Check it out!

Hello All! :)

My lovely mother is now a member of the blogger world! She hasn't posted much yet, but she will be posting all the cute jewelry she makes, so go check her out please! View her blog here, at Cheryl's Crafty Jewelry :) on the lookout for my next post...I'm attempting (for the FIRST TIME EVER) to make a 3 tier topsy turvy cake with fondant for my sister's sweet sixteen birthday, and of course I will have to blog about my experience!

Modge Podge Kitchen Drawers :)

Well, I finally updated the drawers in my kitchen!

I moved into a new house back in December. The walls were red and a yellowish color (reminded me of McDonald's) and the cabinets were an off-white (from cigarette smoke i believe). Anywho...i painted the kitchen walls chocolate brown (yum!) and we repainted the cabinets white (bright white). My accent color for the brown is a bright green. Oh, also, the cabinets and drawers had these not so cute gold handles on i replaced those as well!

We painted the cabinets back in January, but still had not painted the doors or the drawers....therefore our cabinets have been completely open. After coming across a new blog, Modge Podge Rocks, I decided I wanted to spruce up my cabinet drawers after painting them and before finally placing them in my new kitchen!

I went to my local craft store...Hobby Lobby to be exact :) ....and bought some scrapbook paper in my accent color and got to modge-podging!

Here are some before and after pictures of my drawers!

This is what the drawers looked like before they received the new paint job

The inside...eww :/

Michael helped me paint! much better!

Here is the finished product!

We still have a long way to go with our kitchen remodeling, but at least the cabinets are all most done! We are hoping to get a new fridge, new stove and redo the floor tile, the counters and the backsplash. It will be such an improvement when we finish! I can't wait :D
