Some Kitchen Redo Pics

So...for some reason when I am sick with a cold or something...I feel better if I am doing stuff. If I sit...I get a headache. So today I started to reorganize and move things around in my kitchen.

To see some BEFORE can click HERE. Just some little changes can make a huge difference. I must say...I HATE the area behind my stove. It's hard to clean and just a useless and annoying space. Finally...I have moved some things and am trying to decorate back there and make it look a little better!

And yes...there are dishes drying in my sink....I am just me....doing what I can. LOL Just a normal mom....who stays busy. My sink and counters don't always look perfect. I'm just keeping it real!

This is my 2nd post for today!!! if you haven't yet...make sure you check out my previous post! It's worth it...sweet sleeping kids are the best!!! :o) xoxo


  1. Looks great Katy!!
    I wish I had your energy and your sick at that!! LOL
    Take care
    PS, I'm going to do my second post of the day as well.


  2. I'm the same way, when I'm sick I always feel better when I'm doing stuff, hope your feeling better soon. I like your kitchen, that wasted space as you call it can be decorated up cute, a big spice rack maybe, or a bunch of tins arranged? I also think your cabinets would look great black, maybe a prim black, roughed up in spots? Just a thought, I'm almost done with our new place and still full of ideas, hope you didn't mind! Take care, get well!

  3. Your kitchen looks very cheerful and nice..know what you mean about the space behind the oven...its hard to know what to do with it, huh? It looks nice the way it is but do the things there get greasy? Maybe your fan works better than ours...

  4. Katy, read both post and loved all the pics of the kids its so sweet to see kids not fighting and enjoying their time together. Sure hope you are going to be feeling better soon. The kitchen looks great, sure wish mine stayed that orginized. We had a great camping trip this weekend go over and check out the pics. Hope you have a great week. Blessings, Karen

  5. Your kitchen looks so nice...Katy!


  6. I love your kitchen - I would love a red kitchen, but Todd freaks out any time I mention color. And you've given me a fabulous idea - the door fell off one side of the cupboard under my kitchen sink - I could take the other one off (until Todd gets round to fixing it sometime in the next century) and put a curtain up. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. What cute photos! I love the country theme! That is what most of our house is done in! Talk to you soon...

  8. I do the same thing, but in my living room. Sometimes a girl just needs a change

  9. What a cheery kitchen you have--it looks like the heart of the home. julie

  10. Hope all this work makes you feel better---LOL.... My Kitchen is red, too; but a cranberry red. So I love the red. My daughter is a freak for clean counters but I love to have my stuff out where I can see it. I know it's not correct to love things but I do!!!I collect all kinds of kitchen things and I love everyone of them.
    Yours is awesome. Love that island. I don't have room for one.......

  11. ohhh! it's hard not to envy your beautiful "red" kitchen. I LOVE red:)

  12. Morning,

    Your kitchen looks so nice! It's the little things that make us happy in life!

    Have a Great Day,

  13. Love your home Katy...everything looks so nice and prim! I also love the skirt under your sink, I did that once, not here but in my first marriage. I had a navy blue checked homespun and then a barn red one!
    Hope you are feeling better today!

  14. Hi Katy,

    I just wanted to stop by and say that I've followed your blog since it began. I am so impressed with how you have kept up with your great blog. So many give up so fast, and you kept going. BRAVO! You truly are a great blogger, and I admire that. I am always so busy with work, and with getting ready for my PSP Magazine feature that I cannot find time to enjoy my home decor as much as I use to. I wanted to let you know that your blog has inspired me to begin my kitchen project that I've put off for about a year now.

    Behind the stove looks nice, but my first thought was maybe utilize that area to show off some country utensils and crockery/pottery. You can never go wrong with having your wooden spoons, and more in that area... I had a corner stove like that many years ago, and I had a few pieces of pottery to hold my wood spoons and more. I had the center set as the items I actually would use while cooking and the rest was just for decoration. Might be an idea?

    Two thumbs up on your blog. I'll be back to visit again soon.


  15. I love your country kitchen. Mine is red and white too and and I love that combination. Hope you are feeling better soon.

  16. Change is good. Around the house, that is!!
    Looks great!!


I am always so grateful to read your comments! I thank you for the time you took to visit and share your thoughts with me. :o)
May you enter as a stranger and leave as a friend!
Warmly, Katy
