Demo Day!

Don’t be fooled by this photo. My frown has been turned upside down now that the demo day has arrived! The guys are at the house as we speak, ripping up my old, crusty vinyl flooring!! I thought I’d share a little of the “before” today…so you can get a feel for what we’re dealing with…

Can you tell how much I like this flooring?

Here’s another photo of the Mr. admiring our ‘yellow brick road’ flooring.

What a soothing color!

What you don’t see on the other side of this room are the white cabinets, white sink and white subway tile backsplash. However, I promise to show lots of great photos of the entire room when it’s all put together! Can’t wait to show you guys when it’s done!!

Meanwhile, I thought I’d share some other randomness:

Do you love vintage posters as much as I do? Last week, my pal Kathryn sent me a link to www.freevintageposters.com, where you can download and print FREE vintage posters! And, yes, I did say FREE. I feel some decoupage light switch plate covers coming on!! Wouldn’t one of these look great in our newly redone kitchen?

Then I received another email from my good friend Rita, who went to an estate sale and scored this amazing vintage Mickey/Minnie Mouse cookie jar!

Any Disney collectors out there? If so and you know something about this cookie jar, let us know!

While planning for some other fun details in our kitchen last week, I ordered two vintage cheese crates from Julie’s Etsy shop, Hunt and Found. I LOVE the graphics on these old boxes!! I’m not going to tell you just yet what we plan to do with them, but I will tell you that it will be a fun detail in the new kitchen!

Gettin' cheesy! Too bad I'm lactose intolerant though!

Stay tuned next week…as I should have some fun reveals to show you! Have a great week and happy hunting!

One thought on “Demo Day!

  1. LOVE your cheesy find! Knowing your amazing imagination, I can see them turning into anything from table lamps to hats! Thanks for mentioning the cookie jar to your “fans.” You would never ever want to put cookies into it; the interior has a bazillion nooks and crannies for crumbs to take up permanent residence. So I think it was intended as a collectible, even back when it was created. Which I am guessing was 1940-ish (just like me!).
