Finally, Finally, the kitchen can be shown! When I walked into our home, I fell in love with the butcher block countertops and the white farmhouse sink. Those took my attention away from the lower cabinets and the red-brown tile flooring. I have been up in the air about what to do with the kitchen until we fully replace the cabinets and floors. In the meantime, I chose to paint the bottom cabinets and take down the one side that I was planning on replacing with open shelving.
I chose to use Kilz Chalk Paint in white to paint the lower cabinets and then add the black hardware to a mixture of metal. Eventually, we will replace the cabinets but until then this chalk paint did an amazing job. I did use a sealing wax from Valspar.
Once the shiplap and the shelves were in place and painted, the fun styling began. I wanted to keep the dishes cream and white tones, with different textures. While the main focus was neutral colors, I did want to add in some wood tones to create that cozy feeling. When picking out the light color for the over the sink light, I wanted something that would make a pop. That is when I found this copper cover.
Once I added the layers and the tones were in place; I decided to add in some fresh greenery. The planters that I picked up at Anthropologie and world market are the pot that my house plants are in. I am loving the metal tones mixture. By just removing those upper cabinets; I gained so much more space in the kitchen and I actually want to show to with you. I hope that you are having an amazing week and always, Thank you for stopping by the blog. XOXO
