Kitchen Make-over

This is what our kitchen looked like when we first bought our house.  Beautiful orange and gold carpet EVERYWHERE!

My hubby Lloyd replaced the carpet with this 'rustic barnwood' laminate flooring which I LOVE!

The cabinets were in really good condition, but outdated, so Lloyd took them all off to sand and paint them. Oh, and you can see where Lloyd is sitting is drawers, after painting Lloyd removed them and I got a dishwasher!! YAY!!!  I do NOT miss the drawers or cabinet space it took away, I'd much rather have the dishwasher.  And my hands love me for it too.

When we took the carpet off the bar we were left with a lot of yucky glue that wouldn't sand off.

Here is the kitchen with a coat of paint on the walls and cabinets, you can't tell but we've distressed the cracks of the cabinets and still have more to scuff and put some stain to seal the cabinets.

I absolutely love the new look it gave my kitchen, see my dishwasher!  Maybe someday I'll get a new stove and fridge.....


  1. Hi! Very nice blog... thank you for the comments and I guess we can relate about PCOS. It's nice when I can meet people that understand how it is.

    I'm following back and thank you for following as well.
    I hope you have a great week!
    Right now I'm looking to get some rest after being wide awake for 33 hours :P

    See you soon!
