Throughout the past several weeks I have become quite an avid fan of the website, Pinterest. This website consists of a variety of great ideas for recipes, exercise, organization, and crafts. To say the word crafty is not my middle name would be an extreme understatement.
I was once invited to a craft party. All attendees were to bring their current craft they were doing and we would spend the evening working on our projects. I was half tempted to go and buy a Disney princess coloring book and spend the evening getting the red just right in Ariel's hair. Do not misunderstand me, I have extreme respect for those who "craft." However, if it takes more than 2 hours to make, you can count me out. I am pleased to say I have married into a family that has done their fair share of projects.
Trey's parents are visiting us in Haiti right now. Over these past few days there have been quite a few house renovations. We have painted our living room and kitchen, an extreme improvement to our stark white concrete walls. I look forward to sharing pictures as projects around the house reach completion.
Today I wanted to share with you on of our most recent changes. The area behind the stove gets quite a bit of filth on the wall. In an effort to cover this space My father-in-law developed a wonderful plan...
With a few pieces of plywood and a lot of nails we have our renovated kitchen! I absolutely love the new look to the stove area. Inspired by the updated and oh so "homey" feel to our kitchen I baked some chocolate chip cookies to celebrate. I'm excited to see what other changes to our home may result from our time with Trey's folks, Pinterest has nothing on us!
