The kitchen redo is done!

Well...almost. The only thing left to put up is a pendant light over the sink. I haven't found what I want yet and I couldn't wait any longer for this reveal. I love my new kitchen! It is so much brighter and has a more timeless feel. First and foremost I want to thank my wonderful husband for all his hard work on this project. If not for his patience and "mad skills" this kitchen redo would not be what I envisioned. Thanks honey, I owe you BIG time!

Now this is what our kitchen used to look like.
As you can see I had an obsession with feathered barnyard animals

This is our kitchen now!

What we did

  1. Oak hardwood floors throughout  kitchen

  2. Granite counter tops

  3. Paint

  4. Interior doors throughout the house

  5. Oiled rubbed bronze doorknobs

  6. Bead board back splash with frame

  7. Bead board panels with trim on wall

  8. Bead board on soffice

  9. Bead board under bar

  10. Koler smart divide sink

  11. Moen oiled rubbed bronzed faucet

  12. Changed all light fixtures--ceiling, breakfast table, over sink( to come)

  13. New bar stools and chairs around table. Kept the antique table I already had.

  14. New rug under table

  15. Changed all cabinet hardware---oiled rubbed bronze

  16. Took doors off of cabinets over fridge and put baskets in the space

  17. Put glass in cabinet next to oven

  18. Add brackets under cabinets

  19. Woven wood shades on windows

 The decor is a mix of old and new. Kept cost down by shopping discount stores---Love TG Maxx
The green paint color doesn't show up as well in the photos---It's kind of a minty-sagey green, really fresh looking. The color is called "Weathered stucco" from Sherman Williams from their Charleston color collection. The trim and cabinets are an off white.

This project started in January of this year. I think it was worth all the hard work and time. My family is enjoying the space very much, and since I love being in the kitchen I am cooking more, which those who know me know cooking is something I don't do often!

I would love to read your comments on my kitchen.
Did you spot any of my feathered friends in the new kitchen?

Look what I won!

Please go to the following link and check out Suzanne's blog. She had a give away for one of these wristlets. I'm getting # 7. I wish I could sew. The only sewing I do is on paper when I scrapbook.
Thanks Suzanne!
