Kitchen Makeover...

I wanted to do a fun post today on some changes we have made over the past three years of us being in our house! I will let the pictures speak for themselves...

The cabinest had lost their spunk and looked an old orange piney color. The appliances were probably as old as the house! And lastly the tile were the old blue 90s style and color. So not cute and soo not our style.

I loove the new feel of my kitchen! It is much more my style. Crisp and clean. I am planning on changing the paint on the walls eventually, but other than that I am happy with the way it looks and feels.

I painted the cabinets which is a task I truly hope to never have to do again on any of our houses. It makes all of the difference in the world, but it is a lot to take on. If you can afford it, pay someone to do it!

 We have replaced all of our appliances over time here and there. Nothing fancy but definitely updates the kitchen.

We replaced the recessed lighting above our sink with a pendant light. Seriously the easiest project I ever did and super affordable. Plus it looks so much better with it!

We replace our faucet fixture as well.

I opened up some of our cabinets and removed the doors to give a hutch feel. I love it.

Finally, we got new tile! We chose the larger tile and set them diagonally to give the illusion of a bigger kitchen and it is amazing how well that works! It seriously feels so much larger and we got rid of the blue yucky tile!

The kitchen may be my favorite room in the house now! :)
