Making Plans

I’m starting to make plans for a few updates in the kitchen.  Here is what I won’t be changing: the floors, the counter tops and the appliances.What else is there, you say? Well, let me just fill you in:

I will be painting the walls, painting the cabinets, painting the buffet, adding hardware, shifting cabinets, bringing in a marble element, changing light fixtures and shelving…. It’s actually A LOT.

I’m on a tight budget and can’t do it all at once either, so the project will be broken down into lots of little tasks, the first of which is to paint the walls. I’d like to share a kitchen renovation from Cottage Living’s December 2008 issue, that has been haunting me for just that long. It’s pretty much exactly what I’d like my kitchen to look like someday. The floor plan is so similar to mine, and all of the changes seem so do-able, and not to expensive. It’s too bad CL has been out of business for the last four years, but thank goodness the photos could still be found online!  Anne Turner Carroll, I admire your classic and cozy style.

As I said, I am starting with paint, and I’ll update you as I go! Hooray for a new project!
