Working on My Kitchen

When we bought this trailer, we knew that the kitchen would probably be the biggest job.  It was old. It was worn. It was DIRTY!

Most of the cupboards and drawers were chipped and in horrible need of repair.  So we took all of the drawers and the doors back to Karen's where Michael worked on them for several weeks.  When he returned them, I was totally amazed.  There was one area that was damaged but couldn't be removed to be fixed so we had to paint over it.  This is what everything would have looked like if not for Michael and his skills.

This is what the finished products looked like after he puttied, sanded, primed and painted all of the drawers and cupboard doors.
So, began the job here at the house.  We had to prime the whole kitchen then we put the final enamel coat on everthing that hadn't been taken to Karen's. 

Once we had it all painted with the doors and cupboards back on, it actually looked pretty good.
But Karen, my designer still had plans for the kitchen.  Adding an accent color. So, today, I got to work at painted the accent color.  

So, I still need to add a curtain to the window,  some decorations, maybe paint the door or get a new one and yes, get a new floor!!
We have picked out a wood flooring and are now planning on getting it done soon.  This is sure a far cry from the filthy kitchen that I walked into in April. Lots of work, but so worth it.

Wow, that's an amazing improvement! Love the added color too, just the touch it needed to brighten it up.

Agreed, the accent color just pops (that's what they say on HGTV)

Love the color! You guys are working so hard and fast on the your place. Wish we had that kind of progress around here! Glad you are getting settled and comfortable.

Your kitchen walls are the same as my kitchen walls. Looks good!!

What are your counter tops made of?
My counter tops are still in the family room waiting for somebody to install them.
