martha stewart kitchens...






so far we have come up with thee options for kitchen cabinets. 1.) keeping the ones we have and reusing them/changing doors (which i'm leaning toward at this point) 2.) ikea kitchens 3.) martha stewart kitchens. we went over to home depot on monday (i know super fun day off for the kids!). they didn't have much on display but we got the big book of options. i like these over the ikea ones so far because you can get them in grey, which i really want. i don't like having white cabinets, too hard to keep nice looking. i liked the martha stewart ones,and all the fancy options, even though they are more expensive than ikea i believe (?). i was also excited to see that molly from mommycoddle is currently putting in a martha stewart kitchen in her farmhouse. i'm looking forward to seeing how it turns out. i'd love to hear from other people who have one. i'm leaning toward keeping our cabinets because 1.) it's cheap 2.) they are wood and can be painted 3.) it's cheap. seriously though, i do like that they are wood and if they need updating or i change my mind i can repaint. plus, they each have cool sliding shelves. they aren't the best cabinets but with new doors and hardware they would probably look a lot better, and painted grey. then i could invest in a big new island and storage cupboards along one wall instead. i do fantasize about opening up that pretty martha catalog and being able to just pick out my dream kitchen without worrying about cost. what is the fun in that though really?!

I think it is a great idea to keep what you have and redo them. It is much less wasteful and leaves you the money for that dream island :) The kitchen of my dreams.........oh.........I could die a happy woman just dreaming of them , lol

Yes. I just assumed we would want new cabinets but when i started actually looking at them in the store I realized the quality isn't any better than what we have (and we can't afford a real cabinet maker to come in and custom make them or those fancy Plain English ones!). I like making less waste too. That's why we close the metal roof in part because it goes over the old one. I'm not sure I can imagine not dreaming about a new kitchen though!
