Hueology Kitchens – Before and After

Burkitt kitchen - 4 of 19How about this stunning photo of a kitchen my gals and I completed this past year?!? I’m super behind on posting on the blog all the kitchens I’ve been doing this past year! This by far was on of my favorite makeover….and the scariest ones too!

Why? Because this kitchen was a stunner before we arrived! Yes, it was dark, but still a pretty kitchen.  My client was tired of the dark cabinetry, busy granite and outdated back splash.  Here are a few before pictures.

Burkitt kitchen - 12 of 19This really helped lighten things up! We decided to leave he island and some of the cabinetry dark to give this kitchen a little bit more of a custom look and she had a barn door built for one of the entry ways into the kitchen. The rest we painted with a slightly creamy white (Sherwin Williams Navajo White) and added a gray glaze! Check out the afters!

Kitchen Makeover

IMG_6051My latest kitchen makeover for my most recent clients was SO fun!  Pictured above is the kitchen of the sweetest couple ever, on the day I arrived to finish up their makeover!

JustinCheriInsidestoreshot-1024x767Ok, can you stand how cute they are??? Justin and Cheri  own a uber fabulous store called Accent Prone in Kernersville, NC, and Cheri also blogs about her home and fashion on her blog, My Accent Prone Life.

They recently purchased their first home and had a great vision for what they wanted their kitchen to look like! .  Here is a before photo….

IMG_6095IMG_6096The upper cabinets to the right of the sink and over the cook top were removed.  At this point they decided that they would lose the curved profile on the upper cabinets…yes…that curve is so outdated…and have new upper cabinets made to made the squared profile of the lower cabinets.  They also planned a new back splash (new granite had been installed prior to their purchase of the home) and to install open shelving and enclose the space between the ceiling and the top of the cabinets.

IMG_6051I’m glad that they ended up having all new door and drawer fronts made in the classic shaker style!  And the extra icing on the cake….I got to paint brand new wood! Whoot Whoot!

I am so thrilled how it all turned out!  The classic white subway tile in a herringbone pattern, paired with the clean lines of the painted shaker style doors, the new stainless steel appliances and the open shelving, perfectly accessorized from items in their store Accent Prone!  A winning combination!

IMG_6080IMG_6084IMG_6079IMG_6082And because I know many of you will ask…the cabinet color we went with is Sherwin Williams Dover White!

The couple also had fabulous new black bar hardware to install as well as soon as the paint was cured enough to install!

Hueology Kitchens…Before and After

cottkitchencollageHere is a look at our latest kitchen makeover!

Our client had previously had her builder grade oak cabinets painted and glazed very dark quite a few years ago.  The island was also painted black.

Before:

cottkitchenbefore2cottkitchenbefore1cottkitchenbefore3We used Old White Chalk Paint® on the perimeter cabinets and added some dark brown glaze.  The island was done with Chateau Grey Chalk Paint® with Old White highlights and dark brown glaze.  The silver brush nickel knobs were replaced with oil rubbed bronze handles and pulls! It is amazing how lighter and brighter the kitchen became!
