Kitchen Before and After

Kitchen Makeover

Today I am overwhelmed! 

Everyone that stopped by,


and offered encouragement for sharing my

Kitchen Home Tour

has left me feeling so blessed.

  I appreciate you all from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for your encouragement to keep writing, creating, and being me!

With that said, I wanted to answer your questions regarding my kitchen.

Remember when I said there was a lot of Elbow Grease involved?

Let me show you the kitchen before and after

Kitchen Makeover

Here is where we began 6 years ago…

Kitchen Before Photo

We stripped wallpaper and painted with

Benjamin Moore, White Dove.

I wanted an all white kitchen, with white walls and white cabinets…

and a pop of contrast with dark floors and counter-tops.

We removed a couple of cabinet doors

Because the kitchen is small, I wanted open shelving to give the illusion of more space.

I also like the fact that it is easy to get to all of my daily dishes without opening and closing cabinet doors.

The Builder Grade Cabinets

were sanded, primed, and painted

with Benjamin Moore, White Dove.

The appliances were replaced

with stainless steel.

The oven was a Craigslist purchase.

The dishwasher remained and is black.

(It works great, so until it dies, it will stay).

Next, we added new hardware in an oil rubbed bronze finish,

spray painted the hinges with

an oil rubbed bronze color,

and installed new flooring.

The flooring looks like natural wood,

but is laminate by Quick-Step in Dark Wenge Wide Planks.

The kitchen peninsula was wrapped in thin wood.


and the baseboards were not as wide as I would prefer.


So we added 5 1/4″ baseboards painted in Benjamin Moore, White Dove.


I also wanted a chalkboard, so I thought this was the perfect spot.

Notice how we bumped the baseboard trim out to look like the

cabinet was built into the wall.

Moving back to the Peninsula

I wanted an updated, custom look with the peninsula area.

The thin board seemed cheap to me.

I know I am on a budget,

but hey,

it doesn’t have to look like it, right?

Kitchen After

So we added bead-board and framed it out with wood trim.

Here’s a closer look…

Kitchen After


In my next post I will share with you how I turned my white laminate counter-top

into a dark slate.

I hope you enjoyed the kitchen before and after transformation!

Have a beautiful day!
