I will warn you that you may be a bit underwhelmed by our kitchen mini-makeover. Let's just say that we gave our kitchen a few botox injections instead of a full face life. You know what I'm sayin'?
In its original state, our kitchen screamed BLAH. It was a horrible combination of cream/white/yellow. I especially hated the white Formica countertops. Hated. Them. So with some help from our trusted handyman (not the husbo), we upgraded to classic butcher block countertops (courtesy of Ikea)...
We opted to seal them with a product called Waterlox to make them extra durable. We also invested in a new electric range hood. The original one was crusty, rusty and just plain gross. Oh, and that vintage brown eggs sign is courtesy of my parents. They had that in their kitchen in our childhood home. Love it! And check out that awesome curtain that was custom made by my talented Mom. THANKS MOM!
We had our 1960's metal cabinet doors (don't be jealous!)freshly painted white. Ahhh.
The new wall color is light gray. It's Martha Stewart's "cumulus cloud" (we chose to have the color matched in Benjamin Moore paint - per our handyman's suggestion). The ceiling and all the trim were also freshly painted. I can't stop staring, can you? Ha.
Yup, that's it folks. What do you think?
So much better than the BLAH before, right?!
