At last... the transformation!

Thanks for being patient! Here are the long awaited AFTER shots of our kitchen...

NOTE: (Below) Please ignore the big white spot on the far right wall. We didn't get the hood vent box back up yet but I was too eager to post pictures and went ahead with them anyway. When it is actually up, it'll be the color of the wall in order to blend in.


Scroll down to the last post to see the BEFORE shots again. It makes the overall affect so much stronger when you see how nasty it was before.


We're extremely happy with the result and would both agree that all the work was totally worth it. It feels like a brand new kitchen and every time I walk into this room now, I can't help but smile. We just LOVE it!!


The next project is painting out the grey walls on the rest of the main floor and then everything in the way of reno's will be done (other than framing up the basement, but that will be an ongoing thing). Its going to look fantastic when its all done!

beautiful BONNIE!! Did you paint your cupboards or are they entirely new? That is a HUGE difference! Well done~~~~

Fantastic result and you guys are still married at the end of it :o) It's beautiful, what a difference. Great job.

We've just moved in and have to put in a kitchen downstairs for Kortni and Joel. Any advice?

Heidi-- we reused our existing cabinets. Just had them sandblasted to strip them down to the original oak, then had them restained and lacquered. So its the old stuff... just looks like new :)

Looks great Bonnie! Though I have to admit, your original kitchen was still pretty nice!!

Sally said...

Amazing. What are your counters made of? I can't wait to do home improvement projects someday. Work yes, but there are some amazing benefits as well. I'm so glad that you're pleased with the results. :)

Looks great!

Hey, I have been meaning to ask you something. Trev and I discovered the marble game at Craig and Jen's. Is there any way I can get ahold of Grandpa Esau so that we can buy a marble board if he sells them? Trev loves that game!

Man, I wish I went to the MCC thing now. :0) $25 is good. It will be our Christmas game this year. Let me know if you can get one for us.
Thanks!
