I'm ready to let you all in on my secret................

Everyone was having so much fun trying to figure out my secret that I almost don't want to tell you what it is now. I said almost!

Of course I want to tell you - I am so excited about it. Well here it is:

And in case you don't know what you are looking at, check out the before pics...

And ta-dah: (sound the music!)

And last but certainly not least a huge, gi-normous, gargantuan thank you thank you thank you to Tammy who helped me pack up the old and set up the new and kept my secret for me! (Sorry I made you lie but it was all for a good cause!!) :)

This yo momma speaking. It was a surprise but I had kind of thought this might be it then thought "nah" we'd have heard about. Good dinner at the initiation of it today! It's another WOW!!!

Sarah said...

It looks great!! I love the floor and it almost looks like we might have the same countertop?! Is it River Gemstone?

That's a great secret, although I am disappointed you're not coming to WI!

How Exciting!! Enjoy!

Becky Z said...

Sarah - my laminate is Milano Russo. and whose to say that i'm not coming to WI?? ;-) You never know when i just might show up!! :)

Can't wait to see more pictures of your new house!

Ruthie said...

I guessed right!!! But that last clue you gave me when we talked helped the most!! It is so pretty and nice and pretty and you and pretty and warm and pretty. But I don't know if I like it yet or not : P I can't wait to come and see it and help load the dishwasher. (and no people that does not mean I am going to get Becky loopy on cough medicine). Congrats!!

Tammy Z said...

Thank goodness the pressure to keep this secret is gone...it was starting to become a heavy burden!! No, actually, it was kinda fun...i think i was just as excited as Becky to watch the progress!!

To all you relatives and friends away out there ~~ the pictures do not do it justice. The walls are an apricot type color. Now Becky can correct me if I named it wrong! That island made it comfortable for 4+ people to help Becky with dinner today. Very much fun.

Brian said...

Mom,

What color are the apricots where you live? Her walls used to be orange, but not anymore.

Wow! and here I thought Becky's secret was she knew where bread came from!! It does look nice. I know the exciting feeling of a remodeled kitchen! Enjoy! Aunt Minnie
Sorry I caused so much confussion (I did say I would apologize!) but it was fun while it lasted!

Becky Z said...

Auntie Minnie - i thought it was so funny that you said you knew what my secret was because it threw everyone else off and made for some good laughs! :)

farmermarvswife said...

Yes, it did seem to throw everyone off and I didn't really intend to do that and then I felt kind of bad because I thought 'oh dear, what have I done'. But like Sarah says - you can still come to Wisconsin! Aunt Minnie
P.S. Look forward to convention this week!

Helen said...

and I was so close!

Mom said...

Hey Brian ~~ that color paint is sometimes called apricot although they are more like her original color. It reminds me of apricot yogurt or a smoothie. Now everyone will be hungry but it is a kitchen!! Becky, what is the color called?

Becky Z said...

mom - the paint is "strata light". not that that helps any in describing it!

Ruthie said...

Good grief!!! Strata like the sky and light like the sun - you know like a light orangish color. Hope this helps anyone who is cornfused!!

Shaun said...

Did you do all the work yourself? BTW the walls look brownish to me.

Becky Z said...

well shaun - i did all the HARD work: picking everything out and then having to pay for it! :) but i did hire someone to do it for me - i'm not quite that ambitious! plus i'd probably have messed it up!

the pics don't really show the paint very well at all. it's not quite brown but not quite orange either - somewhere in the middle!

theo said...

I don't understand why you didn't keep the Denver Bronco orange and blue...I guess the retro bronco colors as I think they are more navy now...

Becky Z said...

theo - football season was over so i had to get rid of the colors! ;)
