Here is what it looked like when we first moved in. I'm sure many of you are going to say, but it's so lovely! Why would you ever want to get rid of that beautiful blue kitchen? But, here's the deal. I don't do blue. I can't feel happy in a blue room. I've never been able to, and never will. So it really did have to go, or I wouldn't want to ever go in my kitchen!
And here it is now! I've gradually added things for the walls here and there, and I really love my kitchen. I will eventually replace the countertops (or maybe even paint them...I've seen people do cool things with painting the laminate). I love the red, and it makes me want to be in the kitchen. So that's what matters.
Also, you can get a glimpse of my dining room, and what I've done to the walls....pictures will come soon enough.
Or maybe next year. :)
