About This Space

While our kitchen wasn't very old, only 6 years, it was very dark & monochromatic and we found it a bit depressing, especially with our sometimes cloudy/rainy Northwest days. We decided we'd like to brighten it up by going off-white. While we were at it and had the place torn up, we figured we'd make other changes to reflect our likes and personalities better and how we wanted to use the space. Unfortunately, budget was a major issue and even though we're skilled bargain shoppers, we got busy holding garage sales and Craig's listing what items we didn't need in the house, as well as what we wanted to change out in the kitchen anyway {like appliances} in order to raise the money. By doing most of the work ourselves, as well, I'm proud to say we came in under $3000 and we're so pleased with the light, airy space we've created in the heart of our home -- our kitchen.
