Here's some pics of the kitchen prior to our move-in.
Prior to moving in, we removed the carpet and put new tile down. Yes, we had green carpet in our kitchen, and this carpet was underneath the green.....
So, we lived with the wallpaper for a while and enjoyed the new floor. We also bought new hardware in a brushed nickel finish.
So, this is what our kitchen looked like up until last week.
We rented a wallpaper steamer from Home Depot and started peeling of the wallpaper. This is our third house to own, so we've had quite a bit of experience stripping wallpaper. Of all the methods we've tried, this was by far the easiest. Well worth the $30 rental charge, in my opinion!
When I came home from work one night, my husband had finished the kitchen and it was amazing!!!
see the dramatic before and after here.
In the next year I'd like to
- Replace the brown door to the laundry room
- Make a curtain for above the kitchen sink (something with a pop of color- probably green!)
- Paint the cabinets a creamy white
- Update the countertops
- Replace the light fixture with something more modern
