Kitchen Details and A Sneak Peek (Plus My Blogger Girl Crush)

 I adore Debbie (of Debbie-Debbidedoos) for a multitude of reasons. First, because she hosts this awesome Copycat Magazine Challenge that I love.  It is so fun to get inspired and make it happen.**
**keep reading for more about this and the teaser photo!

But even more importantly, I love how big of a heart she has and how wonderful she is at helping all us newbie bloggers get a foothold in bloggyland.  She hosts a newbie link party every Monday (for bloggers with less than 100 followers) which I used to join regularly until my follower count got too high (thanks for that by the way.. I love you all!! *Smooches*)
She also features a newbie blogger in the Newbie Spotlight of the Week.
Talk about Newbie LOVE!  Her blog was one of the places I felt most welcome when I first started putting myself out there.  

Anyhoo.. now that I have embarassed myelf by fawing over my girl-crush, it is time to get back to the Copycat Challenge.  This go round, the challenge included copying either a magazine photo OR a fellow blogger.

Sooo...  I decided to copy, who else? DEBBIE!  (I told ya' she is my girl crush!) 
She actually used this mini-project as an example of the challenge.  She decorated the front panel of her sink base with a little decorative thing-a-ma-bob

and then Kathy (of Creative Home Expressions) copied her..

And now I am copying them both!  (Shhh.. no calling me a suck up!)  

You know how I am in the middle of a big kitchen makeover? Well..  these images may give a little of it away.. but not much!    First I started with a freshly painted plain sink base cabinet front:
 
Then I found this little guy at Lowe's for $3.
 Unlike Debbie who used double stick tape, and Kathy that used quake putty, I went for a more permanent solution of liquid nails (GO BIG OR GO HOME!)
 I applied it to the cabinet and then I used caulk to seal the edges so you couldn't see a gap behind it:
Then I painted that sucker to match the cabinets and here is what I ended up with:
Cute no?   Especially considering that less than 48 hours ago it looked like this:
