Okay, it's really my progress of the One Room Challenge and my Craigslist Kitchen. If you would like to, visit week one and week two when I didn't think it was all that bad.
Well, the cabinets and the island are painted.
|Not sponsored nor supplied by Sherwin Williams, but what I purchased and used for the cabinets and island.|
|OMG... what was I thinking?????|
AND, I don't know, but maybe I did something while scrubbing cabinets because our microwave died. Maybe some water and TSP dripped into it. What a scramble I had, looking for another one that had to match the GE appliances AND fit in the cabinet space. I ended up buying one at Lowe's within 3 days. Going without a microwave while working on a kitchen that you really don't want to cook in while paint is drying and curing was plain miserable.

1. While painting, I cleaned out the cabinets, the island, and the decor to make up SIX boxes of stuff for donations. AND I sold our bar stools on Craigslist. (Room to dance now, ey? Insert Bob Seger "Old Time Rock 'n Roll".)
2. The white bright kitchen is amazing. What a fresh feeling kind of room to wake up to! I don't regret going to white. At all. Even though I don't have the coffee station finished, the coffee smells and tastes better already.
So here we are with the to do list after the week of madness.
Make a coffee/tea/hot chocolate station
Change out decor and overall style
Make a farmhouse style pulley light fixture for the table area
Cover the exposed side of the refrigerator with chalkboard and beadboard
Make a small windowsill herb garden.
Added "Range hood" enhancement: Corbels and shelf.
Island and eat-in area. Not what mine will be, but the layout, colors, and textures are the same.
