So the first place we decided to sink our teeth into with this house was the kitchen. Eventually we will be adding marble counter tops (I think), wood floors (done recently), new light, new sink, all the good stuff but for now we needed to do something that we felt would make this place look like us. It was so cookie cutter, like every house on our block. So we thought painting the walls, trim, cabinets and adding a back splash would do the trick.
Here is what it looked like, it is small and there is nothing we can do about that so I wanted to make it feel bigger.

|the cabinets done, and new hardware on|
|Ignore the dishes and paint|
|You can see the door frame and wall color, and my dog Teddy’s tail. He is always close|
|We painted this china cabinet a darker shade of the cabinet color|
|Too lazy to paint the inside|
|We did paint the bottom of the upper cabinets, but just one coat. Enough to not make the original color be seen|
