Starting a Kitchen Makeover

Sharing is caring!

Where to start?  How much to spend?  What are the priorities?  What color?  These are just a few questions to ask before beginning.

Our kitchen really hadn’t been touched in about 10 years except just some new accessories and trying to change out the table and chairs.

  • A new floor was a must
  • Get rid of popcorn ceiling
  • New light fixtures
  • Paint walls
  • Paint cabinets ??? Not now
  • New blinds
  • New hardware for cabinets
  • Counter tops – something had to be done
  • Appliances – still in the thinking stage, except a new hood
  • New sink and faucet was the first priority
  • Glass tile back splash

Thanks to Moen for my new sink and faucet.  After some painting and working on the counter tops, these will finally get installed.sink collageHow I would love new granite counter tops, it just wasn’t in the budget.  I was introduced to a new product at Haven from Kitchen’s Redefined this year.  Painted Paper Countertops.  It’s almost like decoupaging your counter tops.  I chose a darker gray, marble look.  More details on this product soon.

I have loved my apple green, using accents of black and red, but ready for a more neutral look.  Keeping the dark oak cabinets and doing white walls.  There’s not really a lot of wall space, but this will be so much wall before

First job complete was scraping the popcorn ceiling off – full post will follow.  Messy job .  This will be covered with Brewster’s Paintable Wallcovering which looks like beadboard.beadboard 1Painting has started.  

Watch for updates soon along with a list of all products and how I used them.
