Last week we shared our entryway and next up is the kitchen summer home tour.
When we moved in a little over one year ago, painting the cabinets were first on my to-do list. Curious about the ‘makeover’? Check it out here.
Although painting the cabinets was somewhat of a pain in the ass, I do believe it’s one of those projects that ever DIY’er needs to experience.
It’s like a rite of passage or something.
You go through the tedious, never-ending process and then you’re done and it’s like, “Okay, we can do this.” It’s the confidence builder we (well, probably just me) needed to think we could actually tackle a house remodel.
With that being said, I think once is definitely enough.
Case in point – we’re not as crazy about the cabinet color as we were a year ago. Am I going to repaint them? Absolutely not. It’s a live-and-learn kind of thing and I’d much rather have these than the originals.
Like I mentioned in the entryway tour, we’re scaling back our decor this season and while the kitchen has a few more trinkets, it’s still less than usual.
Side note: It’s quite the wake up call when you actually bring all of the home decor things you use to one, central location. I think I heard Brett mutter ‘hoarder’ a time or two under his breath as I was hauling all of the things downstairs. 😉
The table centerpiece is made up of a giant galvanized tray, a white pitcher of fresh flowers, some mason jars wrapped in twine, a napkin holder and silverware holder.
The coffee car has some simple wire baskets for filters and mugs and the command center has had a thorough cleaning – those papers pile up too quickly!
The only piece I actually WANT to keep cluttered is that awesome wine rack Brett made for me a few years ago. The struggle is real, my friends.
Our counters are a collection of thrift store cutting boards, jars for various cooking needs and a giant fruit bowl.
To finish it off, no space would be complete without greenery scattered throughout – some fresh flowers by the sink and on the table, and some succulents on the island and pantry cabinet.
All our best,
