Sunday, October 02, 2005 is my kitchen!

Well, it's no Trading Spaces but for $127 it ain't bad. Eventually, when i save enough cash, i'll get new floors, plantation blinds and new lighting. but, for now - it's all gooood. Here are what plantation blinds look like, by the way:

here is my kitchen before: (i had already painted the walls white before i realized i didn't have a BEFORE pix - so picture the walls the same ugly cream)

and after:

This was also very complicated to put all the handles (which require drilling two holes to MATCH each hole in the handle) for 7 drawers, adding on 22 knobs to all the cabinet doors so it just seemed like such a MAJOR project with only a bit of a difference.

It’s so vibrant! I love the green. What a difference, and all on a shoestring. Go you Miss DIY.

well thank you everyone. i do like it. but i'd like it more if i had an extra 10,000 to add some skylights, an island, a grill (for veggies only :), and a freezer bottomed refrigerator.

but, alas, those are wants; not needs...i'm happy with what i have.

Ahh Tanya..
Looks good, I'll have to come by and see it in real life. Where are you going to put the plantation blinds? I need some window dressing help at my house (hint, hint). The black trim reallys seals the deal! Very cool sis.

Nice before and after pictures. It's like watching one of those home improvement shows, without the shirtless carpenter.
