Yowza! Are we really here?! What the heck will I blog about after this? When last we were together we had the hilarity of the kitchen ticker tape parade and some lighting installation.
Now the kitchen is where it is at! Well, there is
forever stuff left to do, but I thought you'd like to see it just the same. Plus there are some places I'd like to hear your input.
Want to come in for a closer look? Here's a little tour:
(Here the pendants are turned off so you can see the pretty color)
What do you think of the open shelving?
What do you think of the globes? They were totally
copied from inspired by Meg over at Whatever. If you don't read it already, you should totally check out her blog--it's awesomesauce. I need more globes.
Here are the new cabinets.
The counter and my lovely faucet--oh and I grew those callas--how crazeeee is that--I can grow nothing! Hopefully, they keep growing--cross your tootsies!
What do you think? (of my stinker, er thinker?!)
Here are a few things I'm still mulling over:
--is there a better way to tie the old cabinets with the new?
maybe get the same hardware?
--I need to do more accessorizing. I'm just not a matchy-matchy dishes peep, but is it too cluttered?
Still on the wish list:
--apron front sink (oh how I lurve thee)
--slate or other Matte counters (ya know, like chem lab--I didn't like chemistry, not no way, no how! Maybe I should say like physics lab, love me some of that!)
--new appliances-not sure what kind-though I had a brief love affair with a red stove
--new coolio, maybe retro stools
A big bloggy shout-out to Edie at life in grace! Her kitchen was such great inspiration. Here's something funny, the kitchen matches my dishes! Check it out
The turquoises almost match! If you are a lover of turquoise, you know that is seldom true. Is it true with most colors though?
Phew! Long post!
I hope you've enjoyed this series as much as I enjoyed the kitchen transformation journey. You can see all the steps in the handi-sidebar under kitchen :)
I'm also linking this up to House of Hepworths, funky junk interiors and along for the ride! And just added to Thrifty Decor Chick! Go check out those sites for lots of creative juices flowing! This is my first linky, so wish me luck!
***I'm changing it up again, I think it looks a little 'cleaner' but I'm still interested in your feedback***
