I just couldn't stand the suspense.... (kitchen progress)

so I have to share a picture!  I'll be the first to admit I've always been terrible when it comes to suspense or surprises.  I mean I can keep something quiet if need be (case in point... my husband still does not know exactly what I did while in the USAF because I couldn't tell him) but I'll be the first to admit I do NOT mind knowing the end of a book or even a movie.  So not showing pictures of the kitchen just wasn't an option for me.

The base cabinets and drawers are drying before they get primed. And the cabinets on the right?  Well I took down the paper to see which look I prefer.  Any thoughts? And what about a black stove?  (It would be the same stove just painted black with the high heat spray paint we already have.)

And do you know what I found tucked far back in the corner of the "pantry" cabinets (uppers on right side)?
Pasta!  Cute organic "elk" pasta!!  (Yes in these here parts we call those "elks" MOOSE!)  Aren't they adorable?!  Two of my children thought they were "cool" but the third wasn't available for comment.  I can hardly wait to mail one packet off to friends of ours in Alaska... that way they can have moose pasta with their moose meat!

And these little lovelies... well I had a few pennies left from my birthday money and stumbled across them on etsy.  I just love mushrooms!  Especially cute little retro salt and pepper shakers!

Have a wonderful weekend!!


  1. 1) I like it better with the paper. GREAT contrast!

    2) The moose are AWESOME. Does IKEA still sell those? I'll have to look when we move back Stateside.

    3) Shakers = WAY too cute! *heart* those!

    1. Mel,
      1.Thanks! We ended up replacing the paper because I accidentally painted it... oops! Thankfully the roll is really big!

      2. I don't know if IKEA still has the moose pasta but I can check the next time we end up there... if it is before you get back Stateside.

      3. Yeah when I saw these sweet mushrooms on etsy I knew I HAD to have them! They were just too cute!!

      Have a great day!!

  2. That pasta is so cute and your cabinets are really looking nice!
