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