Hello, sweet friends!!  I hope you all had a VERY Happy Easter!  Most of my morning was spent driving-but trust me-I didn’t mind it a bit!  Once I arrived at my destination (Mel and Andy’s), I couldn’t get enough kisses and squeezes from my adorable grandson, Maxwell!
I’m so excited to be spending the week taking care of that special bundle of joy- as his mommy makes the transition back to work-but don’t fret-I’m still making time for some very special posts!!
Today’s post is something very near, and dear to my heart.  My kitchen!

Maybe it’s because I grew up in a farmhouse-or, maybe it’s just because I love the warm-relaxed-and simplistic elements-but turning our kitchen into a farmhouse kitchen has been a dream of mine ever since I stepped into that ugly 1970’s style room, seven years ago!!
Now…after all those years-I’m finally getting the chance to do some MAJOR updates-and the first step in doing so was creating an inspiration board.
 Since we had a limited budget to work with-we started our kitchen’s makeover by painting the kitchen cabinets last summer.  Although it was a messy and time consuming job-it was well worth it!  I LOVE how they turned out!!
But we more work to do.  The drop down ceiling was removed last week-giving us an additional 2 inches in ceiling height!!  And now it’s time to start pulling it all together.
1.  Glass front cabinets
2. Baskets for storage
3. Functional faucet
4. Blinds
5. Lighting
6.Open shelves
7. Island
8. Counter-top
9. Rustic Wood

10.  Vintage accents
11. White subway tile black splash with grey grout
12.  Paint color
You might notice that there is one KEY farmhouse element missing from my board.
 No farmhouse sink!  I know-I shed a tear every time I think of it.  But when I do-hubby always reminds me that this is not our FOREVER kitchen, and I’ll have my dream sink someday!!!
Have an AMAZING Monday-I’m off to change a diaper and sneak in a few smooches!!!
Blessings and hugs,
CD
