I know I'm posting this prematurely and Sheila, the tidy and talented homeowner will probably kill me for this, but it's worth the risk, because I just had to show you what a few gallons of paint, a incredible amount of carpentry talent, and a small (?) budget for countertops (plus some persuasive discussions with the hubby) will get you.....
Same flooring, same appliances, same backsplash tile, same layout, island, and lighting....New counters, creamy white paint, hardware, undermount sink, and beadboard wrapped around the existing island....
I think I posted this area before...the original oak cabinetry as it was above the washer and dryer in laundry:
Here it is again with a bulk head built to bring the cabinetry up to the ceiling! Isn't it beautiful? I love when the homeowners are talented enough to do the homework themselves! Hubby is amazing with trim work and wife is incredible with a paint brush and roller!!
You can still see the oak door....that's already been repainted...as will all the main floor trim work. I can't wait to show you the whole thing.
(Side note to Sheila...now I really owe you big time. First I show up at your house two days early for our consult and now I posted these pics before the project is complete.
So sorry. That's just how proud I am of you guys and your transformation! Hope you can forgive me! :)
Stay tuned for more oak to amazing transformations! See you back here soon!
