What an exciting series, I'm so happy to be a part of it! My name is Brooke and I would like to introduce to you my chosen space. Here is my kitchen, a space I truly LOVE. Our kitchen did not always look like this (I will include a before picture for you to see the difference). When we purchased our town home, I had mixed feelings - I was so excited to be a first-time home owner, but the kitchen was just so far from my dream kitchen (dark cabinets, dark granite...just overall DARK!), and I had always dreamed of a bright, white kitchen.
We decided to re-do the kitchen, but we were working with a tight budget, so having to be very resourceful was a challenge, but a lot of fun at the same time. We replaced the counters, cabinet hardware, and backsplash, painted the cabinets white, and had roman shades made to replace the existing (you guessed it, DARK) bamboo shades. The transformation is something I am very proud of, and I am so happy we decided to go through with it.
I cook for my family (husband and baby girl) 5 nights a week, so having a space that I enjoy is essential, and I am so thankful for that. I hope you enjoy the transformation!
