Our Kitchen Update

It’s been a while since I have posted any progress on our house. Like all of you, things have been so busy. Good busy, but we are still trying to unpack boxes and find a place to put everything. It’s all of the little odds and ends that kill me, but we are finally getting to the point where I feel like this is our home. One that I love to come home to and know that it is ours. We are still in the process of finishing our kitchen, but I wanted to show you our progress so far and the paint colors I chose.

Here are the before pics. Oak cabinets, wallpaper, linoleum flooring, super old appliances (funny side note- I used to babysit in this house and can remember cooking mac n’ cheese on that stove, so weird!) and countertops from the 1970’s.

Here are the BEFORES: (I was so excited to get those cabinets down I forgot to take pictures beforehand!)

This is what we have accomplished so far:

*Painted the kitchen cabinets White Dove by Benjamin Moore (more on that later)

*Replaced all of the hardware on the cabinets, brushed nickel

*New appliances from Lowe’s

*My husband installed the hardwood floors

*We removed the wallpaper and retextured one wall because of all the gunk we couldn’t get off

*We replaced the light above the sink

*We painted the walls Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore

Our projects we still have left to do:

*Replace the countertops, I need to make my decision this weekend, then they should take 3-4 weeks after that. Yay!

*Paint the ceiling. It needs a fresh coat of paint to cover up a couple of stains and brighten things up.

*Take out the fluorescent light and replace it

*Install the backsplash

*Replace the electrical outlets

*Create a little office area for my computer and paperwork

*Curtains and decorations

 In the meantime we have been doing projects in other rooms of our house which I will continue to show you.

 For other updates we have made, see here. It’s a work in progress, but so fun to the think of the end potential. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
