Kitchen Reveal!

And BAM!  There. She. Is.

Right there is a lot of brainstorming, sweat, hard work, cleaning and patience!  We did it babe. [High Five]

Kitchen B and A

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….

Shabby Counter Stools

DIY Industrial Paper Towel Holder

Cabinet Before 2 Cabinet Before 1 Side Cabinets

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!




No Counters

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!

Counter Install Sink Install

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.

Subway Install

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.

  1. I love, love it all! Its how much the “little” things like crown molding and extra can lighting can totally chance a space! Congratulations on all your hard work!!

    1. Thank you thank you! Yes, you’re so right. A lot of these homes were just put up! We have to do the custom pieces!

  2. This is a stunning transformation! I redid my kitchen as well. I also had Maple cabinets- like new, but I dreamed of white so I painted them. Redoing a kitchen is a lot of work, but as your results show, so well worth it!

  3. Beautiful transformation of the kitchen – I definitely love the colour, and wouldn’t have thought that it would be the choice to go for.

  6. The pictures look great! This is the direction I would like to go in our kitchen redo. I was considering painting our awful oak cabinets with Annie Sloan Old
    White. Would you mind sharing your process of painting them?

  7. Hi- I love your kitchen and found you from a google search on Annie Sloan paint reviews. Can you tell me what the name of your granite is?

  8. Your kitchen is absolutely beautiful! You really did transform the look from a builder type kitchen to a much coveted kitchen. I love it all but especially that granite.

  9. What’s my favorite part? I can’t even choose! It’s all so beautiful! We are about to embark on our own kitchen reno, and I’m a bit apprehensive about it since my husband hasn’t completely been on board the entire time. Only recently have I seen some excitement from him. Oh well, I hope it turns out as well as yours has! Just beautiful!!

  10. What a fresh update to your kitchen!!! You did such a great job with color selection – everything from the cabinets to the grout color to the walls is perfect!! Love, love, love.

  11. Oh wow…I have total kitchen envy right now. I love every single thing about your kitchen! I painted my cabinets as well (a very similar color)…now I want to do all those other things too! It’s beautiful!

  12. Could you tell me what paint you used for your cabinets? Also, what process you used to paint them. I’m doing mine this spring and can’t wait!!!

    1. Yes I did! So much easier and looks great. If you take them off, be sure to mark which door goes where because some won’t fit in other spots and you don’t want to create a mess. Our hinge hardware is on the inside of our cabinet and I painted over everything!

  13. Love your kitchen! Is your fridge counter depth because it hardly sticks out at all! I’m trying to find one with great features but that isn’t too deep. Thanks!
