Kitchen Remodel

We’ve been in our house for over a year now and there’s still so much work to be done until I feel it really captures our style (okay, mostly mine but The Husband’s totally okay with all my cutesy decor as long as I make sure to include some baseball stuff. And I have, voluntarily.) and feels more updated.

The biggest eyesore is our 1950s kitchen enveloped in knotty pine. It couldn’t be more outdated than if I were taking a horse and carriage to work.

Check out Interior Designer, Erinn Valencich’s Kitchen. (I also discussed Erinn here).

We both live in the same area and her kitchen layout was identical to mine until she made some changes.

Sometimes people have a difficult time envisioning what our kitchen would look like sanding away the knotty pine, but these images should help a ton.

So much brighter and cheerier. If you look closer you can see the before picture up on the top right.

    The color scheme for this kitchen would absolutely be my dream kitchen. Its beautiful. I have definitely seen the light with all that could be done with yours, but I still like the knotty pine. What can I say I am a sucker for the 50’s. But Erinn Valencich’s kitchen has such a great throwback feel anyway. Great find Irene
