There are two rooms in my house that make me want to cry at times in frustration. The kitchen and the bathroom. Although my bathroom would benefit from a complete overhaul, my kitchen deserves the most love by far, having not been decorated since we were married way back when in Once Upon A Time land.
I’ve decided by Christmas that it will be revamped and look somewhat nicer than the room I’m currently too ashamed to post on my own blog. If you’re curious as to why it’s so bad, just imagine pink and green paint with peach and cream tiles. Mmmm. Yes.
Our kitchen is also very tiny and so I’m trying to make it as light and open as I can and in order to achieve maximum capacity I’ve actually removed the kitchen door as we never use it. Sounds odd I’m sure but the only time we’ve ever closed it has been to either contain or prevent Messrs. Casanova and Excalibur the huskies from gaining access or exiting to freedom!
My next step is to paint it all white. My husband rolls his eyes whenever I tell him my decorating plans because he knows the real amount of work involved whereas I see the end vision in my head and want to do it all at once. My aim is for a white kitchen with a huge framed chalkboard wall, and then I’ll take it from there with my white canvas. There’s no way I’ll be posting before pictures on here, but I might get brave enough to post them on our Facebook page – you can check on our progress there!
For now, I’m gathering my resources, plotting…and mostly sanding. It’s a fantastic workout, even if it does require a sweaty face mask and constant vacuuming afterwards.
Have any of you got plans for a room in your house before Christmas? I’d love some inspiration!
