Kitchen Spruce Up Part 2

We (Chris) have been hard at work updating our home. When we bought it, we didn’t really see any areas that needed too much updating, but of course the longer I am in a space, the more I want to change it. As I’ve mentioned before, our kitchen was my least favorite part of the house. Last year when we moved in we did a little updating by changing out the backsplash and appliances. Over the past couple months, we (Chris) updated the cabinets, lighting, and fixtures/hardware. Here’s some reminders of where we started…

Before: (These were actually the listing photos from Realtor.com. Sorry previous owners, the rest of your home was lovely!!!)

That backsplash though!

It was functional and had lots of space and storage, but not my style at all.

Here’s some pictures of what it looked like shortly after we moved in and did a little updating…we added bead board under the bar, put in a subway tile backsplash, and put in new appliances.

Getting brighter!

I thought I was good with that previous re-model until I lived in it a year and stared at it long enough to realize, nope, it needs more! So here’s how it looks now!

So much lighter and brighter and ME!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chris! This cabinet refinishing project took about 35 hours to complete. So much sanding and painting! I love how it brightens everything up and is so much cheerier! It feels clean and airy and much bigger. We don’t get much natural light in this room, so this was the face lift it needed!

Again, thank you Chris! I promise to give you at least a month or so before I start bugging you to consider doing something about updating those floors… 🙂 Also, I promise that as long as you never ask me to move again, you’ll never have to refinish kitchen cabinets again.  (Notice I specified KITCHEN. The bathroom cabinets still need some TLC, hun.)Love you!
