I thought that you may like to see our kitchen make over...(Some of my blogging friends are in
the process of doing the same and I hope to see theirs too)!
the red trim was more of a
hot pink red then real red!!
There was also a very
... I was wishing for something to lift the microwave
so it would be easier to open,
and low and behold we found this neat
(it scrubbed up pretty and a little varnish
brought it to life)!!
Then there was the sink....
HubbyBear did an amazing job!!!
New plumbing after a long drying time!
But the big country sink that we brought along
was so wide that it would warrant a whole new
So the compromise was much more
A wonderful solid copper sink!!

When I first met HubbyBear
(I shall now confess)!!
the "real" reason I "really" married him....
... (hee hee hee) ...
..was.... because he had a wood cook stove!!!
Well we were never able to hook it up (yet)
But then "the most wonderful road side garbage find ever"
came our way too!!
Here was a beautiful working vintage gas stove
just sitting out on the side of the road!!
(I even knocked at the door and the man said
"Yes honey take it it's yours") !!!
But alas this too proved impossible to fit
without reconstructing new cupboards so it is
used to store things and as a baking work spot.
And the top of the cook stove is on top to
remind me that I do indeed have a cook stove
if I may need it someday!
It was used for the cooking/canning spot while the
regular stove was moved out and disconnected.
(for I had to slip canning in all while doing the make over)
(Thankfully the Mousiekins were there to help)!!
This door needed help!
Remember the ceiling?
This was the biggest task!
.. to have our wonderful Grandson come and help!!
HubbyBear went to school to
be an electrician pretty convenient
I must say!!
Be careful when your wife says
"Honey we need a new floor while the furniture is moved"!
Don't run to the store for more ceiling screws!
Heated rice bags are a must for
HubbyBear left the painting to me..
and that's ok because he was agreeable
about the floor!
I wish that I had a movie
of me applying the boarder all by
but I bet Lucy was laughing
down at me from heaven!!
( I can't believe it came out straight
after spending so much time in my hair and toes)
The doggies helped too!
(but they laid down on the job a lot)
of improper "2 cents" timing!!
(never only point out faults)!!
I decided that I could tackle the floor..
"couldn't be that much different then quilting!
And besides I do already have the tools"!
Hope you enjoyed!!
No animals were hurt in this project....
