my stools-revamped!

I love how paint can make such a difference. In decor. On walls. It gives things a new start. I have been wanting to paint our stools at our island for a while now. I got some time this past weekend to do it up.

I painted the kitchen yellow a month ago, added new lights this past spring, and painted the scripture on the wall.  When I painted the walls, we took out the stools thinking I would get to it sooner....but life happens. So this is how my kitchen looked without my newly painted stools. 

Lets go down memory lane, and remember what my kitchen looked like before we moved in.....

Above is a picture of the kitchen this past winter. 
No paint. 
No new lights.
No new curtains. 
Note:  the espresso stools. (too dark and no punch of color)

My hus sanded them down to this for the prep. 

The A F T E R
I Love It! 
tiffany blue

 The color is Sherwin Williams- Drizzle. I painted it with a brush/ two coats. I finished with a matte finish sealer. I am so happy with it.

My goal was to tie in the blue that is in my wool rugs that are in my kitchen. I think it pairs well with it.

I also picked some pink roses from our rose bush out front and put it in my crate-n-barrel vase. The tray is C&B as well. The candle is target. The planter is Anthro and the elephants are Pier One.  Happy Table makes happy Christy

Are you working up any projects!? 

Check back tomorrow for Lock Love Wednesday!

High Five for FRIDAY-- Kitchen REVEAL!

Every Friday, I link up with Jeanette and Lauren for my highlights from the week! I have had quite the week! We hosted a lot, painted a lot, worked at Tala a lot and soaked up family time! I am really excited to share with you my  K I T C H E N  R E V E A L below..........new paint holler!

Last Friday, We had our youth leaders over for a celebration! Lasanga/salad and desserts. It was great to connect. We are so THANKFUL for their dedication to our youth group......THE GATE! We played an intense game of scruples and laughed!

My in laws came for a 24 hour visit to see their granddaughters. It was beautiful weather while they were here. Lots of sunscreen and pushing the girls on the swings!

My neighbor gave the kiddos rides. 

Grandma Loni and Zion hit up Old Navy together. Zi chose this dress (which I adore) and the headband for Zakiyah! 

My new mousepad! I scored it for $2 at Target....best part, it is a notebook.

I painted my door.......obsessed. 

It is so happy.

Planted flowers......loving my chevron pots!

I brought out one of our chalkboards and rested it by the door!


Now on to the KITCH. I am so excited to see this room coming together. It is the room I spend the most time in. 

Here is a pix of it when we moved in......

Below are two pix of it when we moved our things in......

I painted the wall with Chalkboard paint last fall. It has been so fun using it for our family and the girls art.

Below is the newly painted walls..........

I LOVE IT! It is Sherwin-Williams, "Friendly Yellow". I love how it brightens up the space. It goes so well with the West Elm lights. I changed out the curtains with linen West Elm white ones. Fresh for summer. 


Love my cafe curtains with Jody fabric. I love the vintage feel.

I stretched the fabric and put it on a canvas frame that my hus made.

I hung clip boards for kid art!

I love RED. I love Gerbs. I love flowers.

I have lots more surprises to reveal next week. Stay tuned. 
Do have any fun projects going? A favorite paint color? Have a great weekend! Happy Memorial Weekend!!!!!

Kitchen Update- Shine your LIGHT!

Winner Winner. Chicken Dinner. We have new lights! I am love!!!! Thank you West Elm for always providing me with glorious beauty! Seriously, I love love love our lights. Our old ones are for sale if you are interested in purchasing them.....email me! I have been wanting to get something more fresh, modern and light. With our kitchen being more classic and mission style, I wanted to add some elements to play off it. Below- is a before picture to remind y'all. 

After- with my new buddies!

We have two pendants hanging over our island and one over our kitchen sink!

In love with Edison light bulbs. I got them on Amazon.

Aren't they beautiful?

Over our kitchen table, we hung a big drum shade! It is so pretty at night when it glows. I love how it has southwestern flare mixed with ikat. Praise.

at night time...they glow so beautifully.....

Do have a favorite trend or style right now with lights? There are so many looks right now that I am loving!
