We spent the weekend on Vancouver Island. Half to visit my Dad for Father's Day! and Half to see my mom's new/old Kitchen!
So Happy Father's Day Dad and Nice job MOM!
Because who doesn't Love a Great Before and After?
Here's the Before:
Here it is now:
I was shocked when I walked in the door and saw that my beige loving mother had painted the bottom of her cabinets . . . . Martha Stewart's "TIDEWATER"!
I LOVE IT!!!
They didn't want to replace the counters, which were in perfect shape, but did put up a back splash and matched the grout to the counter top.
Another thing I LOVE is that Mom took the doors off of the upper cabinets and used it to display her lovely white dishes (she's definitely my Mother and if anyone had their doubts just check out all those white dishes). And how about that bead board wall paper! Mom really wanted to fit bead board into the cabinets, but using a jigsaw to cut large pieces of wood was outside of her skill set. So we found this bead board wallpaper, it was easy to install and looks GREAT!
The paper towel holder is the same one that we have, and the faucet is a close copy of the faucet from our townhouse . . . Just say'in! haha
The view from the door looking at the sink is lovely it looks out over their yard and makes doing dishes less of a chore.
This little blue kitchen has an eat in area, and for everyone who was wondering where the church pew from our old dining room went, you're about to get your answer.
The board and batten wall treatment was done using the same technique as our bedroom wall, but with a different pattern. I love how it comes about 2/3 rds up the wall!
I should also mention the flooring. It's peel and stick vinyl flooring. You cut it with scissors and lay it down. It costs about $1.65 a square foot, and you can lay it right over your old ugly linoleum flooring. It's super durable, and water/scratch resistant! I was amazed how great it looks, you'd never know!
And check out this garbage can, $2.50
So there it is. I think Mom and Dad did a great job on their new/old kitchen! Spending less than $1000!
