Minor Kitchen redo


I've been wanting to redo my kitchen pretty much since we moved in (a little over 3 years ago), other things have taken priority and it's always been put on the back burner.  Then I couldn't decide on a color.  I had tried something different a turquoise color that I loved but once it was on the wall (we only did a small section) we realized it just wouldn't work in this space.  So I went back to my original idea of brown.  Then today I found a great cabinet at Pier 1 Imports.  It was more than I wanted to spend but I just loved it.  I added a small ledge type shelf for my most used spices and installed that.  I do hope to replace the countertops soon - hopefully next year but we'll see how it goes.

Indigo4320 thank you. They are actually part of our dining set. Our dining room table is a pub height table that came with 8 chairs. We only use 6 of them so I put the other 2 in the kitchen at the island. We got the dining table at RC Willey. We really love it, however, I don't know that I'll ever buy furniture from there again, we've had issues with everything we bought from them.

Thank you! Hihowareya, I was nervous about the brown, that might have been why I thought of other colors to try instead. But I'm so happy I went back to my original idea of the brown. I absolutely love it.

I would usually be scared of painting walls brown, but this really has changed my mind: this looks absolutely fabulous! :-)

Thank you ladies. I look at the before picture and it's hard to imagine it like that. I used to feel so drab and unhappy when I would go into the kitchen. Not anymore!

I agree, Twinkle. It may seem minor, but it changes the whole feel of the room! I love it.
