Before & After of my kitchen

When I moved into Vinnord, the kitchen was horribly yellow, orange and brown! And had been extremely cluttered when the past owner had it... It needed some serious tlc. I painted the walls a pistachio green, added new cabinets from Ikea, and changed the floor. It is still "cluttered" in many ways, but so much more soothing to the eye :) One of my favorite rooms in the cottage.

Befrore!!! I fell in love with the old stove, and I have kept it in the updated kitchen.
The "new" look. I wanted a timless farm-country-cottage feel. And I think I achived it too. All my furniture are 2nd hand from family or fleamarkets. I have just painted or cleaned it. Depending on the state of the item.

the fridge and coffee nook :) I have a bigger fridge for storing food in the basement. But this one serves me well on a day to day basis. more photos at
