The end is here! Woah, I never thought I would be saying those words, but it really is the end of this
6 7 week challenge. I am grateful to Linda for talking me into doing this challenge again! She really knows how to get my butt in gear. Thank you Linda!!
My little rental apartment kitchen finally got the personal makeover it deserved for close to 5 years. Like I said when I started this project, just because I live in a rental doesn't mean it shouldn't feel like my own. I should have done this straight from the beginning, regardless if I thought I was only going to be here for 2 years. Not owning this place it made major renovations not realistic. This makeover had to consist of paint, fabric, and accessories.
Lets go back to where I started. The first picture (on the left) is going wayyy back, back to the first week I lived here.

The rug was purchased about 2 years ago and was the jumping off point for this makeover
I actually stuck to the original plan and used everything here.
OK enough talking already, here is my new kitchen

And that's a wrap!
7 weeks of planning, projects, paint and hark work has paid off. With a few personal details, paint and creativity my rental apartment is no longer a place I avoid at all costs. I might actually put some of those pots and pans I have to use and cook a nice dinner for my husband.
Who am I kidding, I'll put the newly painted take out menu drawer to use and order us a nice celebratory dinner.
Thank you so much for coming back each week to check in on my little kitchen makeover. I had much fun tackling this project that I can't wait to start the next one. After a little R&R of course.
Now I'm off to check out the other 19 bloggers and their final reveals, I can't wait to see how all the rooms turned out!
