KITCHEN- Before, In Between, and After

Wow, this whole blogging thing is very time consuming! I've been trying to get this post finished but my life is crazy and never have a second to just sit and relax by the computer! Finally, here is my first post of our newly remodeled kitchen!

This was what our kitchen used to look like. I wish I had a better picture before Brett started going to work! We had ugly upper cabinets on both sides, making it feel very closed off and small. Which it was small!

Aren't these cabinets just so pretty?! LOL The grape stickers really put  the cherry on top!

We took out a wall to extend the kitchen an extra 70 square feet

New plumbing, Dry wall, texture, floor, electrical and lighting.
Pretty much, we started from scratch!

Love the canned lighting we put in.

Found brand new upper cabinets at a warehouse that happened to fit perfectly in our kitchen! We got so lucky!! Only $345  
Brett and his friend built the lower cabinets from scratch.

Cream with a brown glaze

Then he painted the lowers a dark blue

Brick Backsplash

The most time consuming project of all... Concrete Countertops!
They turned out awesome

Lastly, we did stain concrete floor

ALMOST Done!  We still need to finish the drawers and get a pantry door. Little things here and there.. It's a long process for it to be 100% complete, but we are definitely getting there! From where we started to where we are now, is a huge difference and I am so proud!! It's fun getting to design your house exactly the way you want it! I am just lucky to have a wonderful husband who made it happen! He is the hardest worker and I am so grateful! 

I'll do more post of the rest of the house!
