Over the last year or so, we’ve updated our kitchen a little here and there…right now, I think it’s totally updated and we’re finished 🙂 . Our kitchen expands the entire house (we have both windows facing the front and windows facing the back), and it’s where we spend most of our time (especially me!). In fact, I’m typing this right now from the bar in the kitchen. So, I wanted to brighten and lighten things up a bit while still keeping it “cozy” (because you know that’s my jam!).
Here are a few pics of the finished product along with any sources you might want.
If you forgot, here is what it looked like before (minus the fall decorations)…
…I still love it, but it was a bit dark.
…just a bit brighter!!
Here’s another before…
…yay!! I am so happy with the changes!
So, here’s a quick rundown of what we did…
1: We replaced all of the Alaska White granite with quartz in “Calcutta”.
2: We repainted all of the cabinets. Originally, the island was painted this blue/gray Sherwin-Williams mix and then “antiqued” with a black stain while the other cabinets were cream and “antiqued” with a brown stain. We sanded and repainted all of the cabinets. The island is still a blue/gray combo (just not “antiqued”) and the other cabinets are now a nice, bright Sherwin-Williams paint called Antique White (which is our trim color in the entire house, our wall color throughout the house is Sherwin-Williams Kilim-Beige) and also not “antiqued”.
3: We replaced the barstools and have these now.
4: We replaced the light fixtures over the sink and have these now.
5: We replaced the faucet with this one.
6: We replaced the knobs and pulls.
7: We replaced the handles on the fridge with these.
8: We bought a new rug from Builders Carpet & Design Center here in McKinney.
9: We bought the new doorknob here.
So, there you go! I wish I could have you all over for coffee and a bundt cake 🙂 .
Happy Monday! xo
