Hey all!  Hope that Thursday is being kind.  It’s my favorite…you know.  😉  So…today I am going to share the end result with you.  Or is it just the beginning?  The beginning of a kitchen that I am in love with and the beginning of more home cooked goodness.  I like it that way.  Let’s call it a new beginning.

I love having a handy-dandy Mr. I love it that even though he might not always see my vision, until I show him pictures, that he trusts my instincts…and jumps right into the boat with me.  Especially when I say….“This is what I would like for my birthday.”  I have learned that if I will be patient…my birthday will roll around again and again. (Thankfully.) It’s also so fun that he has his dad to work by his side.  After all…two mathmaticians are better than one.  (He gets that handy-dandy gene from his dad.  I am so thankful that Papaw passed it on.)

I cannot stress enough, just how pleased that I am with our new backsplash.  It added the amazing bit of “farmhousey” that I was longing for.  It was actually a very frugal way to add a backsplash and it was exactly what I wanted.  You cannot beat that.

The crazy thing is, I wasn’t even aware that it was the thing to do.  I know.  I’m late to yet another party.  One night when I couldn’t sleep, I thought to look on Pinterest for beadboard backsplash.  I then blew up my followers feed with picture after picture of that very thing.  I was smitten.  Plus I had the pictures to show my Mr. Then the big moment came.  I realized that my favorite blogger kitchen of all time had a similar thing going on.  Have you ever read For the Love of a House blog?  She has amazing taste.  She also has the multiple jars that you see in our kitchen. I have seen it pinned multiple times.  So you know that others are crazy about it.  I love it.  Their home is beautiful inside and out.  Is that called a blog crush?  I’m thinkin’ so.  🙂

I hope that you have been inspired today Dirt Roaders.  You know…once you find the style that fits you…there are endless possibilities.  Usually there is a thrifty way to do what you would love.  Don’t be afraid to try.  You will like it…and you just might love it. (Especially when it comes in sheets that are already white.)
