My Two Cents ~ Soap Operas

What's your take on Soap Operas?
I thought I swore them off years ago however I keep finding myself getting sucked into them!
It's not like I will change my plans to catch them, if I have other things going on I simply don't watch...

The Young & the Restless & The Bold and the Beautiful are my favorites.
I used to watch them many years ago when I was a teenager/early 20's & after I retired I found myself watching them again.
It's amazing how many of the same characters are still on the same shows.

So that's my 2 cents on soaps!

Beach House Kitchen {so far...}

So here is the realtor photo of our Beach House Kitchen.
Ah, no... that blue won't work!
Not to mention we suspected since the kitchen hadn't been touched after Superstorm Sandy, there would be mold under the cabinets.
We pulled one cabinet out & our suspicions were correct!
Our original plan was to paint the cabinets & get a new counter top...

Time to start demo...

Fortunately we have a contractor friend {Jim} who stepped in to take over the kitchen project for us!
We didn't have 4-5 weeks to wait to order custom cabinets so we purchased ready made.
Jim worked out all of the dimensions & we're really pleased with the outcome.

Jim also made the counter tops for us from the material that we chose.

Hardware was added & the top trim installed...

I chose beadboard for the backsplash.

That's where we are for now... more to come!

Beach House Headboards

Beach House Headboard {E's Room}
This headboard was painted in a Custom Light Tan with Custom Green highlights.
The dresser for E's room will be painted to coordinate with these colors.

Beach House Headboard {R's Room}
R's Headboard was refreshed in SW Naval.
This is such a true Navy & his headboard will coordinate with his dresser!
Beach House Headboard {L's Room}

Love at first sight when I found this headboard & I knew it would work well in L's room!
It was painted in Sherwin Williams Softened Green, lightly distressed & umber glazed.
It was sealed in wax...
