The Kitchen Reveal

The time has finally come.
Our kitchen is complete.
Minus window treatments
and a possible change in light fixtures.
{Especially the one over our table}
If I have something too long or make an impulse buy,
I tend to change them down the road.
While I do like our pendants, I'd switch them out
for the Visual Comfort Sloane pendant any day of the week!
Maybe someday...

I'm pretty pleased with the final space.
It proves that you don't have to gut a kitchen
down to the studs to make it current.

Here are a few before shots.

Here's how it looks now.
It's not the easiest kitchen to photograph
 as it's broken into different work spaces.
I'm definitely not a professional.

The cabinets and walls got a fresh coat of paint.
The countertops were removed
and butcher block and honed marble were installed.
All hardware was swapped for polished nickel.
All the appliances were removed and replaced
except for the double oven.
A farmhouse sink was added.

All of these changes make for a perfect kitchen for our family!

Thanks for taking a looksie!
