Kitchen Revamp is Underway

July 13, 2011

It’s been a long time waiting, but I’ve FINALLY made my decisions on what to do with my kitchen.  A few months ago…7 months to be exact (back in late December), I mentioned that on my to-do list for 2011 was to makeover my kitchen.  I’d love to do a complete overhaul with new cabinets and beautiful new countertops, but it’s not in the cards right now.  If you remember, I had decided to use stain on the cabinets to achieve a darker look, but was stuck on what to do with the countertops.   Well I changed my mind entirely…a girl can do that, right?!  No more stain, but instead ~ PAINT!

My other major dilemma at the moment was that it was wintertime and I was afraid of the possible smells and vapors from the paint or stain.   Not being able to open the windows is a big no-no with kids in the house.  So I waited and waited and thought and thought……

And now, it’s summer.  I made a decision, the windows are open, and I’m transforming!

Here is a before picture of the kitchen

After lots of thought, I decided to use the Rust-Oleum Countertop Transformation Kit (which I pictured in this post), and a taupe colored paint for the cabinets (I’ll share the specifics in a future post soon)!

Here’s a sneak peak of what we’ve been up to, which I also shared in Sunday’s post.

Tomorrow will be the big reveal…stay tuned!
