House Envy Kitchen Remodel Reveal!

01 August 2011

House Envy Kitchen Remodel Reveal

The Kitchen Reveal
Here is what we had to work with during this kitchen project. The cabinets needed to be white but even the most magical white paint was not going to cover up the Dixie May western finish on these babies.  Q: What's a girl to do?

A: Brainstorm with your incredibly ingenious husband. 
Ding, ding, ding. 

After?  How...

Dixie May, I would like you to meet your more attractive cousin. 
Oh, by the way, we won't be seeing you anymore. 
Buh-Bye! (oh, and don't let the door hit you on the way out!)

We decided to recycle our old cabinets by adding bead board and framing the doors.

Here is a side by side comparison of before and after. We love the results!

Subway tile (My favorite and the favorite of everyone who has any sense at all!)

Butcher block countertops 

We came in under $2000 on this project by recycling our cabinets and being selective with the products we used. Yeah, us!

Now, without further adieu,
here is the final kitchen reveal!

That turned out great. Normally, I am not a fan of wood trim but with all the other wood covered up and the butchers block counters, that window looks GREAT! Wow!

Wow -- great reno! Love the freshness of the all white look and totally agree about subway tiles! Your budget was absolutely the BEST!!! Will you share what paint you used to cover all that wood? Thanks!
