I’ve recently been planning for some quick easy kitchen updates and I’ve found some super creative ideas that are simple but can make a BIG difference in the over all feel and efficiency of my kitchen. I’m probably the worst when it comes to updating, remodeling and using my creative talents for redoing my home. Oh I do little things, here and there, BUT for the most part… I don’t focus a lot of my energy on home updates. With the holidays coming though and having older appliances starting to show signs of wearing out…I think it’s time to UDATE!
My daughter recently re did her whole kitchen herself…it was SO beautiful. She painted all of the cabinets black, did the back spalsh out of grey bead board and did the counter tops with …grey chalkboard paint!!! The Chalkboard paint was expressly for counter tops.
This is a picture of what her kitchen cabinets looked like before she painted them. She had already started the back splash:
Although this easy quick kitchen update took a few weeks…the out come was absolutely Beautiful and looked AMAZING! Totally transformed the look of her kitchen and honestly these were pretty simple projects to do.
This is what her kitchen looked like after…in this picture the cupboards look dark brown, but they actually black and the counter top on the island is also darker than in the picture:
THEN she up and sold her house in just a day or two and about 1 month ago bought a new/old home and REDID the kitchen AGAIN! Her house is totally different than the one she has now and I LOVE this new kitchen too! She’s so creative! I think she is going to to white subway tile on the backsplash this time…won’t that be so CUTE! Those handles on the cupboards are antiques!
So what am I going to do to my kitchen? I have Maple Cabinets and haven’t decided if I want to paint them. The reason…I can’t quite decide what color I want. I DO however know that I would like to have Black appliances and I’m in LOVE with this beeautiful Black Stainless Steal Fridge by KitchenAid! I would love to have this baby by Christmas time! I’m tired of the old white ones I’ve had for years.
Black Stainless is a new product and I just love the look! I would love to have this to make my holiday prep so much easier. Our fridge has gone out a couple times this last year…so it’s really time. Best Buy has some great holiday offers running right now through the end of October!
