Kitchen

A few people have asked to see pictures of my kitchen. So here it is in all it's glory. :) It does not have the floors, cabinets, or countertops I would have chosen but I am still very grateful for what I have. The only thing we did when we moved in was paint, change the chandelier, and buy a fridge. We went with stainless with the intentions of upgrading our microwave, stove and dishwasher in time. The sink is already stainless. I don't do as much cooking in there as I (or Cody) would like but it gets plenty of baking time! Enjoy the photos.

I bought this chandelier at a flea market before we were married because it was such a great deal. That was over 4 years ago and it has been in both of our homes. It has special light bulbs so thankfully (and amazingly) they have not gone out.

Let me know if any of you post about your kitchen. I love seeing them!

Shannon, your kitchen is great! LOVE that chandelier. It is exactly what I was hunting for a few months back. :o) I wish I would have been so lucky to move into a house with a kitchen that looked as good as yours!

It's so pretty! I especially love the cabinet in your eating area. We have very similar taste.

Thanks for sharing!

What a sweet kitchen! I really like your dark (black?) chairs that you have around the table. I don't think I've posted my whole kitchen yet. Maybe I'll do that today...or soon. I do have lots of pictures taken in my kitchen...anything with turquoise walls.

I got that frame at a craft fair but I have seen similar ones at Gordman's and Kirklands. The more expensive ones are at gift shops. Thanks!

Hey Shannon!
I was so excited to see your "kitchen" post today. I love your kitchen! I love the bookshelf/cabinet in there. The tassel looks like it is from the "Nester." Where did you find the big picture frame with the saying? I love it. Okay, I am going to go since I have completely embarrassed myself gushing over your kitchen.
Thanks!

Gorgeous kitchen! Sadly, until we redo our kitchen, it's the most hated room in the house. Hopefully within one year, I'll have my lovely kitchen I'm dreaming of. :)

I posted your url, but I can't figure out how to link so that ppl can just click on your name.

Your kitchen looks so great! I love how you have decorated it...looks so cozy and inviting. I love the chandelier (and the beaded garland on it), the "Chocolat" prints, and the paint color! Oh, and I noticed your Sunbeam mixer...that has been on my birthday list all year!

Oh I love your kitchen, you have a great eye! My cabinets and floors aren't what I would pick either but I make them work too! Yours are much better than mine for sure!
