I can envision exactly what I want my kitchen to look like… But, when I try and explain it to people, I get some strange looks… People, I know what I’m doing, okay!?!? I promise green cabinets will good. I have actually had people pay me to tell them what to do with their homes, so I think it just might be alright. Anyway, because some folks are having a hard time envisioning my goal, I dug around and found a picture similar to what I want to do with my cabinets… They will be smidge darker, but pretty much look the same. I am also thinking of going with similar countertops as the ones shown…
Something along these lines:
Here is my bright, white kitchen now (We will also be removing the border that was put up by the builder before we bought our house and we will be cutting the bar down to countertop height. I have said I was taking that border down since the day we bought the house, but it hasn’t been on the top of the to-do list! Not a fan of border…):
See! Won’t it look spectacular with green cabinets and light stone countertops???
We are also doing major work in the backyard… Some landscaping, putting in an enormous playground area with a big play structure and putting in a deck. And, we are getting estimates for closing in our back porch. We want to make it a sunroom/office. In the kitchen, we are redoing the cabinets, getting new countertops and cutting the bar down, so we’ll have a lot going on… I’m soooo excited. I have no idea how long my house will be torn up, but hopefully, it won’t be too long. Living without countertops will probaby prove to be no fun.
The Mister is the most excited about the sunroom/office and backyard. While I made him see the light on adding the room, I can’t help but look forward to my kitchen facelift the most! Maybe it will inspire me to cook. Ehh, probably not.
The estimates begin today! 1:00 the first contractor will be here to work up some numbers. Let the games begin.
