Well I posted pictures last year of my livingroom makeover and this summer I layed a new floor in my kitchen, it was a pain but I love it .  So yesterday I picked up some fresh flowers and cleaned my kitchen for a tea party/stitch and bitch...everything looked pretty and bright and I used the last of my Mrs.Meyers honeysuckle so it smelled wonderful I just had to snap some pictures to share my new space.  It was done on a pretty tight budget, besides the new fridge most of the budget was spent on the floor.  I decorated with items from the thrift store and yardsales.  The colors were inspired by 2 cast iron sinks, last year I was at our local Habitat for Humanity and I spyed a pile of wooden crates.  In the crates were new vintage sinks.  I couldn;t decide between the hot pink or the sky blue some I splurged 20 bucks each and purchased them both.  A few months after I purchased them a good friend closed on her house , I was still debating which sink and what color floor when she let me know how much she love love loved the pink sink.  So i gave it to her as a house warming gift.  Which worked out since she had it installed and I found out they were undermounts *sigh* and I would have to rip out my lime countertops to install it.  Needless to say I held on to my sky blue sink for another day/project.  I am pretty happy with my mini remodel....

This is my kitchen before...

Pretty lack luster and basic...I hated the floor it showed every scrap and bit of dirt.

This is the after....

I hope you have enjoyed my make over, I have a tendency to clutter so I try an edit myself often.  I hope to post pictures of my craft room and retrofied patio soon.

EDIT*** Thanks so much for the responses!  The floor is Composite VInyl from Rave Collection in "Bikini Blue" and "Shocking" ...I spent forever ripping up the sheet vinyl and cutting the tiles to fit, it was a paint but so worth it.  I will try and snap a good picture of the blue sink to add, its a little hard to see in its crate.  Oh also the paint in the kitchen is Behr - Spring Meadow...

May I ask what brand paint and paint color you used?  I want to do my kitchen in a lime green too and this is pretty darn close to what I want for my kitchen.  The colors for my kitchen will be lemon, lime, and orange. Smiley  Thanks!

I absolutely love what you have done to your kitchen.  Oh wow.  I love the bright colors.  I think a kitchen should be bright and cheerful and this is wonderful!  Did you just paint?? Or are there new tiles and cabinet doors?

Looks fantastic - please share what you did with the floor. I love the two colors you chose and the random tile pattern.
