fun before and after....




before i went to bed last night, i picked up one of my dad's this old house magazines (do y'all read this....it has some good stuff from time to time) and saw this fun before and after kitchen.  i thought y'all might enjoy it too!  the backsplash kind of reminds me of tom scheerer's fabulous kitchens.  i'm away for the rest of the week so i hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!!

Funny, I was just looking through that magazine the other day and fell in love with that kitchen. I was going to blog it, but I couldn't find the images on the website at the time and was too lazy to scan them from the magazine. I can't decide which part I love the most, the backsplash, the black vintage cupboard or the lovely wood countertop on the island!

I love it... especially the backsplash! It's obvious they were tired of their boring old kitchen!
Enjoy your time away :)

Love the backsplash. Reminds me of Turkish designs. Also a good way to bring pattern into a kitchen that is still practical.

I love that mag - it's got some gems once in a while. Love this one - the tiles are amazing and I love that huge island :)

Stunning before and after! Love the beams on the ceiling and the range hood. It makes the ceiling seem higher. And the tile... don't get me started on the awesomeness of that tile!
