Our Kitchen Update On A Budget
We finally got everything boxed up and moved to Florida!
Moving is so much work, and the house that we bought needed (still needs) work, so I have taken a long break from my art.
We are slowly, but surely, getting settled, and I am getting things all fixed up 🙂 I am funneling all of my creative energy into our home right now and that’s okay! I hope to begin painting for others again soon, but for now, this is what is needed.
I thought I’d share a few before and after photos with ya, so that I don’t feel like I have lost ALL contact with you all!
Since the kitchen was what I felt needed the most help, I decided to clean and paint there first. Here are a few photos….
I started out by painting the bricks with chalk paint. What a difference that made!!
Then I started playing around with ideas for covering up that dreadful chicken backsplash! LOL!I painted and stenciled over it and here’s the end result!
Then I started painting the cabinets 🙂
I decided to do the uppers white and lowers black.
I am really happy with how it all turned out. It took so much work, but it was soooo worth it!
So this is what I have been doing for the past month or so, and….will continue to be doing for a while. It’s hard work, but I love it. We are so blessed to be here in this new (to us) house, and I am enjoying using my creativity to make it our home.
Thankful and blessed, that’s what our family is!
Hope your new year has started off well. I will continue to share updates on our home as I have the time and ability, AND I DO have some plans for paintings…..coming very soon 🙂
