Kitchen before and afters!

Argg!! Since blogger decides to put your uploaded pictures ramdomly I give you in reverse order the before and after.

My Kitchen as it looks NOW!
This is my favourite part of the cabinets. See my cute little cupboard dad made for me. It holds all my plates, room for a funky teapot on the top shelf and the drawers on the bottom actually pull out as one but are 3 seperate compartments.
You'll notice we still need to put a backsplash in. We were thinking tiles but I haven't seen anything that I like yet. Then I was thinking to just paint it like the rest of the kitchen. Anyone have any suggestions??
The kickboard along the bottom of the cupboards is also missing at the moment as well as a new window sill and I'm thinking about changing the lights some time.


This picture was taken after out offer was accepted and we brought both sets of parents to see the house. I didn't realize she has soo many things all over the place. Just wait till I do before's and afters of the basement lol
So there you have it! My wonderful improved kitchen!

::cheering:: Tiles! Tiles! Just keep looking until you find the tiles that say "Take me home!"

Nice - just so nice. I'm sure you must love it. :)

I like your kitchen. So much simpler, but that is great. Did you keep the flooring? No suggestions on a back splash I am afraid, I am trying to choose paint for my bedroom - who knew there were so many shades of beige!

It looks great!! How happy it must make you! :)

Tile backsplash.

Becky said...

It looks fabulous!

Amy said...

looks great. I'd do paint for back splash. If you're like me there's always so much on the counter you'd miss out seeing the tile you worked so hard on!

Wow!! Fab! Congratulations! Yeah, definitely tiles. We did a kitchen once where we put small tiles as the backsplash. I don't know what they're called, but they are glued together on the edges to make one flexible big tiles. They're good because the small tiles can easily be cut out to around outlets, etc.
