So, I’ve been itching to lighten up my kitchen ever since we moved into our home.  There was nothing wrong with it.  It was done beautifully, and Mr. B was against the change up from the start with the classic, “why do you have to change something that already looks great?!”  And he was right… But then I had to remind him who he was married to, and that I can’t sit still, and that I always have to find new projects and change things up! 😬 

Here’s a little glimpse at the before:   
Honestly, there is not much wrong with this space. Knotty alder, black distressed cabinets, granite… It really is lovely… But… I’m ready to move to the white side.  I know it’ll open up the space and bring in the light.  So, the change is coming!
