Nothing creative to share today but I said I would show a few pics of our new kitchen and now that I can upload them, here they are.
The BEFORE shot...  

The kitchen we inherited when we moved in.  Pretty old and falling apart (none of the doors closed properly and I hated the floor and wall tiles!) BUT at least it was clean and tidy.  I painted the walls before any work started, one because originally it was bright, bright yellow and two to hopefully save a bit of time when the new kitchen was fitted..

We thought we'd be OK on the electrics front, just a few sockets to be moved but once the kitchen was out, we found wires coming out of everywhere and these all had to be taken sorted.  We needed a few more sockets added and a new lighting fitted so this took a while and slowed things down bit.


I wanted a painted wood finish in cream and this one suited perfectly.  
I just LOVE the whole thing, especially my new range cooker. 

My sewing machine got some use too when I made the Roman blind for the kitchen window in material to match wallpaper I am using on one wall in the dining room which opens out from the kitchen so it all ties in together.

Catch up with you soon, thanks for popping in to see me.


  1. Wow Zoe, that is a beautiful kitchen. I love the open feel to it. Just gorgeous !!!
