Happy Wednesday! Today I thought would be a good a day as any to show you my kitchen. My itty bitty townhouse galley kitchen. It’s small but through the years I’ve learned to make it work for us and try to keep things as organized as possible to get the most out of it. It’s been many years since I gave this room some love and I’m itching to again change things up, but that’s for another day. Today let’s look at the before and after. This makeover was done so long ago I don’t even remember exactly how many years it’s been. These pictures were taken right after the makeover so small things have changed since, like the wall colour and the general decor but these will do to give you the idea.
Let’s look at the horrid that once was, shall we – or not!! Oh my! Those super glossy honey coloured cabinets, take them away! Look away!!
I remember spending one too many hours in the garage sanding away all the varnish and yucky stain off of these bad boys. But oh how satisfying it was once it was time to put on the crisp white paint. I choose Benjamin Moore’s Cloud White. It’s a nice bright white without too much yellow or blue.
The bright white cabinets alone made this once dark space feel twice as big, instantly – exactly what I had hoped for. We also changed out the counter tops and replaced the faucet with this sexy goose neck style, that I to this day still love so much.
I chose a white square ceramic tile with a small strip of brown squares as an accent. I think it turned out beautifully!
Well, there it is! My tiny galley kitchen that once was an ugly duckling of sorts turned into a beautiful white swan. Having done this makeover at least 9 years ago, let’s be honest I am ready for a change. I have a few major changes in mind but like I said, that is for another day and another post. 😉
Happy day to you!
