New kitchen floor

So I just posted that our house is for sale, and has been for a while. We had the UGLIEST lino EVER in our kitchen. I'm not sure who would EVER have chosen to put something that horrible in a home. It probably wasn't that bad... but I hated it. When we got married 5-1/2 years ago, I thought painting the kitchen green was a great idea. I also like the orange cabinets then, too.
Our house wasn't selling, we were sick of getting lookers and them all saying the same thing. "The paint needs to be re-done, and the lino needs to be replaced." We decided it was a good idea to buy some cheap lino, get it installed, paint the kitchen a nice, neutral grey/brown, and see what happened.
Please don't mind the mess. Here is before. See what I mean about the 'orange' cabinets?

Another before.

A before shot of my wonderful lino.

I finished painting!

New paint, old floor.

Better view of new paint, old floor. I already LOVE the new paint! Don't know why we didn't do this years ago! It even makes the cabinets look less orange!
 Here is where the 'afters' start. I'm SO in love with my new kitchen, my husband is scared I'll never want to leave!
This is the new paint and new floor together. Ahhh... it looks SO much better.  Even better now  that the table  and stuff is back in there, but my kids are eating right now, so I'll have to get a picture of the dining room later. 

Another view of the paint and floor...

Don't mind my goober child. He was SO excited to play on the new floor!

Ahh. The stove is no longer in the garage!

LOVE the picture I found for above the sink.

Like my key holder?
Well, there 'ya have it. My new kitchen! As I get stuff cleaned up and moved back in, I'll take some better pictures. I just love it! I really can't believe we put off doing this for so long!


  1. What a DIFFERENCE!!! I can't believe how nice it looks! Way to go. Hopefully it sells, now...
