More of an Update on MY Kitchen!


Well, we are getting there slowly but surely and what a difference it has made already! The room actually looks bigger and I can’t wait to see when the other side is done, there  will be such a major impact on it!  I’m loven it!



I’m so glad to say bye-bye to this orangey wood!



Here is the bottom part. When I stepped back to take a look at the whole of it I almost let it slip that “even the almond counters looked good with the white paint” so glad I caught myself in time! LOL


I love how my fridge even looks so much better with the white surrounding it!



First coat of paint that was sprayed on, I told him he did a fantastic job and he said tell them “What a fantastic husband you have” ! I don’t think he will be in to good of a mood today though, he went to the Steeler game last night with my son and the Steeler’s lost in the last 8 seconds of the game. I watched the game and just couldn’t believe it but that’s what it’s all about, my other son teaches in Annapolis and I don’t think he will have a good day either because the highschool kids all know he is a big Steeler fan. Ah, but life goes on.LOL


Now back to the kitchen! Want to see a sample of my counter top? Oh, it looks so much better than the almond don’t you think? It’s black with a little bit of tan and white mixed in, the name of it is Labrador Granite, see it was meant to be our dog is even included.!


Look how good it looks next to the fridge, I can’t wait!



I hope the next time I show you I’ll have the doors on and the drawers in with all the hardware!

I’m joining these parties today:

Amaze Me Monday at Dittle Daddle

Before and After at Thrifty Decor Chic

WOW us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style

Your kitchen is going to be gorgeous! I've never regretted painting my cabinets white. Those countertops are really pretty, too.

Gina said...

Let me first say,

"What a fantastic husband you have!" I wouldn't want him to be left out. ;D

You are moving right along & it's going to be beautiful when it's done.

How exciting. I don't know what I would be more thrilled about. The newly painted cabinets or that refrigerator! What a stunner. I have an old almond one and would love to replace it. Maybe someday. Have a great week!

Is there anything better than white paint?! Your kitchen looks great already, it will be worth all your hard work!

Jenny @ Simcoe Street said...

Oh my gosh, it is looking awesome!

Great job!!


Jenny said...

We are living the same life right now - I'm knee deep in my kitchen cabinet painting project, and feel your pain! My kitchen is completely taped off and "out of service" right now, and I'm SO ready for it to be done!!! I have one more coat of paint to do, and am so excited to see the final result!

It's looking good!! I really think it freshens up the space so beautifully!


SH said...

Yay for you!

Hi sweetie..

thanks for visiting me today and going with me to Christmas Past..

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I'll be posting my kitchen before and many afters as Ihave changed the counter decor many times.
That post will be up monday for Transformation Monday on Between Naps on the Porch- Susans blog.
She starts her party about 8 pm on sunday nights and hopefully my post will also pop up on your side bar.. Just a chance for you to see us going from oak to white and good shots of the counter top.
I hope everything is going well for you there. I know redoing a kitchen is stressful but I am sending you good energy for a great finish to your project.
looks forward to seeing you sunday night..

Oouuu! I love the counter you chose! It's going to be beautiful for sure. The white really does look so much better next to your stainless steel. Your cabinets are looking beautiful too! It's all coming together so well!

Rachel {Little Bits of Lovely} said...

Wow, your kitchen looks incredible now! Its amazing how the white cupboards completely lift the whole space - such a difference it makes! Can't wait to see the rest of your plans unfold! xx

Looking so good! I can't believe what a big job you and the hubs took on. You guys are brave. But I know in the end it will be so worth it.

Carrie @ Dittle Dattle said...

How exciting to have your kitchen redone!!! The new bright white cabinets looks fab and I bet the counter top will be the icing on the cake!!
