Alright ladies and gents. It's time for a kitchen update!
Three years ago when Jason bought our home, the kitchen looked like this:
Wheeeeeee doggies - what a beautiful space!
In June 2010, we did a major overhaul on this space, but (as with many things in our house) there were lots of things left unfinished (or at least, un-blogged).
So can you see the differences between these two photos? I'll help you out.
No more wagon wheel lights, drawer pulls added, glass cabinet doors/china cabinet finished, and now, finally, beadboard backsplash added.
Similarities? Yeah, same lovely floor. We'll get there. :)
I really love the bright punch the backsplash gives the space. Much better than the old paneling that was unearthed behind the old laminate... muuuuch better.
And ahhh... my beautiful china cabinet. I loved looking at kitchens that had glass cabinets, but knew we couldn't do it for all of them. I'm so glad we decided to make this section special.
I still haven't used my china though. But having it RIGHT THERE means that I'm sure I will. Someday. Like really soon. I'm sure. Or at least one of the tea cups. Yeah. Definitely.
Anyway, she's come a long way, no? :)
