Kitchen is "Finished"!!!

11.21.2014
Soooo you guys! My kitchen is officially "finished"!!! (I put that in quotes because it's really not finished but it's finished enough for now). After seriously neglecting this space in order to paint cabinets, liquid nail up some wood planks to my wall, install a farmhouse sink that my good friend Jess Craig picked up for me in good ol' Arizona, throw on some butcher block counters a la IKEA, and add a fabulous new faucet from National Builder Supply, I am DONE. It was totally worth it - I love cooking in this room now (and yes, I even enjoy washing dishes, friends.) You can check out the full post (with more photos and babble about the changes I would make in my dream world) over on Apartment Therapy, and find all of the sources below...

  4. Love it! What did you use for the plank backsplash? Did you buy pre-cut boards or did you do that yourself?

    1. We used thin strips of plywood and yes, we space them slightly so there would be a visible gap. We then caulked the gap, but not so much that it wouldn't be visible, and painted the whole thing. We cut the plywood ourselves. Hope that helps! :)

  8. Lovely kitchen! I never thought to paint the lower cabinets a differenct color other than white. Genius! May I ask where the mountain print (behind the floral recipe box) is from? It's very serene and lovely.

  9. Wow, wow, WOW! I came here from the AT site and I have to say, I could just LIVE in this beautiful and happy kitchen! "Real people" projects on a budget are so inspirational; thank you so much for sharing! And now to order that rug for our daughter's (soon to be daughter and son's) room. I can't wait to check out the rest of your blog! Congratulations on a job beautifully done!!

  15. This is perfection! I really love the color palette and all the small details you've added in to the space. What color of paint did you use on your walls? Also, how did you install the farmhouse sink into your pre-existing cabinets? Was there a farmhouse sink there before or did you cut into the cabinets to create a space for it?

    1. Thanks Marisa! The wall colors are Behr's Ultra Pure White and Silver Drop, and as for the farmhouse sink, my husband and father-in-law cut into our pre-existing cabinet and added some support to it. Hope that helps!

  17. Hi Lauren - I've linked here from Centsationalgirl. This was the first time I've every fallen in love with a faucet. I did not know that was possible. Would you please tell me which Moen faucet in bronze it is? National Builder Supply's website is not cooperating. Thanks! -

    1. Hi Jen! I believe it's the Moen Lancaster faucet in Mediterranean Bronze. Hope that helps! :)

  21. Beautiful kitchen! Thanks for including your source list! I admired that rug weeks ago, and was so excited to see it was at UO!

  22. Soooo perfect!!! Do you remember what color wood you picked for the ikea wood countertops?!

  23. Love your kitchen! And we especially loved the pendant lights and ended up buying them for our kitchen update -- but I'm second guessing the size. Looks great in your pictures, I just wanted to make sure you purchased the 12.75 x 12 size and not the mini size which is 8 x 9. Our kitchen seems to be a similar size based on your pictures. Thanks!

  24. Love this Kitchen! Love all the charm! What is the name of the color you used on the lower cabinets? It's gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  25. The color of the lower cabinets almost looks like a "robin's egg" color. Is it that blue in real life? The swatch looks totally gray online! I love the color in your photos, and would use it if it does have that hint of blue/green. Just wondering if it is just my monitor that makes it look bluish!

  26. It's pretty close to how it looks in real life - definitely has blue/green in it.
