If you follow me on Instagram you know I have some major news.
We might be moving to Huntsville, Alabama.
Me too, but in a good way.
Most of the time.
It is not 100% and I was not even going to write about it if it was not for sure.
But then I thought you might like to talk it out with me...
I do that you know.
Long over do, but lets take a look around.
I loved all the island makeovers I had been seeing online.
I had wanted to so something for a long time to my kitchen.
We priced wood, and it was costly.
Beadboard paneling was a good option, but I was not sold.
I wanted shiplap!
And I could have done that and aged the planks...
But this is so much easier!
I did it myself in about an hour.
I just love how it turned out.
Just love it.
I kept the front natural and it could be removed if someone does not like it.
But come on.... it looks so much better than before.
I love anything aged, white, chippy, burlap...
It was too perfect.
What will I do with all my stuff.
I will have to have a pantry or something.
The antiques? They will come with me...
The table? Maybe not, it is so big and bulky.
I do know I want to do a cottage style again.
I love my light counters... I would hate to have them super dark.
It is fun to think about a new place to decorate.
Mountain views, lovely homes, nice people.
We are going to downsize quite a bit.
But I am really just leaving it up to God's plan.
If it works out, wonderful.
If it does not there is a reason we need to stay.
We have a beautiful place here at the lake.
We will not ever have anything like this again.
But part of me thinks it might be time to hand it over
to a new family, with new memories to make here.
I am okay either way....
And you would not believer how much junk I have sold,
pitched and donated.
Maybe this was my hubbies way of making me clean out the closets...?
I will let you know if we find out anything...
