You can lean how I painted my kitchen back splash with chalkboard paint
on my DIY blog Condo Blues here.
And then the kitchen turned into this because I hate hand washing dishes.
Now I am normally a fix it before replacing it kind of gal, but a good sale and a gift card we got for Christmas (thanks Dad) had Husband and I smack dab in the middle of Sears paying for the rest of a Kenmore dishwasher with Turbozone - a super duper cleaning cycle that works on the icky dishes I am allergic to rinsing before loading into the dishwasher (so Husband says) because we hated the old dishwasher so much. Funny, because whenever we get a Sears card as a gift, we (me) end up buying tools with it. Other than my hand me down sewing machine, I haven't given Kenmore appliances a thought until now.
I might be more than a little excited about having a working dishwasher again.
We couldn't be happier with our Kenmore dishwasher and would consider replacing our stove and refrigerator with a Kenmore when the time comes. That's not going to happen anytime soon. Project Lacey is our priority and she gives kisses. New kitchens are nice but they don't give kisses.
Lacey is a cuddler too!

Disclosure: No one paid me or gave me fabulous cash, prizes, or discounted dishwashers to post about this contest. I had to pay for my dishwasher out of my own pocket. Lacey really likes to give kisses and sometimes licks the dishwasher when I am loading and unloading it. I like my dishwasher too, but not enough to kiss it like Lacey does.
