Here's my goal list of what I want to do:
Paint all the cabinets white. A beautiful bright white.
Put on all new black hardware everywhere.
Put some shelves next to the sink window so I can grow some fresh herbs.
Figure out a better way to store all of my random appliances (like the mixer, toaster, blender, and food processor).
Put up some beautiful window treatments.
Long term goals would be getting all new cabinets and getting a granite countertop. But that's not in the budget for a LONG time, so I'm looking to do what I can for cheap. I mean seriously cheap.
For this post, I kinda want to focus on my dream window treatments. I found this website my friend posted on Facebook that I'm really liking right now. It's called Houzz.com. They had a post a little while ago all about window treatments and I just love these ones!
This above one would be for my sink window. I have been leaning toward more reds and browns in my kitchen, so I think these colors would look really nice, too.
This would be for my "dining room" window. I love the floor to ceiling look of these curtains. I'd just change the color, of course. Probably to something deep red or brown. I'm not sure.
Anyway, keep posted and I'll keep you updated on what we decide! I think I'll start out my list by painting the cabinets and getting new hardware. Then I'll hit my favorite fabric store -- Home Fabrics -- for some fun fabrics for curtains. Now, if only I could figure out a way to tie in the counter top with the white cabinets so it doesn't look horrible while we're waiting to put in granite...Any ideas?
