Spiffed-up kitchen

So I have probably mentioned to most people I know that I love to read design blogs. They are so inspiring! I think the best part of them is the lovely photography of creative people's homes in tip top shape. I like to imagine that when not staged they look a little more like mine and that with some professional photography mine could appear more beautiful like theirs, but anyway it is so fun to see things decorated so nicely. Does reading design blogs make me focus too much on possessions and appearances? Maybe. Probably. But I am so happy to read in the Bible about how God himself had specific design ideas for his temple and fashion ideas for the priestly robes. Now my home is not a national temple and I am not a priest, but I do like to think that since he dwells in me as a Christian, he can be glorified by a place (my place) becoming more beautiful. I also love to think that I can use the creativity he shares with me as his daughter by decorating my humble abode.

All that to say, Paul and I undertook a pretty big polishing up of our kitchen in the last few weeks. I love it now. Here are some before and after pictures:
