Kitchen Remodel...

After 2 long weeks of stripping wallpaper, my walls were finally ready for a whole new look. I have been collecting accessories for a month, anticipating the final
"look" that I wanted. I'm a major lover of books, writing, old letters, maps, etc.. My house is practically a library, so I decided the kitchen needed to be included as well. So, Rebecca came over, and worked her magic. I don't know what she was mixing up in my kitchen; but my walls are perfect. There aren't too many times that I have a vision in my head and the end results look just like what I had imagined! In person, the walls look like leather and old parchment paper - LOVE IT! Thanks for your ENTIRE DAY of back breaking work Rebecca! The finished project still amazes me! I keep walking in the kitchen and staring!

Here are the before, during, and after photos. I still have to do window treatments, my island is being built, and I need a few more accessories for above my cabinets. Hopefully new countertops and flooring are in th not-so-distant future! More photos to come!
