The Kitchen

This space was my #1 goal the minute we moved in. It is massive. A beautiful picture window facing a mountain and meadow, an oversized sliding door that takes up another entire wall. A 6′ kitchen island! Room for a nice gathering. Cosmetically it just needed updating. Of course I feel like my projects will always be never-ending but here is what we’ve done so far!

Took this pic before we had the keys to the place as I peeked in the window. lol!

This was the day we moved in!

currently…still (and maybe always) in progress!34779972_10155817491938661_7849390897690050560_n

Another current view!

The cabinets I painted with Fusion Mineral Paint and the color is midnight blue. The backspash tiles were painted with the same paint in the color Casement. The tiles were porous already so the paint just soaked right into them and the total process to paint them was about 30 minutes!

I looked EVERYWHERE for copper pulls that 1.) weren’t bright copper but more of an antiqued copper and 2.) were less than $10-20 each! I ended up giving up and buying cheap stainless steel pulls on amazon and using Rustoleum’s Aged Copper and spray painting each one! They turned out exactly the color I was wanting.

The faucet I found on Overstock, rug from Wayfair (should I add another rug? possibly)

Floors are a brand new product from Johnson Hardwood Flooring. Its a luxury vinyl product from the Farmhouse Manor collection and the color is ‘Monticello’.

If I am 100% honest I think the entire look that came together is a bit more ‘modern’ than I was originally planning, but its totally unique and I like that.

Happy to answer any other questions about the process! Like I said it is never-ending, I still have the opposite side of the kitchen, around the dining table, need to finish the new island lights, and etc etc. but we are loving it so far!
