Kitchen inspiration!

Like I said in my last post, I'm trying really hard to make this house a home. I'm trying to put our personal touch here, in case God decided we'll live here forever. I don't want to live in a house that I hate, so I NEED to get a bit creative.

If you don't know, we live in a very cookie-cutter new construction home. Of course as newlyweds, this house was perfect- cheap, clean, and move-in ready.

Here's the outside: 

Super old pic, but the outside hasn't really changed!
Oh how I wish I could turn back time.

Our HOA sucks and doesn't let us do hardly anything to the outside of our home without jumping through a million zillion hoops ( I so long for a brightly colored door!) so that's a HUGE pain. The inside is where I have to let creativity take over.

Now that we don't have to worry about showing the home-I'm going crazy. Seriously. I'm starting with the kitchen and living room. Here is what our kitchen looks like as of now:

So I lied when I said, "as of now". This is another older pic, but the only thing that has changed is the table. Yup, my sink still looks like that too.

Here are some of my Pinterest posts that I'm using as inspo for our kitchen:

No top cabinets, lots of white and distressed wood, white bottom cabinets....

These are the visions swirling in my head! This will probably take awhile because of funds...but hopefully I'll be able to share some of the little steps we'll be taking to get there!
