Show Us Your House- Kitchen

I am participating in Thrifty Decor Chick's Show Us Your House, Kitchen edition.  Let's start with what the kitchen looked like when the house was purchased.  As you can see, there was quite the spanish influence happening in there.  The floors were Saltillo tile, the walls were golden yellow, and the cabinets were in their natural wood state.

Over the course of a few years, the room has been brightened up.  Walls were painted a soft putty color, and the hard tile floor was replaced with a warm laminate.  I painted the cabinets white to contrast with the black granite counters.  

The kitchen definitely feels much more comfortable and homie now.  I also think this is a good illustration of how you don't need to totally gut your kitchen to update it.  All of these updates are very DIY friendly.  A little paint can go along way!
