Kitchen Aid and Dishwasher...

Had a couple samples of Uppercase Living lying around so thought I would decorate a couple appliances...
Here is the Before of my Kitchen Aid:

Here is the After:

(I have since added a dz. of so more dots to the kitchen aid, but you get the idea)

Here is my After of the dishwasher (forgot to take a before)

I think they both look great and add alittle whimsy to my ugly kitchen :)

Spring Cleaning

Well, as I said I would do some spring cleaning and it has started... my hubby and I tackled the "school" room downstairs and have about4 black garbage bags and 4 boxes of trash!! I say about because right now it is just a huge pile in the middle of the room. I am happy that my hubby helped, mainly because our now 6 week old son is not always the most complient and everyday that I want to get something done is the day, he HAS to be held all day!
A few more little projects I am working on... polka dotted my Kitchen Aid, decorated my dishwasher and painting the trim for finally finishing the upstairs bathroom. I do have some pics on my camera, but having problems downloading them onto the hopefully will figure that out today and post some pics.. :)
I have a friend coming over on Monday to help me declutter the kitchen. She is a great friend who LOVES to organize and keeps a very clean home...I on the other hand have great intentions and want a clean home, but don't like all the steps to get to it... :)
Until later...

Spring Break....

I have been reading some blogs lately and everyone is spring cleaning and getting ready to purge during spring break...well, that sounds like a great idea and maybe I will try and do that next week....even though this is spring break week...we have a few additions to our family....friends are going to Hawaii for their 10 year anniversary and we volunteered to watch their boys (1,3 and 6) so needless to say I am not doing any projects this week.....My hubby was able to take the time off (for the most part) and help so it is going well and I do know I am very thankful I do not normally have 7 kids under 7!!! :)
Everyone enjoy Spring Break and I'll see you in a week!!!

A progression

Ok, just wanted to share with you in one post of my Master Bedroom changes....My sister came over and walked into my bedroom and told me it looked like a designer bedroom....I started laughing and said oh yeah with the huge pile of trash and the boxes of hand-me-down baby boy clothes I need to go through and the baskets of laundry I need to haul down to the laundry room... but she said, I didn't really pay attention to that just how everything coordinated and decorated....Well, Thank God for sisters, since I looked around and was surprised it did look nice (besides all the above I mentioned) so I thought I would post a few pics of the transformation....
Before (09 when we moved in)

Start of the transformation: (Feb. 2010)

After: (March 2011)
