Our First Home- Atlanta-Kitchen and Den

MORE OF MY ATLANTA HOUSE
see all of the interiors here
---------------------------------------------
OLD KITCHEN
Too dark when I bought it

PROGRESS KITCHEN
painted blue, added crown molding, stainless appliances and bamboo shade

NEW KITCHEN
changed out cabinet hardware, new faucet, added pendant lighting and cleaned up the decor, took out yellow
I never had the budget to change out the white laminate cabinets, but gutting the kitchen was on the list- I thought it could have a much better layout.  

OLD DEN
Blah beige when I bought it

PROGRESS DEN
not sure what was going on here really, only pic I had
added crown molding and painted blue

NEW DEN
added light and bright linen furnishings, rearranged the layout
