    Wish me luck ya'll [IMGS]

    Advertisements
    So I woke up this morning and got the bright idea to completely re-do our kitchen

    We got this house 2.5 years ago and have not done ANYTHING to it..we needed to it was a forclosure

    So I grabbed some paint for lowes and some stain because I'm going to sand and re-stain our cabinets..I know its not much but im proud of myself because I've never done this before and dh is on duty so im doing it all myself

    here is my progress so far

    before:








    The colors are Vanilla Brandy and the wall behind our stove is called quack grass

    Surprisingly the colors go very well together and I like them..I know its not a big deal but like i said ive never done this by myself before


    I'll show u when its all finished and when I re-do the cabinets tonight!

    ps i know my house is a wreck im not a clean painter

    Looks good so far. I think you need a pretty back splash for above the stove for some pop of color

    Even just the paint has warmed it up a ton! I love it and good luck with the rest!

    I think so too...The green behind the stove is brighter than the picture but a backsplash would look better I think....and some new damn floors but thats not going to happen today

    You can do it That was the first thing DH did when I bought our house, also a foreclosure. DH was here to help so kudos to you for doing it alone!
