My Kitchen Renovation
I love to decorate and change my home but do not like the mess so I have put off my Kitchen renovation for a number of years. When we bought our home many years ago it was the home of an elderly gentleman and he built it to suit his lifestyle. The walls were all panel board. I have papered, painted and added wainscotting to it. That was so outdated I decided this was the year...it was going to be renovated!
We had the walls all gyproced and changed out the doors for the provincial colonial white style. The trim is white colonial as well. It took me some time to decide my color ....the first choice was much oranger than I wanted so back to the hardware store where the clerk added more brown pigment...I love it. The most astonishing thing is that so does my husband.
We hired a carpenter to do the gyprocing, put in doors and frames and the new trim. My husbands coworker did the seam filling and he did a great job. I did the primer and 2 coats of paint. Also decided to paint our ceiling as well...it is stuccoed in a very nice design. I painted the cupboards one color that is two shades lighter than the walls. This is the first time I did the doors and background the same color. Still not sure if I like this or not.
Well as usual things progressed and the floors looked so out of place that we opted to change it too while at it. We picked the new style of laminated flooring that looks like tile. Counter top now needs to be changed and will do so with in the next few weeks...I want it to match the island I have.
I am so in love with my new kitchen...can not believe it is the same one. It is just beautiful with new accessories up...
