I have to admit that even though the
kitchen was very outfitted with 60’s
vinyl flooring, avocado green
laminate and floral wallpaper. Coach
and I found it quirky and charming.
And though I enjoyed day dreaming
about new floors and countertops, it’s
no secret that we thought our little
kitchen was adorable, just the way it
was! The 1960’s General Electric stove
was still in perfect working condition.
However, during the fire renovation,
the opportunity presented itself to replace
the floors, countertops and backsplash.
We also decided to give everything a
fresh coat of paint , add a diswasher,
disposal and under counter lights.
Keeping with our black and white color
scheme we chose commercial (VCT)
vinyl composition tiles, laid n a
diagonal, large scale checkerboard.
For the backsplash, we selected white
subway tiles from Home Depot with
dark grey grout and Wilsonart Oiled
Soapstone laminate for the countertops.
With a fresh coat of white oil based paint
on the kitchen cabinets, new knobs, grey
chalkboard walls Behr Dark Ash, flat
over Benjamin Moore’s oil based primer,
Fresh Start (rolled over the wallpaper) ,
the kitchen took on a whole new, yet
Cute and affordable, I love cooking in
this kitchen! A big fan of Chip and Joanna
Gaines, and their popular, Waco Texas,
based TV show, Fixer Upper. I love to
imagine what walls they would have
torn out and all the cool things they
would have done but truthfully, I am
very grateful for not only our updated
kitchen but for the entire, newly
renovated and much improved house.
