Today I was at Home Depot and got a glimpse of the new Martha Stewart cabinet line ….they looked really pretty! The clerk gave me a catalog and I snapped some photos for you in case you haven’t seen them. I’ve been wanting to update our kitchen for awhile. When we moved in the first thing we did 6 years ago was paint our cupboards and change out our hardware. Since then, it has pretty much been on hold…other projects and things in life cause lack of motivation. Since I have been starting to feel better I’m gaining some motivation. Even though we won’t replace all of our cabinets in our kitchen I’m thinking about a few changes and after seeing this new line….Martha looks like a great choice with good options! I really want to add some glassed doors, more open shelves and beefed up corbels… along with a few new upper cabinets…. I think the great thing about painted cupboards is the fact that you can add to them and paint out the new ones to match and it all flows…. even if they are a different color. I’ll have to price compare with a local cabinet maker to see what my best cost option is.
PS. I heard they are also going to start selling her drapes/curtains in late Sept….I’m kind of excited to see those.
This is the only store display they have at our local store right now (photo below). I’m hoping they do larger examples. Loving this pale yellow….
Nice baseboards and beautiful extras like these fantastic corbels!!
No wasted space…here’s a cute end cabinet message center…
Really pretty potting station….
She shows you color ideas and has matching paint.
Plus special corian coordinates. I’m curious about pricing…the salesperson didn’t have any pricing info because it is so new… I’m so happy that they share the paint colors…. I’m really liking the yellow and green and have been thinking of doing one of them on the island.
Speaking of kitchens….I have been working on our kitchen back splash today and I’ll share a sneak peek. I’ve had bead-board wallpaper sitting in a box for the last 6 months waiting for me to use it. Well, the last few days I have been car less and felt motivated to get at it…. I’m putting the paper right on top of the Formica (sort of a temporary fix in my mind). They used the same thing on the back splash as they did on the counter. I’m not sure when we are replacing the counters. … I want to do something to the black edge, maybe paint it…. I’m not sure how well it will last. If anyone has ever done it can you please offer advice

after peek one section done with the help of this product…..I know this is nothing new to blogland but just decided to share just in case you haven’t seen paintable beadboard wall paper. I’ve looked at another type and it didn’t have the same depth in the grooves, this looks very realistic! I noticed on the Home Depot website that Martha has her own paintable beadboard wall paper. I haven’t seen it in person to compare it.
…several more to go…. Good news is it only took just over 10 minutes. I still need to paint it but it doesn’t look bad as is….
There is a little metal trim on the left side and at the bottom, I left it there for now….. I’m still working on an idea to protect the bottom from water…this section isn’t near the sink.
