The Great Remodel - Kitchen Before and After Pics

So the big kitchen reveal was on Monday if you missed it. In this post, I wanted to share some before and after pics- HGTV style. I wish I had taken more pics when we first moved in before the floors and new appliances went in, but it is still a major transformation.

The Great Remodel - The Kitchen Reveal

After patiently waiting, the kitchen reveal is here! We are so happy with the results, and I am so glad I don't have to make any more decisions for a while.

My Annie Sloan Chalk Painting Kit

Here is my attempt at my first video blog. 

Observations: 
1. I say "like" and "um" a lot. 
2. I obsessively touch my face. 
3. I am not looking directly at the camera. 
4. I have the sniffles.

I will work on all these issues for my next video, but I think you will really enjoy the content if you are thinking about dabbling in furniture painting. Don't get overwhelmed with all the items. I bought mine slowly over time. Start small, see if you like painting and build from there.

1950's End Table Makeover

The last two weeks have been crazy with traveling and the kitchen remodel. The kitchen remodel is almost complete. We just need the cabinet hardware installed and we are done! The big reveal is coming soon, so keep checking back.

I finally found some time to paint this week. This end table was a Goodwill purchase a few months back, and I thought it would be a quick project to bang out. It is a quintessential 1950's end table. Both my mother and mother-in-law mentioned to me they each had one in their houses growing up.

Vacation Time

Pretty Distressed will be taking a brief hiatus to escape the craziness that is my kitchen while we wait for our countertops to get rendered. It is the perfect time for me and the kiddos to escape to the South to visit the grandparents. I will see you in a week!

Until then, I will leave you with one small tease of the kitchen remodel progress...
