Kitchen Tour


As you can see, my kitchen is small.  Very small.  But I still love it.  I prefer to call it cosy and homely. :)
It's still a work in progress, but I wanted to share how much it has changed since we moved in 2 years ago.

Here is a pic of the original kitchen before we moved in.  Lovely pink/apricot coloured cabinets and bench tops, trimmed with brown wooden trim and door knobs.  Blah!  They had to go.  The splash back tiles were new and a blue grey colour that I didn't mind too much so they would stay.  And of course the wooden floor was a keeper. :)

We were on a tight budget and were not sure if we wanted to totally renovate the kitchen yet, so in the interim I painted all the cupboards a glossy white, replaced all the hardware with vintage style black metal door knobs, and got the counter tops professionally recoated black. This automatically made a huge difference don't you think. :)

This week I spent giving all the cupboards a refresher coat of white paint.
I also took the plunge and removed 2 of the cupboard doors and filled the shelfs with all my lovely treasures that had been hiding in the cupboards.

This is my vintage Royal Doulton dinner set.  I love the colour!  I found this on ebay a while back and have had it carefully packed away.  Now I just want to enjoy looking at it. :)

And I love how the white accents really pop against the green.

I love the new open cabinets.  It took a week or so to stop trying to close the now non-existent doors, but now I love walking into the kitchen and seeing all my treasures on display. :)



Hope you enjoyed the mini tour of my kitchen!
