Joni also featured a reader's renovation here, and this is the kitchen that I absolutely adore. She posts fabulous before and after photos as well as photos from her own kitchen. A couple of my favorite from her reader's kitchen are below
Our own little renovation is finally complete. I really do love it considering we started with just replacing the countertops. This project cost just under $5k, and I think it was money well spent in adding value to our home.
In case you have not seen the other renovation posts, this is our kitchen before...
We had dark brown walls and fluorescent lights both on the ceiling and over the kitchen sink.
Links to the first three blog posts are Part One, Part Two and Part Three.
And now for our big reveal:
Remember that ugly light and those really dark walls...well, no more:
I found these economical pendant lights at Lamps USA.
The paint color that I chose for the kitchen and above the board and batten is Benjamin Moore's Iceberg. This color ties the entry, dining room and kitchen together.
We LOVE our new kitchen. We LOVE that we didn't spend a fortune. We LOVE that our new kitchen is all ours.
