the big reveal....

Ok....if I wait until this and this come in, I may not get to show you the kitchen/great room until July! I couldn't wait that long. So, bearing in mind that we are not "finished" with the decor I will present my new kitchen to you. Yep, it's making it's debut right here on Mother's Day....never before seen photos just for you. (as always, you can click on any photo for a full size version)


Here we are just rounding the corner into my kitchen. We do have a bit of a rooster theme going on here. We could play a game called "spot the roosters". ;o)

Here's another angle. The granite countertop is Blue Pearl. The backsplash is slate.

Now, let's look at a few of my favorite things....

I love this corner of my kitchen. It's nice how the under the cabinet light seems to spotlight my brand new kitchenaid. I haven't had a chance to use it, yet....but since kid #4 turns 9 this coming week, I am sure we will break it in. The rose is a Mother's Day rose from a friend.

I have shown my spice cabinet before, but it was empty. Here it is filled up. I need to organize it a bit, but for now it is working fine. I love opening the door just to peek!

Here are our new plates. They look so nice in this plate rack cabinet. Just like I envisioned.

This shelf was blue and then it was painted black and then it was sanded to show some of the blue again. It works perfectly opposite our special corner.

Here is a shot from the other side of the counter looking into the kitchen.

Now, I am standing by the laundry room door giving you the view of the new entrance way into our kitchen. The old entrance used to be behind the fridge.

Here is one last shot. This is my view standing by the sink looking towards our back door. Yeah, I still needs to be painted. We're working on it.

Hope you enjoyed a glimpse of what we have been working on the past few months. It has been an adventure and I have enjoyed sharing it. Happy Mother's Day to all my friends!!

Beautiful girl! I'm just jealous I wasn't invited to the Pampered Chef party. I need a new stone since dh broke mine. :(
