I'm Christy from 11 Magnolia Lane, and I'm pretty thrilled about having the opportunity to post on The DIY Showoff. Roeshel, thank you so much for inviting me to share my kitchen and laundry room with your readers! At 11 Magnolia Lane, I blog with two of my girlfriends about a little bit of everything. We all have our "niche" area, and mine seems to be home decor and DIY stuff (maybe because we move so often--I'm a military wife). Obviously, it's hard to cram all the horrible "before" and awesome "after" pictures into one short post, so stop by and visit for the full story, and tons of pictures, on both my kitchen and the laundry room re-do's.
The kitchen HAD to be done first. Dark, dreary, and dated--how is that even possible for a house built less than ten years ago?--I knew before we bought the house that I'd be painting the cabinets white.
(You can see more of this home and kitchen HERE.)
But, after our move earlier this summer here was the kitchen I had to start with. I added a shelf bracket (trimmed to fit) and molding to create a built-in look."
