I know I have been teasing everyone with little snippets from our kitchen makeover. It isn't completely done but probably as far as it will get until after Christmas. Do you remember the
Take a look at this AFTER!!!
Do you see those painted counter tops??? How about those painted and glazed cabinets??? You name it, I just about painted it!!! Here is more AFTERS!!!!
I designed the curtain valances and think they may need a little trim...later!! I was really happy with how the faux copper tin back splash turned out!
Love the red of the panels on the patio door. I think the patio door needs to be painted black. Next year!! I like the round rug under the table and the matching runner!
I was excited about how the black cabinets turned out with the distressing and copper handles I painted!
I want something a little taller where the white bowl is sitting. The way the halogen track style lighting shines on the cabinets just makes them glow!! I love it!!
The bakers rack has to go eventually. But first I have to get an under cabinet microwave. I want to put a desk there. On the left of the window I would like a small hutch to put some pretties on! I also want to paint my table and chairs.
I think eventually I will paint the lower part of the walls in the formal dining room in the same brown color to draw the eye into that room and blend them. This chandelier here in the breakfast room has to go soon, too!!

Our coffee brewing station! I painted the tray and put toile wallpaper in it.
So what do you think???? I just love it. It makes me smile when I walk in there! It still needs trim above and below the cabinets, the grout needs color fixing on the floor but for now it is wonderful!!! Just in time for Christmas!
Thank you so much for all the wonderful and supportive comments you bloggers have given me!! I loved it that people were paying attention to the little teasing snippets of the kitchen that I posted!!! Have a great evening!
