Nesting

My boyfriend and I recently rented a house that was a major fixer-upper. We have a few projects to go, but we got a lot done before we moved in. My favorite project was for my favorite room - the kitchen!

Before
These wood cabinets were in serious need of a facelift. The kitchen is the first room you walk in to as well as the main "walkway" of the house. Its a really big space with 2 huge windows so I wanted to keep it bright.


After

Painting cabinets takes a lot of work, but was it worth it? Definitely! I used the same cabinet pulls and hardware - we just cleaned it up so they've got a great distressed copper look. I absolutely love the way the project turned out.


Even though it looks 100% better, the kitchen is not quite finished. The walls need to be repaired ... they're plaster, and then I'll paint. We're also getting new flooring soon and that will hopefully be the finishing touch!

  1. Wouldn’t it be great to have a professional designer remodel your kitchen with high quality, solid wood cabinets without paying tens of thousands of dollars?
