Our kitchen redo has been a major on going project and we have finally finished everything except painting the walls so I decided to do some posting.  As you can see we started with oak cabinets and formica counter tops and backsplash.  We painted the cabinets black and then distressed them slightly and added 3 inch bead board to a few areas.  We used travertine for the backsplash and then put under cabinet lighting in.  We also tore out the fluorescent ceiling lights and put in can lights. We replaced all of our appliances with stainless steel.  It has totally changed the look of the kitchen and I love it.  It was worth all the work, even though there were times when I was painting the cabinets, I was questioning my sanity.

Happy 30th Sarah!!

I've decided a year off is enough so I decided today would be a good day to get back into blogging since it is Sarah's 30th birthday so wishing her a very happy 30th.  It's been wonderful spending the last week with her and Kurtis.  We were also lucky to have Jed here for a few days too.  The only thing  that would have made it better is if Ashlee could have joined us.
