Grand Kitchen Reveal....Finally!!!!!

The day has finally arrived my friends! After nearly two years my kitchen redo is complete and ready to be shared!!! I'm just going to get right to it since you've waited long enough!

For those of you who missed my sneak peek post last week here are the before pictures:







 And the long-awaited after:

The flooring did not get changed and while I'm not crazy about it, it's still in nice enough condition that it's not a priority right now. 


We used bead board wallpaper and small trim on the flat faced cabinet doors. 



You can find out more about the pallet cabinet HERE and the door shelves HERE


The window trim and baseboards are the Cottage Collection from Home Depot. We are slowly replacing all the trim in our house with this. I love it!


You can find the second pallet cabinet HERE and the barn wood shelves HERE








 We used chair rail and actual bead board for the backsplash. 

 Grain scoop utensil holder!

We made our own countertop with 2 - 2 x 10 boards and 1 - 2 x 8 board. The cracks were filled with wood filler, stained and sealed with polycrylic. We got the inspiration for the countertop from this post HERE






 We added brackets under the counter overhang for a pretty finishing touch. 


So there you have it!! What do you think?!? 

Kitchen Details:
Wall color: Parchment White by Glidden
Cabinet color: Pure white Behr
Bead board wallpaper: Amazon.com
All trim, baseboard, chair rail and bead board purchased from Home Depot

Any other questions just let me know!!! 

If you'd like to see sneak peeks throughout the week and other inspiration, be sure to follow me on Facebook!!

  46. Love your kitchen. We bought a house with a 70's kitchen, also. I repainted the cabinets last year (before I got pg) and now want to get going again and do the countertop. How is the DIY wooden counter holding up? I had thought of making one from some of our left over wood flooring, but the idea of the 2x10s amd 2x8 is easier and thick without faking the thickness (something I was trying to figure out if we used our wood flooring). Thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  47. What a B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L makeover! It's fresh, with great vintage charm as well. Love it.

  64. Wow! Amazing difference while still keeping a lot of the original elements in tact! Where did you get (or perhaps, did you make?) the white-wash cabinets that are between the stove and fridge and the one with all the shelves above it? I LOVE them!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow! You must be heaven in this new kitchen! We are moving next year so I have stopped making any new renovations or changes. You are one lucky cook!

    I am co-hosting this week on the Fluster's Creative Muster Party. Thanks for sharing your creations with us! I hope you found inspiration in all of the terrific posts.

  78. Hello, I'm visiting from The Shabby Creek Cottage. I do not believe I've seen your blog before but let me tell you, I am VERY impressed with your lovely kitchen redo. It is so pretty and bright and fresh that I don't even mind the faux-brick flooring; in fact, it interjects a bit of old-fashioned whimsy, rather like a 1950's style linoleum - you probably aren't old enough to remember that kind of flooring :) I love the various collections you've showcased here and there too - the rolling pins, I got such a kick out of them. How well I remember one of my grandmas making delicious pie crusts (and the best-tasting insides ever known to mankind) with an old rolling pin - with worn off red-painted handles, LOL! So many memories. While I have seen flat-panel cabinets trimmed out in other kitchens, a look I love, by the way, I think yours is the first I've seen beadboard wallpaper used inside the trim "panels" as an additional, and I just love the look. I am absolutely amazed how much storage you have packed into your "decorative accents." Just altogether excellent planning. And yeah, I know personally how long it takes to pull a project together sometimes. Life gets in the way :) An excellent job, I will be checking in on your blog from now on to see what you're up to.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Your kitchen is lovely! And beadboard wallpaper is briliiant. I'd love if you'd come share at Inspire Us Thursday at Organized 31. http://organized31.blogspot.com/2013/06/inspire-us-thursday-link-party-3.html

    ReplyDelete
  80. Excellent work! I actually had to scroll back up to see if the floors were the same. They look a lot better against the white cabinets, so don't let them bug you too much. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Absolutely a beautiful kitchen makeover. I love the use of beadboard wall paper and trim. That cabinet tucked next to your stove is so adorable. Where did you get it?

    ReplyDelete
  82. Wonderful job! The white brought out details I didn't notice at first. For example, the scallop detail over the sink. I know you had fun collecting and great anticipation to finish the kitchen so you could display. The back splash idea is great. The new "homemade" counter top actually compliments the floor (like mine) you had to keep. Just love all the other little architectural details you added. Amazing and so enJOYed this post.

    ReplyDelete
  83. oh my gosh, what a truly vintage and collected kitchen! I love the way you used all those items as décor and grouped them together. amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Nice work! I finally got over from a linky party at Redoux to see the great changes. I know how hard it is to paint cabinets and your trim really makes them fine. Keep Creating! Cindy @ sunsetcoasting.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  85. What do I think? I think I'm astounded! At first I really thought you went out and bought all new cabinets. It was the darling scalloped trim that made me look twice. I LOVE the kitchen. You deserve a big pat on the back! I'm pinning this for future reference!

    ReplyDelete
  86. beautiful! Such a transformation...may I ask where you purchased the brackets for your open shelving? thanks,

  106. I notice you don't have a hood over your stove. Just curious, because I want to redo our kitchen which was remuddled before we bought it. My oven currently doesn't have a hood - it was low and we kept bumping our heads on it, it was ugly and it didn't vent to the outside anyway. I'd like to keep it off and remove the cabinet above it. Do the shelves above your stove get greasy without the hood?

    ReplyDelete
  107. Would you share more detailed info on how you did the wallpaper beadboard and molding on the cabinet doors?

    ReplyDelete
  108. I just found you through "Timewashed'. Your kitchen reno is amazing ! The layout was perfect already wasn't it and what you have done to transform your kitchen is simply beautiful. Now I am going to have a read through your lovely blog to see what else you have been creating !

  109. Finally Remember how I found you, I saw your gorgeous kitchen on Pinterest!!! i've wanted to do this to my kitchen for a while now, but my husband wants to move and doesn't think painting our out dated cabinets will look good. :( here's to hoping I can do it in my next house!! lol!!

Your vintage collection of kitchen ware is lovely and unique and it goes perfect in this new transformation.
