The heart of the home.

Hello to all on this crisp Fall day! As unbelievable as it is, we've been in our new home for almost one year! October 26th of last year our offer was accepted. I thought I would put together a little journey of sorts through our home. Jake and I, (mostly Jake!!!) worked day and night to get all the remodeling finished before we moved in on January 6th, 2006. Here are some before and after pictures of our kitchen, the heart of the home. Here is the door you enter when you first come into our steps up into the kitchen: WELCOME!! These are some pictures of our kitchen the day we purchased our home. And here it is after many hours of some good ol' tender, lovin' care!We started our "good ol' tender lovin' care" session by ripping up the floors,
all the way down to the joists/foundation, (that was fun)!!
He leveled the floor, insulated and put new flooring down!
Here's my hubby working hard!!
We found an old well in the one corner that
had unfortunately been filled with rocks!!
I still think we should have dug for treasures,
but time didn't allow for that project!!

I lost sleep over the perfect shade of yellow and then
we added wainscoting underneath the chair rail.I am very pleased with my yellow. It's bright, yet warm.

I found this little kitchen at goodwill a few years ago and just recently
"remodeled" it by painting it the same color as our kitchen
and adding new/matching hardware! The kitchen cabinets were my "project" of sorts.
I spent countless hours sanding, priming, painting,
distressing, sealing and then putting them back together again!
SO rewarding! Hope you enjoyed your little tour!
Come back again!
I hope to continue our tour in the months ahead...
