Kitchen Reveal!

As promised, I’ve completed the Kitchen project and am ready to reveal to you the glorious after pics! I’m just elated and in love with my kitchen! Drum-roll please…


And for comparison, this is what my kitchen looked like before.

What a difference, huh?! This was not a major remodel — only surface/cosmetic changes were made. This proves that you can get major dramatic results without investing a lot of money in your kitchen. In the next couple weeks I’ll be detailing the different projects that completed this kitchen makeover. Here are some of the highlights!

    I’m in awe of your beautiful kitchen. My husband and I are about to embark on a kitchen redo and I love love love your colors. Do you know what color your granite is? Thanks!

      Hi Kate, thanks so very much! I’m not sure. It was put in by the builders and we aren’t the original owners. I’ve seen this same granite around, so it may be something the is stock at Home Depot or Lowes. I love that when you look closely, there are brown tones as well as grey and black, mixed with a soft green!

    Looks fantastic Mary. I have the exact same ‘before’ kitchen and am looking to do it up. Thanks for the inspiration. Am now following to hear all about each project. (popping over from Tip Junkie)

    I love the colours you went with and think it is much better suited than the original. I do have one slight suggestion for your readers. Painting your doors isn’t the best thing out there. If you plan on staying in your home for a long time, splurge on the new kitchen! It will also increase the value of your home.
    Paint will not last very long. Depending on what you are painting over you may end up decrease the value of the kitchen. Ex. You have real maple or oak doors and you paint them.
    My father is a cabinet maker, so I have seen a lot.
