REMODELING A FIXER UPPER

After two hard years , I hope I am coming back to somewhat of a life. I bought a get away place and have been trying to redo it, so I am going to start sharing photos of this BIG undertaking!
 This is the kitchen. It had floral wallpaper that was stuck tight, so I opted to paint over it. Saved a lot of work- and remember this is just a get away place-I do not want fancy.
 As you can see painting the bottom paneling really improved things. Still need floor covering, but am waiting on cabinet installation. The funky little table and chairs are pieces picked up at different times I decided to paint each chair a different color and the legs of the table white. Cabinets all torn out waiting for new. I painted the top cabinets this blue-still deciding if I like. The bottom cabinets will be white. The curtain has all the different colors from the chairs and cabinets.I have "camped" on weekends when working on this. I mean all me and my little dog need are a microwave and a fridge-though the stove does work too. LOL. More to come.... I am joining INSPIRE ME TUESDAY at https//www.astrollthrulife.net

FROM DISGUSTING TO CUTE.

When I spotted this sad looking coffee table at a garage sale for 10 bucks, I just could not pass it up. Never mind the fact that it takes 10 men to lift it-which I don't happen to have hanging around. LOL. Seriously it is heavy!
I LOVE this paint from Wally World of all places! It is so much better than buying a huge can of chalk paint that I will never use all of. I like the choice of colors and it is cheap! A bottle this size did a china cabinet and half of this coffee table!I also used the acrylic craft paint from there too.
I love the finished product! I am joining Marty for Inspiration Tuesday at http://www.astrollthrulife.net

I AM BACK- I HOPE

I have missed everyone. I hope some of you will start visiting me again. I have had such a hard time since my husband passed away. Maybe, if I finally get back to blogging it will help. I am trying to catch up with everyone's blogs to see what you are all up to.

THE WONDERS OF PAINT

Spring is in the air-well almost. But I am sure like me a lot of things in your garden look tired and sad. Nothing like paint to brighten things up. Don't you love this blue?
Or what about this red orange color?
Or maybe you want something more restfull? A cool calming green might be more your style. All of these photos were taken at a local garden center-great place for good ideas.
