Painted is Better

Just wanted to show you the new paint.
I was inspired by Kim at Savvy Southern Style
and painted the back of the cabinet in the kitchen.
Honestly, I didn't do anything - hubby did. 
Our cabinets are custom-built oak and I really
didn't want to paint the actual back wall of the cabinet.
I have a tendency to change my mind and who knows
what I will want down the road - I knew it wouldn't be
an easy fix, if I wanted to have the "wood look" again.
So, we took a trip to Lowe's on a search
for something thin to paint
and to fit behind the shelves. 
And, we found it. 
After measuring,
cutting and painting -
it's in and I'm lovin' the color,
especially with
my new dishes.
(This cabinet used to have solid doors
until sweetie removed the oak and
installed the glass doors. 
Made such a difference!)

I know y'all told me and my DIL said
but I just couldn't get a good
picture without using the FLASH. 
So, y'all are just gonna have to forgive me
because I wanted you to see the
pretty kiwi green.

See how my new dishes
with the backdrop of green!

The framed pic in the back
of this cabinet is actually
a box top from a box
of lemon cookies my daughter
brought me from
Yea, my daughter went to Italy and I stayed
home and got a box of cookies.
But, I love the box!!!!
Cookies weren't bad either!!!

And, this is where I BLOG,
so I can enjoy my
"new" cabinet while I visit with y'all.

This shows a good pic
of the tile backsplash
hubby put up after
we replaced our
laminate countertops
with granite a couple
of years ago.
He's so handy to have around!

More sunny lemons and daffodils -
reminds me of spring. 
The weather sure doesn't say
spring today. 
We have snow and 11 degree temp
 in Kentucky today.

Been cleaning our closets and found
these tea towels my Mom embroidered several
years ago. 
I've been saving them.
Now, I am enjoying them in my kitchen.
Aren't they the cutest?
This little rooster is watering his flowers.

And Mr.  & Mrs. are
on their way to church. 
Look at her little purse.

This little glass vase was a yard sale
find some months ago.
I love the unusual shape and the
little spreaders (had these) peeking out
match all my "new" stuff.

Thank you all so much for stopping by.
I am so enjoying blogging and all of your
sweet comments.

I'm a long way from being an expert blogger and
often times can't figure out how to respond to your comments - just know I appreciate each one.

But, I visit your blog frequently
and enjoy seeing what you are up to.

Have a great week-end!
