DIY Day-kitchen!!

My biggest DIY project so far has been painting our kitchen and kitchen cabinets.  I did the BIG project the week between Christmas and new years.  I LOVE the way it turned out but it was a ton of work!   When we moved in our kitchen was knotty pine-yuck!!!  It was awful!

 I love the rest of our house and the kitchen was my least favorite room.  Right after we moved in Graig, my Dad and I spent a few days and painted our whole kitchen blue.  I  liked the way it looked for a few years but after a while I wanted a change!  So right after Christmas I decided to get to work.  It took a lot of work but I am SO glad I did it!  I really, really like our kitchen now! 

Here are some before pictures:

Here is what it looks like now

I can't wait to see the other projects that will be shown today!  I always get so many good ideas.

Happy Tuesday!

It turned out really well, Angie. I really like the toile fabric touches as well.
