Celebrate It! Blog Party #17

Welcome to Celebrate It!

I hope you had a wonderful week, and I am excited to see 
 how you have been celebrating your wonderful life!

So please link up below! We want to share with you!

I am always asking you to share with me how you are celebrating,
 so I thought I might share with you this week.
Almost a year ago, we moved into a beautiful house that was built in
1997.  I love this house and it's classic design, but it is outdated
in some areas. All spring and summer we worked on the yard  and the
 lawn and the outside of the house. We were waiting for fall to start on the
 inside. So this week we started stripping wallpaper, and painting the kitchen.
This kitchen is a big project and it will probably take us over the winter. 
We won't be busy with it everyday of course. The appliances are 
outdated, the floor needs to be replaced, the cabinets can maybe, be saved, 
but you get the idea. Lots of work and time and fun. I love doing it! 

 So here is a before picture. This window looks out over the 
back deck, and there is a door to the right.
You can't really tell from this pic, but the wallpaper
is on the top and bottom of the molding.
This is how it is looking right now.
The color really gives it a deep, rich tone,
and completely changes the room, and we are not
even done painting yet! It's amazing!

So that is what I am celebrating.
Now it's your turn!

Share what you are writing about, photographing, baking,
cooking, planning, DIYing, remodeling, building or thinking!

  2. Hello cute lady! I love stopping by your fabulous party! Thanks for hosting. Please stop by our party that starts on Monday at 7 pm. We would really appreciate it. Happy Saturday! Lou Lou Girls

  3. Oh my goodness. I feel your pain! Our house was built in 1978 and I have removed more wallpaper than I ever want to remember. It is a labor of love and so worth it when you step back when it's done with a big "Ah, I did that!"

  4. Thanks for inviting me to join your great party!
