Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Upcoming Premier

Last time you will see the eating area this calm!!
Some how my decorating roll petered out, but not my desire to transform our new dwelling  It just had to  step aside while adjusting  to the new school year and all that extra time I thought I had on my hands...well I haven't found it yet.

So I am creating accountability for myself by giving a upcoming premier of my kitchen. This should jump kick my roll again...hopefully, and make sure my kitchen is "some what" finished by this weekend.

 Blogging before pictures will hold my feet to the heat to show the "some what " finished product...or else disappear in procrastination shame. Now the kitchen will not be totally finished by this weekend, because I plan to enjoy slowlyyyyyyyyyyyyyy finding the right accents, but the bones will be in place.  The upper cabinets will be adored with past kitchen accents, keeping memories alive, while along side the old will be new pieces to go with my retro-theme.  The hunt is part of the thrill of creating a room.

Come on in for the before shots... 

Here is that year 2000 green...notice the back splash is the same color as the walls.  Too much green...didn't stage my pictures...sorry!
More green walls....I have got to do something with my pantry door!!!  Knife block will be changing. Small island...but a good place to put something fun.

Inspirations!
Remember I said I was going to be bold in one room!!!  I want cheerful for my kitchen
Another theme piece...will be carrying out this theme in different places in the kitchen.

Now are you starting to guess which way I am going????

The hotel blinds have been removed....again cheap 2" white faux woods in their place...letting the sun in.
I have one  window properly dressed in her kitchen glory.
The rug under my painted table....well a floor cloth will be taking its place..so long jewel tones..  Love those drop cloths.
Stencil and diamonds...will  found themselves at home again in my kitchen.
All on a very minimum budget...another challenge that just makes it all fun.


See you Soon!!!!

I can't wait. I love looking at all that you have been doing. Yeah, it is funny when you think you will have all of this time.
I have no idea how I taught all six and got anything done because with one I am just as busy.
I can wait for the big reveal!

Marla and Steve @ Always Nesting said...

LOVE that fabric and you are going to have so much fun!! Can't wait to see the end result. My decorating goes in spurts also. I run out of ideas or money or both :)

Sonja said...

LeeAnn@Encouragement Is Contagious said...

Can't wait to see these colors all together Janette. It's going to look beautiful. Hey, when you talked about a floor cloth for under your table, were you talking about one that you paint yourself? I have always wanted to try painting one of those but have not.

You make me tired just reading your energy! I love the sneak peaks! Can't wait to see it all come together...

Love the new header picture too. Your family is just beautiful! And the family resemblance is amazing ;)

Blessings, Debbie

Vee said...

Oh you are doing good and it looks pretty exciting to see where you're headed. You have nothing on me in the Procrastinators Hall of Shame department. I have been promising, on my blog no less, to paint my kitchen for at least two years. I just bought the paint a week ago and haven't even made the swipe that you have to show the difference. Hmmm, you may inspire me yet.

Lisa said...

Janette,
I love your inspiration fabrics! Your kitchen is going to be a happy place! LOL! can't wait to see what you do.:)

Kim@Seasons of My Heart said...

Looking forward to seeing the transformation.

I LOVE the fabric's you've picked out.

Sandy said...

I think those fabrics will be
great and make your kitchen very
lively and pretty. You have the
same dining room chairs that I do.
Wish my table was white but hubby
says no to that idea.

Debbie said...

I can not wait. Seriously... get to work! I want to see what you do with the back splash, most of all.

And the painted floor cloth. Can't wait to see that too.

I have that hound's tooth in my kitchen...

And WHERE do you get your cheap faux 2 inch blinds? Please tell...

Debbie is making an appointment with this post and keeping Janette accountable. If it's not up, I'm flying in in person to see the progress.

(Don't worry. I'm bluffing. I'm afraid to fly. Plus, anyone too cheap to buy faux blinds isn't going to cough it up for a plane ticket.)

Oh, I'm getting excited to see this, Janette!!! I think it is going to be so full of cheerfulness!! Love the fabric. I found some a little similar! Lovin' it! blessings ~ Tanna

A multi-dimensional life said...

You've chosen such happy colors...great for a kitchen! Looking forward to seeing the finished product! :)

Cecilia Marie Pulliam said...

It will be fun to see the change! You have such great ideas, Janette! Very artistic. It isn't just a home, it is an art exhibit.

Crown of Beauty said...

Dear friend, Janette,
I am back on your blog after having been away for some time. Your home projects promise to be exciting and worth waiting for.

My daughter and I unexpectedly found ourselves looking for a new place to stay (long story) - but I didn't write the specifics of this sad development on my blog. I only shared in general terms, and more important, what God was speaking to my heart through it.

So, we are in a new season too... I do love your cheerful heart. Always, always so cheerful and full of joy... undaunted by hard times... always happy to find a good bargain that still enables you to decorate your new home on a shoestring budget - with a touch of class and elegance! That is what I love about you.

See you around soon!

Love
Lidia

Keep singing your high school anthem and your projects will fly by!

Karen said...

I actually really like that green on your walls! I'm a huge fan of green. I'm also a fan of blue, so it will be fun to see what you do...

Also, I ADORE that white kitchen table! ADORE it! Did you find it as is or make it that way? If you painted and distressed it, can you share how you did it?

Sally said...

You've got a plan, good luck in the transformation, I look forward to the "after" pictures. Big UT game this weekend, we'll be in front of the tv suppporting the team!

Maryann said...

Can't wait to see what you have done. Maybe you will motivate me. We pulled wallpaper down in our kitchen two weeks ago, bought the paint and have been at a stand still ever since.

Trisha said...

Can't wait to see everything, Janette! You have a way of making everything look beautiful.

Joluise said...

Can't wait to see the changes. It sounds exciting,

Petra said...

I can't wait to see the finished product. Hurry up, haha! You inspire me! Blessings!
