Home Is Where My Story Begins

Home and Family Friday

Before we get to the linky party, I have a few announcements.

1. My friend Diane, over at the Perfectly Imperfect Life, is hosting her VERY FIRST LINKY PARTY. So head over there and link up something you loved about your summer.

2. I’d like to share a little project I’ll be starting tomorrow:

Buh-bye orange oak cabinets, doors, and trim.


Hello stain stripper and Mr. English Chestnut.


My neighbor turned her ugly orange cabinets into these beauties. I can’t wait to get started! I’m hoping to finish the kitchen before the Holidays. Then I’ll move on to the rest of the house.


Let’s party!

    Wow, Partner! You really have picked a big project this time. So sorry I'm going to be out of town the next two weekends. 🙂

    Thanks much for giving my linky party a shout out. I'm not ready to give up summer yet!

    Thanks for hosting. I can't wait to see your cabinets. I've been wanting to paint mine but hubby is not hearing of it. Don't worry I'll wear him down.

    What an undertaking adventure you are going on!!! I hate stripper! I have done better sanding. Your neighbor's cabinets look awesome and I am sure your cabinets will turn out great, too! Good luck!
