Kitchen upgrade

Well, I finally did it. It was a harrowing experience...five days of mud, grout, and wet paint., not to mention no access to the stove, the refrigerator, the freezer, and the laundry room. But it was worth it. My dingy yellow kitchen is now a creamy beige color with a kickass wall of rusty red. 

My favorite contractor and friend, Richard, had his crew install a beautiful terrazzo tile floor in addition to painting the walls and repairing the ceiling. He will help with the installation of a new stove and sink next week. I am ecstatic with the results. Have included a picture of it below.

You probably have noticed there are no chairs around the table. That's because it's a baker's table and we use it for food prep, etc at the bed and breakfast. If I have people over to dinner, we eat in the dining room.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration, Nancy! I too need to paint, re-floor and update sink and stove/oven [to gas]. Your simple post helped give me an "I can do" attitude :)


  2. Well, I didn't actually do the work myself, but i did pick out the tile and paint colors. I just love it. I was so sick of the yellow I had for the past 15 years. I've ordered a new stove and sink much fun!
