Quick Before and After

 It is not often that I don't see the finished product of a room but with the craziness of last year it happened a few times.  So you can imagine my delight when I opened an e-mail from a client with some before and afters of a kitchen I worked on this past summer.  While the kitchen was cute before at first glance, upon closer look it needed a lot of TLC....



 Here are the afters, I can't wait to see it in person!




Thanks Kate for the pictures!

Marianne, you just gave me the PERFECT example picture to give a fabricator that I've been speaking to about this very very thing. LOVE YOU!

I have a very serious important question...where is the microwave? I can't decide where mine would go because it would be right in the middle of those shelves (over the oven).

That's a great makeover! It doesn't even look like the same space. :)

Now those are some pretty special 'after' photos. I absolutely love it! I really love the look of those steel cabinets and the glossy subway tiles. Would you mind sharing the paint color behind the shelving? I love it!

Wow! Amazing transformation. I'm certain your client probably spends more time in the new kitchen...too fabulous to not cook in and enjoy!

Beyond amazing! Love it!

Wow- what a difference! I love that it still has a rustic vibe happening, but it's much more refined. Love it.

Gorgeous makeover!

Thanks for posting this Marianne! We love how your vision turned out. And to answer a question above - the microwave is tucked in the island. It doesn't take up much needed counter space and stays fairly hidden that way :)

I love your design on this kitchen *and* I am smitten with that apron hanging by the refrigerator. Was that your doing, too?
