Whites in the Kitchen

Happy Friday friends!

Today I am officially done with my finals, so I'm hoping to finish up some loose ends regarding some home projects before I start again for the Fall Semester {which is much sooner rather than later}.

But thought I'd share two sneak peek pics of our newly painted kitchen cabinets.

If you recall, this was an ongoing {off & on} project that I started late last Fall...but wasn't completely finished until last month.

There is still some "tweaking" that needs to get done in our kitchen, so until it's all done, these two pics will do for now. ;)

Here are photos of part of the upper & lower cabinets. Yes, those are brushed nickel pulls paired with vintage inspired glass knobs!

We are going to install white subway tiles for the backsplash, amongst a few other minor details that need to be completed.

But I am really loving the white cabinets so far! It really opens up our tiny cozy kitchen! ;)

Anyway, before I end this brief post thought I'd leave you with a photo of a cake that I made for my son's 13th birthday a few years ago. ;)

He will be turning 16 really soon... **sigh** They grow up way too fast. :(

I came across this while organizing my files and it really put me in a "baking mood!" :)

This is a simple triple layer, classic genoise cake with pastry cream & fresh strawberry filling with homemade whipped cream topping because he requested "something strawberry" {as he puts it}.

What will you be doing this weekend? I'll probably be in the kitchen baking something sweet, because I can never resist! :)

Thank you once again for taking the time to visit my page and/or leaving me a comment, I always truly appreciate it!

Take care everyone and have a wonderful day!
