Life was so simple in the days of Leave It to Beaver. The women were the stay-at-home wives/moms, the husbands were the breadwinners, off to their busy day at the office, and the kids ran around with their neighbourhood friends causing mischief. I am so nostolgic of an era I wasn't even alive in.
I am determined to do my best to re-vamp my kitchen area a little bit with some retro elements. If I could afford to change the countertop or find time to repaint the walls, I would, but some less expensive alternatives are in store. Don't get me wrong. I love my kitchen, but it could definitely use some colour. White seemed to be an easy choice for everything upon moving in, so now that I've been moved in for 3 years (has it been 3 years already?) it's time for some updates!
These are some pieces I've had my eye on to help with the update:

To me, how a kitchen looks foretells how much you will use it. The kitchen should have a 'come hither and bake' look to it. By the time I'm done with it, my kitchen will be saying 'come hither' too.
