Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop #120 & Deb's Cottage Kitchen

It's time for another awesome GUEST POST by Beach Farmgirl Deb of the blog Deborah Jean's Dandelion House. Enjoy!

Dear farmgirl friends far and wide! Welcome to the Farmgirl Friday Blog Hop # 120! 
 Is it just me or does this summer feel like it's flying by? I hope each of you are enjoying the lazy days of summer wherever you are.

 We've been back and forth from our little off -grid  BEACH cottage over the last couple of weeks and I've just about gotten the sand shaken out of everything and I'm almost caught up on laundry. 

I thought you might enjoy a little peak at our HUMBLE cottage kitchen with the newly painted wood floors! Here's a snippet of Max snoozing on his little rug by the door. 

See the BEFORE FLOOR under him?

With some zooming and cropping, here's the after! 

 After more than 20 years, we finally ( well, I guess it was mostly me in a fit of ugly floor disgust ) ripped up the torn, vinyl flooring that had seen better days. 

My hubby( bless his heart)  came in after me and cleaned up the mess I made and proceeded to paint the floor to match the rest of the cottage floors. Ah, that's better on so many levels!  The floor looks great, it's easier to clean and I can move on to obsessing about something different that needs doing! 
That shiny wooden counter top was a gift from my BIL last Christmas. He made it to replace another tired relic from the 70's or 80's. The reclaimed laminate counter-top had started to sag like old things are prone to do. Now it's good as new!

What's been happening in your farmgirl worlds? 

Time to link up for your weekly dose of farmgirl soulfood!
