The Mini Kitchen Reno - Part One

This is the space I have dreamt about since we stepped foot in our first home and I had big plans! Sadly, our budget nor my husband (Matt) tended to agree with those, so I had to get creative. I love a challenge! Especially when it is laid down by Matt and involves the words "you won't get that result with what we are prepared to spend". Ha! Yes, Matt, yes I can... It is amazing what you can achieve with a little research, the help of some knowledgeable people and a paint brush! 

The kitchen is in its final stages of completion. I am waiting for our tiles to arrive in the country before our tradie can get to work on putting those up and I am still contemplating what to do with the oven.

I took some before photos and will sneak one in below so you can see the space I am working with. It is large and light filled and for that I am so grateful! 

While I wait for those last pieces of my beautiful puzzle to come together, here is a mood board of the design elements I have used...

Ready for a little before preview? Just to warn you, it looks like a goodie gumdrops ice-cream exploded in there...

That mint green and the missing door!

That mint green and the missing door!

I will do a full before and after post once it is complete so you can see the result. I am utterly blown away! And you won't believe what I spent to do it. Be sure to check back in and see the final result!
