Our Kitchen Makeover

 Before {When we bought the house last fall}


 We used corrugated tin from an old farm building for our backsplash.

 We painted & scuffed cabinet doors & drawer fronts.

I have a lot of work to do here on the rack...but check out the missing spindles on top of the cabinets!

 My cast iron skillet {a kitchen necessity}.  On the new range. 

 New light fixtures. {& soon-to-be new window trim [ivory].}

& along with a little lovin' -every kitchen needs a cookie jar.


  1. That looks amazing! What a mega change and love all your extra touches.

  2. So cute! I love it...and I love the idea of the tin for the backsplash!

  3. Gorgeous!!! I am going to send you pictures of my house and then you will tell me how to make it fabulous...okay?!? (I have an eye for fabulousness, but am TERRIBLE at execution!)

  4. I want to paint my kitchen cabinets white SOOOO bad! This is so cute! I love your country spin on everything, I'm a farm girl too. You have a new follower and I would love if you checked out my blog =)

  5. Your kitchen is gorgeous. We are refinishing our kitchen this fall and coincidentally, the kitchen in my head is what yours is in pictures. Beautiful and so creative with the back splash!

  6. Hello there! I'm a new follower from pinterest! Saw your end table post - love the weathered look, I have the same end table but I painted mine white :)

    What color did you use for your cabinets? And what kind of paint? I think I'm going to do the same thing to mine once we move in! And did you paint the inside of the cabinets too? Not sure if people do that :)

    Excited to hear more from you! Hope we can be "bloggy friends!" :)

  10. Very nice! I am doing a tin back slpash for my wife and wonder if you have any detail pictures or advice for installing outlet coverplates? thanks

  11. It always surprises (and annoys) me when a blogger posts something then doesn't come back to check messages and answer questions.


  12. I just found this blog and have high hopes for it to continue. Keep up the great work, its hard to find good ones. I have added to my favorites. Thank You.
