Custom Built Range Hood

I had to share my new lovely custom built range hood, I just love it! It's only primed right now but hopefully it will be painted tomorrow.

I designed it and my sweetie built it, and I must say he did a great job. We built out of oak plywood, custom made corbels and molding.
I'm happy with the price too, we built the entire piece including the exhaust
insert for under $280.00.

Painted Kitchen Floor

P1040234

Well it's finally done, well at least the painting of the floor is, I still need to put a several coats of polyurethane on it.
Since our entire house has wood floors and the kitchen has 2 openings that connect to the rest of the wood floors, I didn't want to try and match it, so I decided to paint it.
We laid the oak floor ourselves and while it was easy it was back breaking work. I originally wanted to paint it but after laying the floor my sweetie told me that he wanted to see the grain of the wood, so I white washed it instead.

Once I made up the stencil and got started it, it much easier that I thought it was going to be.

I added the turquoise circles to add a little color without being too overwhelming.

I'm happy with the way it turned out and can't wait for my kitchen to be completed.
