A Kitchen Makeover

Our kitchen has been a big eye sore since we moved in 3 1/2 years ago. It was one of the first things we wanted to remodel, but after looking at costs, it didn't happen as fast as we wanted.

This is from when we first closed on the house...




This was in 2010 after we added the tile floor... (this was right after the installers left which is why it looks so dirty!)




Now 3 years later we decided to go ahead and get a granite countertop, a backsplash, scrub down the white cabinets and add new hardware! We of course also added decorations, curtains and a hutch for all of our crystal we got as wedding gifts. I knew I wanted to do a red and turquoise theme and used this picture from pinterest as my inspiration for decorating! 












{yes we have a stack drinks in the corner... we have no other storage in our small kitchen! haha}








We are so happy with how it turned out! The granite and backsplash really make our ordinary (and kind of ugly) white cabinets pop and actually look good! I'm also really happy we happened to find that  hutch at Costco one day for a really good price. It worked great for all of our crystal pieces that were still in their boxes in our closet. 

Have you ever remodeled a kitchen?

Love the kitchen remodel! I wish we could afford to get new backsplash and countertops done right now. We will eventually, but I am not good at being patient!!!
