The Kitchen Reveal

I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that James and I were giving the kitchen a makeover.
I had thought it would be a quick revamp but, as we all know, things always take longer than expected!
We have been so busy I forgot to share the result with you all! Silly me! (if you need a reminder of the 'before' click here)

The entire kitchen was repainted, it really needed freshening up and perfecting the finish of the room took some time!
We painted white on the ceiling, coving and skirting and Laura Ashley Duck Egg on the walls, I love the colour!
We added some retro looking accessories. Metal wall plaques, a new, red clock and finally hung the fabulous shelf I bought from Vintage Amethyst to hang my CK mugs from.
James even put up the new light!!
I am soooo pleased with the result.
All we need is a new blind!










What do you think?

Lots of Love

Very nice Kelly. You have both done a great job. The shelf looks really fab.

I think that kitchen needs a candy apple red kitchen aid mixer just to set it off!
