Our Kitchen, before and after

Here's our kitchen before:

and here's an after!

Another before, looking right:

and after:


I'm so proud of the way it came out! The cabinets look so great in white with my dream-stainless steel knobs and pulls on the drawers. The green is really bright, and, as usual, doesn't really come out in these photographs like it does in person. It's the kind of color that might incline a person to say "This color really POPS!" just like they do on the design shows, even if such a person is not usually inclined to say such things. Like M.. Eventually we hope to get granite countertops and maybe a new range, but for now we're really happy with the way it is.

Coming soon: Our Living Room!

Beautiful!!! Nothing like a bright, springy kitchen to refresh you. I am very fond of green, as you might know. Love those new knobs, too. It's amazing what something as little as knobs can do.

don't I know it; I'm just dying to change the knobs in my bath!!

Love that green--it hints at the POPPING green that are the walls of Lindsay's room. Nice!

The pictures are nice but really do not the room justice. You cannot see the fine workmanship in the painting. Mike was so easy to teach and has a great deal of natural ability in the art of wall painting. I totally approve the knobs, your arrangements on top of cabinets is good, too.

Nice use of color, space, and natural elements... (sorry... too much TLC and television home redos)! It definately wakes you up in the morning! =) - Laura
