Finally starting the kitchen project (aside from the appliances I told you about yesterday). I'm so excited! The first thing that I needed to do was take down all of the decorations, which I did last week. My kitchen is basically bear of all things pretty right now. I also had to take the hardware down because the dirty and ugly bronzed gold looking stuff was not working for me in the kitchen anymore.
Remember the before?
(I'm not going to paint these little knobs, I'm investing in some cuter pulls.)
And the heap of 80s gold on my dusty rose countertops. Ahhh 1988... you weird colored animal!
My new BFF aka Oil-Rubbed Bronze spray paint by Rustoleum!
Have I ever mentioned just how much I love spray paint? It is such good stuff! Not even the same handles anymore!
Here's a better shot of the handles. They are dark and beautiful! Usually I do everything in nickel but I thought that this would be a good variety for the kitchen, plus they're darker which means they won't show as much as far as fingerprints go. Total investment in these new handles? $0.00
Sweet right?? I obviously already had the handles and the spray paint is one from my arsenal.
Someone asked me the other day what my color scheme was for the kitchen. Here's the basic color set up! White, oil-rubbed bronze tones, and yellow accents! I haven't officially decided on the wall color but I do have some ideas. My Dad is even excited about the kitchen upgrades! I think he's finally come around to the whole idea of redecorating!
Here's a final view of the "Before" kitchen!
