i heart Jojeana's kitchen...

I love a good before and after...who doesn't, right?

Especially when it is a kitchen reno...those always amaze me! I love how a little creativity, paint and hard work can transform a dark, old space into sometime so light, bright and happy.

Last month, I was lucky enough to stumble on Jojeana's blog, Secret Garden Cottage and fell in LOVE with her kitchen!

Have you seen it?

If not, you are in for a treat! The white paint, the beadboard...the open cabinets. It is simply gorgeous!

Do you see that beautiful antique scale peeking out from around the corner? I have that same scale... and I loooove it...but I am dying to see that yellow table it is on up close. Is that old paint?? Um, Jo...could you show us your table, pretty please?

Shhh...don't tell her...but I am secretly hoping some day to drive to Cali and snag her gorgeous island!

I have some serious love happening for that beauty!

Here is where Jo started...welcome to the 70's ladies...

I cannot believe the transformation! And it was all done on a budget, too....thats my kind of girl!

Her choice of a farm sink under the window makes my little heart go pitter-patter...and I love, love, love the open cabinets and french doors.

So simple and clean.

And that light above the island??? One word.


I am now on the hunt for chairs like this...aren't they fantastic paired with her farm table?!

Ahhh...such a simple, bright and beautiful space. You girls never seem to amaze me with what you can accomplish!

But seriously, I NEED that island!!

Be sure to visit Jo's blog...her mudroom and living room transformations were just as wonderful as her kitchen!

I am off for a date with my paintbrush...today's project are a HUGE armoire dresser with a matching long dresser...and....I am so excited about this...I am actually finishing up a dresser for myself!

That one is going to have me dancing around the room...me because I never take time to work on something for my home! Who knows...maybe I will even show you a photo or two when  I get my bedroom project done!

Happy Tuesday, girls!
