Create a Kitchen Focal Point — with a beadboard cabinet backsplash for less than $10!!

20 Jul
Here’s a quick update on the kitchen makeover — 
the cabinets are painted!! 
And last night I added a little detail with some beadboard open shelving.
It’s so easy to do!!
All I did was take two cabinet doors off.

Then I bought a sheet of beadboard. 
I measured the openings of the cabinets, and the Home Depot guys cut it for me. 
So easy!!
A sheet of beadboard was $20 and I used less than a third of a sheet for this cabinet.
I bought a sample size of paint —  less than $3 for the paint and got myself an instant kitchen focal point!
 The color I chose was Martha Stewart Rainwater.
I painted the beadboard and then placed it behind the shelves.
The shelves hold the beadboard in place. So I didn’t need to even attach the beadboard with adhesive.
Such an easy project. 
And I love the POP of color it adds to my kitchen!!!

(here’s a little before shot):

I am so excited about this Kitchen Makeover. 
I can’t wait to share the whole thing with you!!!

PS — Another fun “Summer Social” project coming up in the morning from one of the funniest and awesome bloggers around 🙂

Bathroom Redo Sneak Peek & Some Winners {Silhouette}

1 Jul
My bathroom is done – yay! I am so excited. I looked around everywhere for a chandelier and was really sad that all of the ones I found were over $100. So I finally put an add on Freecycle. The next day I had two people that had chandeliers for me for FREE! The one I ended up putting in the bathroom is vintage. The woman who gave it to me said that it’s from the 1940’s. She is remodeling the house and has two larger ones she is going to give me too! 
I also had the opportunity to try out milk paint on this project, which I had never tried before. I can’t wait to show you more!
And now — here’s the winners of a couple of giveaway!
    The winner of the Sparkle & metal Little XO Necklace is #12:
