Since I have been a terrible wife and mother lately and have not been cooking (and therefore have no recipes to share) I thought I would show you our kitchen before and after pictures. We couldn't afford a complete kitchen overhaul so we opted for painting the cupboards and adding hardware. I should show you a picture of the granite to you can see why we chose the colors we did...maybe next time. Ok here's before: (Please excuse the dusty wine bottle, this picture was taken before we moved in!)
The tile in the kitchen is a light gray and we have blue on the walls. The granite is black with silver and blue flecks. We opted for gray cabinets to tie it all in. What do you think? I actually like the color and how the kitchen now feels more planned and finished but the gray has made the room much darker.
I can't believe I'm posting this picture but I was too lazy to clean the table off. Here's our kitchen table and the other corner of the room. Please ignore the disgusting mess on the table and take notice of Mia's cute shoes.
If your kitchen needs a little style and a new look, painting the cabinets is a really cheap way to go compared to replacing them. Adding hardware was also a cheap way to add to the look.
