To start, this space was very cluttered and serving as our baby washing station. From bottles to breast pumps, we kept it all by this little wet bar sink. We have a very large kitchen, but it isn’t the most functional. The old “built in desk” area was completely pointless for storage, and I am most definitely not spending my work days sitting at this counter.

First, I cleared all the clutter off of the countertops. The backsplash tile had quite a few tiles with a leaf imprint and those needed to go, so I smoothed them with wall filler. Once the filler dried, I sanded all of the spots and cleaned the tile with a microfiber rag. For paint, I used two coats of Rustoleum and sealed it all with a shellac spray, which is food safe for the countertops as well.

I ordered a small tension rod and curtains from Amazon to hide the dog food eye sore, swapped out the knobs for black pulls, and then added some greenery with a faux potted plant and some fresh blooms. For me, the biggest transformation was taking down the pink wallpaper on the adjoining wall. Painting that wall white has made a huge difference in our entire kitchen!

Is this my dream kitchen? No. Is it brighter and more “me” absolutely! I look forward to the day that we are able to fully renovate our kitchen, but until then, the white paint and new, black cabinets pulls bring in a little bit more of our taste to tie the kitchen in with the rest of the house. I will never get over the power of paint!
