Here's what my kitchen used to look like. I liked it (when it was clean like this), and the Cheetos-orange suited my quirky style.
But I had a catastrophe with honey fudge last year and ruined my stove cook top. Then, a few weeks ago, the dishwasher broke down, and Tom couldn't fix it.
So, we decided it was time for a change. While I was on my girls' weekend trip to Galena, Tom repainted everything in the kitchen and dining room grey. Then, as an early Christmas present for each other, we got new appliances. Here's the new look:
We still have to pick up a new microwave, because the door on ours doesn't always close, so that will be stainless too eventually. I love the new look. I may even have to cook!
