Gorgeous new goodies- and some freebies!

Help!! I am living in a dust storm and can barely move in my own house! It's finally happening, we are renovating out kitchen and dining room! We bought this house 11 years ago on auction for just about nothing, it was huge, old fashioned, remember Biggie Best floral and Chintz and wall paper, and horrible brown carpets? Slowly but surely we have been renovating for 11 years, and I think this is the biggest renovation we have done. I have a huge kitchen but lime green got a bit much for me! We are adding a scullery and tiling the entire house except for the bedrooms and lounge, which are wood. I have a make shift"kitchen" and the lounge is full of boxes. I have not cooked for 2 weeks which is the only bonus!

Some photos taken on the day we started stripping the kitchenAnd this is hopefully what it will look like when completed!The Scullery And kitchenThis is what it looks like now!Scullery built and walls are being plastered. the plumbing and electrics almost completed. The kitchen should be installed in about 3 weeks. We are not tiling the walls, using a type of cement paint with a texture and the only colour will be a red/orange glass splashback behind the hob, similar to thisAnd something red/orange in the way of lighting, I kind of like this modern take on a chandelierWill post more pics as things progress

Oh Jenni, you kitchen is going to be AMAZING! If you saw mine, you'd know just HOW much I really mean that! LOL!

Thank you for the GORGEOUS QP. I am SO loving Kim's new kit!

Monty is ADORABLE! I was having a bit of a toss up as to whether I'd rather have a new kitchen or a new puppy like Monty! He, he ... :)

Have a lovely weekend!

Wow, that kitchen is going to be wonderful. Think you will want to cook all the time once that is finished. Would love to see your entire house. Thanks for the cc kit, it's very pretty and your new baby has such a cute face.

LOVE the size of your kitchen area. It's going to be absolutely wonderful. Will Monty always be that lovely grey colour? He's going to grow up to be a BIG boy by the looks of those paws.
Thanks for your cc kit. It's really cute.
