The Kitchen: Before and After!

Wednesday, February 21, 2007

Okay, the kitchen is almost done. I still haven't painted the counter, but that can wait until this weekend (or maybe even next). To remind you, here's a shot of the kitchen 'before.'

And here, after a weekend of grueling labor is the kitchen 'after.'

Doesn't it look great? I am genuinely please with the results, even if the blue didn't work out exactly as planned: The contrast between the white exteriors and blue interiors is really, really subtle, but, oh well. And here's a snap of my cookbooks and various bits of dishware on their new bookshelf. So, that's the makeover for now, I'll shoot the final results when everything is in its place and ready.

It looks incredible! And I noticed the contrast in the cabinets immediately. (of course I already knew about it, but still?) What a difference. It's CUTE now, not a word someone would have used before. You did a great job. Thanks for the inspiration.

And I like the contrast of the counter - I wouldn't paint it white.

I'm just looking at your kitchen now for the first time, and it looks wonderful! Bookcase turned out great, too. I agree with the idea of a contrasting countertop and like the idea of cement gray--and if it looks bad, a faux granite on top. As to the toilet seat, you might look for something really weird--I'll tell you about one I saw recently.

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad everyone thinks the work paid off. I agree that white is not the way to go for the counter, but what about grey?

Or a darker shade of the blue on your tea kettle?

Can't wait to see the real thing in April.
