New Kitchen

I am beyond thrilled with how our kitchen redo turned out.  It has come a long way.  Just a reminder of the before.

I thought I had more pictures of the before, but cant find them at the moment, that's another project,
Organize my Pictures.

Enough with the small talk, here’s what you want to see.

Step on in….

How do you like my tablecloth drapes?    Here’s a close up.

I moved the cabinet into the middle of the room but I still need to repaint it to match the white on the cabinets or maybe paint it a fun color.

Notice the new hardware, it really makes a difference in the complete look as does the added crown molding to the top of the cabinets.

A few things you might want to know:
Cabinet Color:  Ballet White by Benjamin Moore mixed in Valspar Paint
Wall Color:  Bedford Gray by Martha Steward mixed in Valspar Paint
Cabinet Knobs:  Target Clearance isle (only 98 cents each)
Drawer Pulls:  Lowes (approximately 4.00 each)
Flooring:  Swiftlock from Lowes (only 10.00 a box regular price was 26.00 a box)

I still have some tweaking to do, like figure out what to do with this wall of gray because my handmade apron looks a little lonely.

So what do you think of our redo.  I’d love to hear your thoughts and suggestions for this blank wall.

I'm linking up to these fun parties, make sure you buzz by and leave them some comment love

  8. Great makeover! The cabinets turned out great.

    I am kicking myself for not scooping up those table cloths at TJMaxx a while back (before we moved and I had no where to use them) They look really great in your breakfast area.

    Oh, and the new blog makeover looks great too.

  18. stopping by from wow us wednesdays. this is lovely. I vote that the island should be a different color. that would be the icing on the cake. turquoise? red? or even gray.
    that empty wall could be a great chalkboard...
    i had a smidge of empty wall in my kitchen and made a magnetic photo gallery. maybe something along those lines?
