Things that were done in my Kitchen

Things that were done in my Kitchen

Here’s a list of what we did.

  1.  Painted cabinets with Chalk Paint, many coats with distressing.
  2. After painting we decided to put up crown.  Should have thought of that first.  Then that had to be painted and distressed.  Did I mention we’ve never done crown before?  Babes did great.
  3. Made legs from curtain rod finials and those were painted to match cabinets.  Never made those before.
  4.  Painted the under cabinets whatchamacallit black so it gives it the dilution of furniture feet.
  5.  Put new hardware pulls and knobs on cabinets.
  6.  Installed granite we had outside for about 7 years. Granite had to be grinded and polished.  Tons of work but loving it.  Did I mention we’ve never installed granite before.  That stuff weighs a ton!
  7. Installed the farm house sink with new faucet.
  8. Painted pantry door with chalk paint.  I love chalk Paint!
  9. Installed the white subway tile backsplash.  Did I mention we’ve never done tile before.
  10. Craftsman style window frame and door frame.  Nope never done door frame before!
  11. Ceiling fan that was in our office that was in our dining room in Florida was relocated to the new kitchen.  It looked perfect in the updated kitchen.
