Hello!  I am so excited and so lucky to be here today on Beneath My Heart!

My name is Brittney and you can find me at 

I love decorating.  In fact, I often stay up for hours in bed dreaming about my next project.  If you know me well, you know that I am always up to something around my house, and my blog is a journal where you can see all my projects.  My favorite part about decorating is recreating a million dollar look for less! 

I am here today to share with you my most recent project . .

Meet my old kitchen island:

Meet my NEW kitchen island:

Here you can take a peek at how the process went down:

All I did was trim out the ends (home depot $20), paint everything white (Sherwin Williams white duck), add new drawer pulls ($Lowes 4 each), add corbels for a bar addition, and then add the walnut butcher block stained in midnight (greyloch cabinets $460).  I wish it took as long as it sounds.  A project that takes patience but well worth it!

Here is a photo that gives me inspiration in many ways…white cabinets, black board paint in creative places, an amazing chandelier, and of course the large EAT letters. 

Here is how I created the word art for only $15.

I hope you were inspired today with a few of my suitebliss creations.

Thank you, Brittney!

  1. That’s nice!

    It’s funny that she mentions the “Million dollar look for less”. Just last night I was telling my Mother -in-law about your house you just sold Traci, and how gorgeous you had decorated it. And I believe I used words similar to this, “that your house looked like you spent a million bucks on it, but having read all your posts, you did it on the cheap”!

    I love all you thrifty decorating gals in blogland!

  2. The island looks “Amazing”, I do not know if you have plans to do all the kitchen cabinets or not, but it would look great if you did them all.
