look how far my kitchen has come...

My kitchen has been the biggest work in progress for what seems like forever! With two young and very active boys and I seem to have very little time to focus on big projects (such as my kitchen), so I have tackled it by doing one small project at a time, making this kitchen one very long drawn out process. I just finished the island yesterday. It would have been done a few weeks ago, but indecisive me decided to paint it creamy white instead of the green that I originally painted it.

Here is a picture of my kitchen as of today...





And here it is just 1 short year ago...

    Your kitchen is lovely and I do love the crown molding, also have always loved the plates in the frame!
