House Tour

We moved into our home in the Spring of 2010. Since then we've given the kitchen a face-lift, expanded the deck, painted the trim and decorating projects abound. The biggest project of all was expanding from a family of 4 to 5…that is what's really made this house our home. We are constantly tackling new projects and would love for you to follow along on our journey. Thanks for spending some time with us!

    1. Thanks for the kind words Dina. I love the rug. Bought it initially for the baby's room...was letting it air out in the family room. I feel in love with the look so it stayed.

  2. What great updates you have been doing on your home. The kitchen is very impressive. We are just now putting the finishing touches on our kitchen update. 8 years of red walls with white cabinets needed a change. We tiled the back splash Friday and I painted the walls gray. What a change already. I have to sew the new valances then it's ready to see on my blog. You can check out the difference of the gray paint vs the red now on my Winter Buffet post on my blog.

    1. Hi Carol-

      The island is painted BM Eagle Rock. It is a nice taupe-grey. If you do decide to paint your island, I'd love to see the results.

    1. Hi!
      Thanks so much for stopping over. The light is from Pottery Barn but I believe overstock.com now makes a knock off for half the price.

  29. I love your kitchen. What kind of paint/finish did you use on your cabinets? I read your comment on another site that they are oak. How did you get such a smooth finish -so that you dont see the grain through the paint?

    1. Hi Mary-

      Our painter used Killz primer (2 coats-1st rolled on & 2nd sprayed) & then a paint called Cabinet Coat (2 coats sprayed on). Hubby & I also spent an entire weekend preparing the cabinet doors (washing, deglazing, sanding, & spackling old hardware holes). I think all those pieces together made the appearance of the grain very minimal.
