Hi Everyone!
I am new to the forums, but I have loved reading everyone's great ideas and input so far. I have just purchased a house with my husband - to- be and we have a kitchen that is nice and open. The problem is I would love to update it a bit. We do not have a lot of money to spend on reno so I want to keep it as budget friendly as possible. For that reason, the floor and countertops have to stay. I have read the posts about taking out the oak trim (which as you can see has already been painted) and I love that idea! Does anyone else have any imput or ideas? Thanks so much!

I suggest you also try to get Christmas-themed home furniture

Thanks everyone for the great response. I love the table that was suggested, that is right on tract with what I was thinking. The blinds from IKEA would also look really great in there. I will keep everyone updated on what we decided to do. I am glad boxing day is coming up soon - hopefully we will find some great deals!
