Tackle-It Tuesday, Mini Kitchen Makeover Part 1

Are you ready for a mini Kitchen Makeover?? I am!

For the last week and a half I’ve been planning for a kitchen makeover this weekend. Yesterday I actually began putting that plan in action by going to the hardware store and buying paint!! Picking paint colors is always a lot of fun, but this time it was real quick and easy since I took a picture and a kitchen valance with me for comparison, and since I found three of the colors I needed all on one color card. Suh-weet! So that was the first step and now there’s more to do.

The "bright white" on the end is actually a soft ivory, the same color as the mat on the picture. The beige is what will eventually be going in the living room.

Today’s tackle is to get all our chores done and then clear the baskets of supplies and things off the back of the washer and dryer so we can switch out the washer tonight when Big Daddy gets home. We found the washer we have now for free on Freecycle about a year ago, but it has stopped spinning at the end of the cycle and the clothes come out too wet. We may have been able to fix it, but a friend was moving and selling his washer cheap so Hubs bought that one instead.

So my goal today is to get everything ready and make that happen tonight so that I can catch up on laundry before the weekend when we have family here and we’re busy working on the makeover.

Next week, Part 2 of the Mini Kitchen Makeover, I’ll get to show you the finished product!!!

(P.S. – In the meantime you can cast your vote about which set of dishes you like the best with my coffee themed kitchen!)

Good luck with your redo. I can’t wait to see the end result. Oh, and I vote on the second set of dishes (the red ones). 🙂
