New look for Spring!

So I was trying to think of ways to change my kitchen without painting the cabinets, I'm not that brave yet.... and I wanted to take away some of the dark colors for a more Shabby chic look. I pulled out old decorations from our old house, switched some things around and painted a few things. I tried to not spend any money, the only thing I bought was spray paint! So heres the old look ....

and heres the new look...(the kitchen counter was starting to get full right before my mom in laws bday party) it looks a lot better with the counter clean!

And I also needed to make a place in the house for more pictures since I take soooo many! This project was also cheap- old frames I've had stored away and all I did was spray paint them and distress them! I love this look! I took some of our favorite pics and filled them up! I want to try and find a little sign about family to put in that tiny empty space between the frames to the right- it bugs me too much!

I will have more changes to come~ front porch revamp too!! Happy Friday!

  4. Thank you so much~ I hope I will get brave enough to paint them! And I will visit Pittypat Paperie~

  5. I'm a sucker for multi colored picture frame collage walls. Love yours! I did a whole tutorial on painting your cabinets in case you're interested. Although I don't blame you for putting it off. You have a whole lotta cabinet doors! Visiting from Remodelaholic.
