Hey good lookin'... watcha got cookin'?

 Well I have to say I have a pretty "good lookin'" kitchen! The project is about 80% completed. There are just a few more things I would like to do... for example, the old counter tops went up on the wall and the new counter tops don't, so I have to repaint some of the walls (I primed tonight so you can see the paint tape- not attractive, I know). I also would like to add a cute roman shade to the window and replace the carport door, as well as finish the baseboard around the kitchen... but with all of that being said.. i think it is turning out pretty good!

Let's rewind to last week (yes, that is just 3 months ago.. NOT 1961 ;))
This is what the kitchen looked like when I bought the house... blue wallpaper and wood panels! 
Anyone feel like a fresh avocado? again that blue wall paper!
This was just last week... again.. NOT 1961 (but I almost fooled you, didn't I?)
Wallpaper off... still a lot of work to do!

i like the paint color... still needs some work
new appliances, new counter tops and new floor!!! Still have to fix the wall and paint.. but that will happen soon enough
Love the Spanish Gold counter top!

Lightening isn't the best.. but another view.. a clean fridge that DOESN'T freeze the food on the top shelf!

My coffee maker will look great in that corner!

Just needs a new door and a cute roman shade for the window!
Well, I haven't cooked anything in the kitchen yet-- wanted to make sure the dishwasher, stove, sink all worked :) Can't wait to grocery shopping and cook something delicious!


  1. Umm...this looks SO good! And when the heck did you change your blog header??? That looks so good too!
    LOVE it all! ;)
