inspire me with lemons and green apples

Yep, all it took was fresh lemons and crisp green apples to send me on a mission to make change in my little kitchen.  It can either be a good thing or a bad thing to have the sight to see potential in everything. When Brad and I found this home several years ago, we looked in the area we wanted because we were looking for a little more land. Well, we have lots of land and that little house with all the remodel potential keeps becoming low priority as life takes us through one new chapter after another…geez!

Any who, instead of waiting for the remodel to like what I have, I’m taking baby steps to not waste my money and make things nicer until we pull the trigger and blow things up.  I adore apple green plus it works with our huge citrus art paintings throughout our home. I had to get rid of the olive green “wish you could see my face right now.”  I took the hideous unpainted pocket door that I don’t actually even use and painted it with chalkboard paint. I kind of like it now. I love my cabinets, clean and white, so I just touched them up. I pulled out the s3wing machine and staple gun to get busy making white valances for over the sink.  I’m going to add a second layer of pretty fabric to the bottom, but I just had to get them up to see the almost finished look.  I have no patience and a constant need for instant gratification. I’m still working on the finishing details, a cute rug runner for in front of the stove and I’m making a vintage pot rack.  I will of course show you how to make it.

I’m kind of excited and I feel a little better in the space. What do you think?  Will it get me by a little longer?  Let me know. Xoxo and smoochesxoxo, Julie
