Our kitchen, 4 years later

One of my first big projects to post as a blogger was our remodeled kitchen.

{I totally cringe linking back to my early posts!} But I'm happy to say I'm just as crazy about the improvements we made today as I was back then.  I've tweaked a few things here and there, but for the most part I've left it alone.

Back when we remodeled, I had a newborn and a 2 year old.  I made a few meals a day of finger foods and then dinner for my husband and me.  Now...I spend SO much more time in the kitchen.  Those little babes are now growing boys who eat like growing boys!!  {And their sister follows me around like my shadow :)}

So after all the time I've spent in the kitchen, combined with my spring cleaning fever, I'm ready to make a few changes.

Nothing crazy.
Nothing major.
Just some things to freshen up the space I spend the most time in.

For starters, I plan to...
give my step stool a fresh coat of paint
add another plant or two {or maybe an herb garden?} to the windowsill
line the cabinet shelves {with a pretty color liner for the cabinets with glass fronts!}
finish reorganizing my pantry...starting with spices in mason jars like my collection of sprinkles!
rework our chalkboard into an entire chalkboard wall with a proper hanging system for artwork
get a new rug for the back door!

...and of course anything else I may think of along the way!

Keeping it real...this is what the dining room table usually looks like...

And in case you're thinking of revamping your kitchen, Home Depot has this video about updating your kitchen to get you started. :)

  1. Your kitchen looks very inviting, love the pops of color!

  2. The curtains are so sweet. Your whole kitchen is sweet! And we have that same dining room table (I feel like the majority of my friends have it, actually!). I didn't buy the matching chairs, thinking I'd find some fun ones to go with it instead. 4 years later and I have yet to find some! Have fun sprucing things up. :)

  3. I love your kitchen! And all of your photos are so sweet! =)
    Have fun sprucing up!

  4. You have a great kitchen, looks very nice!


Thanks for visiting!
