My goodness I have not been on the blogging scene lately.
I have been very busy though and thought I would share my shabby kitchen redo.
Here it is "after"......
Here is the before. I have to thank so many bloggers for being so inspirational to me. I have wanted a "white" kitchen for several years now. Some of the few that especially inspired me were....
The three blogs that really inspired me were...
They all had that pop of turquoise that I loved.
Now for the "before". It wasn't that it was a "bad" kitchen. I did love it at one time, I was just ready for a change.
I am so loving my white kitchen now!
I love having the pop of color with the turquoise on the island.
My husband cut out the centers of two sets of cabinets so I could add chicken wire for more of a farmhouse feel.
Tracey from French Larkspur made a centerpiece for her table which I shamelessly copied, she was gracious enough to say it was ok. Thank you for the inspiration, Tracey!
I knew this vintage and shabby turquoise scale would be perfect in my newly painted kitchen.
More vintage goodies in the corner.
I started to distress the cabinets, I haven't finished this part yet.
I hope you have enjoyed my new kitchen. I still plan on adding some knobs and a chandelier over the sink.
I did use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White and for the island I mixed that with a turquoise chalk paint (I am unsure of the name).
I will be sharing my shabby French Christmas decorations soon!
Happiest of Holidays to you.
