The Kitchen reveal;)

Hello Lovelies, 
it`s been a while;/ but I am not dead!
I am back;)

And I want to show you my kitchen and my hall,
(previously known as hall of shame;)
Yes these rooms are ready,
and I got the photos done;)

You can see the before photos at the end of the post or just click the links.

So, on to the kitchen.
Warning this is a really photo heavy post;)

What we did:
We raised the cabinets and builded new shelves.
I painted the cabinets, walls and ceiling.
Got a new countertop.
Painted the handles.
A new door, which allows to get some day light to the tiny hall.
Got some nice lightning.
Got a table and some chairs.
and some pretty decorations;)

The expensive peaces were the table and the two chairs in this kitchen.
Oh yeah, and the door;)
(not counting the tile)
It is freaking crazy how much you have to pay for a door!

Here is the new nice tea and coffee station.
I don`t drink these beverages anymore, but I like how it look.
And my friends get some nice tea when they come over;)

My lovely plate wall.

My cleaned chalkboard wall and rooster clock;)

Here comes the hall;)

What we did:
Painted the walls and ceiling, 
got new floor, 
new lights, 
I got it from the thrift store and paid 15€ for it.
And found some heavy gold earrings, for about 50€ in the little drawer;)
So it is a win win!;)
Maybe it belonged to an old lady, who knows;)

Yesterday we put up a shelf above the door and build a small door over the door
on the left.
This sentence sounds funny;)
And I put a huge black plate instead of the reindeer head.
Will show you that too.

So are you ready for the before pix?;)

So, this is pretty much it...
I love my new kitchen and hall.
No regrets, wouldn`t done anything different;)

So what do you think?
Like it?

Love and hugs...
