Kitchen Spruce Up!

A few weekends ago one of the sons came over 
to help Mom & Dad with a project. 
Mom wanted to spruce the kitchen up a little bit 
with some new tile

This is before but after Dad had
 already taken the old back splash off

There is a rise behind the kitchen sink

Dad had to replace one piece of sheetrock

One of the granddaughters was a great helper

Ta Da!  

The finished tile!

Mom says it dresses up the kitchen

And looks great with her puggy paper towel holder

And the new tile behind the sink really shows off

 her  pug cookie jar,
 pug candy dish,
pug piggy bank,
pug mug
 and pug salt and pepper shakers! 

Sheeesh!  do ya think the lady like pugs?

We are the Pug Ranch Kids

  6. that was a super idea, your kitchen looks fab! but the best idea was to add pug-things... it is YOUR kitchen now...pawsome!

  7. very nice my dream is a 1950s ranch house but it will alas always be a dream as there are none in the nyc area that we could ever dream of affording and we need to stay here for work

  8. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh most lovely and for sure it does dress up the kitchen. We love the pt holder and the area behind the sink all dolled up with pugs
    Hugs madi your bfff

  9. We still have the kitchen counter that came with the house and it's over 30 years old! The reason for that is because Mom and Dad can never agree on what type to replace it with. So it just stays the same forever!

  10. Wow good job sprucing. When are you coming here
    Lily & Edward

  14. We LOVE that new look. The tile is beautiful - amazing what a little change can do to spruce things up. Spring is the time for all that work!

  15. Looks great and does spruce up the kitchen. Bet your mum loves it. We love all the pugs.

  16. We love the look of the new tile and all of the Puggie stuffs!

  17. A very professional job. A tip of the tail to all involved. We love all the pug flourishes but we enjoyed the paper towel holder most of all

  18. Love the new tiles and all those plugs. Why you could have every appliance running at the same time. Wish we had someone to come over to our house that was a handy man. We always have to hire someone and they end up being a Dingus. A dingus is NOT a stupid person, they just do stupid THINGS. Yep that is who we hire.
    Thanks for being a friend
