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..

OMG I could stare at it all day long…Really for my first solo project I think I did good!..

 

Farmingdales 1st St.Patricks Day Parade

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and im sure quite a few of you are feeling the effects of a long day yesterday.. I know i am..from painting my kitchen though..heheh..Seriously thats why im hurting. Well i wanted to share with you a few pictures from the parade idid go to in my home town of Farmingdale. It was the first one that they have had and it turned out to be a great day and there were so many people who came down to support it..People were all dressed up showing off there Green hair, shirts, gloves, sneakers and even some of the dogs were dressed up to. What was also cool about it was that after the parade they had a bounce house for the kids and our Fire Dep,( where my hubby is a volunteer)  had potato soup& there was cotten candy also. I was just a great day for the kids to run around and get some energy out!
