Kitchen Re-Do

How about a blog where I’m not just talking on and on and on?

When we moved into our house, the kitchen had WALLPAPER. Ugly, ugly wallpaper. Well for the first year, we just lived with it. Then one day, we decided to DO something about it! We rented a wallpaper steamer (i think it’s called something like that) from Home Depot & in two days I had removed all the wallpaper. Surprisingly, while I have little patience for mostly anything, I had a lot of patience for removing wallpaper.

No befores of the ugly wallpaper, just after pics:IMG_3519IMG_3517

Then came the hard decision, what color??? I love picking out colors, the hard part is narrowing it down to one. However, this color just seemed to jump out at me:

It’s a blue-gray, the pics don’t do it justice, but when do they ever? I can never seem to get the true color on camera.

Then for my favorite part: DECOR! And yes, I made everything myself:

I seriously LOVE my Silhouette. I could not do most of my projects without it.
