Camp Contentment – The Kitchen!

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

vintage look!

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.

Roxanne, I LOVE everything you do. This kitchen is no exception. Again, you knocked it out of the park with your creativeness.
