French Farmhouse Style in the City....

                              There is only so much you can do in a teeny-tiny kitchen...
                              This past week however I went from not really liking my kitchen....
                          to LOVING my kitchen....all thanks to a couple days work and a can of black paint! Gone are the horrid blotchy brown counters...after a year and a half it was long overdue.
                           Now the space feels fresh and clean...and inviting...
                              well worth the effort and the cost...which by the way even with some new goodies was well under $300....silly me..I splurged on two new island stools and didn't get a photo of them...will show them to you another time...
                             Hope you liked my mini kitchen re-do...
                thanks so much for taking the time to come by...till next time..xoxo

Dropped in on you for another inspiring Rustic look around, I love how this all feels, I wish my counters were black any thing but my tile. This is a perfect quaint kitchen to play house in :)

See you soon
