And BAM! There. She. Is.
Right there is a lot of brainstorming, sweat, hard work, cleaning and patience! We did it babe. [High Five]
Aaron and I always wanted to update our kitchen. We spend SO much time in there, why not? After I painted our kitchen cabinets and he came home from a work trip in Texas he said, “I love it. We are re-doing it ALL.” Really? That’s all I needed to do?
Before we dig in more, feel free to catch up on the journey….
Here SHE is. The “Before.”
Our maple cabinets were in excellent condition, just didn’t want maple. I’ve never been a fan of our black floor. The hubs convinced me to decide on that last. “Let’s do the whole kitchen and if you still don’t care for the floor, we will replace it.” Okay, cool, I can work with that. There’s nothing wrong with it and it’s durable….. We are keeping it!
My mother and I painted the cabinets. Lots of work. Well worth it.
Electrician came in. Did some light removal and adding. He installed under cabinet lighting. Such a great feature. What a difference, peeps!
Counters, dishwasher and sink came OUT. We we ready for GRANITE. The hubs and I have dreamed of this day ….
We bought a new microwave because we figured it would be better to get that now with the back splash going in. We said “we can buy the rest later.” Well, we had all new appliances later that week!
Granite installed. Sink and faucet installed. Reverse osmosis updated! I searched and searched for a faucet. We fell in love with this one and do NOT regret our purchase. One review, in particular, on Amazon sold my hubby, “Great faucet. You will not be sorry you made this purchase. Your love life will improve when your wife sees it!” Too funny. If you’re interested, it’s HERE.
Crown molding added to pull everything together.
Paint. Oh, sweet paint. I had 6 or so samples on the wall. I was looking for a blue-ish color. No green. It’s hard to find that. Plus, blue is out of my element. I love brown and neutrals. We went with “Sea Salt” by Sherwin Williams. I’m. In. LOVE.
Finally, back splash. I wanted white subway title. Classic and timeless. We pulled from the gray in granite and used gray grout. I couldn’t be more pleased. PLUS, I heard many horror stories about staining on white grout. Yikes. That would NOT work well with my OCD.
I’m so happy with our remodel. What’s your favorite part?
