Hello!  Welcome to another kitchen makeover!

In September I completed a kitchen cabinet painting project for my next door neighbor (who is awesome!).  Brooke is naturally gifted at decorating and pulling ideas together, but she invited me in on her project to paint her cabinets and to be a sounding board for her kitchen vision.  Here are the befores and afters!

BROOKE’S PROJECT LIST:

White Cabinets

New Countertops

New Lighting

Level Island to One Flat Surface

Leveling the island is a great function move.  It allows flow of conversation and                      connection between the family room and kitchen.  Lowering the bar also creates                    more visual space, making the rooms feel bigger and more open.

Didn’t she do a great job?!  As we were discussing the design for these areas, we wanted to bring in wood tones wherever possible to warm up the “cool” grey walls and white cabinets.  Brooke bought this great wood and iron shelving unit (to the left of the fireplace) which she did an amazing job decorating.

The quartzite countertops are beautiful, and the lighting she picked added warmth and a rustic touch.

I painted the cabinets my new favorite cabinet color, Banner White by SW….and, selfishly I got to spend some afternoons getting to know my neighbor better which is always the best part of my job!

Here’s one more before and after:

Have a great day and remember to take a deep breath and rest in the holiness of this season.

XOXO,
