A place where design, fun finds and family collide

Our kitchen {then and now}

Here is a little comparison of what our kitchen looked like the day we bought our condo, a few years after living here awhile, and what it looks like today.

Now get ready….most people would have taken one look at the original kitchen and said, oh heck no, and went on to another house.

 I knew, though, that this kitchen had potential.  I knew it wasn’t going to happen over night or even in the first year.  With some patience, we are slowly getting our 1980’s kitchen looking pretty good.  We immediately painted the cabinets white, because our kitchen is towards the back of the house and has very little natural light.

We also opened up the cabinets that flank the stove to make it feel more open. But, come on with those counter tops.  So that was our next step….paint time!  Tutorial for painted tile can be found here  
And here we are today!  White cabinets, white tile, gold hardware and new rug. Next will be recessed lighting and two new pendant lights!  That is the step I can not wait for.

    There is nothing worse than getting toward the end of a project and realizing that the placement of the ductwork or other vital building component will prevent some very specific interior design element from happening. ARCHITECT IN RIYADH
