Work Week - Day 3

Day 3 - Monday

We started the day with a quick birthday celebration for Cara.  Tim's parents, sister and (baby) nephew arrived bright and early with breakfast.  Visiting with family over coffee and cuddling with a sweet baby boy, it was tempting to linger all morning.  However, with a Friday deadline looming to get the house ready for a housewarming party, we couldn't afford to burn more daylight, so we hugged good-bye and got busy on the kitchen.

Moving boxes out

clearing the floor and counters

Stirring the paint

 Paint:  "Mariner" by Sherwin-Williams 

Mr. D did the rolling

Cara and I did the cutting in.
Lots of cutting in!
We also put a fresh coat of  bright white paint on the trim and wainscoting.

The kitchen went from blah
to bright

Taking pictures at night doesn't do the color justice --
The color is light and bright ... and oh so cheerful!

Day 3 work complete.
Time to celebrate the birthday girl.
Montgomery Inn Boathouse for dinner.

Amazing appetizer
Sauteed scallops wrapped in bacon, garnished with water chestnuts, chopped egg and hot bacon dressing

Blackened Tilapia for Mr. D 
Ribs for the rest of us

nom. nom. nom.


  1. The kitchen color looks great, so cheerful! Love the bibs for dinner!

  2. I like the wainscoting, and your blog is snowing!
