Summer Kitchen...Christmas 2010

I thought I would share a few pictures of my Summer kitchen all decked out for the holidays...Now remember this is the kitchen that I done a major overhaul on a few months ago...I added bead board for the back splash...then painted my counter tops..using Peppercorn paint from Caromal Colors... I'm proud to say hubby didn't help me one bit..I'm really excited in how it turned out...it looks like a whole different kitchen..I actually got the idea of painting my kitchen counter tops from seeing how Karen ..catskillmtnprims had done hers..She's a member on http://www.aprimitiveplace.org/ and they published her makeover in the first issue of A Primitive Place magazine......So I'm giving all the credit of my kitchen makeover to Karen for giving me the inspiration to tackle such a job...
I'll post some more pictures of the entire counter top area tomorrow or Friday...Thanks for stopping by...Have a great day and stay warm where ever you are...
Prim hugs,
Trena

I just love your home. The decor is nice and so are those counter tops. I don't think we live to far from each other as well! I can't wait to see more. Blessings to you from northern Maryland. Tress

It did turn out beautifully. I love the blue jars in the wood box.
My summer kitchen gets packed full of patio furniture and flower pots!
You have a beautiful summer kitchen!

I just LOVE all the jars with all the goodies inside of them!!!
Now... I saw your kitchen in the magazine... and I have WHITE countertops (cant talk my hubby into getting new)... they are in good shape... but they are WHITE! SO please let me know ... does the paint hold up against the elements... wetness/ heat/ cuts??

Trena things could not be any more beautiful if you tried. Your displays are just so pretty and festive. I love the box with the jars and greenery. I can't wait to see more of your summer kitchen.
