Finally, finally I can show you the after of the Kitchen Remodel! Im missing a few things still: artwork, a roman shade, a runner to name a few… but I just couldn’t wait until all those things are figured out. It’s such a drastic before and after it was like a secret I couldn’t tell.
Just to jog your memory, here’s the before money shot.
I went with whites, grays, and brass touches in this room. I wanted an airy, open and mostly white kitchen with modern schoolhouse brass pendants and hardware. On determining accent color, I happened to have a ginger jar sitting out on the counter and loved the blue against the gray.
On the island, I found I needed a tray to ground some decor items and make it not feel so large and bare. This wood and brass tray I found at Homegoods was the perfect mix to give the countertop some warmth.
We went with this semi-pro faucet, and I LOVE it. Next to it, the instant hot faucet, which came with the original kitchen. I had no idea how handy this is. Warming up bottles, instant tea, and giving the macaroni water a little ‘kick start’ is nice.
As you can see here we also painted the brick, more pics of that process to come later.
We changed the double dutch door above the ovens to a single flip-top open panel. Another easy change that takes the kitchen from old to new.
If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw that I painted this chandelier Kelly green at one point. Turns out, I just didn’t like the green color with my gray walls… so I went gold.
New navy drapery to give the bamboo kitchen nook set an update. I used a performance Schumacher fabric here to make sure they don’t fade in the sunny window and little play-doh hands can touch them without me freaking out. That’s all for now, I hope you enjoy it!
