kitchen done and curtains hung

My friend Whitney is a rock star. She unpacked my entire kitchen while my superstar moving crew unloaded the rest of my stuff. Obviously the cabinet doors need to be painted and put back but I LOVE my newly painted and very organized kitchen! (more pictures soon, I promise!)

I LOVE my office. We call it the milkshake room, because the color reminds me of milkshake chocolate! My mom is amazing and made these beautiful curtains for my office! She is actually making curtains for my ENTIRE house and my house has a lot of windows! We are slowly but surely getting the material picked out and the curtains put up. I need to get the living room and dining room painted so that those SUPER cute curtains can be put up! Anyway the next picture is of the entire window in my office. The following two are close ups of the fabric! I LOVE color and I LOVE fun fabric. I love my mom for being so good on her sewing machine and being willing to make all these beautiful curtains for my new house!

A close up of the top valance!
LOVE this fabric SO much!
(notice the milkshake chocolate on the wall!)

The bottom part of the curtain! SO fun!

The kitchen....
remember the shutters, the curtains, the sunflowers... oh dear.

My aunt and mom took the wallpaper off in the kitchen!
They are rock stars!

My sister loved painting with red... okay not so much! :)

Whit wanting to leave her mark! :)


The kitchen is not quite finished...
the "finished" pictures will come later!

Remember the wallpaper?
This is what the entry way looked like when I bought the house...

The entry way minus the wallpaper.

The first coat of guacamole! LOVE IT!
(Whitney painted the entry way!)

What the entry way looks like now! (J.K. is "inspecting" the closet)

This is what the bathroom looked like when I bought the house...

This is what we found underneath the heart covered wallpaper... seriously swans?!?

Because the swan wallpaper wouldn't come off, we decided that new sheetrock was necessary.

YAY, its fresh and clean!

The almost finished product!
