Happy Feature Friday!

I about peed my pants when I checked our blog stats last night and saw that Design*Sponge featured our humble little kitchen + dining room. What a lovely surprise and a nice way to head into the weekend! I've loved Design*Sponge for years now and seeing our home on their website makes me feel like a kid on Christmas!

I'm elated that today's Friday and after a full day of schoolio, we have a St. Louis AT HOME magazine interview scheduled. I'm excited but nervous at the same time because I never know what strangers will think of our home for the first time. These journalists are used to covering and photographing mansions... not 1100 sq ft. ranch homes. Oh well--I hope our love for our spaces shines through and they feel our happiness, too! Maybe some of their readers will see what two teacher salaries can get you...hehe!

Enjoy your weekends, friends! I'm ready for some relaxation time, that's for sure!

I found your kitchen make-over on design sponge and just about died! It is sooooo beautiful, thanks so much for the inspiration. My husband and I bought a late 60's style ranch house to fix up about three years ago. I had painted our kitchen walls a dark grey color very similar to yours and have been wanting to paint my very plain pine cupboards but have been very nervous about how it would turn out. Its like your post was meant for me! My doubts have been dashed, I am so excited to get started.

Thanks for sharing your talents!
