I've been working hard on our kitchen.

First, I stained everything with a grey wash; it looks SO awesome.

Then I replaced all of the drawer pulls with vintage-look pulls. I've always wanted those and now I have them :)

Third I added bun feet to make the cabinets look more custom - it definintely helped.

Now I am in the middle of adding beadboard to all of the outside panels and to wrap the whole kitchen island. It is a multiple step process: cutting the boards to fit, then adhering with Gorilla wood clue and finishing nails, and finally staining the boards.

Final steps include a new kitchen counter (most likely in granite), most likely a new sink (looking at farmhouse/apron sink models), lighting over the island and maybe a tile backsplash (not sure yet).

I just bought these vintage look barstools off of

$67 for BOTH and FREE shipping. Can't wait til they arrive later this week.

I have a thing for tents. Always have. Even though I'm not much of a camper...Its more the mystique of the tent than actually being in the wilderness. But I digress:

That is a pretty sweet tent.

*I also have this tent related fantasy that is along the lines of Harry Potter, where they go inside a tent and it is WAY more spacious than they expected (like the size of a large house) and is furnished with everything they could possibly need. How AWESOME would that be?!

Pretty Little Things...

A few things that I am finding beautiful today :

So charming, isn't it?

This dress breaks my heart, it is so beautiful...I want to twirl around in it...

The lovely vineyards down the street from where I live.

I want this hair. Every. Single. DAY.

So I think that I would like to combine each of these pictures into one big beautiful experience! Right?! That would be overload on texture, color and beauty...but it would still make me very happy.
