I'm back!

 My blog has definitely been suffering from serious neglect lately! I have one too many projects started at the same time which makes me feel as if i can barely keep my head above water half the time! Combine all of that with the daily chores of a housewife/mom....doesn't leave much room for upkeep on a blog. Anyways, i thought i would share a few sneak peaks of what i've been working on lately. I have totally revamped the decor and so far i'm happy with how its turning out. I'm still not too sure on the color of the kitchen walls, but for now i will have to make do as its cheaper that way!

Don't look too close...if you do, you will notice the little tabs. This is only temporary until i can get a real chalkboard for the frame

Transformed this beauty from gold and brassy to a beautiful sparkling white. She now hangs over our dining room table.

Notice the bead board in the background? Makes a world of difference in the room! We have yet to finish all the touch ups on it.

You can kinda get a feel for the direction i'm going in the kitchen by looking at these jars. Its leaning more towards a vintage/cottage look. Thats what seems to be working the best with wall color at least.

Let me know what you think! I'm always open for comments or suggestions!

I love the vintage/cottage look! That's kinda what I was going for too! Can't wait for more peeks!

Cute, cute, cute! (As expected!)

You are inspiring me girl! I've been looking at some canisters like yours.....same taste there!

Nice re-do on the light fixture!

For your chalkboard, if you have the glass that fits it, you can spray it with the chalkboard paint, but you prolly already know that. :)

I bought two giant clear glass cookie jars and masked off a square on the front, then painted 5-6 layers with the chalkboard paint.
I had caramel corn in one jar for fall, and used chalk markers to write "caramel corn". I like it.

I am happy that you posted pics (finally):) looking forward to seeing more!
