Hi.

I'm Kerra Michele, and this is my dog, Lunchbox. Welcome to our blog! We generally write about easy tips to make a rental space feel more like home, but we also talk about our life and travels. I hope you like our stories and adventures!

{Before + After} Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

{Before + After} Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

The kitchen cabinets are DONE and I. LOVE. THEM. This is what my kitchen looked like before...

This is what it looked like after I painted the walls with black chalkboard paint...

This is what it looked like during my renovation-related nervous breakdown...

And here's where we are now!

Sooooooooo??? What do you think?! I love the way the "pantry" cupboard turned out! The mason jars are SO CUTE and now we can see everything we have! I always felt I was buying doubles of things and then not buying things I was actually running out of. A problem of the past! I chose Ball brand mason jars because I wanted silver lids, since the handles of all the remaining doors and drawers in the kitchen are silver.

Our dishes look SO GOOD against the mint! Our dishware is the Madison collection from Crate & Barrel and the glassware is a mix of stuff from CB2 and Crate & Barrel.

And then, of course, we have what I'm already calling the Morning Beverage Center -- strategically placed above the coffeemaker. Natch.

I'm totally in love!!! The weekend stress was absolutely worth it. And I think the black, white, and mint color palette is fresh and modern! What do you think???
