After 6 long tedious months the kitchen face lift is finished. We have taken it from 1990's grandma to funky farmhouse fresh...
Talk about ugly! We had paneling straight out of 1968 and 2 coats of painted over wallpaper.Talk about nightmare!
So I stripped the wallpaper (which took a lot of time and elbow grease). I skimcoated and sanded all the walls. And then my hottie hubby primed everything really well with an oil based primer...
Then the magic began:
We added a funky beadboard wainscot on the walls. I really love the way it turned out.
We painted all the cabinets a beautiful creamy white. It took 4 coats on each side to get the flawless finish we were looking for.
Then new countertops that hottie hubby installed them for me. (He really come in handy when I am in DIY mode)
I painted all the trim and the walls. And then we installed this new laminate floor. I must say the floor lookes amazing! It totally changed the whole look of the space.
I then hemmed and hawed about a backsplash. Subway tile or mosaic?? I finally decided to go the route of classic subway tile. And let me tell you..it was absolutly the right choice. I feel that it completly ties together the whole look that I was going for...
The finished kitchen:
Amazing! It makes me smile everytime I walk into the room!
