before and after
i came across these pictures the other day. they are from the first home my husband and i bought together. the first picture is of our kitchen the way it was when we moved in (minus a very floral wallpaper that i had already removed before the picture was taken) and the second picture was after we did some small improvements. ooh, ooh this could be a game! how many changes can you spy?

crown molding above cabinets & window. New barstool at island. New knobs on cabinets + beadboard trim on cabinets. New counter tops! That was kind of fun. I need your help! If I send you pictures of my house, will you decorate it for me? Sincerely, need inspiration in Florida.

All the changes are great, but my favorite is the crown molding...or is it the beadboard? hmmm... can't decide. It looks like you made it a place where everyone wanted to be.
