Today, we are going back in time a bit to revisit my recent kitchen makeover. Due to a recent pin-gone-viral, I've received many emails requesting sources of elements in the new space. Before I share, let's take a look at the project.
Here is what my kitchen looks like now...
Here's is what it looked like originally...
You may remember when I began the makeover. It started with a grand vision of the "perfect kitchen". The "perfect kitchen" design plan quickly exceeded our budget. Once I gave myself a reality check, I focused on making the space "better" instead of "perfect".
In the end, I am happy with the better kitchen. Most of the elements we used were budget friendly finds from everyday retailers. Here is the source list...
"Absolute Black" granite.
Wall Color, "Coir" by Martha Stewart. Coir has since been discontinued. Martha's "Heath" is very similar.

Our cabinets were painted by a local professional cabinet painter and the moldings were added by a local carpenter. The cabinet paint color, "Tailors Chalk" by Martha Stewart.
Three light lantern, The Home Depot.
Wine Storage/Cook book baskets and labels, from Ballard Designs.
A real wine fridge was part of the "perfect kitchen" design plan.
This is the "better kitchen's" version. For the tutorial post on this project, click here.
