MH Updated Kitchen

Well I am home and have been working like crazy!

While I was in Florida I cracked my friend Candy up because I read the obituaries.  I have always done this...but I was so pooped when I went there  I think I was just checking to make sure I wasn't listed!

We still have a LOT to do as far as finishing touches.  But today I am going to show the finish kitchen.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how it turned out!

I hope you all can remember that this had paneled greenbrown walls, cupboards, fake butcher block countertop and OLD everything else!
We have redone every inch of this kitchen.

I will put a plant in the antique holder, but my husband has to anchor it.  I tried, but nope...didn't work.

I used all my STUFF as much as I could without looking like a hoarder!

See the blue butter dish.  I think it was my mother's!  OLD but not a good old.  HOWEVER, my hubby  LOVES this dish rather than a glass one, soooo, well, he does live here too!

Here are my gorgeous new appliances.  I am crazy for them!

This is where a small microwave will go...haven't got one can't imagine how many times I think Oh, I will just zap.....nope, I won't!

 I am taking you around the kitchen...not big, but it works fantastic!

 We love our eating counter.. and our granite!

Ok, so I am a bit of a hoarder!  I had to have my vintage kitchen items.......

 See in the hall...proof that not everything is done!

I am looking like crazy to find more of these rolling pin add one.  I would love it to fill the whole wall!

I hope you enjoyed the tour.....

All the boxes are unpacked.  I never thought I could do it, but I did!  I THINK I remember  where I put everything!!

I will show you more next time....Bye!

  32. Ceekay, your kitchen is gorgeous!! I love the granite counter tops. I see you have a Kurig. Did you know they make a tray to hold your pods, that sits right under your coffee brewer. It saves counter space. If your interested you can get them at Bed Bath and Beyond. My daughter in law and son gave me mine for Christmas. You do not look like a hoarder. I love all vintage items.

    Ceekay, you are so talented. Love your display shelf for all your treasures.
    LOVE your granite! Everything is gorgeous!
