Kitchen Remodel

Since so many of you asked (okay, maybe only 2 of you) and my current project is a craftastrophe here are the complete pictures of our kitchen. I'll admit I didn't want to spit shine the kichen at 10:00pm last night, so these pictures are from a few years ago- surprisingly there haven't been many changes. Lots of questions about whether black granite is a pain- no, totally worth it. You do have to keep it wiped down, but I love the look.

This country kitchen sign is no longer hanging above the stove- when I saw this picture I couldn't believe how out of scale it was for that area. One of my favorite features of the new kitchen are my Wolf range and my pot filler. This is a faucet we use to fill our spaghetti pots with water- it was a little bit of a splurge, but completely worth it.

I had dreamed for years about having an apron front sink- and I'm not disappointed. It's big and deep and I love the look.

I had these window shelves made by a great handyman- $50 each- I thought that was a steal. Also, the dishwasher is concealed behind the fake drawer/cupboard panel to the right of the sink.
The beadboard is also a favorite

This is where I put the pottery barn knock off clock- but it didn't last the weekend. I missed my antique window so the clock was moved to the TV room. The Fresh Baked Pies sign is now over the range (I thought it looked funny when I saw this picture)

Here's the overall again. I had the island custom made- I love using the butcher block countertop to make bread. The Roosters on the cupboards were purchased at Michaels for $1 and then I just handpainted them.
Hope you liked the kitchen tour- a special thank you to my friend Jenny, who gave me the idea to post these pics-Have a great weekend. Hope to see you at the Garrett Tanner Charity sale and the Fraser Swap. Love, Kelly
