This kitchen is actually an add on to the house. The previous homeowners added it on about 2 years ago. When we first went through this house I fell in love with the kitchen. I loved the farm house sink, the large bar, the pine plank flooring, and the light cabinets.
My next task was the backsplash. I have always really wanted a glass backsplash. Being that we have SO much area to tile complete glass was out of the budget. I was determined to have at least a little glass, this is what we came up with and I love how it turned out. The glass tiles bring in the color but doesn't overwhelm the space.
My husband and I put up the backsplash. Yes, this was our first time. I thought we would just start it one night and be done. Boy was I wrong, we got a row and a half done in one night. I believe it took a week to get it all done!
I never realized there was so much to tiling. Make sure it is spaced right, don't put too much mastic on, don't put too little mastic on.....etc etc etc. I have a new found respect for people who tile for a living! It was worth it I loved how it turned out!
We also put knobs on the cabinets. I looked high and low for square knobs and ended up finding them on Overstock. I am so pleased how they look on the cabinets.
I also repainted, I wanted to make sure my paint was lighter, as I didn't want your eye to go straight to the paint I wanted the cabinets to stand out.
I love this light, the previous homeowner put it in. I love that it hangs over the sink, at night when I am doing the dishes I turn off all the lights except this one and I love the mood it creates. It KIND OF, notice the kind of, makes doing dishes fun!
We really wanted a new hood for the stove, but we ran out of money as they can be quite pricey, so I invested in a can of spray paint and sprayed it oil rubbed bronze!
I love how my kitchen turned out. My daughter and I have made sure it is broken in. We have spent many hours in there making treats. We do share, what we don't eat first!
