Red Farmhouse Kitchen...

Dreaming of my new kitchen today.....

Those of you who have followed my blog from the beginning probably know that we have been in the process of selling our home and finding a new one for the last few months.

Caution: Lots of rambling ahead.....

 Initially, we thought we had ours sold before we even put it on the market....but the buyer backed out. Ugh.
Then the beautiful log home we fell in love with turned out to have some major structural issues that were just more than we wanted to take on. Ugh Ugh!

So, I quit blogging about the house all together until I had something solid to tell yall about!!
Well, to make a long story short, we listed with a realtor and got a contract within a few weeks! Yaay! We were so thrilled about this but at the same time, we still had to decide on a house to buy. Well, we did!! And we close on both houses in a couple weeks :)
More about that later.....

Ok, thanks for sticking with me this far, here come the pics

This was taken before the current owners began packing........this is not my decor :)

One side of the new kitchen.
I LOVE the red cabinets! The scalloped window and door trim is another vintage touch I adore.My dream kitchen would have distressed and antiqued white cabinets.....
...and these may get a makeover one day.....but for now, I really like the red. We WILL be changing out the faux wood laminate countertops and backsplash soon though.... and updating a few of the appliances.

Hmmm....Maybe something like this

The black granite looks amazing with the red cabinets!! Traditional with a kick!!

Or maybe something like this farmhouse dream.....

Oooh.....the mixing of the red and white cabinets, beadboard, wood countertops, black's just total farmhouse yumminess to me! And since I'm definately going to paint the built in hutch white in the dining room , which is open to the kitchen, this look would really tie it all together beautifully. Mommy liiike!!

If it were in our budget to do a total gut-it redo, I would open the kitchen up like this! I'm so drooling over this island!!

Sooo......Decisions! Decisions!!
Which one is your favorite?? Will keep you posted on the progess and be sharing more house pics soon!!
