Our Kitchen Makeover

12/15/2009 12:00:00 PM / Posted by Heidi Bound /

I have spent two years whining about our small kitchen. Boo hoo-ing and complaining as many of you know! Marty and I have been on a redecorating kick in our Manhattan apartment. We decided it was time to spice up our little kitchen! We are still working on reorganizing things in the cabinets and getting rid of things we don't use. Marty spent ALL day yesterday painting and moving things around. Thrilled to say that I LOVE IT!

Here are some pictures of our BEFORE and now--the finished (well, almost) product!

We picked this fun orange-brown color--for those of you Stampin' Up! folks--it can be compared to PUMPKIN PIE! Very spicy and warm! LOVE it! 

Marty hung our new pots/pans on the side of the cabinet. Their copper bottoms look really cool against the new paint color. 

Marty moved around our microwave a little and scooted the spice rack to the other side of the kitchen. It frees up tons of room. He painted a wasabi green color on the opposite wall of the kitchen. (I will post pics of that some other time.)

One of my favorite parts of the kitchen--the lightswitch which I attacked with alcohol inks and this cute coffee cup stamp from Stampin' Up! It just adds to the funky fun of the our new kitchen! Hope you enjoy it--would love to hear from you!

Can't wait til tomorrow when I see it in person, but looks GREAT in the pix.
Nothing like a fresh new color to make everything seem new!
Great job, Marty.

Heidi, you and Marty are quite a team. I love the colors--pumpkin pie & wasabi! Very clever to move the rack to the stove wall. And your treatment of the switch plate is too cute!
