Monday at My Home

Good morning my Luvs!
I have been so excited to show you all my latest project, it has been so hard to wait until Monday to finally show you. This proved a little more tricky becuase we had to replace the back and the drawer bottoms (due to water damage) of the dresser and paint everything!
Didn't it turn it out so cute?!! I was nervous the pink would be too crazy but I think it turned out just crazy enough. I love how bright the kitchen looks now, it's amazing how a little paint totally transformed the space. I have to give to give credit where credit is due cause I totally snagged this dresser/kitchen island idea from The Nate Show. Thanks Nate!

Awe, your kitchen is FANTASTIC! Pink is my fave color, this kitchen is a dream! Great job on the dresser!

Looks awesome! Love the bold pink Island.

This is perfect. My kitchen has pink accents, too. I decided forever ago that since I spend so much time in the kitchen, I wanted it to be on the feminine side. My husband wasn't really a fan of the idea but then he caught on and gave me a pink Kitchenaid for Valentine's Day a couple of years ago. Ha ha.

That island is really great. I love it! Your Monday posts are my favorite!

Brandi said...

Looks so pretty Leah! the pink is just right! Now you need a fabulous roman shade over that window!

Katie said...

Great Before and After! Definitely a testimony to the power of paint! If I ever decide to suggest painting out cabinets, I think I'll use these pictures to try and persuade the hubs. :) Also I love the dresser! It adds the perfect amount of character... and is so functional- definitely a must in the kitchen. Blessings to you!

Jessica said...

This is exactly what I want to do for my kitchen- the dresser island! Every day I'm looking through the online classifieds for a dresser! Yours look great! Love the pink :)
