Face Lift or New Face??

We bought our Queen Creek home back in June of 2008, and have put in a lot of work to get it to where we are starting to really like it. We are adding our own personality to all the decor, and that is what makes a home a home. Not exactly what a magazine or television show tells you what you should do, but what YOU want to do to make it YOUR home!
  That said, our kitchen counters have been the most irritating part of our kitchen. Who ever thought that white counters looks good was thinking something completely different than I was. I kept thinking what could we do with them. Ok.. lets do granite? Hmm.. Too expensive to put into a house that we wont stay in forever. Anything we thought of seemed to come along with a big price tag. So the creative mind started turning the wheels.
Here are the before and afters and Ill post how I did them soon. They were so easy but took a little patience.

First Blog of Sweet Passions

Hey Everyone!
  I thank you in advance for visiting my new blog. It means so much to share all that I do with you all! I love to create, refinish, revamp and decorate, so I thought with all the projects I do around the house (which there is always something going on, sometimes too many) I would share all the ideas. I am a stay at home mom while going to nursing school and with that said, the money I spend on projects needs to be minimal, so I try to do everything as cheap as possible, but as classy as possible. Sometimes it turns out awesome, and other times I find that I need to do better (you will see those problems too! EEK!).  But you will be prepared for what NOT to do on those occasions! I hope you all follow along in this journey. I hope for this to reach many people out there! So come along and join in.
