What's Cookin'?

I really hate my kitchen.  Take a look... (Don't mind the kiddos hangin' out.  I was trying to keep them busy with snacks while I took the pic.)

Don't get me wrong, it could be worse.  It's a good size with a functional layout and oodles of storage.  However, I despise the orangey-oak cabinets and the busy laminate countertops.  Here are kitchens that I enjoy looking at...

Brown Design: lots of molding, contrast and textures similar layout to ours...totally doable

Marin Kitchen Company: so airy and bright

DecorPad:  white, grey and dainty

So, the whites have it.  Our cabinet doors are coming down this weekend in preparation for a budget-friendly facelift.  We may be seeing the contents of our cabinets for a few weeks, but that's okay.  We're not hosting Thanksgiving.


  1. Just popping in to say HAPPPPY BIRTHDAY! Your cute hubby told us it was your big day today so we wanted to wish you all the best! And happy blogging...

  2. Those are some great home decor items! I would love to do my kitchen in that kind of design. Especially the hardwood floor, I really need to get rid of my tile.
