My "Dirty Little Secret"

Well, it isnt literly dirty, lol. I do clean it regularly....This is simply my first post of my kitchen.  Not very Romantic hugh?.......These darn roosters have taken over. I used to love um so much, now, not so much.....Hubby and i plan a "mini makeover" in here before summer. I thought my friends would enjoy seeing it in all its rooster glory..The makeover will include removing the border and painting the walls, a new chandy, new knobs for the cabinets, which i plan on shabby-ing up a bit more, new curtains, possibly new countertops, and saying bye bye to most of the roosters. A few of them are precious to me, and a few are valuable pieces, so ile have to make them work in the new decor..........









These are limited edition prints, keeper for sure, but ile have to do something with the frames.....



This guy is an old "TV light", so he's a keeper too.



This lil guy is an old Avon bottle, he's fun and one of my favorites..........


This one will also be staying, he's very old, and ive never seen another like him........


This one over the door frame..........he's outta here!




Last, but not least, this guy will be staying, he has a hole all the way thru him, i believe he was a lamp in a past life, lol.....Maybe he will be again?





The eating area where they all look down at u.....Im keeping the shelf.......just not all the darn roosters on it........



Yes, that is a baseball cap in the potato/onion basket............men. Say bye bye to the roosters, and stay tuned for hopeless romance coming to a kitchen near u, lol..........Bonnie

Bonnie- Isn't it funny how our interest in something waxes and wanes? We love something but then need a reprieve from it for a while....kinda like being married!;>)

Anyway, I can't wait to see what you do during your makeover. xo Diana

I can't wait to see your kitchen makeover. I have a tiny (I mean really tiny) kitchen and I plan to make it a bit more romantic too. I can't wait to see what you do!

Well Bonnie you know I love my roos. Mine have come and gone too, but they always fly back. Looks like you have a lot of sentiment with yours, so you will figure out a way to incorporate them for sure.

Some of your roosters look vintage. I'm sure you'll want to hang on to those. Funny how we really get into something and then tire of it. I once collected chickens for my kitchen. Now I try not to get caught up in any one certain thing. It makes it easier to change things out. Can't wait to see your new kitchen!
