Intellectual Kitchen

It's finally finished! After months, errr, years of griping about the hideous plaid wallpaper that came with The Bungalow, we finally buckled down and took the plunge.
SEE! I told you it was horrid!
Dude... it looked so fresh and clean after that wallpaper came down that I did a little happy dance and almost forgot about the granite counters that were coming. Goodbye horrible taste of the previous owners!
Never mind that I felt like we should be featured on an episode of "Hoarders" when we had a sink on our deck for a few days. Ya know, just in case we needed it again for something.
Over the course of 2 days, we had counters removed, counters installed, and plumbers out to hook up our fancy new sink. We opted for the cheapest color granite, since it didn't make much sense to blow the budget on something that was barely any different. Plus, it was the best compromise for the space and for the difference in taste between me and Puff. I'm madly in love with my rounded corner. Yes, I'm a nerd.
So, here's the final product! I'm addicted to this wall color (yes, it's the same color we used in the bathroom HERE) but it saved me on another gallon of paint, right? We got some cute new accessories from West Elm (because every room in The Bungalow is destined to have something from that store) and some cute antiques too, which I'll write about in another upcoming post.
What do you think? Was the plaid as ridiculous as I think it was? (Puff didn't think it was that bad!) Are you doing a happy dance with me in celebration of our new, much more modern and sexy kitchen? Are you already planning to come crash our pad for a party?

Wow! What a transformation! It looks awesome!!! I love the counter tops. We have "faux" granite counter tops, but one day, I will have real!!
