Guest Room Makeover at the Beach

Yes, I am addicted to Pinterest and it has affected my life!  For several months I have been pinning ideas for The Fisherman's guest room.  He inherited the room, with painted grass around the baseboards and a garden of flowers on the walls. 

Let's start with the before pictures. The guest room is really small and challenging with two windows and a closet door ...

and lots of flowers and bees!

The room arrangement was less than desirable.

The update began with paint -  Sherwin-Williams Accessible Beige. Moving the bed opened up the room.  During a trip to Ikea I found bedding and curtains for an unbelievably low price.

So this is the result of three days of work.  Still to come are lamps, pictures and a mirror for the girls to use for makeup and hair!

Kitchen Update

After many years of dreaming of a new kitchen, it has finally happened.  The ideas for my kitchen have been floating around for some time and after much research and shopping, my new dream kitchen is a reality.  There are so many people I need to thank and the first is my grandson, Reeves.  He spent many hours going to Atlanta and visiting every kitchen, appliance, and lighting store within 50 miles.

And then there are the folks at Southern Cabinet Works in Newnan.  Shanon was the designer and she took my ideas, wishes and must-haves and created a beautiful, working kitchen.  Jeff, Robert, and Matt built and installed the cabinets and did so with a lot of patience and expertise.  But before they could do their magic, Rich had to remove all the old cabinets, Tony had to install the lighting with all my dimmers, and Chris of Uptown Kitchens ran the duct work for ventilation.  And let's not forget Mike and Matt, the plumbers as well as Eddie the painter.  All did a fabulous job and the result is my beautiful kitchen!
