Home Improvements with Trim

I know, I know . . . yet another set of pictures of my hallway:)  Hopefully, you're not getting tired of so many pictures. Well, I promise that until I make some MAJOR changes, this will be the last of the pictures. But I thought you might want a peek of the hall with it's new lights 
(never mind the purple light bulbs, those will be changed out with clear ASAP!)


Here are also is the latest addition to our home. 
The NEW white table! I am in LOVE :)
We now need some MAJOR rug and curtain action!

Here are the Before and After pictures



Notice how by just adding the extra trim around the top of the back door and below the windows really made a difference :)

Here is my inspiration picture for the kitchen. 
YES, I hope to add a bench to the one side of our table. 

My VERY nice cabinet guy is in the process of building it right now. I really WANTED to buy this amazing bench in the picture below from Pottery barn but it costs $499 and my budget didn't allow for it, sooooo I got creative and found some inexpensive legs online and once again commissioned my cabinet guy to create a look-a-like bench for half the price of the brand name version.

 ahhhh, I can't wait for everything to come together! Where is that magic wand when I need it!?
