grey cabinets...

kitchen of photographer helen norman


i saw this photo today and i'm in love. i have really decided i want to paint my cabinets grey (a little more of a true grey and less green grey than these). after only a year the white on the base cabinets looks so dingy and needs repainting. i like the idea of keeping the upper cabinets white though (i'm loving this creamy white). someday, of course, we would love to redo the kitchen and take it back to more of a farm house look. but i think updating the cabinet paint and hardware will go a long way. i recently bought one of these plate shelves from ikea to hang up as well.





i have it all put together, i just need to get some help hanging it. i was cleaning up my office this morning and looking at my growing pile of house projects, realizing i need to get to work. i have various things i have been collecting, just waiting to be hung or finished sewing, etc. sometimes i get so overwhelmed that i just do nothing at all. seriously, last week i broke a lamp in office and glass was everywhere! i just looked at it in despair and shut the door. i may have never returned if my husband hadn't discovered it and bravely cleaned it up for me. his little act of kindness inspired me to get in there and start organizing for a new year!

I get the overwhelming house projects only too well . . . (and craft projects, garden projects, organizing projects, life projects, etc)

I love the look of that kitchen. Kind of a clean modern farm look. I am thinking of starting a wish and project journal to organize my thoughts. Now all I have to do is remember to buy one when I am out. :)
