BIG, HUGE, EXCITING week over here! Progress has been made in our kitchen remodel. Cabinet doors were taken down. The existing cabinets were re-faced with actual wood that was cut to fit my cabinets. I had THIS company in CT do it, you can search cabinet re-facing in your area. If you go the route of painting, my favorite white paint from Benjamin Moore is Mountain Peek White.
You can read more about the counter tops and the process in our kitchen HERE.
One of my favorite parts was the wood piece in between the cabinets that was blocking some of the window was taken down,
so much brighter now!
We have been working on repairing the ceiling. The cabinet company had a piece of wood to put on the ceiling, luckily I was home when they started to put it up and I could put a stop to that idea… yikes!
The inside of the cupboards are obviously the original dark. I lined the shelves with fabric I had, it ties in the floor and helps to freshen up the inside.
Here is a peek at the doors and the gold hardware. My daughter walked in from school after the doors were on and said “wow this looks so pretty Mom.” She made my day. This is why I create beautiful spaces for moments like this.
Last week I talked about the Ikea faucet we were having installed but we had to change it up. The one from Ikea had a really short base that goes through the counter and sink. The cabinet installer couldn’t find a extender that would work with it, something to consider when working with Ikea. I didn’t want to wait for a plumber to come before I got water, so I ran to Home Depot and found THIS ONE, I actually had it in my Utah home and really love it.
The cabinets before had this dead space to the right of the hood. I had them add a spice rack in that wasted space, I need all the storage I can get and I like the look better too.
Started my favorite part, adding in accessories. I found these antlers at an antique shop. Along with a new marble top dining table, I still need to paint the base and will show that next week. I have been adding in gold accents and my backsplash was put in!
I love that I can actually take pictures in my kitchen now. We all know that an ugly background just doesn’t fly, no matter how cute the kids are… we all notice what’s going on in the background:)
Excited to share the final revel next Thursday. Almost as excited that my garbage disposal was finally installed yesterday!
No more scooping up discarded food for this girl.
