Sneak Peek: Condo Kitchen

We are finally in our old one bedroom condo, while our addition is being built. (Yes, we are packed like sardines in here with a toddler, preteen, 2 sort of grownups, a cat and baby on the way...CRAZY!) We had to renovate before moving back in, so I have a few before and afters to share soon. The kitchen isn't quite complete, but I wanted to post a midway snapshot before it's finished...

I had simple inexpensive cabinets put in and then painted hi gloss black, Carrera marble counters, and currently working on wallpaper throughout. I've wanted to try black cabinets forever. One thing I learned is that it's hard to find a true black cabinet, most come in a dark grey or very dark brown.  I had to have mine painted, so the black appliances would match. I also just like the look of painted cabinets over foil wrapped. 

The wallpaper is from Spoonflower in Tropicali Afternoon by Domesticate. I love bringing the outdoors in, especially in a petite kitchen with no windows. And this wallpaper is just beautiful! 

Also, if you live in the DC metro area Legacy Home Improvement Consultants are amazing. They did a fabulous job on my bathroom and kitchen renovation and were/are a delight to work with. Here's a contact number if you're interested:
703-835-0027. I'll share more when complete.



  1. Oh you'll have to let us know about the Spoonflower wallpaper quality!

  2. I can't wait to see it all completed! Thanks for letting me know;) And I think I want to use the Sunset version in my powder room!
