A Little Peek Into Our California
I guess it was all the beautiful Pictures
of my dear friend Jennifer's new
transformed home that got me thinking.
How grateful I am for my California Cottage.
I started to remember all the changes we
had made to our own home over the years.
And most of it was done by us.
**** Our Living Room ****
We had to get all the crazy popcorn off the ceilings
And added the Recessed lighting
The Fireplace was that 70's fake rock
We transformed it added a faux marble look!
Now this is our transformed Kitchen
Before we tore it apart down to the
bare walls my husband wanted a picture
of what we wanted. So I looked through
magazines and books until I cam e upon
this Ad for Bosch yes an advertisement was
but the ad itself we laminated, I had
to otherwise by the time the project was
over it would have been ruined.
And it is always a great conversation piece (:
Pretty good match, and we did it all ourselves.
Even our cabinets are custom built by hubby!
*** Bar Area ***
*** Another Angle of Living Room ***
Hubby built that Cabinet on the wall with the T.V.
Mounted on the wall and there is a back panel
painted the wall color so it hides all cables and cords!
The French Slider we also added it was just a window
now we have great flow out to the side patio.
Anyway I promise I will show you more another Post.
*** Hydrangeas Beautiful Cottage Colors ***
And now onto the pretty flowers that
fill my sink today. I am cutting these beauties
before they completely die outside.
So I can dry them out, if you rinse them well
and remove all leaves and put them in a vase
with water until they dry.
and now they are turning color, a more subtle
flower arrangements around my Home.
It is very easy and lovely to change
a Pot of Spaghetti Sauce on the stove. I still have a little
more to do in my Studio and my Shop. Have a great Monday!
And Thanks for popping by (:
