Finally.....The Kitchen Reveal!

Hi everyone.

Yes, I am finally getting around to showing you our updated kitchen.  It has actually been completed for several months but life has been crazy and unfortunately blogging has had to take a back seat.  I do plan on getting back to full time blogging once things settle down.

I am loving the new look of our kitchen, the stove hood and marble tile are my favorite part of the transformation.

You may remember what the kitchen looked like before.  Not bad...just a little dark for me.



Everything is finished except for installing new stainless steel appliances which will be done at a later time.  We added to the original plans by building in the microwave,  adding crown molding and tiling the back splash. 

Painting the cabinets was a job and quite time consuming.  Looking back now it was so worth the time and effort.

Thanks to my dad's help the plain sheet rock island has been changed to board and batten and bead board wallpaper.

I reverse painted this LUNCH sign on a old picture frame. 

This OYSTER sign was also one of my projects.

It all looks so good Sherry! How special that your dad had a hand in helping out.

Hope you are doing blogging has taken a backseat too, too much living to do besides sitting at my computer (LOL) but I'm still posting from time to time.

This looks wonderful-you must be so happy. It's like a whole new kitchen with the new paint. I like the update on the island and the new handles on the cupboards. Love those drawer pulls. Those signs are cute- great ideas!
Seems like a bunch of bloggers that I know have taken breaks- sometimes because of health or just need a recharge.

How pretty! I love the white cabinets and how you changed up the area over your range. I know you must love using it now. Looking forward to reading more about what you did.

Sherry it looks beautiful! I'm so happy for you, I know how much a new kitchen revitalizes a home. I can't wait to do ours. How are you? I can totally relate to those blogging lapses. It's called Life. I'm sending you positive thoughts, hoping that everyone in your life is doing well. (love how your Dad helped you)

This is beautiful, Sherry...I think we painted our kitchen cabinets the same color. Love it. That Oyster sign is awesome.

Calypso In The Country said...

Beautiful job! The white really brightens it up and I love the beadboard on the island!

Mary Keels said...

Gorgeous! I especially love your backsplash. I really want to do something to mine. I love what you used on yours!

Lynda Brandly said...

Whoohoo! I know you're thrilled, Sherry! It looks wonderful - fresh and brand new and I know it feels so much better. I love white kitchens and you did a beautiful job! Your 'oyster' sign is cute. Could you put 'smoked' in little tiny letters on the upper left so I know they're not raw?! Ha!
love and blessings~

What a difference! It looks wonderful Sherry.

Debra Oliver said...

this is gorgeous, Sherry, I know you must be loving it! that oven hood is my fave!

Patricia Krank said...

What a wonderful transformation Sherry. You and hubby must be thrilled. I am so jealous of your stove hood. Well, not really because I think you are amazing and you deserve it, but it is something I really want one day in my kitchen, though definitely something that is on a back burner for now though. I'm happy for you.

Eilis said...

Your kitchen turned out great! I have a microwave that is built in too low (under the counter). I like how you built yours in at counter height. I may have to try that.

Shelia said...

Your kitchen looks beautiful, Sherry! I just love white kitchens! Your stove hood is just wonderful and I'll bet you'll have fun poking things up on the little shelf! Enjoy it.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
