Today kicks off week two of the Room by Room Summer Series and this week we are dealing with the kitchen. (Last week I shared our entry. Click here to view that post.) It is time to head to the heart of the home, we meals and memories are made. Check out the latest kitchen happenings at The Country House.
Kitchens are always fun to work on because it can make a such a huge impact on the look and feel of a home. However, our kitchen hasn’t changed too much from when we moved in. It is still pretty plain, but we plan to fancy it up in the coming months. That is, once our budget allows.
Here is the kitchen when we first moved in.
We’ve painted some trim and the doors, which has really really brightened up the space. We also added some new pretty door hardware and replaced the faulty oven with a temporary garage sale find.
To add a little farmhouse flair, we painted the peninsula/bar area and framed out an X along the front with 1″x 4″s.
And of course, we installed new flooring.
There is still so much we hope to do to this room! Let’s do a rundown of our to-do list:
- Paint the cabinets
- Add cabinet hardware
- Replace the light fixtures
- Paint the walls
- Buy new appliances
- Make a space in the pantry to hide the microwave
- Redo the counter-tops
