Semi finished kitchen

Here are a few pictures of my kitchen so far.  I finally got all of the cabinets refinished and the granite counter tops are installed.  Now all we need to get done is the backsplash.

Here is the before picture when we bought the house.
We put in stainless appliances, added a new light above table, made new cornice boards above windows, added shelves to the island and got a pot rack. I still need to make a tablecloth to match and make a curtain for the window on the back door. 

I tried to get as many shots as possible without getting the living room furniture in the way.
I love my new fridge with the double freezer drawers.
The corner unit had a microwave oven combo and we put in a double oven instead.  I don't use the microwave that much so I bought a small one to sit on the counter top.
I stood on the coffee table in the living room to try and get a better shot of the island to show off the shelves.  Now I have somewhere to put my cookbooks.
I painted the butler pantry the same as the island since it is off of the kitchen.
Here is a closeup of the granite that we choose.  It is called Colonial Gold.
This is the breakfast nook area with the new light that my wonderful husband installed.  Once we get the back splash done I will be posting the final pictures with everything decorated.

Here is a shot of the front of the island.


  1. love your makeover. Good choice on the double door, wish we had gotten the freezer double door instead of the single drawer.

  2. Now it looks like a home...I really like what you've done so far, I'd love to have so many wonderful cabinets to store dishes!

  3. Oh it is looking fabulous. You've done a great job. Thanks for joining Inspire ME. Hugs, Marty
