I’m Dreaming…Of A Kitchen Redo!!

Hello my bloggerette friends.  How are ya’ll? Hope you are doing great.

I’m so excited to tell you that in the next few weeks I will be remodeling my kitchen with the help of my two volunteers (that is my son-in-law and husband) who are both quite handy. Although, they are not carpenters they have both done their share of carpentry projects and I have faith they can achieve the goals I have set. (If not they will never hear the end of it, I promise). Lol, just kidding, maybe.


Thanks to Pinterest I can share some of my ideas with you.  I have a dream of mixing a little vintage with a little French country. 


I’m totally loving both of the above kitchens.  The main thing I like in the first one is the apron sink, which you will see in most  of these pictures, in the bottom one it is the finish and wood details that I love and I will incorporate both in my little kitchen.

I will share the before of my kitchen in a couple of days you will see it is stuck somewhere in the early 1990”s or is that green from the late 1980’s? In love


In this picture I’m just drooling over the island with the skirt of metal work and if and when I can find some similar zinc I plan on making one. I also like the faucet and lighting. Are you starting to see where I'm going with my plan?


The next thing I really want are dark wood countertops! I just love them but the ones I really want are very expensive because, I of course, have champagne taste on a cheap wine budget! I will be sharing with you how we get very close to the same look at a fraction of the cost.


Don’t you just love this kitchen? The chandeliers, the apron sink, the pretty green metal stools, and the beautiful vent over the stove, oh my! sigh.


I also like this vintage, rustic kitchen. I’m loving the bar with its chippy finish. Also, those ceiling tiles! Wouldn't I love to find enough of those to cover my ceiling? Yes!

Here is another one with the apron sink and I love the hardware and the shelf above the windows.


In this picture I love everything but I’m sharing it mainly for the glass cabinet doors.  I’m hoping I can incorporate some into my kitchen. 

Well those are my inspiration pictures.  I’m hoping to get a kitchen with a mix of the design elements I shared above on a budget of $3,000.  This will include flooring, countertops, a new refrigerator, and a new apron sink.  I don’t want much do I? lol
I hope you will join me in the headaches and the fun because I really will want your advice and input as I go along.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great weekend. Princess

A lot of these pics remind me of Paula Deen furniture, which is just gorgeous in my opinion. Two thumbs up!

Some absolutely beautiful inspiration! Love them all, but favor the last one, love glass in a kitchen. I wish you luck on your kitchen, and on a very small budget, but somehow I think you'll be able to do it. I'll be watching! Thanks for sharing your creative inspirations at Sunday's Best.

That's a lot of inspiration. I can't wait to follow you on your kitchen remodel. Love those.

We had one of those metal tables in the top pic when I was a kid. I don't have anywhere for one to go now but I've always dreamed of having one on a screen in back pork. Perfect for enjoying family meals and running watermelon on.
