This is THE PLAN


I am not a designer kitchen kinda gal. No being the funky old hippie chick, I go for more for an eclectic look along with some shabby chic or whatever strikes me as ME. In other-words, Cheap and Shabby. That's my style. I love re-doing things the way I want them and doing it without spending a lot of money. I just can't see it. I love the thrill of decorating as cheaply as I possibly can. I mean after it is all said and done, it's all superficial. 


About a month ago, I started staining my oak kitchen cabinets with a darker stain. I made some boo boos. So I decided to do what I wanted to do in the first place but was talked out of it by men who love wood - and who think it is a crime, to paint over them. 


I bought some Martha Stewart bead-board paint-able wall paper. I will paint over it using a green paint. Yes my cabinets will be funky green! I have dark wood hardwood floors and eventually I want wood counter tops. Right now I have white Formica countertops. I'll get to those later.

  1. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest
    writing a blog post or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot
    of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from
    each other. If you're interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Superb blog by the way!
