Kitchen Inspiration

Happy Friday! Oh man I love Fridays. It’s actually Tuesday for me. I like to write all of the posts for the week on the weekend, and since I have a 4 day weekend, today is my last day off :(. Comment below telling me what you are doing this weekend!

This is going to be a long post so I am going to get right into it.

BUT this does has a lot of potential. Paint the cabinets, upgrade the appliances, get new decor, get rid of the curtains, upgrade the hardware, take down the existing backsplash and get a new one, take down the cabinets from the window to the left, get a new countertops, add floating shelves, and paint the walls. You now have a great kitchen.

Below are some of my favorite kitchens:

-Recommended Pieces-
If you need new cabinets, I have IKEA cabinets in my kitchen and they are awesome! They are such great quality and they will never stain. I think that it is the gloss that they put over the wood. The also close really nicely. All of this and you would not guess how inexpensive they are.
