Prepping for a New Kitchen

I have been waiting and waiting for this. Forever it feels, but maybe, just maybe, the dream will soon become a reality. 

To update our kitchen!

In fact, I blogged about this last April.

My Pinterest Board is titled "The Great Kitchen Debate" because it has been a great debate. A great one. Not necessarily arguing, but trying to decide exactly what we want. 

The idea has changed over a variety of times from yellow cabinets to white to now this:

Winter Fog by  Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformation

We will be using the unglazed.

Our walls are wonky so I decided to just do the basic back splash in bead board. My dream kitchen would have subway tile, but my reality kitchen will be bead board. I don't think it is healthy to stop dreaming.

We have already painted our walls supposedly a whitish gray, but more of a white white. I believe that the cabinets will look awesome against the white white walls. Time will tell, and I may just have to whip out my paint brush again. Really Ken will. He prefers to paint. Maybe it is because I get more paint on me than on what needs to be painting.

The rest of the kitchen will have this ...

The upper cabinets will be bejeweled with this lovely knob ...

The bottom cabinets in this one ...

The drawers ...

and I would love for my sink to look like this, but it will not ...

That is okay, because we will have butcher block counter tops much like the ones above!

That is my splurge.

The faucet that I am eyeing, however, ...

We are getting all of our jewelry and butcher block from this company, and I cannot wait to show you!

So here's to making my dream into a reality!

On Friday, I will share with you what it takes to hang a new light in the kitchen ...



  1. I love everything!!! Especially the butcher block and sink... The butcher block counter tops are MY dream!!! I can't wait to come see what it looks like!!!

  2. Love everything you picked out especially the pulls for the upper cabinets!

  3. I can't wait to see this amazing kitchen come together!!

  4. Oh I am loving it all!!! FYI when we redid our kitchen I fell in love with a $300 faucet and got in for $80 on ebay. Can't wait to see it all done!
