Kitchen Re-do: My RED Kitchen

I am HAPPY to announce that we FINALLY finished our kitchen re-do project.  It only took us 1 1/2 years but who is counting?

We scraped and peeled wallpaper, floated the walls, painted the walls and ceiling, painted the island and decorated.  Yes, all that took 1 1/2 years but again, who is counting?

So here is the before pic.  It was actually the pic that was online when it was on the market.  Note the country blue wallpaper (and it had the 80's goose border too).  Lovely, huh?

Photo: Here's the before (when we bought it)...note the country blue wallpaper that had a goose border.

Photo: Here it is!  We will eventually paint the cabinets and get new countertops but for now...this is PERFECT!

And here is the "almost" final product!  We have added some things on the top of the cabinets since I took this pic but for the most part this is it!  It was a big commitment painting it red (I know) but I have wanted a RED kitchen for a long time and I had bought a lot of the red things a long time ago and just waiting for my red kitchen to come along.

Next phase will be the big guns phase.  We are going to move appliances around, have a new island built, new flooring and paint the cabinets.  We are also wanting to build false beams for more lighting and then possibly hang a pot rack from them over the island.  All this will come when the income tax refund arrives next year but until then, I LOVE MY RED KITCHEN.
