kitchen re.NEW.vation

Well, I'm happy to announce that I have enough $ to begin transforming my kitchen.

From 90's-what-were-they-thinking?.... 

                                              to freshly painted cream antiqued cabinets... and more!

The first thing I did when we got the house was take pictures of every room, from different angles in hopes of a Before & After comparison.  Hopefully I'll get the kitchen/dining room pics uploaded within the next day or two.

Tomorrow begins Day One of my very first DIY home project.  

                                              And I'm SO stoked!

My lovely sister-in-law, Sheree', will be helping me day by day. Tomorrow we are picking up all the supplies we will need for refinishing/antiquing the cupboards. And with whatever naptime Acacia takes, we'll be removing the doors, drawers, and hardware, and cleaning everything off. 

To prep, this evening I'll number all the doors and drawers according to their location for easy re-installation.  

Though I do have the funds to repaint, unfortunately some changes will have to wait - like getting all new cabinet hardware, ripping out the old backsplash and tiling a new one that matches the paint, and maybe one day getting new floors and/or countertops. 

Photos and updates to come.
