When we moved into our house we said that we wanted our home to feel like a “warm bungalow” and in our kitchen we wanted a French farmhouse feeling. I’m not sure if we captured it or not, but we really like how it turned out. We enjoyed the process of designing everything according to what we liked best. If you follow us on Instagram I’ve posted some teasers, but today I want to show you what we’ve been working on. In the next week or so I will post the DIY parts of our project.
This is what we started with. Our kitchen really wasn’t bad; a great kitchen, more than we deserve, but it just wasn’t our style. You know what I mean?
I did not include anything extra that we had to purchase to adapt our home to the 21st century as far as plumbing or electrical. More to come on this later in the week.
Paint: $90 (Pure White from Sherwin Williams in Semi-Gloss)
Light above the sink: $70
LED lights for light above the sink (3x): $24
Sanders: borrowed! But we found some decent ones for about $30
Tack cloth: $3
TSP & denatured alcohol: $14
Sponge rollers: $20
Cabinet bumpers (2 packs): $6
Plastic dropclothes (pack of 3): $4
So, what do you think?!
We’re so glad that it’s done and I can’t wait to share with you how we completed each part of this project.
Have an awesome week friends!
