Kitchen Renovation: Before & After

Our kitchen is FINALLY done. Honestly, it was not as bad as I expected.  We started the renovation in early March. The kitchen was not functional for about 6 weeks. I have been holding off showing y'all because I was waiting on our hardware and lighting to come in, both were on back order. Story of my life. I feel like I have built up this huge, dramatic reveal and it is pretty basic. I could not be any happier. Who does not love a good before and after?

  17. This is not just any kitchen! I love it. I can't think of anything I would change if I were to design my own kitchen. I bet losing that wall made such a huge difference too. Would you mind sharing where you got your rug too?

  37. The major change with the paint gave your kitchen a fresher and lighter atmosphere. Working would totally be easier in your new kitchen environment. It also looks painstakingly lovely with the metal accents, especially with the pendant lights you used. Well done!

  38. I don't know why I'm just finding your blog, but I am 110% totally hooked. Your kitchen is ridiculous and exactly what I want! Where in the good heavens did you get your hardware and lighting?!

  39. Love your kitchen. Where are the light fixtures and hardware from? I have seen those "knobs" everywhere and want them for my grey vanity.

  40. Actually I like the renovation process that you've done on your kitchen. In kitchen all I want to do is to have pantry doors so I could be able to put excess food on it.

  41. My eyes couldn’t quite believe the splendid transformation that happened! It looks a lot better. From a dull and plain kitchen, it became a pretty classy and lively space. Words are not enough to describe how wonderful your kitchen looks. You deserve a pat in the back; it’s a well done project! #Camille Edington

  45. GORGEOUS! I love your kitchen’s new look! I think it is lovely and stylish. All the metals and chrome gave the kitchen a very sleek and sophisticatedly modern look, which I think goes very well with the whole room. The wickerwork accents, such as those baskets, give the kitchen an organic feel, which gives the room a great balance.
