When we were originally looking at homes online, I skipped over this one.
One of the reasons were these cabinets. The color threw me off.  
 I still don't like it. It just seems an odd color for cabinets...possibly a good color for a barn though. The walls are sort of a creamy yellow. It is actually kind of a pretty color, but not my style and just painted really badly.
 It's possible that the microwave and oven were original to the house...I think that's the last time the oven had been cleaned too.
 The dishwasher was pretty old too and the rust stains at the base told of a leak...
 I love the granite counter tops and the huge sink with the beautiful window overlooking the deck outside. At our last house I was looking at an old air conditioner while I did the dishes.
The fridge was missing parts, so we planned on replacing it with my mother's old fridge. When that didn't work we went ahead and replaced all the old appliances with new white ones. 
Above is the set up the previous owners had. That's a curtain chilling out in the middle of the window, help up by a shower curtain rod and a bunch of strings looped through hooks around the window. I have no idea what was going on there. The window does get some insane morning sun, so we will need to put blinds up.

To Do:
Replace Appliances
Repair problem with cabinet wall housing the Dishwasher
HOPEFULLY repaint cabinets - white
Paint walls - really depends on if we CAN repaint the cabinets
Purchase and hang blinds in window
Repaint walls
Ultimately I would like a new backsplash, but that probably won't be anytime soon.


  1. I really love those red cupboards, they look fantastic!

  2. Good luck with all the work on the house! Not a fun project, but worth it when its all over!
