Beadboard Beautiful Beadboard!!!!

Okay for your own good do not enlarge pics , everything is a mess,but whats a little mess amongst(sp) friends right. It is because we are installing beadboard paneling in my kitchen!!!! You don't know how excited I am, I have been waiting 10 yrs for this. I can hardly wait to finish it. This is also a sneak peek at my red cabinet I've been waiting to finish up, thats what started all this, we were at Lowe's when I showed Jeff the bead board and said Pleeeease!!The picture below (yuk) is me painting the trim.
Halfway there!! Hopefully I'll have more pic's to post tomarrow. I hope everyone has a good week!

P.S. The coke bottles in the first pic are holding the wood up before Jeff nailed it, just in case anyone was wondering if I was trying some kind of weird decorating style or if I had completly lost my mind!LOL.

Hi Kelly. That's going to look lovely! Good for you.
I ended the mosaic frame and posted the winner today because we have to be gone on June 30.
When I get caught up I'll try to mosaic something pretty for your home.

How fun!! I'm also wanting some beadboard in my kitchen. I'm really trying to convince my hubby it would be a fun project. He is still undecided. Can't wait to see the finished pics :0)

Hi Kelly!! I totally love beadboard too! You are going to LOVE it!! Im sure its a huge project! and from one beadboard backsplash girl to another, ;) just make sure you get the "scrub -able" finish for the paint...I have a pic in my blog of my beadboard, its in my kitchen , or easy to see in the pic with the Bunny painting over my sink ( on the right hand side of my first page ) Good luck!! cant wait to see when its done! I can say another piece of advice, when doing the primer keep it light so the paint doesnt fill the groves too much ;) I made that mistake and had to sand it back ;) argh ;) oh what fun it is ;) anyway, Im sure yours will look fabulous, you have the perfect starting point: Talent :) enjoy ~ cynthia ~

Hi Kell,
I too am a beadboard girl but since my kitchen cabinets are already beadboard, I opted to not put any in the kitchen, however we did put it upstairs in our bathroom and I love it. I can't wait to see your finished project. It is late as I am on hubby's computer and he is leaving again. I have been out looking at new laptops but yikes the prices!!! Have fun.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)

Hi Kelly,
You are going to LOVE that beadboard! My hubs remodeled my kitchen last year and used beadboard around the island and sides of the cabinets. I think putting beadboard on the backsplash would be very nice. I love your red cabinet - and I love your green island table too! Hugs, Patti
