Project #2 The Kitchen...still in progress

The Big Bird Kitchen
...Aunt Robyn called it this...maybe you'll understand why...


The kitchen also was pretty dark. There were bigger aluminum awnings on the outside, which prevented any sunlight from coming in. We took those down and torn down the wallpaper.



We took down the cabinets in order to paint them...and we ate out a lot.
And here are the linoleum floors. We'd like to tile, but that will have to wait.

No one at the paint store mentioned to me that a semi-gloss makes the color a lot more vibrant. I also don't recommend picking a color just because you like the name of it.
It was called 'pure joy'.


Cabinets are back up and Philip and his dad are beginning to tile the countertop!

The beard has just filled in because we have been so busy working on the house...I didn't even notice until Stacy pointed it out.


We haven't finished painting the cabinets, but I was excited to finally put some dishes in the cabinets! We haven't decided if we will put the shelf above the kitchen back up or put in a light fixture instead...let me know if you have any ideas.... :)




Thanks Aunt Robyn and Uncle Chuck for the microwave!!


I would love to keep the cabinet open without doors,
but haven't decided if that will look good or not.
We haven't decided what to do with the ceiling fan yet...we are thinking about track lighting.

Our little pantry area...still in progress as well

Cabinet Hardware...
I haven't decided on hardware yet. I initially wanted a clear glass knob like this one below.

Then I thought a cool bin pull would be fun...but both are a little bit too expensive so I haven't decided yet.
