I Think I May be Falling in Love...With My Kitchen!

That is a statement that I NEVER thought would ever cross these Chapstick laden lips.  (Ok...I actually use this.)

When I first took over moved into this house (Handsome Husband has lived here for 10 years) I thought that the kitchen was hell in a hand basket completely unworkable.  There isn't a whole lot of counter space, the walls and cupboards were a HORRIBLE yellowish color with matching tile, and the countertop was white with gold flecks.  Nothing meshed and all the bad points were highlighted.

So...Spring Break of 2011 was spent frolicking in the sun and having fun.  Wait...I don't think I'm remembering that correctly.  OH YEAH!  My mom and I spent the majority of the week holed up in the kitchen painting walls, trim, tile and cupboards.  Wonders upon turned out beautifully!

Yellow, yellow everywhere.
Couldn't for the life of me get this to rotate...sorry mom.  You're floating.

This is an "after" shot.  The microwave began its journey on the top of the cart.  It ended its journey underneath so that I could use the CUTTING BOARD as a CUTTING BOARD!  Novel idea, I know.  I need all the prep space I can get!

Here is what it looks like now:

This is my favorite part!  My cookbook nook.

My kitchen has actually become "workable" space!  Who'd've thunk??

P. S.  This is a double post day because I didn't post yesterday AND I got some new treasures today!
