Before and After: So Long, Dated Wallpaper

Su Casa member Kimpossible finally got around to updating her kitchen, or at least starting the process, after three years on the back burner. She began with the easiest, and often the most effective change, paint! As you can see, her wallpaper was dated and really didn't do much for the room. So, a warm coat of chocolate brown paint came to the rescue, and made a drastic difference. She also added some counter stools to match, a shelf for spices, and a window valance. Want to see the after photo? Then


It looks much more sophisticated now. It's amazing what a little color can do!

Oh wow! It's amazing how even just the [relatively small] changes make a huge difference.

Thank you! And thank you Casa for featuring it. gjt4954, I understand. I really want new countertops but that will have to wait a while. Actually I want new appliances and a bigger kitchen too LOL.

Nice Job!! What a rich and great look. I'm getting ready to remodel my kitchen and I can't wait. I wish I only had to add paint and a few other things like you did. My cabinets are a disaster!!!!
