New Kitchen

The last week or so has been spent redoing my kitchen! We have been in our house over 6 years, and it hasn't been updated since the day we moved in. We had never painted either, so you can only imagine how bad the "white" walls looked! We were almost to the point that we were embarassed by how bad it was looking. So, now not only did we paint, but I got some new decorations, hung a curtain, and my MIL has promised me a couple of paintings to finish it off! Once the paintings are hung, my new kitchen will be complete!!

This is one of the plates that is hanging in a plate rack over the doorway. It's from my Mama! Do you think she likes my cooking?!!?
Here's the view of the doorway. That's the trio of plates above the door. The thing to the left is a little chalkboard.

These are my canisters. I got them when we got married and they go perfectly with the new decor!

I love my new "Kitchen" sign! It hangs over the doorway going into the kitchen from my laundry room.
This is what is on top of one side of the cabinets.
This is what is on top of the other side of the cabinets and on top of the refrigerator. My favorite is the big pear that I found at Hobby Lobby!
This is my new centerpiece for my kitchen table.
Here is the complete nook, minus the two pictures from my MIL. They are going to go on either side of the trio picture. Excuse the wrinkles in the curtain. I was too excited to take pictures and I hadn't taken it down to iron yet. I love my red wall!!

I hope you all like my new kitchen!! It's so exciting to have it complete and to have something that I'm proud for people to see!
I hope you all had a great weekend! I have several posts coming this week, so stay tuned!

Your kitchen is adorable. I love your window treatment on that gorgeous red wall--which seems to be the perfect shade of red, by the way. Thanks for sharing with us!
