"New" Kitchen

During fall 2012 Kari’s big project was the kitchen.
This is what the kitchen looked like the first time we saw it during house hunting.



The details:
-replaced black granite with lighter color and extended overhang for a seating area.
-new refrigerator
-olive green paint on the walls
-new light fixture
-new kitchen faucet and great soap dispenser and disposal features
-glass tile back splash (and a new wet saw to cut tile)
-wall cupboards were stained “Java” with an awesome gel stain
-island painted a soft cream color





We love the new look.  It is much more family friendly.  It wasn’t a hard project but a bit time consuming.  The cabinets took me about two weeks to finish.
Now we have an inviting and comfortable room that we will love for years.

  1. I would really love to know where you got the light fixture you have hanging over your kitchen island and the brand/style name or number. It is exactly what I have been looking for. I have never commented on a perfect stranger's blog, but I saw that light and I HAVE to know how I can get one. 🙂 I actually saw this post b/c I am getting ready to attempt to use the Java Gel stain and am searching for ideas on pinterest. 🙂 Thanks in advanced. my email is andee00@hotmail.com
