Kitchen Remodel is D.O.N.E.

Blue and white kitchen cabinets = Beautiful!

Have you ever been involved in a kitchen remodel? Or any remodel? It’s so exciting to start. It’s so messy in the middle that you wonder why you decided to tackle this project.

Then, after the remodel is done, you hear the choir of angels and think… Oh. Em. Geee. it’s perfect.

Well, that is me right now. I am so happy with the end result. Our kitchen was giving off a major 1978-vibe and was literally falling apart in places.

Now that the remodel is over I can say this was a good choice and so worth the mess and headaches (and CO$T).

I have had this vision for our kitchen in my head since about 2 weeks after we moved in.

The kitchen is small, so some edits were not possible (without MAJOR cost of moving walls) so we ketp the original layout.

It is so fun to cook in there now!

Blue and white kitchen cabinets

This isn’t one of those DIY stories where Chip and Jo conquer on their own with hammers in hand and it’s done in 48 minutes. We had contractors for the labor part. We got our cabinets at Menards here in town (I do love them!). Even though I got funny looks when I told people they were blue on the bottom and white on the top.

Did you see the before shots?

This kitchen screamed the 1970s to me. We often referred to it as a dark, sad kitchen. Here are a few shots but be sure to check out how I designed this new look at this previous blog post. Gotta love all that wood.

What’s my favorite part?

We really do love it all now that’s it done. I would have to say my favorite part besides the blue and white kitchen cabinet combo is the granite we picked.

Check it out….

The gray tones accent the blue and white cabinets amazingly. Love it.

This slab was called ‘Snowflake’. I almost went with something else! So thankful I didn’t. The little bits of shimmer flakes make this countertop beautiful! Thanks Heim Granite!

To backsplash or not to backsplash

I almost didn’t do a fun tile backsplash. Can you imagine?? haha

The kitchen is so small already I didn’t want it to look cluttered. And the local shops all had the same skinny/slats style of tile.

Subway tile is popular now but that didn’t go with the style of our house. So, the plan was to paint it and do 3″ granite for the backsplash.

Then, one afternoon in Lowe’s I came across this beauty. Don’t you just love it?? And the best part? It was $1.90 a sheet! (Yes, you read that right! a sheet, not per tile). Less than $33 for all the tile in the kitchen …. say it with me: SCORE!!!

The decor part is so fun!

Now that the sheetrock dust has settled, the noise is finally done (and my cat can calm down) it’s finally time to decorate my blue and white kitchen cabinets. YAY!!!!

Our kitchen layout doesn’t leave much space for wall decor. We only have this one little wall to add fun things or to make DIYs to hang in there.

Cute shelf from Hobby Lobby!

I think these fake tulips add the perfect pop of color in here to the blue and white cabinets, don’t you think?

We all love a good farmhouse looking candle stick these days. These basic wood ones were from Big Lots and so reasonably priced! I do believe no kitchen is complete these days out with some fake lemons somewhere too. Right???

What’s next for this creative girl?

Now that this is done, I want to fix our master bathroom next…. we’ll see. For now it’s just SVG designing and helping our creative ladies learn to sell their handmade items.

We Can Make That!

  5. Your new kitchen is lovely, Chelly! I wish I had went with granite when we had our house rebuilt. The laminate counter tops are a pain to clean, lol!
