Our kitchen has been featured in a national magazine!
The major parts of the kitchen project are all done! At the end of the gut and replace job there were still some things left to do: hem the curtains, artwork, change out microwave, touch up painting, fix holes in the ceiling but I’ve taken care of them and we are living with a finished kitchen!
To review, the major goals for the kitchen ( as first discussed in this post) were:
Replace cabinet doors and drawers and/orreplace cabinets altogether (Check!)
- Remove upper cabinets above peninsula (Check!)
- Replace countertops (I discussed options here and showed you the installation here) and add a 12 inch overhang to create a counter height bar on peninsula (Check!)
- Replace backsplash (Check!)
- Paint: trim, doors, and new wall color (Check!)
Replace current refrigerator with counter depth model(This goal has been deferred as we decided to continue using current refrigerator)
- Replace current dishwasher (Check!)
I just noticed “Replace ugly ceiling fans” wasn’t even on the list. But we can check that off too.
Here we go!
The refrigerator side of the kitchen:
The wall with the window:
The stove peninsula:
The breakfast area
I moved the bar cart from the dining room into the kitchen (and painted the door).
And put a few things on the corner shelves (seems to change frequently).
Close up of the pendant we discussed in this post and the last minute faucet.
I recently found pictures of the kitchen floor before we had it refinished and you can see a tiny glimpse of the cabinets and trim (and original oven) the way they were when we first moved in. It’s come a long way.
It’s life changing (for real, no cliche) for my vision to come to fruition. I have some DIY ideas for art
that I hope to get to soon (see that update here). Have you guys finished up any major projects? I’d love to see.
