Kitchen before and After

The kitchen is finished (we think). I thought it might be nice to post a few pictures so you can see how nice it turned out.

This was before we moved in .

If you look to the right you can see the room between the kitchen and the mud room. It was called a "mud pantry."  We took out the mud pantry and moved the closet to the right.

There were two small bars, which we took out to make one large bar.
Our beautiful new kitchen has pendant lighting over a large bar shaped like a quarter circle. The cabinets are off white and brown, with the crown molding and under-cabinet molding brown. Both the cabinet colors have a coffee-colored glaze on them.

We re-covered the bar stools and painted the walls gold. (I painted and Ed re-touched my messy places.)

We bought a cute little sideboard for the wall by the staircase. It's a perfect place for the telephone.

The pantry door has cabinet panels, so it's a big surprise to open it and find a nice, large pantry behind the doors.

This composite picture shows the right, middle and left side of the pantry. The shelves on the right are deep enough for appliance storage. There is so much storage space in this kitchen that I actually have completely empty shelves! I love it!


  1. Judy, your kitchen looks fantastic! I'm sorry I take so long to get updated on blogs (and I fail to update my own..). Anyway, back to the kitchen--WOW WOW WOW! I'm in love... Thanks for the awesome pictures!
