The New House: Kitchen Update

I mentioned last week that we were doing an easy kitchen update, getting a new backsplash. I have to admit that the update has exceeded my expectations. I was pretty sure it would look good, but sometimes you just can't tell until it's happened. The second the old tile came out it was like a whole new kitchen. It is SO much lighter and brighter in this hub of our home. 

Our Before: 
Full Disclosure, we updated the pendant lights less than 48 hours after we moved in. I remembered my friend Emily mentioning how much of a difference updated pendant lights made in their home, so I ordered some from Home Depot the second we made it out of our option period on selling our previous house. 



Our After: 






And a real life wider shot that shows what everything looks like! all the baby gear and all. :) Please note the giant box of maternity clothes in the hallway to let two friends who are expecting look at. 

What do y'all think? Like I've mentioned before, this is by no means our dream kitchen.. but we think the update has made all the difference!

PS. I just listed a ton of womens clothes, and baby boy clothes over @shopvictoriastrader on instagram! :)

  2. So pretty! We are going with white subway tile when we update our backsplash, but I think we are going with a dark grout for some contrast in our (literally) all-white kitchen. Easier to clean, too. ;)
