Greetings! If you’re here from the summer tour hosted by My Life From Home– welcome!

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.

    Wow!! I am seriously loving your kitchen-especially the wine rack! What a cool project. I am just planning to paint my cabinets so you scared me a bit, lol! I know it will be work, but definitely better than they outdated look they are now. Love your coffee station too.
