Kitchen Makeover

This post isn't about furniture, but it IS a makeover project that involves painting, so I thought I'd share.  We moved into our little lake cottage five & half years ago.  Ever since the keys were turned over to us, we have been busy updating our house, room by room.  The entire place was dated and run down.  However, we bought our house for the lake property it sits on - so with that as our motivation to keep us going, we've been updating ever since.  It really is quite the transformation when you look back at our original photos.

Here is how our kitchen looked on day one:

As soon as we moved in, we replaced the flooring, painted the walls and the cabinets.  We then continued on with other random updates - new sink & faucet, installed a dishwasher, added under-counter lighting.  All in all, it was a quick fix that could hold us over for a few years. We finally got around to replacing the counter tops and backslash   While there are still things on our kitchen wish list {new appliances!}, we're finally happy in love with how it looks.

I hope these before and after pictures motivate you to pick up a paint brush!  Really, it's amazing what a coat of paint can do!
