Recently my BFF and Rainmaker, Professional Stager Connie King came to Kentucky for a weekend vist. It turned into a kitchen makeover.
I was quite tired of all the grape and ivy greenery about the cabinets. Connie took everything down and used items in the house to re-design it.
Later, after she left, I was even inspired to change the paint color from Ecru to a warmer Earl Grey color. The paint I wanted was a suede matt finish. Sherwin Williams Cashmere paint was perfect for the finish.
Now, I absolutely love my kitchen!
Thanks Connie for getting me started!
You know girls: BFF's that like to hang out together end up shopping, styling, and redesigning a room or even an entire home. The ideas get to flowing, maybe some great music, a glass of wine, and BAM! we have a redo! Stuff Happens.
This happened on an October Saturday in good ole Kentucky. I might add, if I didn't live in God's country - - East Tennessee, I would be honored to call Kentucky home. Lizette Fitzpatrick, Broker, Artist, and AR Ambassador, had invited me up for a day at Keeneland. We never made it to Keeneland this trip due to rain. But just take a look at what we did instead.
The kitchen was awesome to begin with, but Lizette said "I have been thinking of changing" and that began the fun. While she was elsewhere, I bagged up the greenery over the cabinets and rearranged some of her great accessories. We later shopped for a few additional goodies, and wow, stunning redesign.
After I had returned home to Tennessee, Lizette called and told me she had tweaked a few things and found a couple of items to complete the look. This vignette in the corner was one of her finishing touches that looks incredible.
Next time you have a rainy Saturday afternoon and two designing women around, just IMAGINE and DREAM and you can create a one of a kind sanctuary of your own. Fabulous fun!
One word of warning: I have been known to begin removing wallpaper while friends were out of the room...
