From Drab to Fab









The first place that we started was in the kitchen. It was still the original 80's look with the original appliances. Yhe first thing we did was replace the stove and dishwasher. Later an over the stove microwave,sink and faucet. Then the cabinets were painted Edwardian Linen by Ralph Lauren. Next we painted the wall a soft grayed French blue. Then crown molding to the top of the cabinets and lastly the walls were wallpapered with Toile wallpaper. I also replaced the flourescent lighting with a chandelier to complete the look. The result is a wonderful, warm area to cook and bake.
