Kitchen Tour

My Kitchen…

Although I have been in the mood to do a mini makeover on my kitchen I wanted to give you a kitchen tour of how it is now.

So get ready for picture overload 🙂

Wait…before we get started, I thought you should know,

my awesome husband did the tile work! (I assisted)

Oh, and I painted and glazed the cabinets. (He did not assist, he hates painting)

One of the changes I would like to make will be to stain the table top darker 🙂

My kitchen has a view into the family room but is not an open floor plan…something I have actually enjoyed!  We had the open concept in our previous house and I like that this one is a separate room.

These floors really need to be refinished but because of the Quick Shine product I used on them they are looking really good.  You can read about How to get your floors to shine here.

The cabinets started out white and I painted them an antique white then added the glaze.

For fun, here is what they looked like when we bought our house…

This lazy susan was an Ikea purchase.  I just spray painted it black and distressed it! It is a great piece to use for parties.  You can put condiments on it and it spins so you can reach everything.

This little box was a yard sale find.  Spray paint once again and distressing brought it back to life.

Perfect for our electronics!

We have a beautiful view out into our back yard. One of my MOST favorite spots in the house.

If you follow me on Instagram, which you totally should, you will see me post lots of pics sitting here while I work!

A Stroll Thru Life




  1. What a beautiful kitchen! You have lots of space and storage and the floors are gorgeous!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

  2. Beautiful job! Love the bright fresh look you created in your kitchen! l have the same Ikea lazy susan, I put it in the fridge for my condiments. Off to see how to get my floors that shiny! 🙂

  3. Your kitchen is gorgeous, Sonya! The distressing on the cabinets made such a difference. You did an awesome job (assisting) with the tile! So glad I got to meet you in person the other week!

  4. You are so sweet! I have been putting off adding the house tour photo’s because there were so many things I’ve been wanting to change but decided it is the current house tour so go for it. After seeing all the pics, I think it looks sort of “new” again. Amazing what a new perspective can do 🙂 Have a great week Nancy!

    FYI…I was trying to be 1st on your Project Inspired Link party last night and I decided to tweet it and I posted as 2nd, lol!

  5. Beautiful Sonya! I love everything (even the fabric on the chairs that you are thinking of changing! 😉 ) The tile is gorgeous…and so are the cabinets. Very nice! Oh, and those floors look fabulous!!! 😉

  6. I think I am ready to paint the walls and change out the fabric on the chairs and the window…we will see! Thanks so much for stopping by Krista!

  7. Thanks Christy, you are so sweet! I can’t wait to see what you do with your cabinets after seeing how you rocked
    building that gate! You go girl! ~Sonya

  8. Your kitchen is so pretty already! Lovely glazing and beautiful backsplash. I am curious about what you are going to do now given that it is already such a homey space!

  9. Bo, I remember that too!! I’m so glad our families have those memories!
    I love you and pray for you MANY times eveyday!

  10. Hey Girl, I totally get the cookie thang! I remember you cooking up us some while we would leave scrapbooking to watch the bachelor/bachelorette a long with tall glass of milk. Thanks for sharing the heart of your home with me… I needed a distraction.

    Blessings along your path,

  11. Beth…we have to meet in person! We are surely long lost friends!!
    Thank you for your sweet comments!

  12. You aren’t going to believe this but you’re kitchen cabinets are the exact same color/style as mine. I think we were separated at birth! Looks GREAT!!!! I love it.

  13. Painting the kitchen cabinets really does make a big impact for a low cost! It does disrupt the kitchen use for a few days but it is worth it. Here’s a secret…I don’t paint the inside of the cabinets, saves time and scratches 🙂

  14. Love your kitchen cabinets! I want to paint ours so bad but I’m a little nervous about it :/ Thanks for sharing your lovely home 🙂
