to share the before and after
pictures of our kitchen renovation-
this post is picture overloaded for sure! :)
we start out here with a dark & dreary kitchen-
i actually did not get a 'real' before picture
because i was gone for the day
and came home and they had already
the cabinets were a dark cherry wood
we had the fronts redone
and then painted white
with all new black hardware
a new counter was installed and an island that matches
all done in concrete!
i also replaced some dark stools for some
industrial metal ones:)
the island was also shortened to give
us more kitchen work-space
since we rarely eat there anymore.
cluttered dark ugly shelves...
the tin cans that had been collected for years,
were cleaned and i wound up keeping THREE of them
that were from my grandma the
rest were donated to the goodwill:)
new backsplash was added,
which just makes everything
so bright and clean!
this was where we
kept the garbage can-
which is now...
a shot of the 'beautiful' light fixture
above our island then
yes, hard to not be happy when i walk
into this cheery kitchen now?!! :)
and then finally
a showcase of some of my lovelies...
against the opposite wall of the kitchen-
the top of the hutch holds
family no longer with us...
and some of my 'white' collection
then the white continues on this back wall-
a collection of milk glass and iron stone
gathered from all over the house:)
i still am not done with the window treatment...
right now there is nothing
and i am liking it...
i will not be hanging a curtain but,
am on the lookout for
white shabby corbels...
so there you go...
a mini kitchen tour-
the pictures are not the best...
although i never claimed
to be the best photographer!
i mainly wanted to show you what
i have been working on since the end
of december! HA!
the sun is shining today
and i am heading
out in an hour for
a walk/talk with a dear friend.
life is sweet
enjoy your day
