The Kitchen Witch Stages The Kitchen

would be ME!

I actually think Tom  might have
replaced the first letter of Witch
But-I'm not sure
as we moved our way from staging
the dining room into the kitchen.
After I had the kitchen staged 
for the showing I wouldn't let
Tom eat at the table...
Now you know WHY I am the

However, it does look NICE, doesn't it?
The solid cherry cabinets are in excellent shape.
Not a nick or a scratch on the countertops either-
This is looking out the patio doors to the back yard.
Dinette is on the right.
For some reason my camera was
NOT working right
it certainly could NOT have been the photographer's fault
Anyway, here you can see how the kitchen/dinette
leads into the family room
and ties into the alcove
between kitchen and dining room.
I'll have a few more pictures to show you 
in a day or so.
I told Tom if he doesn't 
I will send him a replacement.

Now, I ask you.
Who YOU gonna call to stage your kitchen?

your photo name

It does look good. I do like the way this house flows,
The last pic is scary, but I am going to be generous and say, perhaps she is very nice on the inside. (Her moustache could do with a little work though! Darn, I let myself down by being mean).

Cecilia said...

Yes, it looks great! The house has such potential! The last picture is hilarious, I'm rolling- lol

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Nicely done, Diana! Are they on the market already? I'm sure they will be getting lots of offers.

Melanie said...

The kitchen is lovely! You did a great job! Tom better be glad that YOU did the staging!

Nonnie said...

Your kitchen is Fabulous! Dark cabinets are my favorite.
That last pic made me laugh out loud!!! Reminds me of a temp we had once about 40 years ago. She was so intimidating that when she asked if I had a light I said, sure ... need a cigarette, too?

Busy Bee Suz said...

I'm going to call YOU because that man-lady scared the bejesus out of me! Great job!

Shirley said...

Good Morning Diana, I imagine it is hard on Tom seeing things go. It a man thing he would never admit it. I chuckle when I saw your replacement. You have done a beautiful job. The home is so inviting and I hope it sells quickly when they list it. Have a wonderful day. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

The kitchen looks wonderful, sans Tom until sold!

Ruth Kelly said...

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

Diana, it's looking good. Tom is just where he needs to be: wanting to mess up something you've just cleaned. That last pic should scare him into submission!! Good job and Happy Weekend..Judy

Tootie said...

VERY nice! :)

farmhouse-story said...

The Polka Dot Closet said...

If Tom knows whats good for him...He will pick YOU!! LOL


Donna said...

You did a great job staging the kitchen, Diana. I didn't know that you had grown your hair out and had become a brunette!!!!:)

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Nothing warms my heart like clean, clear counters! Good job on that for sure. Wishing you a happy (and restful) weekend!

Patty Patterson said...

If it's up to me, I'll never move - so staging won't be necessary. :-) But if my husband gets his way and we move out into the boonies somewhere, you can come make our house presentable so it will sell. LOL

Debbiedoos said...

Ummm yes, I think it is a no brainer you need to be the kitchen witch:)

Red Rose Alley said...

You crack me up, girl friend. Her kitchen cabinets and countertops are in very good condition. I love the dark wood. Diana, I didn't know that your anniversary was the same day as mine! I will be back tomorrow to send you warm wishes.


RURAL said...

Oh my goodness, I think he definitely would prefer you...snort.


Savannah Granny said...

Diana, The kitchen is extremely nice. Love the cabinets.
Darling, you are officially signed up to stage my kitchen. Don't you dare let that b/witch near me!
Ya Hear!
xoxo Ginger

Merlesworld said...

I wouldn't argue with the lady with a mow, she could tell me black was white and I would agree.
I like the cupboards, I glad you din't go with white everyone is these days and I am a bit sick of it my kitchen cupboards are navy blue but I'm so not in vogue.

Maria Elena said...

Nice work, Diana! It looks wonderful!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

The kitchen looks great...Diana..."Samantha" has nothing on you....hey, you do look a bit like "Samantha"...and you worked your magic!!...And tell Tom that I did not spy a broom anywhere!!

Chatty Crone said...


Looks great.

An Oasis in the Desert said...

Oh my, I do hope Tom made the right choice -- that's a scary one!

camp and cottage living said...

Oh my goodness, he/she is pretty spooky.
I'd stick with you any day.
Nice job, btw.

Nellie said...

I'll choose you for any staging that occurs here, Diana. xo Nellie

Tete said...

How did I miss this one? Love the kitchen and the cabinets, but that lost photo is scary.
Girl, if you would just stand still when you are taking photos instead of jumping around, they would be better.
Put that thing on auto focus and let it do the work.

Laura said...

eeek!!! that is a darn sexy wo/man??.......;)

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

OH, I think we know the answer to that! Your cabinets are gorgeous wood and I love the open feeling to the house. Would that lady in the last picture be there for just the staging or would he have her full time?
