Chicken Scratch~ Settling In

We have been in our new home for about 3 weeks now. We had to wait a week to even unpack the truck due to storms, so technically we have been unpacking for the last two weeks. I have also been doing a lot of deep cleaning and painting to freshen up the tired little house. 
Our new home is from 1900. There is still some original charm as well as additions which took place between the 70's and 80's. The kitchen is dated and the paint is long 
over due to be freshened up and brightened. 

The first thing I had to change was the kitchen. I painted all the cabinets and walls...Took off a couple cabinets to open things up, hence the small space....Boy what a difference paint makes. It brightened up the tiny kitchen instantly. We had moved our own fridge in to replace the old dated beige fridge...and will have to replace the stove/oven with a new one. The old stove is burned up inside and pretty much worthless to cook or bake in. A new stove will brighten up the kitchen even more, so can't wait to get it in.

I freshened up the kitchen wall and added my farmhouse touches to it...It screams happy! We also spent a long two days painting the darker wood bead board and dingy yellow walls...Spruced them up with bright white and retro teal. It doesn't even look like the same space..It looks huge and so bright! Hoping to get better pictures soon and perhaps give y'all a tour of the whole house when we're done with it. For now I just snapped quick pictures with my phone. Sorry!!!

We are slowly getting the living room cozy and livable as well. Hanging pictures and finishing touches still left. We are loving it...The family room is huge!!! Plenty of space for gatherings!

Come on back ya hear!!! Will share more as we go...
