Shutters Are Started

 So if you remember my trim in the kitchen matched the old wooden cabinets and I was just going to paint them until I came home and Hubby put all new trim so he can start my shutters!!! YAHHH, so here is what it looks like now.....

 So the new trim is up and I started painting them to match the cabinets.

 He also put trim in the laundry room, and soon to be shutters there....
 And in the bathroom, here I only primed it, still need to paint, and then shutters.
 Back to the kitchen.....
In this picture you can see more of the true colour, I cant wait for the shutters to be done and show you all. I will keep you posted.

Kitchen is Finally Almost Done

 Okay here we go, if you remember the first coat was RED, now this color is Monroe Bisk, I applied 2 coats of RED then 2 coats of the Bisk.

 As you can see in this picture there are a few cupboards red so you could see the colour.
 I actually kept it clean, lol
 So here is were I put alittle candle wax, so the red came threw!
 Now here is this part done, I have my old handles back on but I am getting round wooden ones and painting them to match but until then I need something there, also I have to wait at least 2 weeks before I age them, yes yes another step!!
 I am also going to paint that corner cabinet RED inside, so it stands out.

 Well what do you guys think so far?? I love it, remember before it was all wood and kinda dark now I feel that it fits in with my old look that I am going for.

 Some displays that I have on my counter tops.
 If you remember there use to be a wine rack here and my hubby asked me last night what I was doing, I said but honey this looks so much better!! lol Sorry dear, find somewhere else to put your wine!
I found a before picture!!!! WOW I am so happy with the way it turned out, see what I mean about it being dark.
