Kitchen Reveal

I'm finally writing this post! I'm so excited to share our kitchen reveal with you! We still have a few things we want to do, but it is a huge difference from where it was! We didn't do anything structural, it was just cosmetic. We lucked out with our kitchen having pretty decent cabinets, just not our color choice, and nice black granite counters. So we got to keep those two things and just paint and change out hardware! 

Ok, here are the before pictures. 

So this was our kitchen before we updated it. The only thing we had changed was the wall color. It was red on the wall by the stove and a beige color on the other wall by the fridge. We painted the whole downstairs the same color, Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams. I love this color.

Here is our kitchen now, after paint and new hardware. 

The cabinet color is Extra White by Sherwin Williams and the hardware was from Amazon. We had such a hard time finding these cabinet handles. I searched everywhere and finally found them on Amazon. The drawer pulls were also from Amazon. 

So with a few coats of paint and a lot of hard work, we transformed our kitchen to a light and bright cooking space. 

There are still a few things we want to do, such as install a backsplash. I want to do a subway tile backsplash with darker grout. We also want to either replace the pantry doors or paint them and we will be adding white trim when we install new floors. Eventually we want to replace the appliances with stainless steel and maybe get a new sink faucet. I would love to get a new ceiling light as well. The one we currently have doesn't give off the best light and it's a bit outdated. 

As you can see, some white paint can go a long way when updating your kitchen. Since we didn't replace the cabinets or counters, this was a reasonably inexpensive project. It was a lot of work, but it was so worth it!
