New Kitchen Colors Peek

 Things are changing here at Dream Lane, and those words may win the understatement of the century:)

  As many of you know I wanted a new door with sidelights, thats how things started.. Once that was done, I was so thrilled with it, I started to think about bulking up the window molding too and with that half done I began to notice I needed a new porch floor..   Can ya see where this is going...?

  So today the carpenters come to add the molding to the windows and once thats all primed and painted , I'll paint the shutters their new color..

  Ya know how we decor diva's are, if the outside changes in style and color of course there must be changes inside too.   why? cause thats just how we are:)

     Ya'll will be proud of me though, cause I DID remember to take before pictures. Can ya believe it.. wow lol..

   Suffice it to say- beadboard in areas,,  new kitchen bar design,, backsplash tiles in greyish tones on the diagonal..  Oh Baby  I'm gonna have quite a mess but thats what it takes to get it where I want it.

  New drapes, pillows and decor will bring the  adjoining rooms:: dining-living and family room::  right along into the major decor party I am having here..

For now:: sorry this before pic is crappy:: I didnt take a new before shot cause I was too excited to get this one small wall done so I could see if Cottagy/ Nautical/Ecclectic was for me...  This glass front cabinet is whats actually to blame for the kitchen redo..  gotta blame something, right:):)

  As slow as I am there may be a hundred peeks of this and that before I can show the whole thing , inside and out.   The landscaper refuses to move plants and trees till the weather gets cooler so I cant get a full shot of the front till thats done- but Peeks, I can get for ya..

  I am so excited I'm about to POP and its a great feeling after many years of serious depression and anxiety. I hid that pretty well, didnt I..    I was able to convince everyone else I was SUNNY SONNY but that sure wasnt the truth..     Its wonderful to be healing day and day. I am Blessed and Very Grateful and I do appreciate ya'll sticking with me even when my postings have been sparce ..

  I'll try to get some good pics of the fabrics I choose in the next few days ..

  Ok I've babbled long enough...
Before - dark and dreary and not a happy look.
again- sorry for the crappy pic
and here is the Revised addition on that wall..   it makes me happy to walk towards the kitchen in the morning and inspires me to keep working till I get the entire home lighter and brighter and happier for myself and any one who visits here-- including Ya'll.

:: Thanks to Maryann my good friend in Maine for the sheep art print from their state fair in 2012::
ps-- the colors surrounding the photo gives you a clear idea of the tones I am using all over the house, inside and out:)
