It’s Thankful Thursday hosted by Brian of Brian’s Home. He wants us to post what we’re thankful for.
I think it’s a good thing to do each week. Focus on the positive things in our lives.
Make sure you link up to the Blog Hop at Brian’s Home and get the code to put on your blog. Then visit all the participants.
I’m thankful that hubby and I are continuing on our quest to upgrade our home. Last year we replaced all the windows and got rid of the mini blinds and went with shutters. When we moved in 20 years ago styles were different. We have carpet downstairs and we don’t care for it anymore. Our kitchen countertops and sink have seen better days, so we went shopping.

The first photograph is the sink, faucet and drying rack we ordered. The sink will be in white, not black. The second shot is the new countertop and backsplash. The small piece is the color the sink will be. The last shot is the new flooring. No more carpet. The flooring and counter tops go wonderfully together and we have lots of dark cherry wood with our cabinets and book cases. This lighter color blends in with everything. We are happy. Now to get it installed.
What are you thankful for today?

All excellent choices. LOVE the flooring. What a fun project. I remember years ago redoing the kitchen. It was a mess but once it was done I was thrilled. Of course that was over 20 years ago so it could use a facelift now.
We can’t wait to get this installed. It will be hard with all the construction, but it will be worth it. 🙂
I love all of this but I really love that countertop. It’s really beautiful. Yay for upgrades! I’m thankful for rain today. 🙂 And, as always, you Sandee. Love you. <3
Me too. We worked hard to make all these colors blend. We did just that. Love you back. 🙂
How exciting! I love all of the new changes! We are thankful that the nasty heat and humidity have gone away – for now.
It’s cool here today, but it will heat up on Saturday. 🙂
Love it all! Mom is starting to slowly work on our house too. We are starting with new light fixtures in some of the rooms on the main floor, and some landscaping changes outside. It is not cheap to upgrade things, so we are doing in little by little. You will love the new kitchen once that is done!
It’s fun to plan and execute. We’re enjoying it very much. 🙂
We need to do this as well. Just stalling ha! Good choices.
It’s expensive, but it sure is wonderful to see the end results. 🙂
congrats on your update, we need one also… ours has been the same for 32 years and the 80’s are still living here. there will be much uproar from the installing part but will be gorgeous when completed. updates add to keep your home at top value if it had to sell. my hubby says balderdash and if it an’t broke don’t change it. alas, no update for me
Yes we know it’s going to be awful while they are taking the old away and put in the new, but it will be worth. 🙂
I love all your choices. My kitchen needs new countertop and cabinets at the very least. Probably not going to happen! Have a great upcoming weekend.
It’s a wonderful thing for us and we’re looking forward to the facelift. 🙂
Those are all fabulous choices and I’ll bet you’re excited for the new things. Thanks for joining our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
I am so excited for your upgrading project in your home. Wonderful and beautiful changes to your house. Looking forward to more posts on the new project.
I’ll post the end results when it’s done. 🙂
How exciting for you Sandee. Love the colour of the floor and the kitchen countertop too. Good luck with the project.
I know it will be wonderful when it’s done. Then we’ll be dusting for weeks. 🙂
It will be beautiful, just like you.
I love you.
Your loving husband.
Aw, thank you honey. Thank you for letting us do this too. I love you. 🙂
Wow- marvelous makeover in the works! Great choices and will be fun to see the final photos! Have a great day!
I’ll post the new look when it’s all done. You have a great day too. 🙂
How exciting it is to do makeovers! I love your choices! Happy Thursday!
We did the boat and now we’re doing our home. Happy Thursday, Eugenia. 🙂
Good for you! Are you planning to DIY or hire someone? Either way, I hope installation goes well. ~hugs~ Take care!
No Direct Appliance will be doing the work. We aren’t crafty at all. Hugs and you take care too. 🙂
We removed all the carpeting in our house when we moved in, refinished the hardwood floors, and have enjoyed them ever since.
Will never have carpeting again!
I’m so ready to see it go. We just can’t seem to keep it clean. 🙂
What fun and what super duper classic styles you have selected.
We really took our time making sure it will all blend together. 🙂
looks like it will be GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!! I have 3 wonderful drying racks made by Chef Curtis Stone that I ordered on HSN. They come in assorted colors and also function as trivets, baking racks etc…….they withstand heat up to 500 degrees F. (obviously you can move them around), I use one of them in the bathroom sink to keep Roary out of the sink (don’t want him licking cleaning products)…..we have Pergo floors (are yours Pergo or real hardwood?) We love it!! Yours is just beautiful! Use them in good health as they say. Today I am thankful that Roary is one!!! He’s outgrown at least some of his kitten craziness!
Happy 1st birthday to Roary.
We’re so excited for the new facelift. 🙂
Ooo love the choices! It’s great to be renovating various bits around the house, and some pretty big ones too like windows last year and now flooring. I’m not a big fan of carpet these days either. I’d love wooden or basic laminate flooring, which would be so much easier to keep clean and hygienic. Enjoy seeing the transformation! xx
Our home was looking tired in places so we decided to fix that. Next year it will all be outside. 🙂
That is a great idea as home just fills you with thankfuls every single day. Cant wait to see the finished projects
It does and it’s our castle. We need to take care of our castle. 🙂
Yoor new kitchen will be a wonderpurr place to fix noms. Evfurrything is so lovely and fwesh. I pwomise I will be right over to enjoy celebrashun noms when all is finished. But not before cuz I can’t stand chaos. Love, Dori
You’re welcome to come over anytime. 🙂
We felines aren’t too interested in decorating but The Human says, “nice!”
Purrs & Head Bonks,
Your human is smart. We like our home to be nice. 🙂
Your home is going to look so beautiful. I hope you will share photos when it’s all done!
It sure is. I’ll post the new look when they are done and we get all the dusting done. 🙂
Oh how exciting for you ~ a ‘make over’ that sounds wonderful and looks awesome ~ Happy for you both ~
Love and hugs to you both ~ Xo

I’m hoping it will be even more beautiful than I think it will. It was such fun. 🙂
You have great taste, I like all your choices. XO
Thank you so much, Ellen. 🙂
That’s a gorgeous combination, good picks all!
Thank you so much. We took extra care to make sure everything would compliment each other. 🙂
Beautiful selections based on the samples. We will NEED fuller pics when the job is done, or better yet, in progress shots. 😉
Okay. Before and after too. 🙂
I too am working on the house, but it is pretty much a solitary endeavour. The house was built in 1956 and as I am in a very rural area, the kitchen cupboards are made of plywood and built into the walls. To replace them, I would have to knock everything back to the studs. That would mean I would have to do ALL the electrical to the house and there would be asbestos mitigation involved-too expensive. So I am repainting. The cupboards have to be carefully sanded as the original paint was lead based. Good thing Covid has made getting the right masks, that plus a terrific orbital sander with a special catch bag. It is taking time. (The kitchen was the only room NOT painted the last time I painted the house, so it will take the longest). Being old, I am moving slow and I am hoping to be done by the fall. Then onto the rest of the house. I LOVE your sink counter top and the wood!
Thanks so very much for commenting and sending Marv chin skritches, I always make sure that he gets them! I hope you have a marvellous day!
We are having the work done. We aren’t crafty at all. Love to see your finished cabinets. Love to all and especially Marv. 🙂
What excellent choices!!! It will be beautiful when it is done. Our peeps had the kitchen and bathrooms updated over the past few years. It is agony while the work is going on, but so nice to see when it is done.

We are planning meals and laundry right now. We know it will be most disruptive. 🙂
That combination is going to look beautiful! Our mom tore up one of the bathrooms and has most of the stuff waiting to renovate, but needs a plumber to do some things first. It’ll happen soon, probably.
We’re thankful that our blind senior kitty, Midnight, is doing really really well these days. Last year there were questionable kidney issues, but everything is under control now and she’s very healthy.
We worked hard to make sure everything would flow together. Needed the browns with the red tinges. We can’t wait for them to start. Yay on Midnight. Great news. 🙂
Thankful for a beautiful day for spring cleaning!
Spring cleaning is a good thing. 🙂
Hooray for updating!
We agree. Have a great vacation. 🙂
It looks like you are getting some major improvements being done.
Yes they are pretty major. Our home needed a facelift. It’s time. 🙂
Awesome! Have a great weekend, Sandee🤗💕
You have a great weekend too, Michelle. Hugs and love. 🙂
Wow, Sandee, everything is beautiful. I really, really like that countertop. Is it quartz? We redid our kitchen in 2009. I waited 25 years to redo it. It was ugly when we moved in, and I put up with it for 25 years. Getting someone to do the work definitely will be the hardest part! Please share photo when it is done. Purrs from Cooper Murphy and Sawyer and hugs from me, Janet
Soo pretty! I am excited for you. I hope you share pictures of the completed project!
I will do just that, Jen. I can’t wait for this project to be done. 🙂
My peeps don’t redecorate for new styles. The house is the early Doris Day style.
That was a good style. Ours are just looking bad so we’re updating to the current styles. I remember as a young adult going into an old persons home and being taken back 40-50 years. I don’t want to be that old person. I love you Kismet. 🙂
Oh, that’s so fun, and it’s going to be beautiful! I am longing for a new kitchen sink and countertop….hopefully we will get to do that soon. I hope you share completed pictures! What material is your countertop?
The countertops are quartz. It’s just a beautiful color too. I can’t wait. More smooches to Luke. 🙂
Wow…really nice kitchen choices! Looking forward to seeing the final installation. Best wishes for a problem free project.
We’re hoping a problem free project too. This company we’ve dealt with before and they are great. 🙂
It’s so helpful to having worked with a company before and feeling confident to do it again. Good luck making your space a beautiful reflection of yourselves. 😍
