Our home renovation stage 1 - DIY kitchen makeover

May 26, 2010 1 min read 0 Comments

And about time too I hear you say! Now of course, this 'little' makeover took much longer than first thought, but I'm so happy with the result it really doesn't matter. The whole room is much lighter and brighter, and so much nicer to work in. I still get a little thrill when I walk into the room, and yes, I can still, on occasion, be found just sitting and admiring my handiwork!

So this post doesn't become too long and cumbersome, I'll show you all the pretty pictures today, and tomorrow I'll go into the DIY nitty-gritty for anyone who's interested. So without any further ado.....it now looks like this..

So, bit of an improvement don't you think? My only regret is that I lived with the horrible 'before' version for so long. But be warned, this is just the start of a renovation blitz! I have big plans, very big plans. So stick around and come along for the ride - should be fun!

Hampton's style is still as popular as ever, and here in Australia we've embraced it whole-heartedly. There have been some stunning examples here in Brisbane, and I think it takes it to a whole new level when it's a Hamptons/Queenslander fusion - taking the best of both styles and merging them into the perfect example of style and practicality.
