Kitchen Updates and Plans

When we first moved in our kitchen looked like this:

After some demo and yanking up the crapet(yep, I typed crapet instead of carpet....seriously gross, carpet in the kitchen and dining room. barf.)

I painted the lantern I picked up for $10 at the thrift store.  I still love the lantern, but I'm thinking it needs to be black instead.  I also had mason jar lights above the kitchen area after I switched out the crappy lights that were there.  Apparently they got super hot and when my brother in low tapped one...shattered.  Suckola.  Luckily I had this barn lights that were in the kids' rooms when we moved in.  I had to switch those for ceiling fans because it is so hot upstairs.

Kitchen Plans:

Phase Easily DIY:
*add some planks to the back of the island and trim bottom out.
*paint the kitchen cabinets white on top.  
*add some shelves below the cabinets, they have been raised and we could use a little reachable storage.
*paint bottom cabinets black
*spray paint hinges black or nickel....we'll see.

Phase Need Some Assistance:
*add hardware
*skim coat laminate counters with concrete
* subway tile backsplash

Phase Costs Some Dough:
*new countertops
*new sink
*maybe add a window

Phase DIY and NeedSome Assistance will be done by Christmas...I'm hosting Christmas for the first time in 9 years. I am going to begin most of this at the beginning of October.  I already purchased the hardware and will be getting the subway tile as soon as I choose which one I want to go with!
