Kitchen Makeover

I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of our addition.    In addition to our addition, we did an inexpensive makeover of the kitchen.   Everything (minus the dishwasher) was around $500 and lots of elbow grease.  The dishwasher added more cost, since it had to have plumbing and electrical ran to it, but it was so worth it!   It makes my life so much easier!

Here is a before picture.   I had a lot of trouble finding a before picture ... the kitchen wasn't a place that I took many pictures in, because I disliked it so much!   This picture is verrrry blurry, but you get an idea of what the cupboards looked like, and the lovely pink counter tops.   You can't see the gross disgusting floor in this picture, but, trust me, it's there!


And here's the after:

We painted the cupboards (not a fun job) and walls.   We put new hardware on the cabinets.  We replaced the counter tops, light fixtures and flooring.  It's amazing what a difference those few little things made!





  1. Shannon,

    Your kitchen looks beautiful! You guys did a great job. I can't believe you did all that for under $500.00. Very nice. I can't wait to see more pics of the rest of your addition.


  2. Ohhh Baby what a change! Love the pendant light over the sink!! I agree that the dishwasher is worth every will not regret it!!!

    I am wanting to paint the cabinet at the new bad is it really? I thought about tackling the job this winter in the garage...I also want to a distressed finish, am I crazy?


Let me know what you're thinking!!
