Kitchen Reveal

Captain and I are finally done with our kitchen, well for the most part. There are a few things that missed the final inspection, but it is close enough to show you the pics. Please note that some of these pics are really 2 photos shoved together, so some of the edges may be ... odd.


Installed pegboard backslash & in nook, painted it lightest blue.
New oven
Installed trim & Added curtains


After (different angle)
Painted trim & doors white
Painted walls 2 shades lighter than hallway. It is... taupe?


Painted Fridge & dishwasher with chalkboard paint, & let the kiddos go to town on it.
Raised cabinets as high as we could, we do plan on adding oak molding around the top to the ceiling.


Replaced ALL outlets & covers. I finally don't shock myself when turning the garbage disposal on.


Designed & built kitchen Island.
Plans & Instructions to come in the next post.

I like it! Particularly the island. I love the chalkboard paint on the fridge. What kind of prep did that require? Was the surface smooth or textured? Nicely done :).

This is a fantastic island! I love that color blue in your kitchen -- it absolutely pops! You have done SO much work -- and it has totally paid off -- looks great! :)

Also! Your chalkboard fridge looks great, Leslie. Don't you just LOVE being able to write on it? I don't know what I will ever do if I can't just jot notes and grocery lists right on my fridge. :)

Maybe you'll want to add a twitter icon to your site. I just bookmarked this blog, although I must complete it by hand. Simply my 2 cents.
