Mini Kitchen Tour . now this is not going to be like an official kitchen tour just because we still have a few things we want to do but I figured at least in the meantime I would give you guys some updates and kind of just show you our progress so far the main first thing that we did is we took out our fireplace silencer a picture here we had a wood-burning fireplace and basically it just never got you as much we did use it when we first moved into our house but I don’t know it was just kind of messy to use it and always just seemed kind of like a hassle so we rarely ever used it to have a fire so we just decided to rip that baby out we took the wall down it was actually quite easy i think phil and i did it i want to see it took us maybe altogether about four hours it really wasn’t bad at all so we took that wall out and then build this awesome kitchen island.
I absolutely love this kitchen island i’m so excited because now I have so much more space for storage and then it’s also nice when we have to get together at my house because there’s more seeing and just more places to put food and things like that another one of the main changes we did in this kitchen was we painted the kitchen cabinets white if you just saw the before picture you noticed they were a dark brown originally when we moved in there a light gold color and I have painted them the dark brown color and then this time I decided to go with white and I am so happy with the way they turned out they really brighten up the kitchen.
My New Kitchen – Mini Kitchen Tour/Remodel Update
And I want to say it processes under armour dollars so i feel like that is so inexpensive and it makes such a huge difference I just feel like it gives the kitchen a completely new and fresh look for under a hundred dollars to pay our kitchen cabinets what we did is we removed all of the doors and I lightly sanded all of them and then bill and i bought a paint sprayer from harbor freight and it worked out really well and then for the inside stationery parts I just and those down and painted them with a small roller another big change for our kitchen was we did upgrade and get some new appliances we still need to buy a new refrigerator i actually spotted the one that I want at home depot the other day so that is next on our list hopefully we’re going to be getting a new refrigerator in the next month or so we did get a new dishwasher and I am so in love with this dishwasher are other one was so noisy when the dishwasher was running I couldn’t even talk on the phone because it was so noisy in the background.
And this one when it’s running i cannot even tell them on you could barely hear anything so I’m really happy about that and I also notice a huge difference i can tell that my dishes are a lot cleaner and then we bought a new over-the-range microwave and a you stow one of my favorite additions to our kitchen would have to be these gorgeous hanging light bill added two of them above our island two smaller ones and then a bigger one over here here is another view of the kitchen i just wanted to show you guys from this angle so you can kind of see a better view of the hanging lights and there’s Molly she’s laying over there with her little octopus boy I think she wants to fly it’s funny because every time I start recording then we bring their poise and they want to play another thing that we also did to change up the look of the cabinet’s a bit was changed the kitchen polls so these here I picked up on ebay i was originally looking at these kitchen poles at lowes exactly one hold on just a second phone is ringing ok I’m back sorry about that so basically these same polls i was looking at lowes and I think they were around five or six dollars a piece which I thought was ridiculous and it’s going to cost so much money so i looked on ebay and i found the identical ones for right around a dollar apiece I think for all of the polls in this kitchen with shipping the shipping was free it came to I want to say forty five dollars which is amazing because i need quite a bit of the polls so if you’re looking for kitchen full definitely check ebay they have some really nice ones for super inexpensive.
So i think that is pretty much everything for now like I said we still have a couple changes to make we are going to be changing up this backsplash I do still like this backsplash but I don’t know I feel like lately I just feel like it’s too busy for my taste so we’re just going to be replacing it with something a bit more neutral but like I said once we do that i will definitely up to you guys and then we still need to get the new refrigerator and that is we might add some crown molding to the top of our kitchen cabinets still not sure about that but like I said once we do that i will definitely give you guys an update and kind of like a full kitchen tour now I’m just going to go ahead and show you guys a few easter goodies that i recently picked up one of the things i wanted to show you guys that I picked up for Easter decorations are these cute little bunny tails I picked these up from pier 1 imports and I just stuck them on the back of my bar stools and I think that hooks so cute i recently picked up these cute little Easter Bunny jars from target you get two of them and they were only three dollars look how cute these are I was originally going to DIY some of these I saw it on pinterest and then when I saw these for only three dollars i thought there’s no way i could DIY these birds cheap as three dollars for two of them so i thought i would just buy some of these i’m probably going to fill these up with candy and give them away for some little Easter gifts these little Easter dish shells are also from the target one spot I think I showed these in my last target blog and you also get two of these for three dollars I think that this cute little guy from meijer I’ve been looking at these four weeks and i finally decided to buy one they actually had them in all different animals they had ducks I think they had a dog and our but i decided to go with the bunny since it’s almost Easter and then inside of it these are actually real succulent so I’m a little bit nervous about keeping these alive because I’m not the greatest at keeping indoor plants alive but we will see how that goes alright guys I think that is basically everything for now i will definitely keep you updated on the kitchen
