Looking back

Can I just have you stare in amazement with me, for a sec?

I was looking through old photos, and found the "before" picture of my kitchen.


I'm still in disbelief that there were actually pink countertops at one point. And ORANGE cabinets!

I sent it to Mr. Goats, asking if he could believe that it used to look like that, and he wanted one of it now... So the right side is my kitchen as of about 3 minutes ago (remember, I don't clean for close friends! :-p).

And to think, the biggest part of this transformation was just painting the countertops (which are holding up surprisingly well after nearly 2 years!), and gel staining the cabinets. Not bad for $80!

(There was also the hinge switch, some hardware added, and a lot more procrastinated on...)


  1. That is quite a difference! I do love your countertops!

    1. Good eye! I sure did. Debated building one, but I had a perfectly good (albeit, UGLY) one right there! ;-)
