kitchen: before and after

i know i've already shared some before and after shots of the kitchen, but i never could quite capture it as well as the photographer did and as we close the chapter on this house, it's fun to look back and see how far we've come.

rewind 4 1/2 years ago, and this is what the kitchen looked like upon purchase.


i can hardly remember it back then.
but i do remember is how tedious it was to paint those cabinets!


we looked for opportunities to expand kitchen storage ...

before
 
after
 
installed new white subway tile backsplash, butcherblock countertops, replaced the sink, faucet, dishwasher & cooktop, and added recessed lighting too.

and once the floors were refinished, things finally came together. 


you can see our kitchen remodel featured on design sponge here (prior to the floors being refinished).

Finally someone that appreciates the old, but updates seamlessly with some of the conveniences of today. Love the transformation.
