kitchen reveal

Alrighty…now…like i said on monday. i’m not like totally done. above my cupboards i have a TON of space…and i’m kinda stuck….but for now i’m okay with it..

so my kitchen was apple green and brown with a little red and blue (you can see a couple befores HERE and HERE (these are very beginner posts of my blog!)…… but i found this from pinterest

and this one…

and loved them….

so i started slowing making it over…
first paint:

it’s call fresh mint from dutch boy and it’s the pretty color of blue that might have green in it…i’m super happy with…and it’s pretty true to the paint chip…

i edit my photos so some might come out more of a brighter blue…or more green…but here’s a picture not edited…with the door open

and with the door closed (in case it makes a difference)

can i take a moment of your valuable time to express my distaste for my culligan machine.
now..don’t get me wrong. i love it. the cold water is well worth it. but it always shows up in pictures and kinda makes it look like a sore thumb…

and i was going to cover it with fabric…but i was afraid you all would think it was an april’s fool joke or something….

anyways..i painted the main wall and the back splash… (i’m planning on painting the rest a bright white….but i wouldn’t hold my breath if i were you)

okay..let’s start with the entrance…(all the links to the tutorials are at the end)

the chalkboard wall starts us off
if you walk straight you run into my table

the view into the living room….

see those plates in the corner? they are the post that was supposed to schedule yesterday….
next to them is my door…

if this was my house you can bet your bottom dollar that those cupboards would be painted white….but since it’s not my house….you get what you get and you don’t throw a fit.

this corner is where i stash all those mason jars that i hoard

I don’t have a tutorial for my grocery bag holder…but i followed THIS one by make it and love it

i made this terra cotta pot bubble gum jar…then i found this old one at the thrift store..and now i’ve decided i’m going to collect them….(and i might use this one as a fish bowl)

I had to redo my menu board:

and added some new fabric behind my frame

rainbow print

recover a lamp into a drum shade

painted mason jars

and edited to add:
i stenciled a big chevron pattern above my cabinets! go HERE

and true to form…here’s all the crap i moved off my counters so it doesn’t look cluttered…

(it’s mostly dog food and my husbands muscle inhancing crap)
