Bathroom Update

As I mentioned in this post, we also decided to get our master (not very masterly) bathroom's vanity painted along with the kitchen.  We made a last minute decision on this and therefore just used the same paint color as the kitchen cabintes, BM Linen White.  It isn't a major upgrade, but a definite improvement over the formally oak cabinet.  Here are some before and afters.



I picked that rug up at Target last week, I really love how it looks in there.  Took me over two years to find the perfect rug!  The cabinet knobs are temporary, from Homes Deeps.  Hoping to find some antique glass knobs eventually.  And that about wraps up the little bathroom make over!

Bed, Breakfast & Snow

This long weekend, the hubbs and I headed to New Hampshire for some relaxation and to go skiing.  We stayed at a bed & breakfast almost in the middle of nowhere.  It was our first experience at a bed & breakfast and a bit of an awkward experience.  Breakfast was at 8:30 every morning, a little very early for us when we're on vacation.  Also, the bathtub/shower was in the middle of our room.  But all in all we had a good time.  I got to try out my new camera and finally saw some snow this winter.  Here are some of my favorite shots.

I also got the chance to go to a couple of antique stores (sans husbo), which were actually part of people's houses.  I bought some vintage glass bottles and two matching mini pictures of people in wagons.  No idea where I'm putting any of this stuff : )  But I will post some pictures when I find a home for them.  Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Dreaming in White

It's no longer a dream, our kitchen cabinets have been painted! Our kitchen is a new, bright space, no longer a sea of oak! Check it out....

These pictures are all taken with my new Canon Rebel (thanks ma and pa!).  I am still learning how to use it, well haven't started.  But the Auto feature isn't too shabby.  Anyways, back to the kitchen, I am so happy with how the color came out, BM linen white and I love the new hardware. Let's go back and see how it used to look. Don't pay attention to the temporary island.

You can check how it looked way back when here.  And now for the side by side comparison.

A few more white cabinet shots : )

Happy birthday to me! (Supposedly this is my hubby's gift to me, my birthday's in March so we'll see).  But a feels like brand new kitchen is a great gift to me!
