Home Renovations



We finally finished our Kitchen! Nick did the nicest thing for me ever! When I was in Utah with the kids he decided to paint the kitchen for me and kept it a surprise until I walked through the door when I got back! I had the paint picked out for a while, and I also had the pear oil painting sitting there waiting to be hung up for the longest time! We had a hard time getting this done since Nick is gone so much and we can't get a job like this done with the kids around. I should have taken a before picture, but basically the paint was just a light cream color and there was nothing on the wall. Nick also replaced the light fixture that was above our kitchen table and put this chandelier in instead. We also bought that kitchen table this summer after we moved here. My friend Angel sells vinyl lettering and designs so she provided the vinyl lettering in chocolate brown which matches perfectly. I kind of stole the idea/location for the lettering from my friend Janel. My friend Emily was at Target and discovered the wooden pear sitting on the table for me. I went and got the last one they had (thanks Emily!) I used flowers from Michael's to put the orange flower arrangement together, and that about covers it. We still have more painting/ decorating to do and I hope we can get those done. Anyways much thanks to my awesome husband for this unexpected surprise!
