The Kitchen is
Here it was when we bought the house. Can you see the sheen on those cabinets? And that Waverly wall paper? That is some 80’s greatness I tell ya! (If you have a kitchen that still looks like this it’s ok. I just couldn’t live with it myself!)
I know. You are asking yourself, why did they buy this house again? It’s alright, we knew what we were in for. Or did we? Ok, maybe not but we were first time home buyers. We were suckers. I mean, who isn’t? (don’t tell me that you are not because I don’t want to hear it!). So yeah, those first renovations took a while and the love of my life even had to enlist help on the cabinet painting. It was a bigger job than him but… he’s a big enough man to admit it.
I will admit that it looks a lot better but we still have the floor (that someone must have grouted after they drank a couple of six packs) and the counter-tops that I lived with but despised deep down. And of course the lovely ceramic tile backsplash. I do have to give a little props to the backsplash though, since it sort of helped me choose colors the first time around and held up quite well. But, alas, it had to go.
So at the end of the day Thursday, when the new backsplash was complete I told Tim that the top color, above the chair railing in our breakfast nook, was no longer going to work with the new stuff. So you know what he did on Saturday? He painted it a new color that goes just wonderfully! (LOVE HIM!) It’s actually a color that we recently painted our dining room, his office, our entry way and the bar area in a our living room. I hope we like it! HA!
Ok, so without further ado here’s the finished product. With a bonus picture of the breakfast nook. And now we are in search for a new table possibly something in the “java” family would be nice. I will let you know if we find it… (this renovation thing never ends!)
P.S. I love the new Kitchen, can you tell?
