I want to say “thank you” to Kim from Curtain Queen Creates for featuring My Kentucky Living on her blog during this blog tour.
We did a mini renovation on the kitchen after we moved in. We added black pearl granite countertops and backsplash, and added a new refrigerator and range. I brought the drapes from the old house...and find that they work very well in the new house.
The Master Suite...
I also brought these master bedroom drapes with me. I had the bedroom painted to match the fabric. Hearts of Palm, by Sherwin Williams if you like the color. The large light fixture (below) is something we purchased and had installed just before we moved.

Now that I have given you a quick home tour...
I will answer the questions that each of us has and
this will let you get to know a little more about me,
and my story.
Last week's project was having new marble tile installed in our hall/guest bathroom..and there was a hitch. Isn't there always some kind of hitch in home projects. The company sent enough marble tile...but there was a problem the boxes of marble did not all match. Some boxes had a white shade of marble, while the other boxes for the job had a grey marble. Hmmm. The installer called the company. I think he was scratching his head too! Like...how does this happen. The matching shade of tile was on its way pronto. Just an example of how things go with redoing things in a house.
the house after moving in. Almost every light fixture, and all faucets, have been changed! My plan was to turn this builder house into more of a custom home.
