Envy My Kitchen

This was our ugly kitchen before: now here is the after

Marshall's! And i love the distressed look!
These were purchased at Kirkland homes! They have my dad s funeral flowers in some of them so there kind of sentimental.( not sure you can see the flowers but there in there with the balls)

Here is my kitchen for this week. Brought to you by me- Jenny. When we first bought this house it was so gross. We re-modeled everything our selves! We still have a lot more on what i want to do with the kitchen and the rest of the house. So its still a work in progress. I painted the cabinets black and distressed them myself(with the help of my lovely sister). I love the way they turned out! There is nothing better than having a nice clean kitchen( at least for me) thanks for visiting my kitchen!

My Inspiration:
Here is one Kitchen i love. I love the glass on the Cabinets! So freaking cute. And of course the chandelier is to die for!

One day i will have a kitchen look similar to this that i could cook in!

Today my dad would of celebrated his 61st birthday! So i ll leave you with a little tip he always told me while he cooked( He was chef, an excellent one i might add, gourmet one!)
"Clean as you go" and i must say i do live by his quote. makes it easier and less of a mess to clean up after-wards
