I painted my kitchen three years ago. Why haven’t I blogged about it? Because I’ve been waiting to finish it. Well that’s obviously not going to happen. I figured I would just share what I’ve been able to finish so far.
Our long-term goal is to replace the linoleum floor, counters and add a backsplash. But for now we had to work with the grey tones in the flooring and counters. And really they aren’t that bad. I know it could be much worse. In our first home we had bright pink counters and floors. So anything is better than that. But I think the blue lower cabinets work with what we had.
I added the wood corbels from Home Depot. Just painted them and hot glued them to the wall. Yup a hot glue gun.
I’m not a crazy stainless person. I actually love the look of white appliances but I’m no fool.
I watch House Hunters.
I switched the pantry door from a bifold door to a french door, and of course gave it a fresh coat of paint. You can see bifold door tutorial here. And the Grocery Sign above the door came from my very own shop The Salvage Sign.
The yellow light was a brass pendant light fixture I found at The ReStore and spray painted yellow. I added the shelf with wood brackets I picked up at a flea market.
I’d love a subway tile backsplash, but that’s not happening anytime soon, so I added some plastic plates to the wall for a bit of character.
Added some cafe style curtains from scrap fabric that I had. The polka dot is from Amy Butler and the floral is from Heather Bailey. I’m slightly obsessed with the Heather Bailey fabric.A little fabric bunting.

Our 7 year-old neighbour thinks it’s really weird that we have a gum display in our kitchen. But it actually functions really well for all those papers that seem to take over our counters.
Sneak peak from the eat in kitchen part. I’ll be posting pictures of the dinning area soon.I know it’s not for everyone. But I think it’s perfect for our young family. And at least it’s not boring anymore.
