The Kitchen Reveal

 I've been promising a reveal for a while...

The Kitchen isn't completely done, but I just couldn't wait.



 I got the inspiration for my striped wall here, from Three Men and a Lady. Have you seen Michelle's striped entryway? It's AMAZING! Her blog is a "must follow". When I decided to change the color scheme to grays and whites and have a pop of yellow, Three Men and a Lady came to mind. I knew stripes would be awesome.





Here's my bentwood chairs painted and recovered (a future post to explain the details).  Remember what they looked like before?



New granite countertops and subway tile backsplash! This is a dream.  I can't tell you how much I love these new additions in my kitchen.  I don't want to sell my house now.


This bench was a plan from Knock Off Wood. Thanks to the wonderful Ana and all her amazing designs, my nephew and I built and painted this bench in one afternoon.  I decided I needed a bench when one of the chairs I bought was beyond repair and we needed more seating. It's perfect.  A cute cushion for the top is in the works.


I put a cornice box above the sliding glass door to give it a more clean and modern feel. I absolutely love the way it came out. I made one for my bedroom quite some time ago, but this fabric makes this one by far my favorite.  I'm planning on making another one for the other little window above the sink. I found the idea for the cornice box here from Little Green Notebook.

AFTER

There are still some things to do, but you get the idea. It's almost done. Hooray!

I'm so jealous of all of your abilities. You seriously have such a knack for these types of things. I would love to hire you as my personal decorator, shopper, dietician, etc. etc. etc.!!!!

I cannot say how much I loved seeing you at the Mav. Seriously, made my year. Tell a big thank you to G-buddy, who sat in the car for 2 hours while we talked. Love ya!
