Laundry Room Paint Update... before and after!

This room was 100% updated with Paint!

These are obviously the "after" pics... Owls and Pairs. Think it'll sell? I think it's trendy :)
Here's the ugly "before" with 70's dark cabinets. Also note that I moved the holes and chose fresh 'retro' hardware'.

Always coming up with something new here at Kustom Kate Studios!
Now I will be anxious to put some fresh tile down... hmmm I'm thinking slate!
Comments and criticism are always welcome!

Our Mini Road-Trip

On Saturday Mike and I decided to have an adventure together... so we went to the welcome center in Tulsa and picked up our maps and trail guides and state park guides for the summer! We decided to check out Natural Falls State Park in West Siloam OK The falls were beautiful! There was a short 20 or so min hike down into the gorge to be at the base of the falls. Then we headed back and continued on our road trip...
Since we were so close, we decided to wander around a bit in Arkansas... our most favorite state :) It really is so amazingly beautiful... We still want to retire there... or just move there someday! We ended up in Prarie Grove where we enjoyed our picnic lunch at the Prarie Grove Battle Field Park. Then we took the driving tour of the Civil War Battlefield; I read info at the stops while Mike drove.
We decided to "make a loop of the day" and came back through Talequah OK... (neither of us had seen Talequah yet)
We stopped at blockbuster on the way home and picked up "Taken" and "Valkyrie"... when they were over we crashed and slept like logs!

I like to share a couple pics through out the season showing off my greens ... a lot of which I always attempt to start with seed... whatever does not make it, I fill with plants and flowers... I try to find on sale :)

Here's the Vegetable Patch... small this year... it'll grow

Here's one of my pots

This one's probably my fav... the wave petunias were one of my seed babies

This is the first garden I started at this house... perennials obviously not from seed.. looks like it needs a little love...
I've done a lot in the front too... I'll share that later :) Most of it was spring bloomers

Concert in the Park

On Tuesday we packed a picnic dinner and went to a free concert at the RiverWalk in Tulsa/Jenks Laura, Simeon and their new friend Julia.

Some great songs were played and sung by Kristy Nockels, her Husband and a new artist named Christian. We all discussed how thankful we are that we can still express praise to God publicly in this great nation!
