Coming Soon to a Kitchen Near Me

When we moved into our home, 3.5 years ago, I was pregnant.
Not just pregnant - ready to pop.
In fact, my son was born a mere 4 days after we moved in.

For the first year and a half of his life I didn't do any projects. I was a stay at home mommy for the first time. I cooked, I cleaned, I took care of two little ones. I didn't have time or energy for anything else.
When I finally did decide I had the time and energy for something else, it was all outside stuff. We put our yard in ourselves, and it was a lot of work.

It's only been just over a year that I've been focusing on the inside of our home.  So I'm just now getting around to some of the things that I've wanted to do since we moved in.

My big project right now is the kitchen.
It's a decent looking kitchen, but it's very builder-basic-boring. And I want it to look more custom, more friendly, more ME :)
I have BIG plans and I'm SO excited!

Here are the BEFORE pictures of my kitchen - I took these back in November, obviously (notice the fall decor!)

Eventually I'll have a whole list of hyperlinked projects here - stay tuned for that!
First up, the back splash!
Next was an Island revamp.  See Part 1 (moving the island) here, and Part 2 (making her pretty) here.
Here are some accessory makeovers.
You can see my custom cabinet adventures here (part one) and here (part two)
And the sink/window makeover is here.

I totally know where you are! We moved into our house when I was 7 months pregnant and that was 3 1/2 years ago. I am just now feeling like I a ready to really decorate and make choices about things. y kitchen project won't happen for a while, so I can't wait to see yours!

I've got an L shaped island that I need to move (actually detach for the the long part and make it a stand alone island) your kitchen remodel has inspired me. Your kitchen looks just like mine in layout (except for the L). Can't wait to see your finished kitchen.
