Remodel 2012 :: The FINAL Reveal!

It's been a long time coming, but our patience definitely paid off!
I hope you enjoy the tour of our newly remodeled kitchen!

O, wait! Before you begin, here is all that has changed since the beginning,
just so you can appreciate it as much as I do!

New cabinet doors and faces
Display cabinets built in empty space of cabinets
Lighting in Display cabinets
Recessed lighting throughout kitchen
Hardwood floors, installed by my amazing hubby!
Yours truly painted the cabinets, like a professional (more to come on that)
Granite countertops
Subway Tile backsplash
Kitchen sink
Knobs & Pulls

Whew! That's quite a list, and I am so thankful for each item above. We had been wanting to begin this project for at least a year and a half, and it was truly worth the wait. We saved, saved, saved and it was so worth it in the end, when we were able to pay for it all up front and not take out a loan. Something else I did was a lot of research...which led me to find all of these amazing inspiration photographs.  Personally, I think it's the spitting image of a few & love how it turned out. I wouldn't change anything about it!

Enjoy your tour!

I just have to say this...
I am borrowing the current kitchen runner from here but found some amazing ones at Dash and Albert that I currently have my eye one. The plan is also to display my china in the lighted cabinets...taking my to-do-list one day at a time!

::The BEFORE picture::

This is actually WAY before ... 

Original choice of paint color 
(I always wanted a yellow kitchen, but it did not work in this space)
Tile floors
Old bar stools
Cluttered countertops
Random decor above cabinets...there was just too much empty space up there!
We had upgraded our appliances! which initially made a huge difference.

countertops & new sink are installed::

I hope you enjoyed seeing the transformation as much as we did!


  1. Liz! It looks great!! It's pretty darn close to my dream kitchen :)

  2. Very Nice Job! I know how difficult it is to live through a remodeling project, as I have just completed one myself. I'm sure you will enjoy the completed kitchen.

  3. Wow! What a change. It looks fantastic! I love the lighted cabinets above. We have a soffit that I've thought of ripping out and adding more cabinets. Maybe will have to get in line in my list of projects. I'm visiting from Between Naps on the Porch.

    Have a lovely week!

  4. OMGoodness! what an amazing "after"! the lighted cabinets look like the sun is coming in and are lovely. well done!


  5. Oh how gorgeous!! I am in the middle of redoing mine in such a similar color scheme!! Just beautiful! Came over from the HOH party.

  6. What a fabulous transformation! I'm jealous of those lovely lighted cabinets above. (Our soffit has plumbing running through it-- not what you want on display!) Gorgeous countertops!

  7. Great transformation. The white cabinets are really pretty.

  8. What a transformation! I love it! Thanks for sharing over at The Winthrop Chronicles!

  9. What a stunning kitchen, I like the sunken sink it looks really sleek and clean. I hope to do my kitchen this year, just trying to finish one reno before I start another but its hard to resist doing the kitchen. Such an important part of the home. Yours looks amazing, great job!

  10. Crisp and bright! Love all the white! Great job. I'm debating painting my honey oak builder grade cabinets right now. White? or Dark? After seeing yours...I am thinking white!!
    ps. visiting from your feature at House of Hepworths!

  11. You are GENIUS! I have been struggling with finding cabinets that are reasonably priced or even scarier, building my own cabinets to go above. Seeing that you simply created cabinet FRONTS - I wanted to jump up and down screaming for joy! Brilliant! You just made my project hit fast forward!!!!! Oh thank you oh thank you!


thank you for your sweet comments! i hope you enjoyed your time at a peace of home today.
