My beautiful sister Kim just finished renovating her tired 1990's kitchen, and I have to say that the finished project is simply stunning! But before you go on to see it, I have to tell you how upset I am that I lost the "before" photos I took when our home computer crashed. So let me give you a little idea of what Kim's kitchen looked like prior to the renovation.
Basically the kitchen had all maple cabinets and flooring. There was an "L" configuration to the counter space which separated the cooking area from the kitchen table, dividing the kitchen almost in half. This extended counter and cabinets housed the dishwasher...not very convenient. The cabinet tops did not go to the ceiling, instead they were met by a soffit and had solid fronts. Also the counter top was laminate...funny I don't think I can remember what color it was!
So without further ado, here's my sister's kitchen.
How about those saddle stools...they were my contribution to Kim's new kitchen. I picked them up at a garage sale a couple years ago. They are Pier One stools and typically go for $59 apiece. What did I get them for? Two for $5!!! Aren't they just the perfect fit for her space?
So how about it.? I know she is so very happy with the way it came out...how could she not be? She even had the wood flooring re-stained a dark brown, what a great contrast to the light cabinets don't you think? The new island placed parallel to the sink really opens up the entire space. I also know that down the road Kim plans to put in a tile back splash and our mom is currently making curtains for the window over the sink. But for now Kim is loving life in her beautiful new kitchen!
