Kitchen Morphing

Kitchen before we moved in

 Downsizing and moving into our Cottage
 has been so much fun.
Tom and I don't plan on remodeling.
 It's darling just as it is.
But painting...yes!
Kitchen right after we moved in

The kitchen was cute but I didn't love it.
I knew I had to do something.

So off came the cupboard doors.
Still wasn't in love with the kitchen.

So I painted the back of the cupboards a gray-blue
and added some lace to the edges of the cupboards.

Still working on morphing this kitchen.
Stay tuned.
Next,we are working on the stove area.

I'm beginning to love my kitchen.


  1. Loving your kitchen is important--we spend so much time there. :) I like what you've done so far, and how creatively you have your dishes arranged in your open shelves!

  2. Amazing what a little paint can do! So cute. Glad you are enjoying your new home. Judy

  3. Christine...
    Amazing on what a little change and some paint make to a space! Love the pop of yellow with all your blue pottery! Can't wait to see what you do next!
    dee dee

  4. what a great idea! I love the open look! :)

  5. Great ideas! I'm always rearranging my kitchen or looking for a something new to spruce it up. Just yesterday I painted my kitchen table and bought some new chairs. It helps to make it a fun place to be since we do spend a lot of time in there, and besides the BR, it's the first place we go when we get up!

  6. I Love the kitchen and like what you've done so far.. Cant wait to see the finished product :)

  7. Adding that beautiful gray-blue after you opened the cabinets really made a big difference! I can see the love growing!! ;) Look forward to seeing this love story continue to unfold. blessings ~ tanna

    I can see why you love your cottage kitchen, for sure!
    I like the improvement you made by removing the doors and adding the
    paint and lace trim. All your schtuffkies add the charm!

  9. I love what you've done so far. How fun to work on a project as a couple.

  10. Cute! You did such a nice job.

  11. I sure can understand why you are beginning to love your kitchen. What a cozy, inviting look it has to it! I really like what you did to the cupboard space. What fun for you two to be creating a new look to the place you now call home. Can't wait to see your next steps.

  12. It is looking great..have fun, have fun..that would so energize me, I love doing re-dos!

    Enjoy..I love your cottage

  13. What a great idea! I love the paint color that you painted the back of the cabinet!

    I am loving your kitchen too! Good job!

  14. I love it, and it says COTTAGE.

    Have you named your new nest? Oh, please do so if you haven't. It's the kind of place that deserves a whimsical name.

    And no. "Construction Cottage" is not whimsical so don't even try...

    This is really going to be fun for me to peep in your windows as you add your touches.

  15. I always say the Kitchen is the heart of the home...

    Yours looks so pretty. :)
