Kitchen Makeover - Before & After!

warning: LOTS of pictures ahead!!! it pains me to show you these before pictures - that's how much i hated it. promise we can still be friends afterwards! here goes..

BEFORE:





....aaaaaaannnnndddd AFTER!









i think it is sooo much warmer and feels both bigger and more cozy at the same time. obviously, we still need to put some stuff on the walls. i have a couple of things picked out, but it involves a road trip to cincinnati for me to get both of them. overall - i'm kind of in love with this room now! what do you think??

Looks great! That color is so much better and does make the space appear larger. Great job!

It looks so great! Neutral but not boring. I'd cook all night long in that kitchen!

It doesn't look like a grandma kitchen any more! Which is what I thought it looked like when you were originally doing the kitchen, but you just don't say those things on a person's blog, you know?
Good picks :)
