|Before and after we removed the kitchen backsplash and got new countertops.|
That was all our budget allowed at that time but slowly over the years we made other changes. I redid the flooring and came up with some creative storage solutions involving vintage finds. Hippie installed our oven fan and eventually treated himself to a new dishwasher (which I hear works really great).
By summer of 2014, more than eight years after we moved in, our kitchen was finally starting to shape up.

Then, after years of searching, I just happened to stumble across what I knew was the perfect tile for our backsplash and managed to install it myself.

It made a huge difference and inspired us to make a few other changes, like painting the cabinets (I decided to just paint the inner panels of the upper cabinets for now) and adding the wine bottle pendant light we made. We also were finally able to replace our huge, old refrigerator.

It's still far from perfect and it will always have its quirks (most of which I have learned to love) but, like myself and my garden, I think my kitchen has evolved quite nicely. I look forward to realizing even more of its potential in the future.
