LOVE THIS SO HARD! There are so many cute details, but my current favorite is the pine cone buttons on the snowman.

LOVE IT! In fact when I clicked through from my notification PM, and waited for an image to load I shouted "SON OF A NUTCRACKER!"

I recently completely what I am calling a "thorough surface remodel" of our kitchen. We didn't replace much, but did alter some things and refinished just about every  surface except the floor. There are a few more things to do, but I need to focus on some other projects while the weather is good!

There are essentially two sides to the kitchen: the side with all the kitchen stuff and the side with the wood stove and a hallway that leads to the laundry- and bathroom.

After on the kitchen side:

I refinished the cabinets inside and out, added a crown moulding to the uppers, raised the uppers, replaced the glass with zinc-plated steel, replaced the knobs and pulls. We did get a new sink and faucet, so reconfigured and refinished the counter for that. It was also way out of level, so had a handyman level it out and build the new part of the sink. I did the refinishing. I added a tile backsplash and replaced all the switches and outlets. I replaced the lighting and painted all the walls. I painted and replaced handles on the refrigerator.

After on the "fire side":

I repainted the walls, replaced the "cap" over the brick veneer, repaired and painted/glazed the brick, painted the stove and added the picture rail at the top of the wall.

Before, the whole deal:

We had added the island last autumn and it made living w/o the rest of the counter for over 3 weeks tolerable! It took about 5 months all told and we're pleased with the results. We like the look a lot more and the function is much improved, too. Whew!

I posted about the island on craftster here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=442769.0
And I have roughly a squillion blog posts from just about every week of this process if you'd like to see photos of the process or details.

Not exactly craft, but interior decorating and it fits the July theme of bathroom. I spent the holiday weekend repairing, resurfacing, and repainting my bathroom walls and then finally got to put up "new" decorations in there! There mirror and empty frames are ones I've had for over a decade and it's been a long, long time since the frames have been out of storage. The stags were a gift from a Christmas 2014... so kind of the other end of remembering where you put your gifts!
