reduce, reuse, repurpose

That's been my motto for my "redo my entire first floor because now I look at it 24 hours a day and don't like it anymore" changes. SO anyway, I'm a sucker for before and afters. I don't have too many yet, because everything still feels like it's not quite finished; BUT- I changed some stuff up in the kitchen: removed old curtains and hardware, added my $7 rug from Lowe's, and changed the accent color from red to green and blue. I tried to re-purpose as many things as possible. Example- Instead of getting new jars for my flour, sugar, and tea, I spray painted them (shocker). I did buy a few new things like these little crocs from Ross ($2.99 each) and some dish towels. It's still a work in progress, but at least now it flows better with the rest of my first floor. So, here's the kitchen today. It's not done, but it's different.

Side note: nice weather = a whole lot of spray painting action. Pictures to come.
