Kitchen: Take Two

One couple’s adventure in kitchen remodeling

Where to begin…

Posted by kitchentaketwo on January 26, 2009

Rewind to September 2006. Scott and I had found a house with plenty of space, lots of blank slates (walls and floors) and in our price range. Score! But the house was built in 1977, so though there had been a number of updates throughout, there were still things we wanted to change. For now, though, I’ll stick to the kitchen.

Here are a couple of before shots. These were taken before we moved in. Not too bad for a 30 year-old kitchen, but the dark, dated cabinets and yellowed vinyl flooring didn’t set our hearts afire.

This was our blank slate.

So, before we moved in, we vowed to lighten up the kitchen by giving the walls a neutral tone and showing the cabinets some love with bright white paint.

Or, that was the plan…
