Just bad and ugly. Then good!

Just bad and ugly. Then good!

The knotty cabinetry and frontier-style light fixture made this kitchen feel country. A little too country. Like, “chuckwagon on the prairie” country. But wait! With the addition of that old Vegas casino carpeting (carpet or linoleum? Can’t tell, but tragic either way) you have potential for some memorable themed dinner parties!

Lone Ranger Roulette! Annie Get Your Run! Little Full House on the Prairie!

As fun as that sounds to me, I’m sure Heather is enjoying her sleek, classy kitchen much more. It looks like a completely different kitchen in a completely different era of time. Check out the progress on her blog simple.beautiful.home. Thanks Heather!

    From ugly duckling to beautiful swan! We did the same thing several years ago…went from dark, drab kitchen to fresh and white. It makes me feel cheery and happy now!

    Talk about a major transformation! That is fabulous. From dark and dreary to bright and beautiful.

    We had that same linoleum pattern when I was growing up in the 50’s.
