I am dying to have a subway tile back splash. It will happen, but not until spring break. So, I started out by painting the wall white. It was already so much brighter. I was going to patiently wait for subway tile.
One wild hair up my ass and a sharpie later and I drew on my subway tile. I have had some people over and they went, "Hey you got subway tile, then I say nope just paint and a sharpie marker!! Plus Mr. TSL put up/made some shelves for the kitchen :)
Before we moved in:
-ripped out the nasty ass crapet (yep tile looking disgustingly filthy carpet)
-painted the subfloor (temporary)
-moved the cabinets up and added a shelf underneath
-took out the cabinet above the sink and replaced with shelves
-put in above stove microwave
-changed all the appliances to black that we scored sweet deals on and/or got from craigslist
-took out weird pergola top off island and straightened the island.
-replaced the light with barn lights from upstairs
-painted walls, trim, pantry doors and shutter door medicine cabinet.
Now on to the dining room, the view from the kitchen when we moved in:
