Kitchen Progress

When we first moved in our kitchen was pretty.... average. It has a lot of room... but overall kind of boring.... and it just felt generic to me.

So even though the kitchen is not finished yet... I thought I would share some progress pictures of what has been done so far.

The kitchen cabinets have been painted white.
Bought stainless steel appliances
Updated all light fixtures (but one... still looking for the right one for that spot)
added crown moulding to the top of the cabinets
painted the walls blue
painted the pantry door with chalkboard paint
Redid the kitchen table and chairs.
opened up a few cabinets and painted the backs of those cabinets blue
bought a circular rug for under the kitchen table

 So here are a few in the middle of the kitchen rennovation photos..
Just remember... these are in progress still. Not quite finished...

Still on the ridiculous to do list

Put in wood floors to match the living room
add beadboard to the breakfast bar - and maybe paint Grey?
add corbels to the kitchen cabinets
put in a backspash
Get bar stools
replace that "boob" light that is left in the kitchen
Bamboo blinds for the window
empty wall next to kitchen table - fill with open shelving
french doors for the patio
paint all trim white
replace the sink and faucet
replace wire shelving in pantry with wood shelving

so there is still a long ways to go.

But what do you think so far?
The before picture compared to where it is now... makes me happy.  I love the look of a white kitchen :) and the crown moulding on the cabinets... makes me smile. I love it.

Up next... I believe will be the floors...


  1. the transformation is awesome!! It really looks great.

  2. Love it! I love the personality of your in progress kitchen re-do. We are redoing our kitchen (along with the rest of our house) too.
