Before I begin the process of documenting the new, I wanted to show you the things I like about my kitchen and what I am keeping. First, I love my Corian countertops that we put in a few years ago. They are a dark gray with flecks of white, black and tan and a great natural looking neutral for anything I want to do.
The floor is a light wood that after many years, I still love. It has a cottage feel that will go well with the modern, French Country look, I hope to achieve.
I painted the cabinets several years ago using a color called Cottage White from Behr. They turned out great and have held up well over the years, with just a few touch ups here and there.
I love my metal Bakers Rack from Pier One. It is fun to decorate for all the holidays and holds many other dishes and pottery pieces that are special to me.
My new white dishes that I purchased this past spring, are perfect for the new look too. I will be adding other white dishes, both decorative and practical.
This whimsical chicken that has been sitting on my table, will also find a new home in the updated kitchen.
So, as you see my kitchen has good bones and just needs the fun kind of updates like paint, lighting and decor. Hopefully I can make some decisions about those in the next few days - I am off to the stores today to try and pick some things out :-)
Have a great weekend!
