This even surprises me, and I'm the one responsible or it! This is how the kitchen looked when we moved in May of 2004, and much hadn't changed until recently. I still can't believe we've been in this house for almost seven years. Time flies!
What a sad looking kitchen. =(
Excuse the mess on the counter, this was before I started staging my photos, and became so OCD. OCD is a silent illness, and it totally snuck up on me after I had my first child, now there's no going back. I was such a minimalist in the early days too. I guess I knew deep down the more stuff I had the more to clean!
I just took these pictures this morning! I'm so over being a minimalist, I almost qualify as a hoarder! (That's very clean and organized!)
Doesn't even look like the same kitchen. What do you think about an island in the center? I've been thinking I really want one, not sure if that would be too much? Handy man is gonna give me a quote on a custom job, that is mobile. I'm designing, he's building, then I'll be painting. We work really well together. One of these days I will build stuff myself, but I don't have any tools. Beefcake is a mechanic not a woodworker.
I'm working on some signs to replace the ones under the cabinet. I want some thing with a country feel. I never would have thought in zillion years that I would have a country kitchen. I wish I could gut this one and do a total remodel, but this is not the forever home. We hope to rent this place out and move, so the next house I will get my farm house sink, butcher block counters with subway tile back splash and bead board cabinets! I know that's a hefty list. Girls gotta dream! Really that's just part of the dream for the next kitchen, but that's a post all it's own!
I am considering changing the can light over the sink to a mason jar chandelier. That is affordable, and I can take it with me when/if we rent/move. Yes English is my first language! lol
I just love my kitchen now, it has such a homey feel. Thanks for checking it out! Would love to have any feed back you guys have! xx
