Painting kitchen cabinets

I hate to paint but do to save money. My BF Shelia is an awesome painter and she came to help me.

She is so good to me and will help me with anything, she is a true blessing! I have been thinking about

painting my kitchen cabinets black for a long time. I have been afraid though, because my kitchen is small.

I was afraid that black would make them look smaller, well to my surprise they look bolder and the room

looks bigger. This is step one, I have bought me some vinyl plank flooring, My son and SIL are going

to put that down for me, can't wait, and I will share pictures of that also. Shelia and I have fun

no matter what we do even painting!!!! More pictures to come when the floor is completed!!

Wow, I sure have been neglecting blogging lately. I hope everyone is well and staying cool.
I have several  lillies and wanted to share some photo's of them. I love all of the different colors.
My favorite is the stargazer. And I love to smell them. Have a wonderful weekend.

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
