Kitchen Make Over
Some of you may remember when I posted about "Project Cook". It was more of creative way to share with you that I was going to give my kitchen a make-over. Well... it's finally finished. I am not 100% satisfied with the outcome, but it will most definitely do for the time being.
Our original plan for the make-over included...
- New paint color
- New cabinet color
- Cabinet Hardware
- New Floors
- New Countertops
- and a few pieces of new decor
In the end we got everything except the new countertops and this amazing little console table that I wanted to put in there. I guess you get what you get.
[The colors in the kitchen were Orange & Green. All of the stuff on top of the cabinets had been thrown up there over the years when I had no other place to put them].
[The colors are now Brown, White and Sage. The "stuff" on the top has been organized].
[Pretty Self Explanatory- or at least I think so]
[Clean, Simple and open]
[ I felt like I needed something about the stove and I found this little sign for 50% off at hobby Lobby. Cost: $7
I bought a package of towels at Ross for $4 and tied them with ribbon that I had in my collection].
[I bought these cute little containers at Hobby Lobby for 50% off as well].
Cost for both: $11
[I made the curtains after seeing them HERE & I bought and installed a new light fixture that hangs over the sink].
[I got this Bowl at Goodwill for $2 and the moss at Pier 1 for $1]
[I recovered the Valance that I had in the attic ... it came with the house when we bought it. Cost: $6.99
I got new place mats from Ikea. Cost: $1.99 each.
The mirror was given to me from my mother in law (Free) & and stencil I order on Etsy for $23.
NOTE: I will be posting a separate post about the Mirror tomorrow with more information and the Etsy Details.
[I bought the cross at Ross for $3 and spray painted it white]
[Cabinet Pulls. Nothing Fancy]
[Drawer Pulls. Total Cost for ALL hardware: $90 ]
[I saw this craft here & and I just had to make it for the Kitchen]
All in all I did what I could (all by myself might I add) while Baby K was sleeping. That included all of the trips to the store, the crafts along with the paint & install. During the process we made friends with Paul over at Home Depot, Marley over at Goodwill and a few others at random places.
Also, it turns out I will not get to share our other Big News with you [at least for another month or so unless things change]. Doesn't it always happen that way?? Apparently we have 99.9% of the Big News, but we have to wait until we have the full 100% to share. And for those of you that have asked... it does not involve adoption. Now if that doesn't make it more interesting...
