Out with the old!

There comes a time in every relationship gone wrong when you simply must part ways.
I am finally going to take the dive.

 Yep, the kitchen is getting a makeover.
I really hate to show you the before pictures but since a few friends asked I will but with great hesitation. I just want to prepare you properly......
the kitchen is icky except for one part.
not this part, nope.
not this one either.
Definitely not the original floor, bleh! How was this fashionable in 1968?
This part is kinda cutesy. I do like my "Hens gather here" sign but it probably belongs with Rita or Amber's chickens.

This is Courtney's beautiful kitchen, you can see more inspiration at her blog 
Now I wish my kitchen would turn out like Courtney's but Im  in a bit of a hurry so fresh paint, a new floor with just a few new accessories will have to do.

This is my inspiration piece, a trivet I picked up a while ago. I'll be picking up paint in the morning and getting to work. Oh yeah, the reason Im in such a hurry besides the fact I just need to part ways with this out dated kitchen is because I will be having a house guest in a few weeks.

Sweet Karen Valentine from My Desert Cottage will be coming out to speak at Launch Your Creativity and will be staying with me! Im so lucky!

You will be so amazed at what a new coat of paint will do to your kitchen! Can't wait to see the "after" pics, I know it will be refreshed, renewed and beautiful.xo
