The Old & The New... Kitchen!

-Last Saturday we moved to our beautiful historic home in Detroit
- Many of you gave us some serious help... and it was so much fun!

- Some others of you are asking for pictures
- Here's a few that tell a snippet of the story of this past week



Kitchen... Before. This house was empty for a year or so.





The horrid wallpaper boarder has been painted over &
rewall papered SEVERAL times..
THAT was a pain.
(Wallpaper is probably made in Hades!)



(If I EVER even consider hanging wallpaper, please read
the following statement to me:

"Dear Netta, make a tight fist. Hold out your arm.
Now punch yourself repeatedly in the head with your
full strength until you remember how much you totally
 hate the entire wallpaper process!")






Primed & ready to paint


The doors were sanded, primed & painted in the grass
and then the garage.



And NOW...
A corner of the beautiful finished product!
(More to come... when I finish unpacking everything!)
