The kitchen makeover has been long overdue in my book. When we were in the planning stages of building over 5 years ago, what seemed like a good idea at the time soon seemed quite the opposite. I guess a lot of that can be attributed to my changing taste. Anyway, I've had a new vision in my mind for quite some time and it is finally coming to fruition. There is still some tweaking to do, but I guess that is what future posts are for, right?
I apologize if there are any duplicate pictures. In the middle of my photo taking and editing, we were hit with a surprise tornado warning today here in Middle Tennessee. I shouldn't have been surprised since it was warm and balmy outside. However, my daughter was on her way back to school from the airport, and my son and his girlfriend were out shopping and lunching! Mother mode kicked in and I had to locate everyone and tell them at least 101 times to take cover and stay off the road :)
The big changes here are color, light fixtures and window treatments.
I changed out a more rustic chandelier for one with a little more glam factor.
I also got rid of the ceiling fan/light fixture over the kitchen island. I felt like it was just too much clutter for the ceiling.
I painted the island and the table the same Perfect Greige as the walls.
The island was custom made out of antique doors and flooring.
The bead board back splash was added.
The curtains were swapped for blinds. I was aiming for a more simple but elegant look overall
One of the more significant look changers was the new chairs from Ballard Designs. They replaced the 2 arm chairs, and I added a yard sale bench I already had to replace 2 of the side chairs.
This is an old ceiling tile we used behind the pot filler.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
