Our Kitchen Makeover

I'm so excited to share these pictures!  Our kitchen makeover has been one of the biggest transformations in the house- it's amazing what a little paint (or gallons and gallons!) can do to a room!  After painting the cabinets, trim, and walls, the kitchen felt twice as big as it did before, and it feels so much brighter and happier.  Here are the before and afters!

I'm smitten with this new pendant light I found at the Ballard Outlet for a steal!  I originally bought a pretty vintage bulb for it, but it gave off a very yellow light so I instead used a cool-toned Edison bulb. I'm actually glad I switched because this bulb sprays the light on the ceiling in the prettiest way!

Eventually we will update the dishwasher and oven to stainless steel, but as long as these keep working, we're in no hurry!

I found this solid wood dining set on Craigslist for a great deal and refinished it before we moved in.

My favorite, and most-used, part of the kitchen: the coffee bar.  I can't go a day without my morning coffee! 

Not everything is styled perfectly!  Here's a glimpse of real life:  Pepper's container of syringes for his twice daily insulin shots :)  The cubbies are perfect for sorting mail and receipts, and the counter mainly serves as the fur babies' treat area, while also keeping our magazines and coupons organized.  I found the stool at HomeGoods and recovered the top for a fun pop of color!

The final painting job in the kitchen was this copper strip in the backsplash.  Originally, I had planned to pry it out and replace it with something a little more subtle.  But I decided to try painting it first, since that would be way cheaper and easier!  The perfect color ended up being one I already had from painting our fireplace (pictures and tutorial coming soon!).  This color really brought out the browns in our countertop and tied everything together beautifully.

I wanted to get hidden hinges but unfortunately for our style of cabinet door (3/8" inset partial wrap) they don't currently make any.  Also, it is INSANE how many kinds of doors / hinges there are.  I learned way more than I ever cared to about cabinet doors and hinges!

Another part of our kitchen that I'm grateful for everyday is the hall tree.  It's the perfect spot to keep our jackets, shoes, and my purse organized and looking good.

Kitchen looks great! Can you tell me where you bought or the brand/make of the cool toned light bulb you bought for your pendant? We just bought some regular edison bulbs for a similar fixture and they are SO yellow. Thanks!!!
