Operation Kitchen Update

Before
After (For now)
Stage 1 of Operation Kitchen Update is almost complete. The walls are painted, and the lights over the island are up. No more florescents, YAY! (Please don't send me comments about florescents being better for the environment. You are welcome to have as many of those things in your house as you want to.) You can't really see the wallpaper in the "before" photo, but it was white with little blue flowers. Very early 1990s. The only pieces left in the first stage are to install the under cabinet lighting and to find and install a fixture over the table.

Stage 2 will be floors, and then stage 3 will be countertops and backsplash. There might be a stage 4 at some point to replace the cabinets on the left side of the photo with something more functional, but we'll see. For now I'm just happy that we don't have blue flowers on the walls any more. The blue and beige laminate on the floor is another story. :)

Love the kitchen "update". However did you figure out how to do the lights??? Never would have thought it. Love the kitchen table. You missed the curtains that matched the wallpaper. I should have saved them for you!
