We Know! It's GREEN, and We LOVE IT!!!

Yes, it's a little shocking at first. But, imagine the "stainless look" appliances, the dark counter tops, and Seth's pottery to tone the green down. The skins of the cabinets still need to be put on too. I'm sure you can see the refrigerator goes in that big space on the left, then the dishwasher, sink below the window and the oven and microwave hood on the other wall on the right. We are pretty excited!
I was really happy tonight when Seth took me to see the cabinets that were just installed today! I even let out a few screams of joy. Thankyou Bro. Beazer for installing our cabinets. You are the greatest!
Here is our master bathroom. It is the same as the kids bathroom. The title was installed last week as well, and we are very happy with it. As well as the huge vanity! Six drawers! I know the blue is a little light and babyish, but I like to think of it as water, refreshing, spa like. Nice uh?

Sorry, the lighting is horrible! But this is the living room which is painted a Toasted Almond, which we also LOVE! It is also in the front hallway and back hallway.

This will be Maggie's room with a few touches of pink and green. Seth did a great job picking out this dusty yellow. Not too soft, and not too bright. There were just way too many colors to choose from! How could I possibly make that kind of decision!







This is Benjamin's room, we are thinking a Jungle theme. Seth might paint blades of grass with some hidden jungle animals. This was also the first green color we painted the kitchen, but we thought it was a little too neon, so we went to the next shade darker to what it is now.
