My Zesty New Kitchen Reveal #GetZesty

I really have felt for a while that my kitchen lacked any kind of zest. I was determined to create a new space with some fun colors and an actual design. You can check out my kitchen before and see how  bland and boring my kitchen was. It lacked proper organization and flow so I also decided to create some actual function as well.

I’ll admit now that when I think of zesty I think of bright and bold things. My favorite color is yellow so I really wanted to be surrounded by my favorite color. I decided to head to some of my favorite home stores and look for some bright accessories for my kitchen. I also really needed something for my flour and sugar so I was really looking for something to take all that clutter off my counter tops.

I found some adorable bright towels, butter dish, and containers for some of the items I use most. I also decided to move my stand mixer and I decided to get a new toaster as well.

I also added a new kitchen mat and I just love it!

I have to say I love my new giant fork and it looks great in the kitchen on the wall. I also added a wall decal and I think it really looks like a completely different space which is exactly what I wanted.

Once my kitchen was all done I actually felt really inspired to spend some time cooking so I decided to just dirty up my freshly redone kitchen and create something zesty.

I decided to add Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing to some mini brussel sprouts. I simple tossed in a little of the Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing and roasted for 20 minutes at 375 degrees. It’s a simple side dish that will surprise your family – I have to say mine really enjoy it!


Kraft Italian Dressing only has one goal in mind… tantalizing your tastebuds. And we’re always looking for new ways to help you amp up your zest appeal. Like what you see? Let our Zesty Guy show you even more ways to spread a little zest at getmezesty.com.

    We recently got new cabinets in our kitchen but I never updated our décor and after looking at how you decorated yours I am getting inspired to getting started on it now!

    Great, has a nice spring look. I especially like the decal above the cooktop, I really need something like that for the same area. Mine has been blank forever, can’t make up my mind on what to put on it.

    OOH I absolutely love how you accented with yellow. I had a yellow kitchen in Florida that I LOVED. Adore the wall decal, great job!
