Big Reveal

Today is the day I reveal my brand new kitchen. Thanks for being excited about it with me!

You don't know how amazed I was to see the kitchen completed when I walked in the door from my weekend away.

(Although I was instructed to tell you that a certain someone didn't want me to post until he was able to go pick up the new face plates. I was too excited to wait, so he was vetoed)

Sweet Mister, you did an awesome job. I know you worked hard while I was gone (you even cleaned the bathrooms!). I appreciate you, way more than words can say... although you aren't one for too many words anyway. I'll just say thank you...and I love you lots.

The Before:

what I came home to on Sunday night...

Not only did he finish this project, but he went back to Anthropology and bought the decorative pulls I wanted for the faux drawers, and the towel hanger I wanted. Can we spell S-P-O-I-L-E-D?

WOW!!!!! What a difference!! It looks so much bigger and brighter. I'm so excited for you!! This is fantastic. And, yes, I can spell SPOILED -- you already know about the Mothers' Day gift my hubby wants to get me! ;)

Lindsay said...

ooooo sooo nice!! LOVE IT! It looks so good!

JanMary said...

I love it - but maybe that is because your cupboards look very similar to my new cupboards!

Great that it was ready and waiting for you when you got home :)

I almost don't have words. HOW COOL IS THAT???!! It looks fantastic. So fresh and airy and open. I know you're so happy every morning as you stumble in for your coffee.

Can't wait to see it for real!

I speak SPOILED fluently. I love that your manly man went to Anthropologie to get the pulls and towel hanger you wanted. So sweet!

It looks like a completely different space....beautiful! It looks like a great place to hang out and drink coffee.

Kelly said...

So much brighter! It makes your kitchen look bigger too.

Woman Interrupted said...

Gorgeous!!! LOVE your new counters. The mister gets big points for knowing what Anthropologie is in the first place (even if you helped him along.)

Carrie said...

That looks great! I painted our cabinets as well and I am still amazed about how much better our kitchen looks and at a fraction of the price that new cabinets would cost. Great work!

That is an amazing difference. WOW! I love it, Kellie!!!!

How sweet of your husband...and the Anthropologie hardware deserves serious reward. I love that he was all about the little details!

Gretchen said...

It was nice before, but now, it's stellar. The brightness factor is overwhelming. And I mean that in the best possible way. Like, in the way that I'm ready to start sanding and painting because the weather is so dark here that your kitchen would look fantastic in my house.

Big props to the mister. What a totally manly man and loving thing to do.

WOWZERS!! That's just too awesome for words!!

Is his love language Acts of Service??!! ;)

I know you're happy to have it completed and man, it looks fantastic!!

I know he's proud you're beaming!!

lisa@littlesliceoflife said...

Wow, how beautiful!

That man of yours is a real keeper!

Becca said...

That looks amazing! :-) What a great hubby you have!

Michele said...

Kellie, it looks AWESOME. What a transformation a little paint can make, huh? It was so sweet of your hubby to have it all finished when you returned. What a great guy! I hope you enjoy cooking in your new kitchen. . . .and drinking your coffee.

I love it a million much. Feeling more and more inspired to tackle my kitchen with each passing day :)

Jackie @ Our Moments Our Memories said...

Kellie, just look at this! Amazing! Huge props to your man - wonderful job. It looks so clean and modern - love it.

Megan O. said...

Kellie--Your kitchen looks awesome! And it looks like you've got some pretty roomy counters at this house too....you know for laundry!

Shelley @ My Treasure Hunt said...

LOVE your kitchen and the fact that your man was so sweet to finish it off AND buy just what you wanted! So happy for you!

Darcie - Such The Spot said...

I've got to echo the wow-ness. What a difference! It looks awesome. I think that going with white was definitely the right decision.

And bravo to the Mister for all his hard work. Looks great!
