the kitchen. FINALLY.

I know you guys are in terrible suspense over this, so I figured I'd go ahead and post my COMPLETED, albeit messy, kitchen pictures. ya know, so you can finally get some sleep. it's only been about... oh... almost an entire year since I first posted my inspiration post for our kitchen. 

here's a little reminder what our 50's kitchen looked like before:

and (insert big sigh here)... the after:

excuse the mess. I was too excited to NOT take pictures right away. 

I'm so, so, SO happy with the results... of course, I'd eventually love to have a new backsplash and counter top, but that's not in the budget right now. we did have our floors replaced back in April, which you can read about here. we didn't end up doing the work ourselves outside of removing the cabinet doors and sanding the base, but we bought all the materials and just paid for labor. 

if you'd like to get a source list, I posted about our giant trip to Lowe's right here. the kitchen handles came from a website online that I can't remember the name of, but I'm sure I could dig it up if someone really needed to know.

Happy Wednesday, folks!


  1. Looks great! The white really brightens the room up.

  2. Looks fab! I love white kitchens and the paint makes the kitchen look so different!

  3. Your kitchen looks amazing! White cabinets are my favorite! Maybe one day I will have such a pretty kitchen!

  4. Your new kitchen is beautiful! My mom always had a white kitchen and her mom had a white kitchen. There really is something calming about having such a tidy and beautiful space to do all your cooking! Congrats!


I love getting comments from readers, so thank you for being so awesome!
