It's been so long ago that I couldn't find the "before" pictures I took so I had to use the realtors photos (above). So here is our almost completed kitchen before and after! This room got a pretty substantial amount of updates. We had a new oven put in and the old countertop stove removed along with the old oven in the cabinet. We put down new countertops and extended the length of the counter, painted the cabinets to a more stark white (they were creamy off white before), put in a new dishwasher, replaced the sink with a white porcelain farmhouse sink, installed a new faucet, added a small backsplash, created a below counter open cabinet for the microwave so we could have more countertop space, replaced the light fixture above the table, and repainted the whole room.
There are still a few things we need to get done. We still haven't bought a new cabinet door to cover the giant hole from the oven being removed, we need to replace a piece of trim around the entryway that's missing, I want to paint the refrigerator to a very very pale color like I did at the other house, and eventually we want to rip up this laminate to reveal the hardwood underneath. That part will be a big job so it's something we decided to put off for a bit but it always irks me knowing there are beautiful hardwoods just begging to breathe below my feet. :O
Our awesome friend Blake Behr created the gorgeous green light fixture over our table that you see in photos below. I am absolutely smitten with it. You should definitely check out his and our friend Dustin's new Etsy shop for more industrial style light fixtures and home accessories!
