My Kitchen Remodel - Before & After Photos


Kitchen Remodel on a Budget

The kitchen turned out just how I envisioned. I really love  how the backsplash turned out the best, it reminds me of the ocean. It sparkles and shines, also picking up other beautiful colors like abalone.

You know how they say kitchens sell houses?  Well the kitchen that was here when I first walked in sure didn't sell the house to me. It was my least favorite room and I knew I was going to rip into it first thing if I bought the house.  The rest of the house was so bright and calming, but the kitchen sort of had a dark grungy sad look, not a kitchen I felt like cooking in.



This is what I saw of the kitchen the very first time I ever walked into this house.

Amazing what painting everything white can do!
It brightened the room up so much.
I changed out the appliances (the old ones were broke),
the counter tops and backsplash.

Here is a list of where I purchased some things, please email me if you have more questions.



My next door neighbor is the one who put in the counters and backsplash for me and also installed the new cabinets and opened up the wall.  A huge thank you to him!

My Kitchen Mood Board



Here's a little mood board I put together to show what all I'm doing with the kitchen.
I'm hoping to get pictures up of it completely finished within the next week or two.
I'm having a lot of fun with this, not being too serious, I just wanted my home to be a little more playful and casual this time around.
Gotta love that Wahoo fish!
