I'm going to do this in a lot of different posts until I can show you the total transformation (because its not done yet...) and for now, we'll just start with something easy: introducing you to the kitchen.
The kitchen is a galley style kitchen, which means basically its small, and has cabinets on either side of a little aisle type thing...does that make sense? A lot of kitchens are open, or have a 'working triangle', mine does not. It has a dining area off one side, and a sort of nook off the other. Here's some pictures for reference:
This is the little nook area.
Dining room, obviously.
This shows a little of where I'm starting now, basically I've painted the walls:
I wish the pictures did that red justice. It was truly ugly. It wasn't just a deep red, it had a very purple/wine tint to it and was just so dark and unhappy. And I love red usually, but no. It just didn't work and I couldn't believe how big a difference just putting white in there did!
Okay, I'll be back soon to show you more soon!
