Daughter's Kitchen Revealed--Beautiful!

I am so excited to show you
My Daughter's Kitchen. .
You may recall early in the summer
I told you how she wanted to Re-do her kitchen. .
 This is how it looked after she took all the
Wall-paper and border off the walls and back-splash
The story goes that she was thinking of painting the cupboards
Dark Brown. . .(oh, no!)
I suggested to her that she paint them a deep dark Red
Then antique over them. .
And that she paint the walls a creamy yellow. ..
She was a little sceptical at first but later 
Admitted deep in her heart she wanted them Red
She just didn't know how it would go over with her Husband, RJ.
Well, with some gentle persuasion she convinced him
Red was the way to go and Yellow was the color for the walls. .

He was soon on-board and suggested
 bead-board and crown molding!

 RJ is one handy guy and soon it was all taking shape
Well, here it is today!
It is so cute!
 I love all the cute "country" things she has on the drop-down

 She actually found the curtains she wanted
 Before she started painting. . .
Just so happens they match!
 Daughter and her Husband did a beautiful job
I just showed them how to paint the cupboards
And how to antique them. . .
 They worked on this during the hot months of July and August
When I would go in the garage to help paint. . .
I would have to leave
Too hot for this Momma!
 Just a few minor things to finish up. .
She wants a glass door for her pantry. . And
She has some old windows she wants to fix up
For the drop-down shelves. .
Good job Sweetie!
She says she isn't talented like her Momma,
But I disagree!
She out-shines me in so many ways.

She used
Martha Stewart Paint - Barn Red
Antique was Min-Wax -  Provincial
Behr - Whisper Yellow
