I can’t believe the day is here! The day when my kitchen isn’t a construction zone! The day when my adorable husband Jim can find the can opener! The day when all my kitchen cabinets have doors again! It seems like it took forever (maybe just because of all that sanding…blech!) but a mere 6 weeks after I started the Kitchen Project, it has come to a dramatic conclusion.
And what is a dramatic conclusion without before and after photos? So without further ado…
Here is what the kitchen looked like on January 1st, 2012:
And here it is today:
and…well you get the idea:
I just love how much cleaner, brighter and bigger the kitchen looks now. The before pictures feel quite cave-like by comparison…
The mint green cabinets are a perfect backdrop for all the pops of red throughout the kitchen…
…and this was the worst door! You wouldn’t even believe it was all chipped and yucky before!
Hey Leo, can you believe the Kitchen Project is done?
Way to be a party pooper Leo!
But he is right. Well, sort of. I didn’t forget to grout the backsplash, I had to wait 24 hours after I installed the tile until I could grout. By the time the grouting was done, I would have lost my good morning light. So, I took pictures of everything in the morning and these last few when the grout was done…
I really like how the coppery glass tiles turned out with the white grout!
Oh Leo, you are always demanding something, aren’t you…
So there you have it guys! The Kitchen Project is complete! I have to say I am thrilled with how it turned out…and also thrilled that I don’t have to sand, prime or paint anything for a while…can you blame me?
Thanks for cheering me on until the very end! And now, if you’ll excuse me, I am going to take a well-deserved rest.
