Kitchen Change Up Finale

Well it’s the big taa daa moment.

I’ve finished with the kitchen changes. It feels light and springy and I really like it! I liked the old Tuscan look too. But this one is definitely turning out to be my favorite. Here are the before and afters.

What do you think?

The top of the cabinets Before

Rust and golds and I do love the long scrolled Italian planter in the middle

The top of the cabinets After

I bought that lovely antique white bicycle planter years ago ( top left),

and now it has a home on top of the cabinets holding some lovely greenery

Counter one Before

Simple and nice, only thing missing was a cake in the cake plate.

Counter one After

Now a little something extra, but no cake in the plate here either.

Hmm, might be time to break out the mixer.

Counter two Before

Simple again, but I love that plate!

My husband bought it for me at an art show years ago. Love it!

Counter two After

Loving this giant glass holder. I filled it with lovely greens and whites.

The green plate was another gift from my husband.

A very talented potter in our area uses natural elements to create his art.I love this too.

There are leaf imprints in it.

Here’s a close up I added a  lovely green place mat.

I’m also making a few changes in the dining room too.


The buffet Before

The buffet After

Oh and here are the kitchen mats you can’t see in the final photo.  I added new curtains in the dining room too. So that’s it. Now I need to create a nice centerpiece for the dining table.

    I haven’t seen that much of my counter tops, in years. They are a catch all, for everything!

    Nice decor! I love it. Your kitchen is designed similar to mine. On the left side of our fridge is my coffee bar, but on the right instead of counter space we have a pantry. Very nice. I wish we had granite counter tops though. Re-following. Thanks for stopping by this morning!!

    Hi Katherine. Thanks for visitng me today! Yes, I have been here and have been looking around but wasn’t able to find the comment button. I finally found it. Love the spring accents in the kitchen. Green always makes for a happy kitchen!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Thank you for your patience Holly. I haven’t found a way to make the comment button stand out. Not sure what to do on that one. Big Hugs!

  8. Shady Del Knight

    Katie – Yes, I found your new location! I wanted you to know that your kitchen cabinets look very similar to the ones I had installed in my own kitchen recently. I love green and the dashes of green, white and other colors look marvelous in your kitchen! Have a wonderful weekend, dear friend!

  15. Katrina@TheyAllCallMeMom

    Hi! I’m now following you via the Weekend blog hop –
    Your spring touches look wonderful! What a pretty kitchen! If my kitchen looked like yours…maybe I’d cook more ;) haha
    Did you recently switch from Blogger to WordPress? If so, what were your main reasons for the switch? Just curious to know what you like better about WordPress. I hear more and more bloggers switching to it. I’m considering it myself but just need to do a little more looking into it. And hearing other’s opinions/experiences helps a lot :)
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Katherines Corner

      Hello Katrina, Welcome, I will send a note your way regarding the change. Hugs!

    Hi there, Katherine! Thought I would stop by for a visit and see what you’ve been up to. I like all the bright and cheery changes you’ve made to your kitchen for spring. I STILL have not changed out my decorations from winter. I’m spending so much time outside enjoying the natural spring decorations now that I don’t give much thought to those inside. ;)

    Have you found anything wonderful for your CSN giveaway win yet? I hope you’re able to find something totally delightful.

    By the way, I just joined you here and on BlogFrog.

  20. Karen@WaistingTime

    Thanks for visiting my blog:) The stuff on the top of my kitchen cabinets collects dust that somehow sticks on with grease that must evaporate and rise up there. Yuck.

    1. Katherines Corner

      I enjoyed my visit. Unfortunately that is a draw back to having things on top. You may find this helpful. https://www.goaskkatie.com/Degreaser.html
