My husband and I bought a "fixer-upper" about a year ago and its coming along pretty well. Pretty well that is, except for the kitchen. I really have no idea where to start. The worst part is the walls...it looks like its just a whole bunch of spackle and it covers all of the wall except one. I was thinking of making it a black and white kitchen but am open to any suggestions. I would love any and all ideas on how to make this disaster of a room look better!
As you can see, the walls are textured, and pretty ugly up close
I really don't think I want to keep the pink floor tile...
I stripped the desert themed wallpaper off the wall. The area behind it is smooth and not textured like
the rest of the walls
The tile is ugly and was never finished - there are ones missing - needs replacing
Should I keep the walls textured like they are and try painting them? If so, would a light or dark color look better? Or is there a way to get rid of them, smooth them down somehow? And what do I do with the rest of it...Please help!
