A {Subtle} Kitchen Makeover

Hello, dear readers! Sorry I’ve been pretty MIA this month, but this spring has been a doozie. I’ve travelled a lot (you might have heard that my sweet Grandmother Dorothy passed away a few weeks ago), and I’ve been working hard on that list of goals for 2015.

I finally have my garden up and running, so you can expect a post on that soon, as well as some reviews of my favorite books I’ve read so far this year.

But for now – a kitchen makeover!

My kitchen wasn’t in horrible shape or anything, it mostly needed a fresh coat of paint, and some actual thought applied to what was on the walls. Here’s the before:

Not too bad, just a little boring…
