Kitchen Makeover

I told you all awhile back that I was working on redoing the kitchen in a red, white, and blue theme. Before the makeover, I had a bunch of lighthouse and beachy stuff in the kitchen. I've been collecting lighthouses for years and quite frankly, I'm sick of them. I only have two before pictures.

Our kitchen and dining room are one room basically and the dining room has french doors that open to our deck. (That I love.)

After pictures....

My mommy made these place mats.

I got this runner for $4 on clearance after the 4th of July.

I love this picture. It's not obnoxious red, white, and blue. I think it has just the right amount. And these sconces I painted silver. Did you know that on all of the internet, you can't buy silver sconces?

New globe lights my little brother put up.
The old ones were gold and ugly.
Not sure what I was watching on TV.

New hanging light my brother put up.
Again, the old one was gold, ugly, and not centered on the table.

Stove and stuff. We put new drawer pulls on the drawers to go with the new silver motif.

Found these on clearance.

Clearance

Notice the curtains match the placemats?

French doors to the deck

Clearance

We are getting a stainless steel or stainless steel look a like refrigerator in the spring.

Corner shelf deal

My favorite decoration on the corner shelf.

The boys helping me take pictures.


Also, awhile back I won a bracelet and key chain made from 550 cord from Reina at Semper Gumby... The Return of Sunshine. Matt used my set of keys shortly after and said, "Hey that's 550 cord! Where did you get that?" My response, "Don't worry about it." Thanks again Reina!

VERY cute! I was originally going to do red white and blue in my kitchen too but decided that red white and black went better with the things I already have so Im working on that...slowly but surely

Love it! I've been collecting red/white/blue things too for my kitchen to redecorate in our next home... I have a few of the things you have there, too! My favorite being the American flag heart. Super cute!
