Kitchen remodels, as many of you know, can be a daunting project. This remodel, which wasn’t like starting from the studs but consisted of more than just paint, was overwhelming at times and took several months from start to finish.
For the past several years this little chest has resided in my entry hall. I honestly can’t even remember how long I’ve had it. I’m trying to picture it in my previous home…but I can’t…so I guess that means less than 10 years since that’s how long we’ve lived in this home. Almost.
EDIT: MY sweet sis-in-law reminded me that is was at my previous house so I’ve had it longer than 10 years! LOL! And of course, once she reminded me where it was I remembered!
My memory is so crazy these days. I remember the most random of inconsequential things but can’t seem to recall important details. But that’s a post for another day. If I remember.

I’ve never had a guest bedroom. Well…technically I suppose I did when I first got married and way back when I only had one child but it’s been a LONG time.
Kaleigh moved out a year ago, and me being so on-the-ball about getting things done around here, we’re now working on turning the spare bedroom into a cute guest bedroom.
I toyed with the idea of moving my work room up here. Or turning it into a hangout space for the two kiddos still at home. But honestly this room still functions best for us as a bedroom so a bedroom it will stay.
When Emily was building her new home she began gathering inspiration pics and ideas she hoped to incorporate into her new home.
One of those inspiration pics was the above photo that she saved to her phone after stumbling across it on Pinterest. Later she showed the photo to her friend Shannon mentioning she’d like to have something similar painted in her kitchen.
It just so happened that Shannon knew me, knew about Beyond the Screen Door and the rest…as they say…is history!
