Beautiful Kitchen Update
The kitchen is finished and it is absolutely gorgeous! We started March 9 and it took a good month (or more) to get it to this point. If you’re interested in reading about our process click here, here and here.
Here is one last “before” picture just for kicks. In a word, brown.
And our *new* kitchen……..
In a word, GORGEOUS.
What we did: painted cabinets, painted walls, installed tile back splash, and new light fixtures. And since we’re DIYers it all cost under $500! Winning. In an effort to avoid a snarky comment from Bill I should mention – I told Bill I had this great idea for a “weekend” project and I worked on it for about 1 weekend and then he worked on finishing it for weeks and weeks. He’s the greatest
We also updated the sink area by installing pullouts on the “fake” drawers under the sink. Perfect area to stash the bottle brush and sink plug.
We also changed out the accessories in the “dining room”area. We use to have large fruit prints up and now we have some lovely white dishes.
I am loving my *new* kitchen. I’m even inspired to keep it cleaner than I use to Of course, we are not completely finished! We want to add some “pops” of color, some DIY subway artwork, and “EAT” on one wall. And my goal is to sell our current dining room chairs and buy some new ones like these from West Elm (and I just noticed that the color scheme exactly matches our new kitchen!)
So, here is where we got our new stuff:Cabinets: Rustoleum Cabinet Transformations in Pure White (no glaze)
Paint: Martha Stewart Cement Gray
Track Lighting: Lowe’s or Home Depot
Pendant Light: Hampton Bay (Home Depot)
Tile: American Olean (I think) Matte Gray 2X3
