Kitchen Upgrade

We finally finished our Kitchen!! Lovely Leith helped us pick out all the colors for the counterop, paint, handles/knobs and tile. My sweet Josh did all the hard work. I did help sand the cabinet doors, but he did 90% of the painting because I am pregnant and he didn't want me exposed to the fumes. So after 3 weeks this is what we ended up with:

This is what the kitchen looked like when we first saw the house

This is when Josh removed the countertop

We tore off the Formica backsplash and tiled it.

This is after Josh's hard work!

The color of the paint is called Cookie Crumb. I loved the name :)

You always hear that the easiest upgrade in a kitchen is adding the hardware and that is so TRUE!!

The easiest part of the whole process was removing the countertops and adding the tile backsplash. The countertops took one day. The tiling took 2 days. It took over 2 and half weeks for sanding, painting and drilling the holes for the hardware! Of course it probably would have went faster if I helped Josh more :) He is amazing and so talented!! After knowing Josh for almost 7 years, he never ceases to amaze me. If he doesn't know how to do something he will study the subject and then accomplish the task!
