Kitchen Makeover

Morning lovelies,

When we moved into our house it was like a 1930s museum: bright red woodwork, crazy floral wallpaper and old bakelite light switches.  For the first three months from when we bought the house we had to live at my parents whilst we had the electric and plumbing ripped out and completely redone.

Given that our money was used up taking care of the things that needed to be done, there wasn't enough left to have our kitchen done at the time.  Although it was mustard yellow, it worked and having two small children only 20 months apart in age, the thought of not having a kitchen for weeks just wasn't a possibility.  So for three years we carried on with our Miss Marple themed kitchen.

Three years later, we had finally saved up enough to bite the bullet and get the last reminder of a bygone era removed.  You know, I've never designed a kitchen before, you have to make so many decisions, something I'm not a big fan of.

Anyway, after 9 weeks without a kitchen we're really happy with our bright, modern result.  I think you'll agree it makes the room look so much bigger and fresh.  Just putting the pictures next to each other makes me wonder how we lived with  our mustard museum for so long!

Have a great weekend!
