Want to come see?...Kitchen and Den (Before's and After's)

{I've linked up at Between Naps on the Porch, for Metamorphasis Monday}
Precious darling little child (he was one here)...but I'm showing you the wall behind him. Dark, dreary (nice wood paneling, not the cheap stuff..but too dark), the only 'before' picture I could find for now.

AFTER: Painted and I've already started hanging things on the wall and I'm loving it so far.


After: Bright white (creamy white)...cheery, prettier!!! Not all the way finished, but pretty much. New flooring (ceramic tile), painted cabinets and walls, new knobs...new me.



Before: Wow...yucky. The CARPET HAD to GO!!!!!!!...Orange cabinets HAD TO GO!!!




Hello Pretty Girl! (Bar stools are off with my painter getting painted a nice shiny black coat.)





EYES ARE BLEEDING........






Ok, much better.


Friends, there is still quite a bit for me to work on but I just couldn't keep you hanging any longer. You'll still have MUCH more to look at ....so, stay tuned for more greatness.

Katy, it looks great! What a difference! Did you link it up to Met Monday? You should, it's fantastic! Congrats, you must be so happy to have it all freshened up in there! Thanks for giving me the heads up, blogging has been on the back burner while we get our kitchen in order. It's getting there.

Love it! Love it! I know you are sooooooo glad you painted those cabinets. Painting cabs is one of the yuckiest jobs, but also one of the most rewarding when they are all done! This will make all that holiday cooking a little more bearable. ha!
