Todd and I had some great friends over to help install our "new" upper cabinets! You can read about that adventure here. Because we reconfigured some of our upper cabinets, we had a lot of spackling and wall repair to do where the old upper cabinets were! I have found that I hate spackling. A lot.
After a week of spackling, the walls were smooth once again. I painted the kitchen with Lowe's Valspar Signature paint in Cream in My Coffee, satin finish. I love that paint color name.
I added a new vent cover, new electrical plates and painted the trim behind the fridge. (The rest of the trim will be done at a later date.) We rolled out the old white fridge, I scrubbed all the brown sticky stains off and I painted it stainless steel. I found this awesome appliance paint from Rust-o-leum that includes real stainless steel in it. The fridge came out looking great!
I had some left over so I also painted the exhaust hood over the stove.
Doesn't it look much better? It looks brand new with the exception of the dent at the top.
Before we rolled the fridge back in the fridge space, we decided to redo the floor with vinyl peel-and-stick tiles that were less than a dollar each! We just tiled over the existing vinyl tile and it took us about half an hour to do this small section because nothing was square! Sometime after the wedding, we will complete the rest of the floor.
Although not perfect, it is still a vast improvement!
