It was ugly. It was dark. It was soooooo not my style.
I waited two years before I did anything about it, mainly, because I was trying to decided what, exactly, I wanted to do about it.
White kitchens have ALWAYS been my undoing. I LOVE them! Every picture in Southern Living or Better Homes and Gardens that included a completely white kitchen left me salivating. The kicker for me was when I realized that a new trend is to two-tone cabinets. I knew then what I planned on doing in my kitchen.

|Kitchen! It's getting closer to completion!|
|The dining area is done!|
|Looks soooo pretty!|
|Finished finally and looking good!|
|The green and yellow cabinets are getting painted next, and I am looking for a vintagy light fixture for the dining area.|
|LOVE how the kitchen looks! So clean and sleek.|
|My living room was a disaster the entire time I was working on my kitchen.|
|More redo photos ...|
|Loving the fresh, clean lines that this new look gives my kitchen.|
|That's the next project ... repainting that cabinet white and gray .|
|And finding a new light fixture ... I HATE that thing!!!|
