Hooray, it’s May!!! (And for all you Star Wars fiends, May the 4th be with you!)
So you guys may remember (but probably not) wayyyyy back in August of 2015 when I talked about us FINALLY getting around to updating our kitchen a little. You can see more about that here. Well, I’m here (21 months later) to give you an update!!! Better late than never, amirate??!?
As a reminder, here’s where we started when we moved in.
It looks like the blah patrol threw up all over everything.
After we moved in, we did a couple of quick updates – namely paint and a new fridge.
The green definitely spiced things up, but I got tired of it after approximately 3 days. Yet it stayed that color for approximately 4 years. *Oops*
But I am thrilled to say that we have actually made some *real* progress now that I’m super stoked about.
So far, we painted the kitchen in one my favorite shades (Semi Sweet by Valspar), got a new table and chairs, took down a couple of the cabinets to replace them with some open shelving/mug rack, painted the remaining cabinets white, and upgraded the stove, dishwasher, and microwave.
Here’s what left on our checklist: hardware for the cabinets, new countertop, and adding a subway tile backsplash. Can.not.WAIT. until this project is officially checked off the list!
