Kitchen {the AFTERS!}

The other day someone asked to see how my kitchen turned out. I naturally went to this little piece of internet to find an after shot and GASP, I never took ACTUAL after shots? I left you high and dry after the grout when in. MY B! So, what better time to show you the TRUE afters now that the APPLIANCES came! Woo! Hurrah! There are a few shots of my kitchen that I just never show because, I'm pretty such you are ALL jealous of my oven and I just don't want you to feel bad about yourself...

(that scalloped vent hood though!) MOVING ON... here's what we started with!

Orange, dark, dated.

And then the heavens parted and light...all the LIGHT!

First, we demoed the existing countertops and took off the cabinet doors. Then we made all the things white, and had butcher block countertops installed. I painted and installed new cabinet doors and hardware which made a HUGE difference. Then the granite bar top was put in, and tile was installed and grouted and WE ARE DONE!

HUGE shout outs go to my Dad ((and Roger!) who helped de-mantle the sink, install a dishwasher (which, omg how did I live before that!), and remove the old appliances without blowing up my house), my Mom (who is a rockstar painter and didn't complain once about having to paint the walls a million times), the boy (who is my demo king and overall stress level supporter) and my sisters (for coming over and painting for HOURS with me). You guys are pretty awesome.
