Kitchen reveal

It's been awhile since my last post but I promise I have been busy! We got to spend a fabulous week at the farm and got much accomplished. I can proudly say after 5 busy brutal days, the kitchen is finally finished! A great shout out to my friend Cindy for helping with me two hard painting days. I wouldn't have gotten it done without you! Plus, she made us the cutest pillow. Aww!

And thanks to my wonderful husband for helping me get the cabinet doors and drawers painted. whew. It was hard work, my hands were cramping but it is done. It looks wonderful! Everything is slowly coming together. I'll let you enjoy it through the pictures.

doors off and ready to paint

23 doors and 8 drawers to paint
Here it is with primer and the first coat of paint:

Chalkboard Wall!!
Here's some cute things I painted to put on the shelves of the open cabinets:

wood blocks and barn birdhouse

Wood plaque with wood chicken
The door going to the garage had a really bad grain pattern. I don't know if you can see it in this picture but I called it the "saggy boob" door. ugh:

The door is now painted white. The Order sign is one I got from the cafe closing. Adds a nice punch of color:

Here's what the finished cabinets look like. I left the doors off the upper cabinets next to the sink and painted the backs green:

In case you didn't notice, the curtain changed. I found this funky chicken print and couldn't resist. Thought it tied in well with the blackboard wall. The "B FARM" letters are metal and I found them at Michael's, strung them together with twine and hung them above the sink.

The sign on the top shelf says "Simplify"

Nice and painted!!
Everything looks so different. And clean. I even painted the insides to seal the wood and cover over the grease stains. It also allows me to see if there are any critters (aka scorpions) in the lower cabinets. Yikes, we have too many. Had to get the bug man to come spray. They were just down right creepy. 
I love how it looks now. It's feeling very homey. We even have a regular-sized refrigerator! Yes! We can have more than a couple of items in there. 

I hope you've enjoyed seeing my lovely kitchen. Thanks for visiting!


  1. Awesome. Can't wait to see it in person...

  2. Oh it looks so great! I really love it. Seems like you originally showed me different fabric for the kitchen curtain. Am I correct? or just dreaming? Either way I love the curtains too. The whole project really came together nicely. Now it's time to enjoy!

    1. Yes Susan, the curtain was a yellow and red chicken print originally but then I found the other and couldn't resist so I made a new one to replace the other new one. ha. I also found a black scroll pattern that I made the dining room curtain out of so they all tie together.

  3. I love what you've done - quite a LOT of work!! The white brightens the kitchen and makes it very welcoming. Enjoy your new kitchen!

    1. Thank you! It has really transformed the space. Not sure my hands will ever be the same again though. haha! No, I'm really pleased painting worked to spiffy up the kitchen. A nice, inexpensive solution for now.

  4. Your kitchen reveal is great! I love the chalk wall and the light fixtures are so fun. I know how much work had to go into this was worth it...Your kitchen is now so bright and cheery!! Thank you for sharing and visiting my blog earlier...Best Wishes, Bobbie

    1. Thank you! I love it now when I walk feels so fresh and clean!

Farm Laundry Room Wall

This weekend I got the laundry room painted - walls, trim, and shelves. Yay!! It looks fresh and bright.

And because I got all the painting done, I was able to get the accent wall done ( thanks to my husband for his help!). When I began planning, I wanted to do something to the walls that would give it some interest. I thought of beadboard or a rough plaster texture but I wanted a more rustic look. Rough wood planks (as in old fence pickets) or what I really, really wanted was rusty tin. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough old fence pickets or somewhere to get rusty tin for either option.

I had just about decided to go with beadboard when I just happened to mention the rusty tin idea to one of my sisters. She said she knew where she could get some, so how much did I need? Yes! I quickly measured, told her, and in a few weeks had some tin panels. Perfect...only they weren't rusty. She told me the rusty ones were too far gone so she decided to bring me these. Ok, I can rust them…

Thanksgiving sign

I can't stand it...I was going to post this next week but I'm dying to show it off! I know, I know, now I will have to come up with a new post for next week. That's ok. I'm having fun with this and so enjoy it. You make it so much more so! So thanks for reading and leaving comments. I am thankful for you! Anyway, here's my farm mantel post:

My mantel needed help. Everything I placed there got lost against the brick. Painting it isn't an option - that was voted down very emphatically! However, I painted the trim around the fireplace to match the surrounding walls and ah, that looks better - blends instead of sticking out like a sore thumb.

 Also, it doesn't quite line up with the fireplace. Or the fireplace isn't centered on the wall. Who designed this anyway?! I can't tell you how many quirky things we've found in this house. I think it's  called character! ha.

To help it look better, I decided it needed a wooden sign. I picked a favorite sc…

Cozy Christmas Farmhouse at The B Farm

Hello my friends! Today I'm sharing The B Farm all cozied up for Christmas as part of the Cozy At Christmas Blog Tour. It's five days of Christmas goodness - I hope you will pop over and visit the other ladies. I'll share the links at the bottom of my post.

This year, I'm crazy about plaid! What? You too? To me, it just says "cozy" and "homey".

To begin, I dressed the table with red plaid placemats and red napkins from Audrey of Timeless Treasures. The plaid stockings are actually silverware holders my friend Susan gave me a couple of years ago. So cute!
The red pillows on the bench were wrapped with red and white plaid ribbon. They remind me of presents! The green plates with pinecone motif were a Good Will find many years ago.

Then in the kitchen window, I hung some crocheted lace also from Audrey. It's not plaid but it says farmhouse cozy to me!

Isn't it pretty?

The cute red and white checked apron (another wonderful item from Audrey) han…
