First house decorating success–the kitchen is DONE! Mostly at least, I’m still looking for a new ceiling light and we plan to add some custom shelves into a corner, but all the major work is done!
Remember the kitchen before we moved in?
Yeah… a little blah, a little drab, and then there’s that funky red radiator.
Also crappy faucet, ugly florescent bulb, and some pretty nasty counter tops. Oh, and like next to no storage and work space.
Not anymore! Now we have contrast, brightness, and a photo-bombing cat.
Also storage, extra work space and a functioned mud room/shoe dumping ground.
There’s still finishing work to be done–artwork and window treatments along with the lighting and shelves I mentioned before–but the paint and counter revamp have made a HUGE difference. The eagle-eyed among you may also have caught that we flipped the hinge side on the fridge. This is, in theory, a pretty easy job but was made slightly annoying since our fridge is rather old so things did not unscrew well and the plastic caps that cover the unused holes just sort of crumbled when we tried to pull them out. Having your fridge door swing so it opens into your work area instead of cutting off your work area is extremely useful though.
