My New (old) Kitchen

I have been updating my kitchen with new countertops, backsplash and paint! It is quite the transformation. If you recall, my earlier days in this kitchen felt a little like working the drive through at Checkers. You may remember the updates along the way... see here.

 I changed out the Luna Pearl granite for Vermont White and love the lighter look with tons of movement! 
 I gave the white walls a little color with Benjamin Moore's "Hint of Pink". I love how it makes the cabinets and the trim pop. 
 Remember my fab chinoiserie chairs from HomeGoods? I love the aqua geometric with the rest of the color scheme. 
 The arabesque tile is accented with a gray grout and while I was sad to lose my mirrored backsplash...
 I added some mirrors to the cabinet doors. It bounces light around the room and makes the long kitchen feel wider. 



What do you think? Small changes make a big impact. Now, I have the kitchen of my dreams. 
Bye bye birdie... (and happy weekend)

A shiny new 'old' kitchen it is! I must agree that the small things creates a huge impact. Who wouldn't recognize your new kitchen tiles? Also, the huge windows paved way for natural light, which made your kitchen refreshingly bright. With a kitchen like this, I'm sure you're always inspired to cook delicious meals for your family.
