You may remember a while back I posted about my kitchen. Much like the rest of my house, its lacks personality.
It isn’t horrible, we just ran out of funds when it came to pretty time. I’m just tired of it, really tired of it. I keep telling myself I’m bored of blue, but when I went back to the drawing board, guess what I gravitated toward?
Am I crazy, maybe a little. But I’m full steam ahead with this kitchen makeover!
Those who follow me on Facebook and Twitter know I’ve been poking around with questions about paint colors, fabric choices, and backsplash tile. Thanks for weighing in, I think you’ve helped me come to a conclusion…
I’m really happy with this inspiration board. Although it isn’t a huge stretch from the current look, I think it is really going to give the space a much more put together look. I’m super excited!!
Faucet– Delta Canada “Pilar Collection” – I can’t wait to get my hands
on under this! This faucet can be operated traditionally by using the single handle or by touching anywhere on the handle to activate the water with Touch 2O Technology!
Paint– Pittsburg Paints Voice of Color Whirlpool PPG1230-3, Annapolis Blue– PPG146-7, Winter Feather PPG-14-06, Purity PPG14-20.
My current kitchen (you can see here) isn’t that old, so I won’t be touching the cabinets, countertops, or appliances.
Backsplash– Home Depot Canada
Fabric– Bryant Industries
Sink- Blanco Canada
However, those things will need to be addressed sooner than later as my counter has a huge crack in it, my stove has a broken knob and the fridge insides are falling apart plus making an airplane type noise!
I have gathered loads of inspiration from on my Pinterest ‘Kitchen Love’ board
Follow Virginia Fynes’s board Kitchen Love on Pinterest.
Here are a few items that I’ve been inspired by
I love these small subway backsplash tiles
I’m going to add a few pieces of furniture to the kitchen space now that the highchair has moved on and the kiddos are getting a little bigger.
I don’t know what it is about butcher prints that gets me, maybe my farm girl background, but I’ve decided I need some.
I can’t wait to get started on this kitchen makeover.
I am actually looking at changing the counter, sink and faucet this fall and need a lot of inspiration.

I love your inspiration and choices Virginia! We are about to gut and renovate our whole kitchen and I have picked some similar finishes!! Can’t wait to see how yours turns out:)
Thanks Krista! I’ll be excited to see yours too, I love your style!
I have that same fabric!! I love your inspiration choices, I keep pinning things for my future dream home 🙂 I can’t wait till we’re out of our apartment and can actually paint and decorate!
Great choices! We are building our final home next year and I may have to “borrow” some inspiration from you. 🙂
Still wanting to paint my cabinets white :-/

Oh boy, I can’t wait to see what you do! I love your inspiration board – the turquoise, blue and red combination makes my heart beat a little faster. I love subway tile backsplashes too – that’s one thing we still need to do in our kitchen when we are able to. Have fun!
I’m so excited, I can’t wait for it all to come together, The backsplash is the one thing we left when we moved in 5 years ago. I’m so excited for it to come together.
I love your use of colour, Virginia! It’s going to be such a great space – I can’t wait to see it come together!
