post 100: the kitchen reveal

before:



after:


we are loving the new kitchen. it's been a work in progress pretty much over the past year.  we upgraded the appliances last summer and then upgraded to this fabulous new granite (thanks, Trey Sandifer!) this spring. 

painting those cabinets was something else, let me tell you! my chiropractor has benefitted greatly from this re-do!  i'll do another post on the repainting process in the next few days. it certainly was a lot more budget friendly than buying all new ones, that's for sure. 

and i just had to include a pic of my hydrangeas.  we've lived here almost 7 years now and i don't think they've ever been prettier.

Your kitchen looks amazing! I can't wait to hear how you did your cabinets. I painted the ones at our first townhouse, and I did an okay job, but not great. I really want to paint the cabinets in our new house, but Tim would rather a pro do it. I just love the way white cabinets look.

Love, Love, Love it! I was just telling someone the other day that in my next house I want white cabinets with black counter tops. I'll be waiting on that next house for a while though. It looks wonderful!

Your kitchen looks GREAT! Nice job!

I love white cabinets and blck counter tops. I painted my kitchen, but I didn't use SW paint. I'm going to try it again and use these tips!

Glad to have found you:-)
