Kitchen Makeover

Its Monday! Who's ready to tackle the week OR get tackled one? I wanted to show you the progress we have made on our home. 

My husband purchased this home from his grandma a few years back. It was a rental up until the day we moved in.

We needed to make some repairs, which made us gut the entire house.

The only thing that didn't end up coming out of the house was our kitchen cabinets. We did remove them only to have them reinstalled when we realized we had to cut them to attempt to get them out the door.

We decided to paint them and just use them as they were.

Here you see the original cabinets, flooring and counter tops.

We painted the cabinets, my husband built the counter tops and then tiled them. We added subway tiled back splash!

We are completely happy with the way this basic kitchen remodel has turned out.

We  spent about $600 in all our supplies. Labor of course was free, because my husband and I did it all ourselves.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday Friends! I'm linking up today to share my favorites of the week. It's been unseasonably cold in FLORIDA. I believe it's been cold all over the nation, I can't believe how cold it's been here!

Come on over and join us. 

This sweet boy is spoiled rotten. When it's cold outside, he thinks his place is right up on this couch beside us!

These $4 pajama bottoms! They are so warm and cozy! When Florida reaching record breaking temps, they are perfect for lounging around the house.

Date Night! Date Night with my hubby is so much fun! No matter what we are doing, we have such a good time together. Sushi is our favorite!

Have a great day friends!

Kitchen Remodel - Counter tops 

Hi friends,

I'm so excited to share the process of remodeling our kitchen. We gutted the entire house and started from scratch.

Flooring, cabinets, back splash and island. We were planning on purchasing new cabinets and counter tops. Once we realized we would have to cut the bottom cabinets to get them out of our home, we decided to paint them and continue using them. 

I’ll show you a couple of the before photos of our kitchen. 

Once we reinstalled the bottom cabinets, my Husband started building the counter tops. He used plywood and then added backer board to give them stability. 
Once he measured and completed the tops, we decided to tile them. 

Then we sealed with non sanded grout.

We are so proud of the process. It was one of our favorite DIY projects to date.
Of course we painted the cabinets white and made the kitchen crisp and clean!

Have a great day friends!

Hot Cocoa Bar

Merry Christmas Eve friends!

I wanted to share a hot cocoa bar I threw together on our back porch. Living in Florida its not too cold to entertain outside during the holiday season.

It only takes a couple of essentials to make it happen. You can add anything you’d like. 

You can go all out or keep it simple like I did.

It’s always great to have a drink station set up for your guests! Makes things much more simple when they know exactly where to go! 

You can follow along with me on Instagram too! 

Merry Christmas!

Jesus is the reason for the Season!
