I do not think it is a very good idea to post pictures of my private residence online, but I will have lots of time to regret my deed, will not I?

This is what the kitchen looked like when I bought my apartment.

This is what the kitchen looks like now. Please have mercy, for I am not a millionnaire. I am a single working woman after 50.

Never before in my entire life have I encountered such tiles in a kitchen. At first I wanted to get rid of them, but then I decided to keep them in an attempt to create an authentic feel of some sorts. Since I do not cook much, the tiles do not bother me.
So even if all the old stuff is still there it is neat enough for me. I consider it a work in progress. You have to admit it is much clearer than before. And Bono abides. Does anybody else here feel like sharing interior business? We could exchange great insights and perhaps stuff that comes to light?

I like that you lightened it up with the white paint. It's  a nice room. Might we see more? I'm thrilled you've gotten your own place--how close to the ocean is it? You deserve this. You've worked very hard. I'd like to share pix of some rooms in my house. Not those with too much clutter that needs to be cleaned out, obviously--actually, this would be more incentive to take care of that problem.

Thanks for your comments, Pinkie. Please share some pictures of your own.

I am just an average working person I guess. And I am on sick leave right now. Do not we all deserve a roof to live under? Hmm, I have no access to my pictures at the moment. I killed the adaptor. The computer store does not have any in stocky. They will call me Tomorrow. I expect that some nasty computer surprise is about to unfold right underneath my runnung nose.

Well of course I prefer the white as they are very similar to my own kitchen.  I am, in fact changing my kitchen (hopefully work starts next month) but to light wood and have new oven and hob (mine also sunken into the worktop).  I have tiles behind the work units and stove which I like, but not sure yet if I will replace them again and keep the walls just plain painted.  Not looking forward to he work as it's a total refit with everything being pulled out and replaced.  Last time I just changed the doors and handles.  Such an inconvenient room to be overhauled though and not looking forward to that, just the end.  I do like your kitchen.  Very clean and crisp and bright.  I like light colours and woods.

I love what you've done to your kitchen, HulaGirl! And I'm sorry you're sick - I hope you and your computer feel better soon.
