The story of a Kitchen Makeover

If you give a girl a paintbrush, she’ll probably ask for a can of paint. So, she’ll go to Home Depot, where she finds TWO perfect colors. With these colors she’ll decide to paint her kitchen:

As she’s painting her kitchen, she’ll realize that adding a backsplash would be really nice:

So, she’ll go back to Home Depot. She finds the perfect backsplash; {Stainless steel look & adhesive! Woot woot!} and while there she sees this…

…and thinks: How great would a shelf be above the sink!!

 {My FAVORITE part of the kitchen is actually this shelf & baskets!!}

After putting up the shelf, she’ll probably need a nap! She’ll dream of what her kitchen looked like BEFORE she painted:

When she wakes up, she’ll be hungry! So she'll go into her new kitchen to get a snack. She’ll notice that her kitchen rug no longer matches… and she’ll go to the store to buy a new one... While there, she’ll probably see a few other things she needs…

When she returns from the store, she’ll sit on her couch, stare dreamily and smile across at her new kitchen!! <3 {LOVE!}

She’ll notice the red pillows on the couch… that totally clash with the kitchen. So she’ll ask to go to IKEA to get new pillows for the living room:

But be prepared. Because if she does get a new pillow, she’ll probably want a paintbrush, to go with it… :)

Thanks so much for looking at my kitchen redo!! It's my first major project & I'm so excited to share it! I’ll have some “how-tos” and what I learned coming soon! For now, I'm going to go sleep in my new kitchen share where I bought some of the supplies and décor:
PAINT: Alabaster White & Cathedral Stone Grey {Lowes}
BACKSPLASH: Home Depot
BASKETS: Michaels
RUG: Target
Cabinet HARDWARE & PILLOWS: Ikea
Inspired by this kitchen at The Lettered Cottage

Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'm glad you found the lunch box notes!

Your new kitchen looks amazing! I adore the back splash! Especially since you pulled it all together for under $500. That rocks!
