Kitchen Reveal

 So we had almost every room in our house painted before we moved in. The kitchen was done before because I could not live with black and red paint. We also painted over the chalkboard paint that was covering the whole bar. It was a great idea, but I do not want chalk all over my house. We chose seashell gray by Valspar, most of our home is painted in this color. It's a great neutral. 
I was thinking about putting up a tile back splash, but that would cost a few hundred dollars. The back plash we went with I actually found on Pinterest. It's vinyl! It was easy to put up and it looks great! It will be much easier to remove for the next owners than tile (if they don't like it). You can find it on Pinterest here,  and purchase it at Landee On Etsy. 
You can check out Landee's blog here. 
She was great to work with, she also has other great vinyl products. The total for this back splash was less than $100, which I think is great! That is all I have done to decorate the kitchen so far. I'm thinking maybe a metal EAT sign above the cabinets would look good.

One small thing in my kitchen that I love is this soap dispenser/sponge holder. I bought it at Marshall's for $7! It's so handy, and keeps the sink looking tidy.
