I have been wanting to change the counter tops and back splash for a long time.
Well the back splash is done...counters...not so much yet:)
Here is a close up of the tile we used... it is the same tile and grout we used in the bathroom.
If you would like information on them go to the bathroom post HERE.
Above is one view of the kitchen ... the tile back splash makes such a big difference in the kitchen. To the left, on the lower shelves are some glass canisters that I used chalk board paint on ... so I could label them and I finally hung a vintage slate chalkboard that I found a while back. It is hanging on the side of the island...as if you could have missed it LOL :)
Apparently I like the color green:)
Above is another view of the kitchen. The light fixture and island stools are a new addition.
You might have noticed ...I also have a thing for cutting boards:)
On the island , In the $1 gravy boat from the Christmas tree shop holds some cut lemon balm from my yard.
Here in the $1 creamer ... again from the Christmas tree shop, is some juniper from my front yard. I have never brought the juniper in before. It is a very pretty green and seems to hold up well inside , in some water . Ok I will admit it , the olive tree is not real ... but I think its cute (mostly because I can't kill it:)
Here is a third view of the kitchen. If your wondering what is behind the curtain ... keep wondering;) no no ... I am just kidding. It is my laundry room. I would like to eventually put frosted french doors there. I would eventually like to do a lot of things. Finish the painting in my bathroom, finish my dining room, replace the counters in my kitchen... you see where i'm going with this, not enough energy or money. Am I the only one that tortures themselves like this?
Here is a closer look at the island stools. I got them at a really good price on HauteLook. I can't remember what I paid .... but it was a steal.
I hope you enjoyed looking around at the small progress my kitchen has made. I enjoyed showing you:)
