazy day

Well its hard to beleive but i needed a lil me time..Yup i said it! im tired..lol and to be honest i really did not feel like painting today. Whats 1 more day? Can you say PROCRASTINATION… Hahah. Painting the kitchen is really not as easy as I thought.

Last night i decided that i was going to try to wrap up the painting so the hubby could hang the chair rail, off to lowes i go to get the paint! Its funny when you walk in and the people behind the counter know who you are. Well two hours into it and not only are my arms burning but im covered in paint. My hair, face, neck, arms pants and the rug that i have in the kitchen, ya know the small kind you have in front of your sink…ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It looked like i was learning how to fingerpaint..lol sooo i decided that i need to stop because if i dont im just gonna end up runing what i have done already!

Thats when i realized i need a day to just chill out! Well sort of..after laying on the couch with the puppys i figured lets start taking the stuff down so tommorow i can finish the kitchen job, and i came across some mason jars..Paint + Mason Jars = DIY kitchen decore…

So much fo a lazy day!

I was a “Weekend Warrior”

Weekend Warriors–are the men and women who decide I want to update my house this weekend and actually do it!! Well I did it.. I have been saying it for months..ya know like everyone else who says yeah im gonna freshen up the paint in this room, but just never get around to it, I made myself have the time!

mompaintThats me!!

 I have been searching the internet and different sites to find the color I want, I wanted a country kitchen type of look, so I went to Lows on friday night and stopped off in the paint section..WELLLL is that OVERWHELMING OR WHAT!!  I had one color in mind and then I saw  12 others that I could do also..ok time to put up the blinders, get the color I need and get the HELL out of there.. JEEEEZ that was a close one I could have spent alotttt of money in there, cause you know I need this and I need that and OMG I CANT LIVE WITHOUT  THAT..

 

So needless to say I went home and with the samples I had and painted it on the side of the cabinets, cause ya know what if I did not like it.. and I did I loved it.. Soo it began, got up sunday morning because saturday I had company and well took everything off the counters and from the tops of the counters and off came the cabinet doors. Section by section, and let me tell you getting the hard wear off sucked..It was so time-consuming but it had to be done..

So this is what our kitchen looked like before the cabinets were done. VERY WHITE!!!

Well with a lil paint and some time you can change the look of the room very drastically it took me all day to paint with a break or two..I mean it was St. Patrick’s Day, but I did it and here is the finished look..
