We have come up with a few ideas for our little crap shack. We have to start from scratch in the kitchen, so we can do anything we want. The idea is to have the base cabinets be a high gloss granny smith apple green. The wall cabinets will probably be white, after all you don't want too much green in a kitchen. There will be a butcher block countertop. Ikea has some great prices on wood countertops! The idea for the floor is white tile, with a blue/green glass tile border that will match the backsplash. Although behind the stove I have found this awesome lucite panels in bright colors so there would be a green panel behind the stove. It should be lovely, if we get it all done. Right now the front porch has those wrought iron handrails and posts. They are painted and I just don't like how it looks. We will eventually replace them with wooden posts and handrails. There is a bar that has given us an idea for the posts. If we put lighting inside the posts and do similar cutouts, it should give the look of porch lanterns. I think it could be a real neat effect.

This blog is going to change. Why? Because we were never able to buy the house on Sasser, as far as I know it is still in the foreclosure process. All is not lost! We were able to find a house, and closed on it this past Friday. It's a foreclosure, and has been vacant for at least a year. In the first week, we have already begun the demo process. More to come!
