Christmas Dinner at the Daly's

I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas with their loved ones close by. We had my parents, and my sister's family over for Christmas day. We ATE and ATE a lot of good food and laughed a lot! 

Here are some pics of my table decorations. It's not Lonny material, ;) but I thought it turned out nice with the things I had on hand. 

Can't finish the night without my Mom on her Accordion while the kids dance to Christmas Carols! 
(I used to do this when I was a kid. I love traditions!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Gold Accents | Office

I am loving these gold brackets used to hold up the white shelving in this office. It's simple and just stunning!
 I may just use this idea in my little office/pantry nook. I love finding great inspiration for your own house. Have you found any lately?

The BIG Kitchen Reveal!

 OK, So if you've been reading and waiting.  We finally were able to finish the kitchen doors. ( Still a few more things to do to them to bring them to perfection) But none the less, we put them on for all of our Christmas visitors. 

So without further ado. The much anticipated KITCHEN REVEAL.

So much brighter, right! I LOVE IT!

We added all new canned lighting and under mount lighting to brighten it up in here. 
We painted the cabinets White Dove by BM.


My husband made the Concrete Counters just by researching them online. (Amazing, Yes he is!)
Then we both did the Subway tile backsplash. 
(also,Yes I am very proud of that)

We Spray painted our Vintage 60's Ovens (Yes they still work) silver to match the rest of the appliances. We probably will redo those better in the future. They just don't make things like they used to.

This was the biggest splurge in the Kitchen $700.  The Farmhouse Sink.
 (which by the way was on the cheaper side. These bad boys are just expensive)

We added big chunky molding to the bulk head, over the cabinets to really make a statement.

Just a few Christmas Details in the Kitchen

Total cost on this renovation is estimated around $2700. give or take.

 By keeping all the existing cabinets and appliances. We (I really mean my Amazing DIY Superstar Husband) made the concrete counters and we DIY backsplash. Also, (husband) DIY installed all of the canned lighting. So yes, we were able to save a few pennies by doing it all ourselves. ;)

Was it worth it? Absolutely
Was it Hard? 100% Not easy. Honestly, most painting, plumbing, and electrical are JUST HARD!
Would I do it again? Not anytime soon. ;) But I do LOVE IT!!

My Kitchen Sneak Peak

I know it's not the best pic to share but hey it's better then nothing right?
I have shared this picture on my Instagram. But I also wanted you guys to see it on my blog. I am very much pleased with the way the Concrete Countertops look. I will for sure share more pics as soon as the cabinet under the sink is finished. (we had to redo the doors to fit the new sink) and yes I am LOVING my sink. By far my favorite thing in the kitchen besides the counters of course. :)

Happy Monday!
