Welcome to Our Home! This is the #firstimpressions you will see as you walk through our front door. Very casual. Our Main floor is not very big, but I try to make it welcoming for all who enter. Our home has evolved over the past 19 years with things new and old. We all would like to make changes to our home and to keep it updated when our budget allows us to. But for now, I “Love the Home I Have!”
My goal this year is to replace the carpet and vinyl flooring to make this first floor one continual space. My husband and I have talked about removing this wall so we can make the kitchen a little larger.
We had updated our kitchen about 12 years ago. The blue tiled walls were new before we moved in about 7 years before that. They may be even making a comeback by now. LOL! Even if it’s not, we are keeping the tile. At the time of our kitchen updating, we had replaced the cabinet doors from those white laminate doors with the oak wood trim at the very bottom of them. But, since we weren’t going to change the cabinets, we just chose basic oak doors to match. I’m thinking of painting them gray to brighten up the kitchen. What do you think?? I did try to freshen the cabinets up about a year and a half ago with new stainless hardware. At the time of our kitchen update, we also added new laminate counter tops and the island. Our intentions for the future are to replace the counter tops again and add more counter and cabinet space to the island.
This is our every day Dining space that takes up the other half of our kitchen. Off to the left side of this space is our Sun Porch which I will be sharing with you all another time. Thank you for stopping by! I have plenty more to share with you soon!
