It’s time for another kitchen makeover post! This is a project I worked on last October for one of my LONG-time dear friends. Susie and I have known each other since meeting in a bible study in college at the University Of Colorado, and we have walked through a lot of life together over the last 30 years.
Susie and her husband Johnny live in a great neighborhood but wanted their older ranch house kitchen to have an update. The cabinets were original and had been resurfaced at one point along with new granite countertops put in, but overall the fixtures, paint, hood, cabinets and flooring needed a new current look.
Ok here we go. Originally we just discussed painting the cabinets. Susie already had plans for refinishing her wood floor and a new fridge. But as we looked at her kitchen, I suggested we replace the hood over the stove along with considering painting and replacing the lighting–all three ideas would create a big updated impact with only a small increase to their overall budget.
She and her husband decided to add these ideas to the project and we created a plan.
~ New Hood
~ New Paint
~ New Fridge
~ Refinish Flooring
So, Valerie and I went to work!
Here are a couple more before pictures:
Those are the big picture views of Susie’s new kitchen! Here are some close up pictures:
We picked a stone backsplash that was a little more neutral since the counters had a lot of pattern. Then we replaced the flush-mount light over the sink with a hanging glass pendant from Lowes.
We replaced the fan over the kitchen table with a new light, and hung a new canvas to pull through the reds that Susie loves.
Here is a the new hood from Lowes.
We also added bead board to the flat panels that covered the peninsula cabinetry. It is a small investment for a big impact upgrade.
ALSO, we decided to preserve the existing hardware which was brass colored. I spray painted all the hardware with a metallic spray paint:
