Yes, scary, I know. But it gets better. Much better. Now, the kitchen is not quite complete. We're waiting on the back splash tile to arrive and the under cabinet lights are not yet installed. And we still need to trim out the window, but here is what we have so far, which is about 90% done:
Isn't it a dramatic change?!? I feel like we are living in a brand new house! Our kitchen is one big open space that includes the dining area and a (one day soon) sitting area with a television. Here are a few pictures from those areas. We went from an old wood stove, ceramic tile and popcorn textured ceilings:
To this! Notice the nice clean walls, smooth ceilings and Brazilian Cherry hardwood! This will be our new sitting area:
And the dining area, complete with new lighting and a funky light fixture that my husband actually agreed on:
What do you think of that accent wall color, on the left? It's called Lynnhurst Rich Brown but it's so much more than just brown - it's almost a purple/burgundy/maroon. And it was so thick, it was like painting with melted chocolate! It was a bold choice, but it looks so great in person. It picks up on some of the darker specks of color in the granite countertops.
So now you can see why I've been such a bad blogger lately! While we still have some painting and other minor projects to complete, the space is functional...and clean! No more living in a dust bowl!
Now be sure to stop back by on Thursday. I'm planning a special post for a special day. Any guesses as to what it may be?!?
