Niki's Beautiful New Kitchen...


I left the house again today. It's amazing how social I've been lately. This has to be a record. I went to see my friend Niki's lovely Kitchen remodel and then we had lunch at the church with lots of friends.
As usual, my pictures don't show quite how lovely this kitchen really is. Niki if you read this, let us know what color that green paint is.
I understand that Niki's dad was both the general contractor and the entire labor force and that he did all this so fast while keeping her kitchen in good order for daily use. We won't see anyone top that again soon.
Ofcourse, I love painted wood and I love white, which always makes a clean slate. And, this kitchen is perfectly situated with large southern exposures, so it was just really beautiful in the middle of the day. I think the white cabinets put all that pretty light to better use.

My dad was saying to me that if you make just your own little corner of the world a more beautiful place, it lifts everyone. This is definitely one of Niki's talents, she makes everything more lovely and everyone she knows happier.

That is a great kitchen! I should try one of those hanging pot holders (sorry, what are they called?) then I would need to buy some new pretty pots and pans though... but I like that idea and it looks great in her kitchen I think.

Niki just called it a pot rack I think. Don't you love that she has red pots on the pot rack, it's makes a great focal point, plus, who would love to cook with a red pot, that makes it a bit more fun.

I haven't been able to stop thinking about the white AND green cabinets! I love those together!
