I am almost finished painting my sunshine yellow walls to white. It's so much brighter now. Once finished with the wall I'll concentrate on the area behind the cupboards and drawers. I found pulls and knobs that I like and a butcher block counter top at Ikea for a reasonable price. I also moved my wooden armoire into the kitchen. It will now serve as my pantry. Its a large piece, I thought about selling it but I just love the solid rustic wood with wrought iron finish. So it stays and will be useful.
I am still investigating the back splash. I am not sure about that yet but will keep you fully apprised with my progress. If you have any suggestions feel free to send them my way.
