Kitchen Re-do

I have not been a good blogger lately. I stink, actually. We have just been extremely busy here in the Slaughter house. Matt has been gone for two days in Arkadelphia for the state golf tournament with his team. Also, I've been writing a lot AND we are re-doing our kitchen. Huge project. From the first moment I saw my kitchen is was hate-at-first-sight. We've been here a year and are finally getting around to a make-over. Matt ripped down the yucky white, laminate backsplash and replaced with a brick colored tile. We are now working on the cabinets which is a tedious job! We are doing them in black then distressing a bit. My sweet friend, Kirsten, gave us some awesome tips. You need to visit her store, by the way!! I am absolutely loving how they are turning out so far.

Next will be repainting the kitchen walls. (The countertops will have to wait till another day.) It's still very much a work in progress, but I'll give you a little sneak peek even though it's a big mess....

Tile going up.

A little progress.

Freshly painted cabinets, just waiting the final 'seal' clear coat.

I can't wait to post pictures when it's all complete! Hopefully that will be sooner than later.
