Yet Another Home Improvement Project

We have been working on our kitchen since we moved in. This is what we've done so far:

-changed the pink mini-blinds to white stylish ones
-painted the whole room
-took down some sweet florescent lights and put in can lights
-ripped out carpet and linoleum and put in hardwood floor
-replaced the stove/oven
-added a built in microwave
-refaced all of the cabinets doors and drawers
-new faucet
-crown molding on the top of the cabinets
-replaced the pink tile around the fireplace with travertine
-built a mantle
-added a cool light over the kitchen table

Honestly, I don't think there's much else to do besides replacing the dishwasher and fridge (we really want a black fridge, but don't get us started on that!) and the countertops. I don't mind the countertop at all so we're in no hurry. We probably won't do anything with it unless it gets ruined. With three children, that's a serious possibility, but for now, I think we might be done. Here's some pictures of our new backsplash.

hmmm... those look like roses on the counter... could it be? YES!!! Ben bought me flowers for no reason at all. Just another reason my husband is better than yours.

That looks so great! I am very impressed by your guys' hard work. Although I just can't understand why you wouldn't want the pink tile and mini blinds.

I can't imagine anything else you could do to your kitchen to make it look better. Wish I had your eye for design!
