Kitchen Tour ~ A Before and After

October 21, 2013



White Cottage Kitchen Decor

Although I have featured the different areas of my kitchen, as background for other projects or posts, I have never displayed my kitchen as a whole. I figured after seven months of blogging, perhaps it was time!

Like most families, we spend the bulk of our time in this gorgeous room and I don't mind one bit. Of course, it didn't start out this way, I have written before about the multitude of renovations this house required when we move in a little over a decade ago.

The kitchen was no exception.

We had already started the renovations when I snapped this shot, but basically that was the whole kitchen. It was an 8.5 x 9 foot space, with two doorways and a tiny fridge tucked into a closet on the back wall...no table, no counter or cabinet space and no room.

We added a small addition off the back of the house and it was honestly the best investment we've ever made.

Before And After Kitchen Tour

This is the same space now.

We added that pocket door that now leads into our family room.  I dressed the wall with some thrift store finds, my handmade Pottery Barn knock off wooden sign, a curbside table upcycle and my mom's old deacon's bench.

It has storage inside which still holds my kids' old baby toys for when friends or family come by.

On the other side of the space we added a much needed and constantly used desk.
It was one of the best things we ever did.

Initially I wanted a service area, big old display hutch and gorgeous collections dressing up my dream kitchen. I am glad that my husband talked me out of it, as we use the desk every single day.

How To Add Fabric To Glass Doors

The kitchen is basically a budget job ~ well, at least as much of a budget job as any major renovation can be.

I am not into custom, unless we can make it ourselves.

The furniture was either clearance, thrifted or free. The cream colored cabinets are Kraftmaid from Home Depot and almost everything else came from that store, as well.

The floor is a prefinished hardwood, from the clearance aisle, the sink, fixture, lighting and cabinet hardware were all pulled off the shelf.

I deliberately chose the laminate countertops, as I wanted them to just fade away. (Well, I really wanted mahogany, but that is a post for a different day!) I made the same choice with the appliances, wanted them to blend and fade, as I am not a big cook.

I was more interested in creating a beautiful room that I would love to look at, than a chef's paradise.  I am definitely a form over function girl, although I have to say, it all functions beautifully and still looks new after all these years.

The hood is my favorite piece in the room and I absolutely love it.

I saw a kitchen that had a more ornate one, we pared it down to suit our taste. My husband built it himself. I could honestly stare at it all day long.

Most of the year, my red wreath is enough to adorn it, but I do really like to dress it up.

Valentine's Day
I think it provides such a gorgeous focal point for the room and at night, when the under counter and in cabinet lights (all on dimmers) are lit up, it really is a sight.

decorating with red in the kitchen


I do not have a dining room, the house is a tiny beach cottage, so choices had to me made. In order to accommodate big (very big!) family gatherings. So, I have two eating areas, including my farmhouse kitchen island and my round corner table.

Christmas Kitchen Decor

I knew that I wanted a very open feel in the kitchen and so I designed the room to have high ceilings, six foot windows and a Palladian slider that look out at the pool. The Palladian window was a freebie from my sister, discarded from her renovation.

How awesome is that?

The kitchen is predominantly light.

I purposely matched the wall color to the cabinets, which are bisque with a painted, distressed finish.  There's a lot of light color in this room and I like drama, so I punctuated the entire space with red accents and a very, very red wall facing the windows.

I picked up the pine sever at goodwill for $75.

Country Kitchen Style

I'm currently campaigning for a fireplace on this wall...it's not going very well.

That's ok, I'm patient and I am pretty sure that I can whine about things a little longer than my husband can stand to listen to it.

In the meantime, I do love the server and I can dress it up any way that I like and I do.  I change it out often, multiple times every season.

I'm a sucker for a cute accessory or colorful plate.

How to make a wooden sign

I hope that you have enjoyed the tour of my kitchen.

It was done over a decade ago and other than replacing the fabric on the kitchen chairs, swapping out accessories and repositioning the table, it has basically remained the same.

I just adore it and have no desire to change a thing and I'm not sure that I ever will.

I'm not exactly certain what that says about me.

My kids tell me that it means I am old and set in my ways.

I prefer to see it as being confident in my style.

  8. Hi Kim,

    Well, you know that I have a passion (read: obsession!), with red, so, of course, I'm going to love your pretty kitchen for the sole reason that it accents your space so nicely. One example of this, and my favourite area of your kitchen is your dramatic red wall, the backdrop to that warm, deacon bench and side table. So cozy and inviting! Similarly, your server, dressed in all its finery, is pure storybook charm and the fact that you got it for a steal makes it even sweeter! How lovely to be welcomed every day by this most bright, bold and beautiful space! I could sit here for hours, just as your own family gravitates and gathers here, too.

    1. Stacey, I could say the same thing about visiting you and your gorgeous red infused blog! I have to say that I love the design/ DIY process and my husband is ridiculously handy (and we like saving money), so it wasn't really a challenge. Thanks for noticing my curtains, they were the easiest ones I have ever made and I do love that fabric! The chair was an eBay find and I think it warms up the room! Thanks so much for your kind words and for stopping by! I hope you are having a lovely October!

  16. Love it! I'm so impressed at your eye for decorating and how beautiful it all came out...I do love our kitchen too, though I can take none of the credit since it was a fairly new house and the family before us built it/designed it. I would have liked a desk in the kitchen like you have -- a place for paying bills, etc., but other than that, it works for us, or I should say for my husband since he's the cook!

    1. Haha! My husband is the real cook here, too! It's great to move into a place that does not need construction. It is a real pain! If our house had a decent kitchen, I would not have renovated, but I am actually glad it was a necessity, as I am thrilled with the results!

  20. It's beautiful, Kim. I love the subway tile backsplash - we have the same one in a light gray in our kitchen. We did a complete remodel in April, and I am so happy with it. It wasn't budget since my husband and I are diy idiots, but we did stick to a budget - does that count?

    2. Sorry, I came across your blog through Savvy Southern Style. Didn't realize the tutorial was on the sidebar. just wondering how many hydrangea stems you used..it looks so full. Maybe you can start a side business making these wreaths they look so professionally made. Just a thought! Thank you from a new follower.

      Delete
    3. I'm so excited you came by at all!! :) I just counted and I used about 9 flowers. They are pretty big...I would say about the size of my hand. I pushed them up against one another pretty tight in order to make it very full ~ and you're not the first person to suggest a wreath making biz to me! I just figured that most people out there are way craftier than I, they would just make their own...maybe not! Something to think about, I suppose! Good luck, let me know how it goes or if you have any other questions! And, hey, thanks so much for the follow!

  35. I love my kitchen because there is a lot of love in the kitchen, the labor of love. But I really hate my kitchen because I have been wanting to update it for years now and haven't figured out what to do. I am at lost with the layout and contractors are too. boohoo.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Honestly, Amanda, it was actually much easier to remodel our kitchen in an new addition space than if we had to reconfigure an old one. I totally get that challenge. A poor layout is hard to fight and it is not always practical and affordable to alter the bones of a house. I knew what I wanted, but I still went to every big box store and high end cabinet shop in the area for consults and then I incorporated bits and pieces from each one to round out the final product. Perhaps a combination of ideas will spark your inspiration! Good luck!

  56. Your kitchen came out so pretty and so quaint. I love it as I am a big fan of RED! Also love the windows and that whole let the light in. I think your choices are spot on and I so love love your range. Perfection.
    You know, I too, don't have a formal dinning room, sometimes, I am glad I don't as it would become a catch all for my kids, etc. my dinning table is next to my kitchen like yours, and though I have the cheap kind of cabinets, I have been tethering on painting them white as well. I have an island where my sink is and I love it but I don't care for the color of my granite. I love also your backslash and I want to do white also, what kind did you use? Simply just perfection and inspiring, makes it feel like coming over for coffee, it's that inviting. Good job! Fireplace would be heavenly! Keep at it, if I were you. ;-D

    1. Anna, thank you so much for your kind words~ you just made my morning! I agree about the dining room, we debated as to whether or not we should have a family room or keep a dining room. Family room won out and I am glad, as I know it just would've been a place for my sewing machine and this kids' stuff most of the time! My backsplash is a simple subway tile. It is very basic, it is not beveled or wavy. The whole kitchen is actually a bisque color, but they have definitely have the tile in white, as well. Thanks for popping by Anna, I'm glad you found some inspiration!

    1. Oh Cindy, I hear you loud and clear! That's why our kitchen has looked the same for so long ~ I am battle-scarred from the renovation! Of course, it's all worth it in the end! Good luck!
