Many friends and readers who knew and read about my recent kitchen renovation have requested that I share photos of the finished product. I have been delaying because it isn’t quite finished; however, the realization has set in that it will take time to find the perfect fabric for curtains and just the right artwork to adorn my walls so I have given in. Most people think I am crazy to paint my kitchen pink (especially my friends in the real estate business), but I don’t care. I love it – I think it is happy and whimsical, and I love the 1950’s retro look. If only I could snap my fingers and magically transform my mismatched appliances into the Big Chill retro appliances to match my retro look. Oh well, everything works and that is what is important.
