[Project Notebook] Kitchen Inspiration & Plans

I have been trying to get caught up on all of my custom furniture painting orders this week so that I can tackle a project that I have been itching to do for years now...paint my kitchen cabinets! I have spent so much time pouring over decorating magazines and pinning my favorite kitchens and I am so ready to get this thing going. And, I know there has been more than one [Project Notebook] posts devoted to this topic!
Like the rest of my house, I want it to be eclectic and collected, with a mix of modern country and vintage styles. And, we've been doing bits here and there...we added in the stainless island and reworked the light with a drum shade last year.  This year I painted the back splash with chalkboard paint and bought that country cupboard a couple of weeks ago.
Here is my plan...cannot wait!

So to recap, I'm doing open upper cabinets, lots of chalkboard, glass and pewter hardware, white shades, white upper cabinets with dark lower cabinets, neutral gray walls and a pretty, light colored counter top.
And here are some of favorite inspiration pictures for styling kitchen spaces.

I can't wait to share my progress and I hope this gets done sooner, rather than later!
