~A Kim Style Hunting Room, Dining Room and Ktichen~

Well, are y'all ready to continue our tour at Kim's home? I'll try not to put anything else in my purse...lol ;) Try I said! Repeat after me~ I will not have sticky fingers during this tour!Kim's words~This is our living room at the front of the house across from the dining room. It is a very comfortable room which is flooded with sunlight in the morning. Good little sitting area to greet guests or to just sit in there and read a book.

This is where the trying stops.... ;) Somebody GRAB that clock!!!!!! Run to the car with it! I'll cover your back.

Oh, Kim mentioned to me that she was first to paint her doors black and Kelly { her sister } copied her...lol ;) I'll let them deal with that own their own blog...HA! I love the black doors...who ever came up with it first!

I don't think I can get that window in the car, not to mention Kim might notice it missing....Houston we have a problem.. ;)

OOOOOH Honey, look at that hat! Love the hunt room and now, I think I need a hunt room! I love the style of this room!!!! I have a front living room...HMMMM!




Moving on into the dining room~ the picture below is the dining room before Kim did a makeover on it.

Kim's Words~I repainted this room from dark blue walls and ceiling to a warm sunny golden yellow. Benjamin Moore York Harbor on ceiling and Stuart Gold on walls. The color really opened up the space and now it is one of my favorite rooms





~and after below~

Love the change! A refreshing change!


~Moving into the Kitchen~ Repeat again....I will not have sticky fingers!

Kim's Words~ Went from all white kitchen with outdated wallpaper and white linoleum floors to color and warmth. New cabinet and door fronts painted and antiqued, granite, tumble marble backsplash (we did ourself) new hardware. Had to keep white appliances, still in good shape, go with all the white trim, anyway


Oh my gosh ~ look at that clock...I have a thing for big clocks! I already seen one..she doesn't need two...;)

See the stove hood~ her hubby made that! He's a keeper, Kim!

Notice the furbaby~too cute!

Notice the planter she has her cooking utensils in.....I need to add one of those to my shopping list! Love that idea! Do you all see that gorgeous back splash...Kim and hubby did that!

Adorable cabinet!

Okay~ here we have another problem with sticky fingers ;) Who's {we}...that's Me, myself and I .....it's a hard job to keep all 3 of us under control...lol ;) Those rooster hooks are too cute!

I looooooooove how this side of the kitchen cabinets was painted black!


Another cute furbaby! Oh, and an adorable breakfast room! Notice the transom window...Gorgeous! That RED hutch ain't bad either!

Love that RED phone hanging on the wall! That is something I don't see much anymore! Y'all remember those days of stretching the phone cord all the way across the kitchen, and when you bought a new cord...you promised yourself you would not stretch it out...lol ;)

Oh no, right now I have a sick feeling in my stomach! Why? I use to have one of those blue teapot lamps...yes I did! I use to have tons of blue and white! Everything in my house was Blue at one time, for years! I got tired of the blue and yep, you guessed it...got rid of the blue and white teapot lamp! Now, I wish I had it back...It's impossible to keep everything!

Look girls, finally something we {me, myself and I again} don't have to steal, or covet....these roosters are for sale...hee hee! ;) Aren't they adorable sitting on top of that RED hutch!?
Isn't this a beautiful home! Full of warmth and coziness! One of my favorite things about this home is the colors! I love a home full of color! It's so much more fun! Thank you again Kim for allowing me to feature your beautiful home. The tour will continue with the Bedrooms and Bathrooms, later this week!
I am still working on the guest room....I am looking for a drop leaf table for the guest room, to use for a place to work on crafts. I found one, but it was a little to pricey, you know I will try to find one for alot less $$$. I keep watching Craig's list. When I have the room finished I will show it off... ;)
If you have not seen the other posts on Kim's house..they are the next 2 posts below! It's a must see!
Hope y'all have a wonderful week! Thank you so much for stopping by! Please feel free to leave comments! Kim and I enjoy reading them!
