Instant Gratification

This is why I love my job so much:  Instant gratification. Well, that's not entirely true for the client, but it is for me. I don't actually have to live through any of the kitchen remodels myself. I just get to snap a "before" pic., offer advice/direction, boss people around, give opinions and then snap the "after" pic when it's all done. It's all just sooo rewarding! 

Here is a kitchen of a home that was built in the 1990's I think...(Bonnie, correct me if I'm wrong).  Bonnie called me in for advice on updating her main kitchen and living areas.  She was a little sick of the traditional styling of her kitchen and felt that the oak had worn out it's welcome. I suggested that she have one of my favorite painters (Dave Williams) paint her cabinetry creamy white (Ivory White #925).
Well, we got on a little roll and out went the backsplash, the countertops, the appliances, sink, faucet, and the purple walls too.
Still traditional in nature, but now with an updated twist. Here's a few more angles:

I don't have any before shots of her living room unfortunately, but we transformed this space as well by updating her lighting, window treatments, wall color, accessories and accent tables. Still looking for a perfect piece of artwork for above her sofa, but we're making due with what she had for now.

One of the other perks of my job is meeting people like Bonnie. Come to think of it, I haven't met a "Changing Room Chump" that I haven't liked. Like I said.....this job is soooo rewarding. Give me a call Bonnie...your formal living room is next.....:)
All you other me too. There's always room for change!
