May Be Boring... but New!

Not much has been going on lately.  Just staying busy as I try to wrap up this semester.  I think I'm down to about 6 weeks left til graduation!  Woo-hoo :)

Other than school related stuff, I have been staining cabinets again.  This cabinet project is taking F.O.R.E.V.E.R, but we have to go slow cause we are so busy. 

We've also been spending money like crazy.  You would think this is a good thing, but it hasn't been too fun. 

See, my idea of "fun" spending money is on new springtime clothes, shoes, new phones, a good book, some lenses for my camera, etc.

But instead this is where our money has gone...IMG_0875 IMG_0878

                 tile for our kitchen counter

It's not yet installed, but I'm happy to know that it will soon replace the 1970's looking laminate that we currently have.

         door with internal blinds for our carport

It looks similar to this, but without the side panel.  Our current door is the original door from this house and looks like it belongs on a travel trailer or something.

                            range hood-vent thingy

I'm not really sure what these are called, but we needed a new one.  Our old one was yellowish-beige.  All of our appliances are white.  Yep, this was a necessity.


I warned that this would be a boring post, but it's important to me. I'm so ready to have a completed new kitchen!  And even though I'm not spending money on "fun" stuff, I'm happy with our new purchases.


Hopefully we will have a fun weekend so I can post some fun stuff.  Ha!  Thanks for bearing with me on this one!


Now I'm off to put up laundry and put another coat of stain on those cabinets.  Then for the rest of the night I'll look like this....

                                and LOVING it!!!

WOW!!! Your kitchen is going to look FABULOUS!!! Your "before" kitchen cabinets look like ours do and we have been anxious to start remodeling ours but haven't had the time with a newborn. Did you guys just sand the cabinets and stain?? Our laminate counter tops have that WOODGRAIN look (like the entire thing is a cutting board or something!). ha! Im so anxious to get started!! And you, my dear, have motivated me to get my hubby motivated! :) BTW, I don't get to spend money on "FUN" stuff anymore either. You get used to it after a while! ha! BUt now I get to buy fun stuff for Graham and that's way more fun than shopping for myself.
