I love a good challenge, and this one was a challenge for sure. My client’s kitchen was an entire project unto itself, but the results of the transformation from dark and dreary to a light and bright cottage kitchen area amazing! I hope you’re ready for another photo bomb of before and afters!!!! It’s so gorgeous, I wish this was my house!
There were so many other things to do at the house,and the client’s had a strict budget. So our main focus to save money and was to use the cabinets we already had.
The cabinets were awesomely sturdy, oak cabinets, they really needed a good, old fashioned coat of paint!
And sometime in the 80’s someone was going for more counter space, so they did a weird extension into the other part of the kitchen,but I don’t know if this was the right solution. Did they never hear of a thing called a kitchen island? it actually took up most of the table eat-in area, and it was so super ugly from the front door. So we just removed these cabinets so they had more use of floor space.
When the clients removed the cabinets came out and it immediately opened up 2 feet to the wall. It was so open! When we removed the extra cabinets, there were places on the floor that they just didn’t feel like finishing the floor tile. Again, weird. Before painting, I added trim to the top to dress them up a bit.
We painted them a color called Old Prairie by Ben Moore. I love that color, it’s like the color of steamed, creamy milk. It went well with the Alabaster by Sherwin Williams on the walls.
And the After!!!! Welcome to my client’s Cottage kitchen!
It’s such a nice and bright and lovely space!
I think the configuration is much more user friendly! With a kitchen island there will be plenty of prep space.
I love how bright the open shelving is.
And it feels so bright and spacious.
Here is the eat in area from the other side.
We found an old work bench to use for table until they get a real table.
I love how welcoming and homey feel the house has now.
Can you tell this is my favorite view? I really wish this was my own house!
