Home Improvement: The Kitchen Cabinets

Here are some kitchen photos we took a few months ago, when we saw the house for the first time.


As you can see it needed a major face lift! I think a lot of it might be original to the house, which means they're about 60 years old. Over the course of the past week, among other things Joel has done, he also painted all the kitchen cabinets inside and out and we replaced the pulls. Then I added contact paper to the inside, just for a nice clean finish. It was the first time I've ever used contact paper, and I'm not totally sure, but I think it might be love. It reminds me of the first time I held a label-maker. Suddenly, I wanted to label all things in my universe. Haha. Well, a similar feeling overcame me while working with contact paper. Hmmm... what else can I cover with this stuff?? :-) Anyway... back to the results.






Much Better!

This will hold us over until we can get new cabinets (hopefully next year). And at that point, we'll also look into installing a dishwasher (which will be welcomed to my home with trumpets and rose petals), a new countertop and sink. I can't wait! It's gonna look so good when it's done!

The kitchen floors are almost finished, too. Another major improvement! More on that next time. ;)


  1. hmmm Blue Spot likes! Looks very nice.

  2. I can totally relate to the feeling you experienced with your label maker. I'm in love with mine. I've had it since high school and I'm constantly finding new uses for it, and I get so excited each time I get to bring it out for another new project. I like the pattern on your contact paper. Very pretty!
