1. The rest of our house has some fairly neutral wall colors so I thought it might be fun to add a little color to the kitchen. There is not a lot of wall space in our kitchen so it's not a huge commitment to go with something like this coral color. The biggest project will be repainting the cabinets. I'm liking the idea of a medium to dark gray. I love this inexpensive chindi rug from World Market. Check it out in this Epic Room Makeover by Mandy from Vintage Revivals.
2. I need to put together an entryway. We enter our house through the back, kitchen door. It would be great to have a place to put my bag, my keys, and hang up my coat. Of course I'd love to have a cute tea print hanging in the kitchen.
3. Music is a must for my happy kitchen!
4. Since we don't have an eat in kitchen, it would great to have a little nook to sit and relax with a cup of tea and a magazine.
