I painted half the kitchen this weekend. I LOVE how it turned out!! It's VERY pale but a great contrast to the tile. Plus the kitchen already looks cheerier.
I also enlisted the boys to do a hutch swap. I had a larger hutch down in the basement in my scrapbooking area that I used as a bookshelf. The hutch we had in the kitchen was smaller. I had them drag the larger hutch upstairs and put the smaller one downstairs (I have yet to reload the smaller one with my scrapbooks and other books). I now have more storage for my tablecloths and "entertaining" dishes. Plus all my cookbooks fit on the second shelf and I was able to take the bookshelf out of the kitchen opening up more space. Yay!
I need to get the rest done this week. There's a lot going on next weekend: someone is having a birthday, I'm getting my hair done, and I am jumping into the freezing waters of Candlewood Lake in a "Penguin Plunge" to raise money for Special Olympics of Connecticut.
