Thanks Everyone!

I really appreciate the comments on my kitchen. After much debate I THINK I have decided to continue and do it the black. The final decision was after seeing pics of Kindra's kitchen she did in black last year. Her cabinets are almost exactly what I had seen at a home show and what I had in mind for my own. I wont start until it cools down a bit because the thought of working at sanding and painting in this way!!
Yesterday my sister and I took a little road trip and visited some farm markets and craft shops. It was nice to get away for a day. We dont get to spend alot of time together as she has two girls she is always busy with plus we both work different schedules. I have my mother in law(Lord help me) that now lives at my house and someone has to be around to administer her meds and keep her cared for. It makes for a sometimes very stressful house! I needed the day to relax. I am adding a few pics of one of the shops. Hope everyone has a great week ahead. Im off to work then home to bake with the wonderful blueberries I got yesterday in my travels! Happy Blogging!

  8. Sue,

    The craft shop is Sandra's Country Treasures in Berwick. That was just a small sampling of whats in there and all made by local crafters.

  9. Hi Sis!

    I think the black will look great in the kitchen. What does DH say? I would still love to re-do my kitchen here but it may take a while now that school is started again.

    I may be switching jobs.... I may have an opportunity to help out at the school in the culinary class. He is hoping for someone to help mentor and teach them to bake! haha...You would of thought he would of brushed up on his baking skills over the summer.

    Still haven't talked to Michael but will let you know when I do.

    Take care and don't work to hard,
