Updates on the updates, sort of...

Hello Lovelies, 
here are the painted doors!
All done, the paint just need to dry,
yes this is how I use my paint table these days,
 no pretty art going on here right now;(
But hey, paint is paint right?
Not on a canvas... but;)

Got my tiles;)

Pretty right?
No these are not in my kitchen, 
these were in the hardware store.

Mine are laying in the garage.

And I spray painted my handles, 
from shiny silver to

deep black.

Tomorrow, when everything is dried, 
I have to seal the wood with laquer and get the doors 
and handles back in place.

And we will start with the floor.
Can`t wait for that;)

Done with the wall and the lighting...;)

Hello Lovelies, yesterday was a looong night.
But today I finished my walls and we completed the upper cabinets lighting.
And I was at IKEA and got my wall mounted table and one chair.
They sadly havent the sink and faucet. 

So I have to go back at the weekend and get them.
But I got a curtain rod and some nice striped fabrik;)

Wanna see?;)

Got extra storage above the fridge;)

So far... Now I have to paint the cabinets, 
I already started on the fridge, you can`t see it here.

O my so much to paint!
Have to start now, 
stay tuned;)

Update on - I have chosen my paint colors! Am I crazy for doing this?!

Hello Lovelies, this is how far I came today, 
until my dad surprises me, to help me with the lighting!
He`s so cute;)
And than I have to help him helping me;)
So I have to finish the walls tomorrow because we have to finish the
installation tonight.

See the beam above the cabinets?
This is how we started;)
I will show you hopefully the whole thing tomorrow.

So what you`re thoughts, don`t know if I like the bricks, 
my hubby loves them, I`m not sure yet.
Maybe because I was staring at them the whole day!;)
Okay my Luvs, delivery service is here, with some nice Italian food, 
have to go and eat and than help to get finished.

I have chosen my paint colors! Am I crazy for doing this?!

Hello Lovelies, 
I think I was the first person at our hardware store this morning;)
These are my paint colors now.

The white for the walls and the darker tone for the cabinets.
Diamond white has a slight grey tone, looks pretty on the walls.

After all supplies were home I put the shelves to the wall.
I used a threaded rod to secure one side of the shelf 
and simple screwed the other side to the wall or the cabinets.

Now I`m done with painting.
Wanna see how this looks like?

I know, doesn`t look ready!
That`s because I thought the whole night about the 
brick stone backsplash!
I can`t get this pic out of my head;)

I think this would look lovely against the grey cabinets, 
like it does here, but I don`t want spend money on that too...
So I thought I may paint them on and than simply seal it
with laquer.
I found this brick pattern...

and thought to give it a try.
I think I`ll skip IKEA today and paint my walls instead...

I thought I use my acrylic paint for this.

This is how far I am right now, keep the fingers crossed for me that I made it through the day;)
I`m not even half way ready and already fed up;) 

So wish me luck, my break is over;)

New project I`m planning to do for three years now...

Hello my Lovelies, yes another one, 
I know I still haven`t show you my studio space, 
but I`m really excited, because I finally got everything together
and the time to redo my tiny kitchen;)

We live with this one for about nine years now, 
and it doesn`t fit our needs or style anymore.
So instead go and get another one for big money, 
I wanted to renovate this space on my own.

I wanted to replace our countertop, pretty the same color, 
just a new one.
Get new floor, a dark fake wood tile, we have here laminate in a creamy beige wood.
And you know what?! I hate to clean this floor;)
I`m in desperate need of a tile floor!

Want some open shelves, 
a solution for our microwave, nice indirect lighting, 
a breakfast area, a small one, which I can remove after we`re ready, 
a new sink and a new water faucet.

Of course paint the walls and think of painting the cabinets too, 
not sure about that.
Haven`t decided which color I should pick, 
need to look through some more 
paint samples.

This is what I thought of...

I have only 590€!
So I have to stay in budget;)

Love these pics I found on Pinterest!

Love the shelves here, 

oh and want, want a french door;)

How`s about that wall as a backsplash?

And these colors for cabinets?

Or two colors?

I think I`ll go with grey...
Oh my, decisions, decisions..:)

Now, are you ready for some nice before pics?
Please ignore the mess, we`re at a construction area right now!
It may be too much after all those pretty pictures;)

So here they come;)

So like you can see, this is a really tiny space;)
We uplifted the cabinets here, 
so I don`t have really before, before pics.

The cabinets have a creamy vanilla color and the walls are lime green.

The wood for the shelves is laying around here in the corridor.
The wall paint too, 
so my plan for tomorrow is get up early and paint those walls, 
get the shelves done, the wood is painted already and the best part, 
go to IKEA and get the items I need;)

So what do you think?
Should I go with grey for the cabinets or stick to the color I have already?
Love to hear from you, and stay tuned for the progress!
Will show you more tomorrow;)
