Hi friends, today I like to show you what can happen when you start a project the wrong way! Remember my kitchen project? Well, I painted the kitchen and was waiting on my butcher block counter tops… then this happened —> Planning a new kitchen!
I am not sure what I was thinking, trying to paint this old and really in bad shape kitchen, the doors under the kitchen sink look all bubbly due to water that must have run down. I think at one point I was trying to camouflage it with the white paint, but this made it worse and every time I do dishes it just stairs at me! After painting the cabinets, I was very disappointed with how the Annie Sloan Paint looked after it was applied, maybe a course on how to paint a kitchen with A. Sloan paint would have helped. However, it’s too late for that now!
After also talking to a friend that is a realtor, I was asked if I would accept the kitchen in its current condition if I had to buy our house again? You know, when we bought the house, we said to ourselves that a kitchen gut-out would have to be done anyway. However, due to my pregnancy back than and a limited budget we kept pushing it off.
So, one year later …with the same kitchen, but in worse condition. We finally decided to tackle this thing and remodel the entire kitchen! Amen!!!
First off, I measured the entire space. And went on the Ikea website to use the Kitchen planner that they provide.
After setting up the layout and adding all the cabinets, I printed out the list for all the items we need for the new kitchen, and our next step is to go to IKEA in the next couple of weeks and actually order the kitchen.
I am so excited, that I had to share a few Ikea kitchens with the same finishes we chose.
