If you can't take the heat, remove your kitchen cabinets

What have I done???? Installed under cabinet lighting and removed all my kitchen cabinets....but they'll be back! After I refinish/repaint them! MUAHAHHAHA!

Some middle pics (it'll be awhile for the afters, hehe):

Stainless oven for Valentine's Day! Working on my husband for a matching hood! 


Also want matching stainless dishwasher that actually washes dishes well. 

Testing if I'll like a color on my bar area....this is where I installed under cabinet lighting first (don't worry, you won't see the wires when I'm done):

Now here's what I've done...

Is 8 months too soon to renew vows?

I wish I could relive my wedding about every month, without all the planning! So here's more wedding links, 8 months later, because I'm in love....and slightly obsessed with our wedding, well and weddings in general. And have been going to several weddings, as it is wedding season so I'm in the wedding-y mood!

Entryway Lighting After

Ok, let me preface this by saying that my husband begged me to stop "spending money"on the house. Well, all I've really bought is paint (6 cans max, I swear) and maybe a couple pieces of furniture (from places like thrift stores, garage sales, and Home Goods, mind you). Anyways, so when I continued to complain about all our light fixtures, I'm sure you know the response I got. So, with inspiration from Better After and  Dwelling By DeVore, I did this:
Before (as I've posted earlier)....

AND AFTER (and it only cost me $16 and change for the lamp shade and under $4 for the spray paint)...

And here's just some pics of my cute pup Hank, because he turned 8 months on Wednesday and I think he's just cute!!!

Blue White and Neutral Eat-In Kitchen

My kitchen has a similar layout to this one, except my eat-in area is much smaller and I'm not sure if I have room for an island. Also, I've already painting my walls a neutral color and have a chandelier that I'm redoing that is similar in shape and design as the one in the picture. And I plan on repainting my old 1979 cabinetry crisp and clean white. The only thing I don't like is the blue floral print on the chairs and window treatments. Thoughts??

Here's my breakfast area and kitchen back when we were buying our house (but now walls are painted SW's Nantucket Dune, we have a stainless steel range, and a butcher block dining table in place of the realtor in the breakfast area):
