Let the renovation begin…

I cannot believe I am posting pictures of my kitchen in this disastrous state!  The things you do for a blog.  I am also the world’s worst photographer.  I apologize in advance for the crappy photos.  My husband Paul and I decided that our kitchen needed a little face lift.  We love our Cloverdale bungalow, but the kitchen needed major help.  We were lucky that our cabinets were in great shape, and only need a fresh coat of paint.  The layout is long and narrow, so we wanted to paint it a warm cream, and make it feel more open and airy.  The counters and back-splash are coming out, and being replaced with Alabama White marble, and classic white subway tile.  Here are some embarrassing sneak peaks of the before…don’t laugh.

Would anyone like to come organize my cabinets? So embarrassing!!

Yes, those are Formica counters. Jealous?

We do love our antler chandelier. The only decent thing in our kitchen at the moment.

I hope our neighbors don't move, due to lack of window privacy.

The black on the cabinets is beyond bad. That needs to go ASAP!

Do you feel sorry for me yet?  The painters are starting today.  Mark and Mike are wonderful!  I will post progress pictures as the renovation continues.  We are so excited.  Don’t forget our Cloverdale studio and Parish opening is this Friday from 4-7.  We look forward to seeing all of you there!  Oh and one more thing, ROLL TIDE!!!!
