This is the first time I've compared the before and after pictures of the kitchen, and I've known it was a big change but I don't think I realized it was that big of a change. I had already taken off most of the hardware when I remembered to take before pictures, so here's what it looked like:
And this is what it looks like now:
Yea!! :) The kitchen won't be completely finished for awhile...I still have to put stuff on the walls and figure out what kind of curtains to put on the window (suggestions anyone?? I've never put curtains in a kitchen and I'm lost...I don't want to block out any light, and I want something with pattern). But regardless, I'm still really enjoying how much cleaner it feels, and just the fact that all the painting and hardware replacing is done.
So as far as painting goes, the kitchen is done and the living room is done (I finally got the 2nd coat on the walls last Friday)...2 rooms down, 4 1/2 to go! The dining room, both bedrooms, the hallway, and the half is for the 2nd coat of green in the bathroom. Hopefully more progress and pictures coming soon!
