I need to brag about my mom once again. If you are an old blog friend, then you know that my mom restored a 1912 house that was built by my great-great-uncle. If you are new, click on the Walnut Avenue tag on the side of my blog and you’ll be amazed at what my mom has accomplished since 2009.
Mama has been contemplating what to do with her Walnut Avenue kitchen since she first started to restore the house. Most people would hire a kitchen designer, hire out the work, and then enjoy their kitchen. Not Mama. She likes to do everything herself.
After taking a bit of a house restoration break for the spring and summer, she’s been hard at work on her kitchen. Even though she’s not finished, she still has her kitchen decorated with her collections. I love that!
Her table turned island was built by Creed Scanlon, the son of the original owner. This table always sat on my grandmother’s porch by the door. Come back later this week to see Creed’s high school diploma! Mr. SP restored the light for Mama. She got it for $4.00 by giving the antique shop owner a hug. You do what you have to do to get a deal!!
I am so proud of my mom for restoring this house and for making it the home she’s always dreamed of having. I love to visit her because there’s always some new accomplishment to see.
I’ll share more Walnut Avenue updates this week, so be sure to come back!
