It’s been a while since my last post, but don’t worry… that doesn’t mean we haven’t been knee-deep in projects! We’ve built a custom desk and two custom filing cabinets, I’ve painted a chair, we’ve re-landscaped our back yard, rearranged our living and family rooms, added some awesome wall art in the house, and added some much-needed furniture to the back yard! Whew… clearly, I need to get back to blogging!
But, lately… I’ve been day-dreaming about redoing our kitchen! There’s nothing particularly terrible or offensive about it. It just simply is NOT my thing.
You see, my good friend Jenn over at A Home In The Making, recently redid her kitchen and it turned out absolutely dreamy! From the copper countertops, to the vintage-inspired white cabinets, to the killer painted floors and dazzling pendant lights… I’m IN LOVE! Really, seriously, she just needs to drop kick her Oregon kitchen on down to California and have in land smack in my house!!!
Oh… and then the backsplash! Oh. My. Goodness. Enough… I can’t take it now!
And, beyond sheer kitchen-envy, the hubs and I really need something a bit more practical! We need a kitchen with more counter space since we both cook, more functional storage, and a built-in bar. We also hate our granite- it was super poorly installed, doesn’t go with our style at all, and has chips in it from the previous owners beating it up! And the honey oak cabinets are just not our thing at all. We’d love some warm mocha cabinets or white, shaker style cabinets.
Oh, and the list goes on and on… sparkly seeded glass pendant lights would be nice, as well as some sparkly knobs and pulls to adorn the cabinetry. And, what about a bar stool makeover?!?!? Yes, I would love that!!!
For now, we’ve got lots of other projects dominating our sights, but when the time comes, we’ll have to hit Home Depot for all of their amazing kitchen renovation tips! Check out their video below to see what I mean:
