I love life!

Hi, I am Jo and this is my blog about my life. Here you will find entries on cooking, gardening, food safety and the interesting things happening in my search for an inexpensive and healthy way of living. My home is located in North Florida and I am relearning how to take care of myself at almost 50. This is the deep South so my garden and season may be a bit different than yours. I look forward to seeing what you have to say as time passes. Read on and have a beautiful day!

Final Kitchen Pictures - Love it!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the new kitchen 

The kitchen is done. Or as done as it is going to get for now.  

Rob rescued the oak pantry, artwork, and the bar stools from  a thrift store. Granite counter tops were a free find from Craig's list and the top cabinets were recycled. The deep sink was a steal on Craig's List. The new items; lower cabinets, lighting, and back splash were all clearance items or discounts. The dining table is one we had and the table cloth is new but from recycled plastic. The floors are the same ones we have had and we did not need to change the as we stuck to the original layout. I will be paying to get the grout cleaned since we are keeping the tile in place. The curtains were from clearance fabric that I made both in the dining area and in the kitchen. The same fabric was used to recover the dining chairs so it all ties together. 

Rob worked so hard on this and I couldn't be prouder of him and what he has accomplished.    

Extra counter space with oak pantry.
