Kitchen Reveal

REPOST:  This is a repost of my kitchen reveal from nearly a year ago.

It is finally here! The day I have been waiting for all my life. Ok…maybe just 1 year, 3 months, 1 week and 1 day for. My kitchen no longer looks craptastically oak! What an exciting day. So here are the pictures. My photography skills do not do this transformation justice. But they will have to do. However, you are welcome to come see them in person to “ooh and ahh” over them if you wish. I will be doing a tutorial of all I did in the next couple of days.

Here are the upper cabinets. We installed a rope lighting above them. I will tell you more about that soon.

Here’s the island. The picture really makes it look streaky. But it is not. My camera doesn’t pick up the depth of color in it.

I tried turning on the lights so you can see the mood ligthing but you can’t really tell. I need a professional photographer to come over to take pictures. Anyone?
