The kitchen. Ain't she a beaut?
I am sighing and shaking my head in exasperation as I am typing this. When we bought this house there were many, many things that made me thrilled to be able to call it home. The kitchen was not one of them. By a long shot. In fact, from the beginning, I knew that the kitchen would be my nemesis. The ultimate stock oak cabinet, nasty white (not anymore) sink, tumbled limestone, late nineties, miniature version of a kitchen, that would kill me slowly. And so it has.
A wee bit on the dramatic side, maybe. But then, it's not your kitchen.
Now, there are plans to gut it, knock down walls, take the powder room sqft. down by half, etc. However, that is years down the line (hopefully only 2-3, but, you know how that goes.) Am I able to be patient and wait for that to happen, living with it as-is? Not a freakin' chance. I at least need to be able to enjoy it to the best of it's ability while it is waiting for the final axe to come. So, enter the mini-lift.
I have decided that I need to give it a little bit of loving to keep my sanity in the meantime. Putting lipstick on the proverbial pig, if you will. Below, you will see it in it's current primed state.
Nope, no big reveal today. In fact the only reason I'm showing you right now, is so you can hold me accountable to get the thing finished this side of Christmas. Pressure helps me get things done. Sad I know, but true.
So, let me include you on the plans here. They ain't grand so don't get too excited. Lipstick on Pig, remember. It involves a lot of paint (surprise, surprise.) The idea is that the cabinets are going to go a very light grey (Lord, I love grey,) similar to these...
OR even alllll white. Similar to these...
God I love that last kitchen.
It's going to be a game-time decision I think. So there you have it. The kitchen plan (for now) in a nut shell. I will report back when the painting is done. Hopefully in the next few days!
Til then, easy does it all. It's hot outside!
