Kitchen Update Video



So? Did you guess the color I'm painting my Kitchen? :-)

Well gang, I hate to say it, but we are STILLLLL working in the Kitchen.
I know I promised to post a video of our progress, so I'm going to follow through and show you a sneak peek, PLUS a little peek into one of my favorite rooms here at the Lettered Cottage. :-)
We're THIS CLOSE to being done in here, so I'll post a more finished reveal tomorrow. (I mean it!)

Still a LONG ways to go. Stainless appliances, new countertops, a rug, new lighting...I need it all...sigh....

Truth is, I wouldn't be happy if I didn't have a "To Do" list. :-)
I mean, can you imagine me living in a house where there was nothing to re-design or nothing to decorate?

Congratulations on being featured as a blog of note, Layla. The reading room seemed so quite and cozy. I'd love to do some reading there! The starfish near the lamp really got my attention. That was a very nice touch.

Good luck on your redecoration. Ü

Congrats on all the new followers! And for Blogs of NOte, that is so cool. Your videos are so much fun to watch, can't wait to see the finish & how could I not have guess aqua for the walls...of course!

Layla...
I stumbled onto your blog yesterday...love your designs! You can tell that it is something that you really love. I also LOVE your approach to your consulting services. It allows the buyer to select the level of help that is needed. I am currently buying my first home (at 54 years old)...can't wait until escrow closes so you can help me with the many design challenges!

the video did not work for me. i dont know if anyone else had this problem.

i just can't wait to see the finish result.

now as i read the other comments i am noticing that the video was not much but just a tease.

i did love the blue color of the wall in the picture.

Chris said...

I can't STAND it! I'm in love with a tiny picture of it, so I KNOW I'm going to love it! Beautiful!!!

Tracie said...

great choice using Imogen on your video! :D can't wait to see the finished project!

Layla, could you also post photos tomorrow of your kitchen in addition to the video? Those of us in the "outbacks" with only dial-up service cannot view the videos. Thanks so much!

I'm sure when it's done, it will be beautiful. As far as living in your house with nothing to redo or redecorate, I'm reminded of something an old friend told me when I bought my first home. He said "As soon as you finish and think you are done, there will be something else you will want to change, so take your time." In fact, at the time, he was working on things in his home that he had lived in for the past 20 years. Just enjoy the house and the processes that go along with it.

Indigo Robe said...

This is a sickness, I have checked your blog at least 10 times today!!!! I showed my husband your black cabinets and the before and after photos, expecting him to hesitate and question me about my choice -- but he LOVED the idea! I am so excited to see the final results!!!!

Rachete said...

It's coming along nicely!

Sheryl said...

No video yet?

Layla said...

Hi Sheryl!

Nope, the video looked so dark, and you couldn't see the detail as much as I had hoped- so I took photos instead.

Layla, well, I started looking at your house a couple days ago, and I have went "backward" I suppose. Anyhow, when I got to the first few post and saw where it started, WOW! UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! You all are very talented, and look like a supersweet couple. :) Now, I have a question for you. I want to put beadboard in my kitchen, behind my cabinets. But, the wall goes on for another 15 feet past my cabinets, into my dining room, and I really dont want beadoard in there. So, do you have any ideas on what I could put where the beadboard meets the drywall, to make it look right? Thank you so much. :)
