The first thing we did was add 2 chandeliers. They were both brass and I spray painted them silver. We had to add ceiling medallions because there were a lot of holes from the long florescent light fixtures. So the medallions covered the holes.
We changed out the handles to chrome handles and knobs. Changed the faucet to chrome.
Then we added trim around the door ways and the windows. And of course painted it a celebration blue from valspar.
We built shelves.
Then crown molding. This is the before crown.
Then after crown.
We replaced pantry door because the other one had a hole in it.
Picked white plates as our kitchen theme.
This is the kitchen before we got new counter tops and tile back splash. We also built the island you see in this picture.
Then we got our tile and counter tops. And a new one bowl sink. Now I can wash my large pans.
My inspiration was from the blog http://alittlelovelyblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/kitchen-window-update.html
From white counter tops to black. This counter tops were $11 for 4ft. We got 7 4ft sections to do the kitchen.
So the before!
The now!We still have to get a new stove because the one we have is white and we need a black one.
