Okay....so Kelly's Korner is hosting a "Show Us Where You Live Friday", and this is the first week! This week is kitchens....so we all have to show off our kitchens. Please visit Kelly's Blog, she is an absolute doll, and so is her precious daughter Harper!
Anyways....here is my kitchen. It was the one thing that I really did not like about our house when we bought it 18 months ago. I love the size and the cabinets are very well custom made, but I was not too fond of the color of the cabinets...or the bland tile....or the bland counters. I am still deciding as to whether I want to paint the cabinets antique white or sand and restain them darker. We are also about to get all new stainless steel appliances to match the fridge and are currently looking for a commercial grade gas range....can't wait for that! Once we decide on what we are going to do with the cabinetry, we will pick out granite and new backsplash and new flooring, and the farmhouse sink that I have always wanted. My kitchen is BLAND! I love being "gawdy" with patterns. My curtains are a Waverly's Ballad Bouquet fabric in Sepia, and my dining chairs are covered in a green and red toile ( I LOVE toile!), and my desk chair is another Waverly floral print. Plus, my leopard print jute rug. This kitchen is our next BIG project!

This is the butler's pantry that also leads into the garage....and our little memo board where my Maddie drew a pic on yesterday, and it also holds our keys, etc. and we can leave each other notes and reminders (gotta love Southern Living at Home):
