The one good thing happening in Vanessa’s kitchen was her sassy little window valance, but you couldn’t even tell, because it was being swallowed whole by the ancientness of everything else around it. It’s so very vintagey, in fact, that it looks like this picture was snapped back in 1979. Or with some hip Instagram filter, I can never tell anymore. Seriously people!! Is that a picture of yourself at age eight, or is it a picture of your eight-year-old child? Is that a Red Ryder wagon from your childhood, or one you bought yesterday at Costco? I can’t tell the difference!!! AND WHY SO MANY PICTURES OF FOOD? AND FEET?!?! WHY?
I’m sorry. As you can see, Instagram and I aren’t fast friends. Let’s get back on track to Vanessa’s sweet kitchen makeover that she and her family did entirely themselves. Looks completely fresh and fabulous, and yes, filter-free. Check out the whole story on her blog Make Yourself Happy.
