Finally a post about our Kitchen Update....

I have not posted pictures of our finished Kitchen....  So what exactly did we do to this Kitchen in the last year after moving in in October 2013?  I painted the cabinets with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in the color of CoCo... We put all new hinges/hardware on the cabinets.... removed the doors up in the corner on each side of the sink and had the medieval wire removed and had glass put in, plus glass shelves in the cabinets on the corner also...  We removed the flooring and had large rectangular tiles put in... we flip flopped where the sink  and dishwasher was and added a new dishwasher and a deep stainless apron front sink/new faucets, removed the old range hood and put an over the stove microwave in, (and above the microwave put in a shelf) of course we brought our stainless gas stove and refrigerator, removed the laminate counter top and replaced with granite.  I installed white subway tile for the backsplash.  We had lighting put in over the sink and also LED under cabinet lighting... (LOVE IT)  .....

On the wall below there was nothing, so we had this dresser that would not fit downstairs, Mark installed the two end cabinets and made the shelves in between them.... We made this our coffee bar.

We replaced all of the windows and now we have an awesome view of our backyard, and we can even open the side windows for a nice breeze.  (the old windows were all fogged up in between the glass and we could not open them)

So for those who have asked to see our completed kitchen...   (by the way....the door back in the corner goes to the lower level).

Happy Wednesday....


  1. Everything looks so beautiful. I love the fresh look and that blue is to die for. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. I'm picturing myself quite at home in this stunning kitchen. If I had a kitchen like that I would definitely need to learn to cook a little better. :-)
