Updating the Kitchen


It’s been quiet around here lately simply due to life – but the handmade and home decor projects keep on going in the background, even if I haven’t blogged about it in a while! However, today you’re in luck! I’m excited to share a little about our kitchen re-fresh.

When we moved in, I loved the off-white cabinets, granite countertops and the wide wooden trim. In an ideal world, I’d probably have an entirely white kitchen with white trim, a big white farmhouse sink and marble or quartz countertops. But it’s not an ideal world, so I decided to update the kitchen in stages, based on what was easy to tackle and in our budget. To start, I painted the taupe walls Cream by Sherwin Williams. After some thought, I decided to keep the wooden trim as is – it’s a historic part of our 1920s home and I’ve fallen in love with the unique feeling it gives the space.

To help the white paint shine, I’ll be incorporating pops of color and sewing new pillows for our island stools using one of my favorite Waverly prints.

Here are a few photos of what the kitchen looked like before (these are the photos from the real estate listing.)

Come back later this week to see the AFTER pictures!
