So one of my close friends here in Huntsville just had their kitchen redone and it is b-e-a-utiful! We were all commenting how much the under the cabinet lights really brighten up the kitchen.
Of course I came home and began to dream of how I could recreate some of the same effects in our kitchen, that did not include painting the cabinets white…because Hubby would kill me.
I mentioned to Hubby the under cabinet lights and how cave-like our countertop is to work on. Seriously, its like trying to chop veggies in a dark room. (Okay thats a little dramatic, but it is for-really un-lit under there.)
I flippantly said, “That would be such a fun surprise to come home to one day…” and then thought nothing of it again.
Last Sunday I left the house around 1:30 to go to a baby shower and when I came home at 4:30, low and behold, look what I found:
Do you see it? DO YOU?! Glorious light illuminating my counter top!
Do you also see how I didn’t take the dirty dished out of the sink to take the picture? Well the dishwasher was full of clean dishes…and I wasn’t going to take all the clean dishes out just to put the dirty ones in, just so I could take a picture of my counter top. Just keeping it real, people. 🙂
My hubby is super sweet! He did an incredible job putting in those lights so extremely fast, all so that he could surprise me with them. I love him.
Now hear me, under the cabinet lights may seem completely un-post-worthy to you, but for those of you who have tried to work in a poorly lit area, you know the frustration that comes with it. These lights are an incredible blessing to me. The kitchen really is my work space! And I am very thankful for my new gift 🙂
Now, with the Big Bird Yellow Walls highlighted with this new lighting…I may have to paint this kitchen.
