Latest Project

You will remember in my last post, I promised to tell you about our latest kitchen project. Well here it is. My hubby installed an over the stove microwave for me. My old one sat on the counter taking up a huge amount of space. When I received my new appliance covers, I needed the counter space to display them. Thus the microwave had to be put somewhere else. This was the perfect solution to my problem. I would say it took my husband maybe two hours to install this. He had to remove the stove hood first in order to get it into place. We did not change out the overhead cupboards to make it flush at the bottom either. I don't mind that the microwave hangs a little lower than the cupboards beside it. It is the perfect height for everyone to reach it. I just love it where it is.

Please forgive the poor quality of the picture. My digital camera is not working so my daughter took this picture with her cell phone and sent it to me. We had no idea what the picture would look like because she dropped here phone while on vacation and the screen broke. She took this picture without being able to see it first. I see a glare from the back wall appearing in the microwave front. I think you can still see the concept of what we did. Can't wait to see what project we can come up with next. I'm thinking something along the lines of granite, mustard paint and wood?? Honey are you reading this???

I hope everyone is enjoying this week. Here in Ohio we have been having some beautiful weather. The temperature is averaging the mid to low 70's and it is just beautiful out. I wish it could stay like this all year round. In closing, I want to wish everyone a delightful week ahead. I'm trying to get inspired and start decorating for fall. One thing I did get accomplished is I made some faux caramel apples for decoration. Seems like everyone has been doing this as well. I will post later when I get them all dried and wrapped.

Until next time.....

Hugs and Blessings,
