Kitchen Today... she's feeling aged

Here are a few shots of my kitchen.

How do you like that silver metal edge to my counters?  It's like tin or something. Dont' mind the Jif or the cell phone.
My counters are this gray dingy blue-ish color. Who knows what they really looked like years and years and years ago, when they were installed.
The gray continues on my walls as a backsplash.
She's going in for a "Botox" of sorts today.  A makeover, nothing drastic, but I think she'll feel refreshed.

And here's my first attempt at something appliqued and a slipcover for the pillow.

Have a good day everyone.

I like the pillow. Have fun on your makeover. You sound a little down, I hope your new look gives you a pick-me-up.

Very cute pillow! My bathroom vanity knows how your kitchen counter feels. I am in the process of giving her a little makeover too. Can't wait to feel the end result!

I can't wait to see the update! And the pillow is darling. Thanks for sharing.


(Oh and I just purchased a new domain, so my URL is different. I don't know if your sidebar will update with new posts, with the old URL. I'm now officially in case you wanted to change it.)

I know about those kitchen makeovers. We lived in military housing the first few years of our marriage, so the metal trim around countertops is all to familiar. As are cinder block walls (YUCK). Can't wait to see pics of your makeover.
