New Home Reveal - Project 3

Yesterday, I went and visited my brother in MN. I had a great time (went outlet shopping), but it made me fall a little behind on my blog! Today I will feature my kitchen. While I have done some work, it was already in pretty good shape.

Kitchen Tasks Completed:
-Wiped down all dirty cupboards (they were covered with dirt and things I don't even want to know after not being used for almost 3 years)
-Fixed leaky refridgerator (saved us buying a new one for $800)
-Painted the mustard looking walls
-Added new kitchen table
-Hung green curtains on sliding glass door (did you know it costs $1,000 to buy a decent blind for the sliding glass door????)

Before picture... I wish you could have seen how dirty the cabinets were!!

Here I am starting the unpacking!

Better view of walls before the painting.

Some after pictures: I ordered my stools from - love them!

Of course Bailey has a special spot.

We love the 2-sided fireplace. I am still working on finding the right pieces for the cubby! This possibly calls for a trip to Pier 1 soon. :)

The island has granite counters - I am in love!

And my favorite kitchen appliance - my YELLOW mixer!! (You can also see the backsplash!!)

All in all, we just needed to clean it up in the kitchen and paint. I love my kitchen! It's the perfect size for us.

On a side note: Our backyard fence is making progress! Have a great day!!

I am participating in:
