Sorry to leave you hanging about Tyrion and his bathtub accident. When I took him to the doctor the day after it happened he said if he had seen him right away he would have stitched it, but since it had been over 12 hours the risk of infection is too high and they don’t suture lacerations closed. It had a good scab on it, no sign of infection, so he said just leave it be! It will scar, but it’s under his chin most people will never notice. I was glad we didn’t have to put him through the traumatic event of stitching it closed. He would NOT have been okay with that.
On to my kitchen update! If you remember we painted the cabinets white shortly after Evelyn was born. I don’t know what got into us to undertake such a big project with a infant. We are crazy like that apparently.
And while the cabinets looked great, it made the rest of our kitchen look worse. All it takes is a party and I want to spruce up my house. We did the cabinets for Evelyn’s “Sip and See” which weren’t even finished in time! Oh well. This time around I’m hosting Bunco again and wanted my kitchen updated. Last Bunco I had Travis change out the kitchen light to a recessed one. I’m telling you, if I had more get togethers at my house I’d have it transformed!
Last week I decided to paint our oven overhead because it was a dingy yellow color and so dated looking. What started out as paining the overhead turned into painting the whole kitchen and also part of the living room. Go big or go home!
I am a neat freak so the chaos painting causes stresses me out! I can’t stand mess! I’m trying to work on letting go, but it’s just a tick of mine and bothers me no matter how much I tell myself to get over it.
I had mess everywhere!
And when we pulled out the fridge to paint behind it, you don’t even want to know the grossness we found. I mean, ick.
Overall I’m absolutely in love with how it turned out! In. Love.
Why did I wait five years to do this?
We still have to:
– Texture and paint the ceiling
– Tile the backsplash
– Get new countertops
But we are well on our way now!
It’s very white I know! But, I want to add in some lime green accents with a few reds as well. I am very pleased with how it turned out! No more dingy yellow for this girl!
Like I said, it bled into the living room. I wanted to open things up a bit and with the gray tile we did the fireplace, I thought bringing the gray paint into the room would pull everything together. Again, love it. I’m not in love with my décor or that you can see cords, but I’ll work on that in the future.
I still have to paint the cabinet on the left, and I’m probably going to pain the red wall on the right white, but that’s off in the future a bit.
And that’s what I’ve been up to in between children, running fitness challenge groups online, and keeping the home running smoothly!
All the paint and updates will help the house sell much better when we finally list! So glad to have these projects over!
Have you undertook any big home projects? Liked how they turned out? Would you have done anything differently?
Happy Tuesday, I’m off to enjoy my handiwork!
