Me - An Interior Designer??

If you walked into my home, you would probably never guess that I was an Interior Designer.  When we bought our home many, many, many years ago, we redid our kitchen cabinets.  They are all solid wood and we put the trim on them, restained them a dark wood tone and added new hardware.
And they haven't been touched since!!
Would you believe that I have Harvest Gold Formica and a Harvest Gold sink?
So, my Spring project is to repaint my kitchen cabinets, get new countertops, new faucet and new floor.
I'm saying this because I have said this for the last twenty years and now, my friends just say "yea, sure".  So, if I commit to you all out there, maybe it'll really get done.
The shocker isn't going to be what I'm going to do but rather what colors I'm using!!! Did I raise your curiosity?
This is a project for later on this Spring but stay tuned.  Now, I'm committed!
Love the different colors of paint...not too much red...not too much white
(I'm not using the green, rather the gold.)

Till next time, Judy


  1. I think your kitchen is going to look wonderful..I love the colors you have in mind. I love red. I will be looking forward to seeing what you design.
    Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

  2. I'm afraid that's what everyone says when I say my master bath is going to be blue! haha! Maybe I should commit to doing it this year! I love your colors! It will be such a difference!

  3. Ooo I love remodels! can't wait to see. The colors look so fresh! We want to do our backyard..And we have been looking at different ideas.. Good luck and remember...One thing leads to another,and before you know it you off doing something else... Cant wait to see.....

  4. I think that kitchen will look great. I like different colors on top and bottom.xo,Susie

  5. I like the choices you've made. I look forward to seeing your 'new' kitchen.


  6. Wow! That's really brave,committing online. Like saying, "Folks, I'm going to lose 30 pounds, hold me accountable." I know it will be beautiful. Will you show it as it goes along or wait for a BIG reveal?

  7. Love the color choices! What an update this will be....and if you say it on the internet...then you must do it! :)
    hugs, Linda

  8. You know the story of the shoemakers kids....shoeless little things.

    I love the colors, way to go!

    Can't wait to see the finished work.


  9. :) I can't wait to see what you do! I like what you have in mind for now!!! I love that look. I am looking forward to the remodel!!

  10. Hi Judy,
    Oh...I can't wait to see what you do in your kitchen. I love the red cabinets...and, yours will be gorgeous.

    Thank you for your kind comments on my blog. It has been a challenging month with baby's overdue birth. It's good to be home again even if we have the flu. Just so glad baby and his mommy and daddy didn't get it.

    Thank you for your prayers, Judy!
    Carolynn xoxo

  11. I love your plan Judy, and really look forward to its completion! I think it's going to look awesome! I think you have your interior design mode back!

  12. Oooh I can't wait to see it! I love to see a good kitchen redo. Can't do that much more with mine but now I can live vicariously through your redo! I know it will be fab :)
    xo, Andrea

  13. I'm sure you will come up with something fabulous for your been an interior designer and all! Can't wait to see the end plan, all done up!

  14. That is something to look forward to! I love how you added the trim to the cabinets, they will look amazing painted! Thanks for stoping by my blog!

  15. I put things out there in the blog world to challenge myself. I figure if I say I am going to do it then I need to follow through. I am a red person so I think the red cabinets you showed are great. We painted ours white about 4 years ago. They are a little more work to keep clean, but I like them better.

    I will check back to hold you to your goal.

  16. I'm cheering you on Judy! That will be amazing all together. The color choices will go so well with the things you love and make.

  17. Love the colors you've chosen! It is going to be so cheery! Good luck!

  18. I'm sure your kitchen will be gorgeous if the inspiration photo is the direction you're going. As for committing in public on your blog....mmm, it hasn't worked out all that well for me. A bedroom that I started in Jan. 2011 and predicted I would be done by summer (of 2011) is still an ongoing fiasco!!! But then again, maybe it's just me. Best wishes on a speedy transformation. :)


  19. I can't wait to see what you're going to do to your cabinets!

  20. I love it already, Judy! Now, work your magic!


  21. I can't wait to see what you come up with! Love the colors you have chosen....

  22. Judy I love the color combo. I think red in a kitchen is wonderful. Good luck with your project.

  23. Hi Judy, Haven't you heard the old phrase: A plummer has the worst plumbing in his own home! I know my dad was like this. I love your color choices. The red already looks great and any of your choices will look super! Can't wait to see it finished, maybe I'll get inspired to tackle mine! xo Pam

  24. That is going to be very exciting, love the colors!


  25. That was my inspiration photo for my kitchen redo too! Only I decided not to do the red cabinets since we're be moving in another year or so. I will enjoy my dream kitchen through you! Looking forward to your redo!

  26. Of course I love anything red and your kitchen will look fabulous! It is a lot of work but it will be so worth it! I love your colors! Fun!

    Cheery wave!


  27. Are you really, really, REALLY gonna do it?

  28. Oh, that will be so pretty! Red cabinets!! I can't wait to see it. Yes, blogging keeps us on our toes. I had all harvest gold appliances and sink when I married in 78. I was soooo proud of it! lol

  29. It'll be gorgeous, Judy. I can't wait. Take lots of photos. J

  30. Wow, when you decide to make a change, Judy, you really go for it! : ) I love that inspiration kitchen you've pictured. I think that would look great, especially with the white.

  31. Looking forward to seeing your redo progress as my kitchen and bathrooms need help here. One of my baths has a harvest gold vanity top, so know what you are saying.
    Thanks for stopping by. Actually renew tags was the only thing on my written list. Guess I should add the other things, mark them and maybe it will look like I accomplished more. :-D
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
    Gloomy here, storms predicted for tomorrow. :/
