that was very 70's and .... well just not me.
|The kitchen of the house we live in 2003/2004|
|yellow cabinets with brown wooden handles and yellow floor|
So with little money to spend I got some white paint from my mom and tinted it blue and painted the cupboards. Also slowly started replacing the handles - but didn't get very far....
|painted the cupboards just after moving in|
|Floor still yellow and splash back tiles still patterned|
Then we asked our lovely land lady last year if we could tile the kitchen floor and repaint the cupboards....
And she said YES :)
Of course it took a while for us to get going - but we managed to tile the kitchen floor ourselves with big white tiles (which really wasn't as easy as it seems - cause big tiles are harder to tile with!)
Then I started to ponder what colour the cabinets/cupboards should be....
So after many many hours on the internet looking at a kazillion kitchens - we painted the top cupboards white and the bottom cupboards grey and afixed silver brushed handles :) and I really like how it came out :)
|the middle section behind the fruit is still not painted - I wasn't sure if i wanted to tile it or something|
|We took out 2 small sliding doors and replaced the backs of 2 of the cupboards with mirror (see where the dinner plates are)|
|My husband got this table and bench set made up to my dimensions i asked for and then it took me a few days of painting and sanding!|
Well its safe to say that the kitchen unfortunately isn't sparkily and white anymore and there are dishes in the sink :( darn! but atleast it more my style :) chique grey, silver and white :)
