Especially considering that this is what we started with:
|It's called "Scandinavian Style." I call it "Blech!"|
We painted the area behind the fridge with our new paint color, but obviously, we still need to do the rest of the kitchen. This week's mammoth project will be refacing the cabinets and installing new countertops. We're on a tight schedule, too...this Saturday is our Baby's 1st Birthday/Father's Day BBQ Joint Celebration, so the kitchen HAS to be done! At some point, we'll rip up the linoleum and put in ceramic, too.
Here's where the fridge was:
|Like the mess?! The fridge was really in the way of the entry door.|
|The brick pillar is original to the house. Cool, huh?|
We haven't decided if we'll stain the wood ourselves as we reface the cabinets or if we'll use Rustoleum's Cabinet Transformations kit, but I'll keep you posted as to our progress. If anyone's used the Cabinet Transformations, please let us know how it worked- did you love it or hate it?
Added bonus: rearranging and gutting the kitchen left room for my laptop to have a permanent home:
