Kitchen Renovation | After

You guys...my kitchen will never be this clean again!

Kitchen RevealI actually took these pictures a couple weeks before we officially moved in so I could share them with my local Habitat For Humanity ReStore. We purchased our cabinetry from there and I wanted to show them what we did with it. I don't think I even cooked a meal in the kitchen prior to taking these photos!

As I said, the cabinets are from the ReStore. Here's what they looked like before my mom and I painted them:

We used two cans of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen to paint the entire cabinetry. I wanted to paint the cabinets because they were in rough shape and I love painted cabinetry.

I'll have to do a post all about how we painted the cabinets. I will tell you this, though, painting with chalk paint really is the best.

We decided to remove the original cabinetry because even though it was handmade, it was in poor condition.  I also hated the wrap around that the old kitchen had.  By re configuring the layout, we ended up adding several more cabinets than what was previously there.  By removing the door where the refrigerator is now, we were also able to add more space.

You can read the sorry story about how I picked out my appliances here.  The refrigerator is a Whirlpool and the oven is a Maytag.

We have a Delta faucet and double sinks.  No link for the sinks because the company that installed the granite brought the sink and put it in.  We never actually saw the sink until the install.

We decided to do the same flooring throughout the entire house.  It was supposed to be super easy to install, but my husband hated installing it!  I like it because it was budget friendly and waterproof.

We chose a granite counter top that we ended up having professionally installed because our price included free installation.  We chose granite because even though it was fairly expensive, it was cheaper than quartz yet only a few dollars more per square foot than the less expensive options.  I couldn't find a link for the exact color, but it was available at our local Home Depot.

So there you have it!  In case you missed it, you can check out my 'before' photos here.  This kitchen has made a huge transformation!
