Kitchen Re-do: SUCCESS

Several people have asked me if we have our kitchen finished yet. I LOVE that people care about my kitchen. Thank you so much for asking or wondering! And the answer is... it is 99.9% finished. I need to find a few rugs and a few more accessories, but for the most part, yes it is done. PRAISE THE LORD! This is the second kitchen Matt and I have "re-made" together, and both times it was quite the undertaking... especially re-doing cabinets. SO worth it, but just a chore! But if I loved the cabinets we did in the Siloam house, I am CRAZY IN LOVE with these cabinets. (Thanks again, Kirsten, for all your instructions. You are precious.)

One day, we will change the countertops... maybe. For right now, I am very happy and content with things as they are. I wish I would have been more on the ball and taken better "BEFORE" pictures. I pulled one of Jeb from the archives, and the others are a few I took after Matt started on the backsplash. And let me just say that everything we did was extremely inexpensive. I didn't exactly pick my 'dream' anything. I picked things I liked and that we could afford. I made the curtains and waited until all the accessories I liked were 50% off at Hobby Lobby. So, you don't have to spend a fortune on a room re-do. It can be done on a tight budget! (Oh... but an extremely handy husband IS required.)

Awesome! I feel inspired now! We've been in our house 7 months now and I'm feeling ready for the kitchen re-do myself. We did get all new appliances, but the rest is still undone. I'm mostly worried about the cabinets. I'm just not real crafty or handy! You guys did great!

K, I have to ask...how did you do the cabinets? I'm getting ready to redo the kid's bathroom and will be attempting to change the wonderfully light oak cabinets to dark... possibly black....I'm scared! Tips?
