things are happening in my kitchen...


I have this 30year old hardwood kitchen, and started to give it a make over some time ago. So today I just will show some before pictures...




It's big. Its airy... but....
the wood is faded, one of the glassdoors is broken, blue tiles, ugly countertops...




Did you see that one of the shelves under the cabinets is shorter than the cabinet ontop? Weird.



I have not a lot to spent right now, so the makeover will mainly involve painting...
Question: should I paint the timberwork (ceiling) aswell?

a little peek:





Eg har begynnt å maler kjøkkenet... Ska eg mala bjelkene i taket, og?

oi oi oi, kan tenke meg det blir lyst og flott!! Blir spennende å se resultatet!

Jeg snes absolutt du burde male bjelkene hvite, det ville blitt mere helhet over det. Vi satt til og med falske bjelker på nytt gipstak vi, er jo så sjarmerende. Kikker du på bloggen vil du se det på på bildene av stuen :)

I think it will look very good white! I would love a large kitchen like that with my six children, ages 8 months to 12 years. I will be sure to stop by here again.
Blessings again from Seattle.
