A plan is coming together

I've thought long and hard about spending almost $3000 to remodel my kitchen and I've decided that I'm not going to spend that much money. We had planned to replace all of our cabinets and then add more. I live in a house that was built in the 1950's. The kitchen is small and the cabinets are still in great shape. They just need a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware. That is what we are going to do-paint and refurbish. We are going to have a retro/vintage/1950's type theme. We bought a really cool table and fridge. Our light fixture is chrome and today we bought a white porcelain sink. I think it is going to look very neat. I don't cook alot therefore I just couldn't see spending so much money in a room that I will not be spending alot of time in and utilizing. This way it will be functional and neat.

The sunroom floor looks great. Tomorrow they will finish it and by Tuesday we will be able to start painting the room. Yeah!

Looking like this is a light at the end of this tunnel somewhere!

Here is a picture of my table.

WOW! I love this table! Was it used or new? I have been looking for a used chrome table in good condition, but no luck. I just ended up buying one from American Chairs. Yes, it was expensive, but it too was the inspiration for the rest of the kitchen. Looks like we had similar goals in mind when planning our kitchens. Can't wait to explore the rest of your posts. ;-)
