7 before: kitchen and hallway.


Since I've been spending pretty much all of my time in our kitchen lately, I think it's time I updated you what we've been doing in there.  Here's what our kitchen looked like when we moved in.

Don't get me wrong, I don't think there was anything really wrong with the kitchen before.  I love love love my island, the gorgeous granite, and our appliances!  Other than the rooster border and stripes, I didn't really even hate the paint job, but with it being so light there was a little too much focus on all of the wood  for my taste.  

We've also been working on the back hallway that connects the kitchen, half bath, laundry room, mud room, and garage entrance.  Again, here are the before pics.

Oh, floral wallpaper, how I loathe thee.  Let me just say that the amount of wallpaper in this room was very misleading!  

And now for a little teaser, here's the paint we bought for these rooms.

Next up, I'll let you in on the plan!


  1. Can't wait to see what you've come up with!

  2. You are a tease. I know you already painted SOMETHING that blue color and it's not fair not to show pics :)

  3. Can't wait to see the after. Love your chairs.

  4. Goody! Can't wait to see what you're up to!

  5. Ooooo I'm excited to see what it's going to look like!!

  6. Eeeeehm, this kitchen reminds of my Grandma´s kitchen, oak rustic, except for the bling-bling fridge and oven.
    While looking at "American kitchens" around the internet I wonder: Do you have an exhaust hood integrated in this microwave above the oven? Or isn´t this used at all?
    Just wondering about different kitchens around the world...

    Look forward to see, what colour will do to this rooms!

  7. Oh wow, what an awesome kitchen! I can't wait to see the after pictures! Did you paint all the wood (trim, cabinets etc.) white? Also, love that you have that back hallway! Sounds like you found a great home!
