Chalk House Updates: Kitchen Remodel

We did it! As I write those three words, I am able to take a {really big} deep breath because WE DID IT and we did it in 8 days. I can honestly say that when we first started this project and we were only hours into it, I started to ask myself "why did we start this right now?!" It made me tired just thinking about everything we wanted to do to create a kitchen that was refreshing, bright, and chic yet classic.

Our Remodel List:
- Empty and Clean Cabinets
- Prime and Paint Cabinets
- Add New Hardware to Cabinets
- Paint Walls
- Remove Laminate Countertops and Backsplash
- Remove Stainless Steel Sink
- Install Marble Countertops
- Install Cast Iron Sink
- Install Subway Tile Backsplash  
- Remove Black Appliances
- Install White Appliances
To see the pictures that we used for inspiration {read more here} come to life in our home has been really exciting for us. Now that we are finished, I am ready to celebrate and pop a bottle of bubbly!  Who wants to join me!?
Saying Goodbye to the Brown...
The before {top} and progress {bottom} pictures make me realize that my handyman husband is a rockstar! Without him, I would still be covered in paint and sawdust while trying to watch YouTube videos on kitchen renovations in hopes that the step-by-step tutorials would magically create a dream-worthy space.

I hope this remodel will provide you with inspiration for whatever project has been on your mind for the past few weeks {or months}. I promise you that every second of the construction zone and chaos will be worth it!

  11. That looks really great. My wife and I are thinking about doing something similar but we are debating what our primary color should be. Love the stainless steel sink. That is something that I would like to look into this weekend. A new kitchen always makes me feel like it is an entirely different house. But really way to go!

    1. Once you are able to confirm your primary color and then the type of accent pieces or colors, you will be all set! I agree, our updated kitchen makes us feel like we are living in a completely different house! Happy remodeling! Xo, Stephanie

  13. Your new kitchen looks great, and I really like the countertop and backsplash. It flows well with the cabinets and the rug in front of your sink. The before and after pictures of your kitchen are amazing. It looks like two different kitchens altogether. I may have my kitchen remodeled soon, and I am ready for the reward at the end of the chaos.

  14. Thank you. I have a kitchen remodel that I have been putting of for quite some time, thinking that it is going to be too time consuming and stressful. But after reading this I believe it is time to get to work so my kitchen can also be fresh and beautiful. You are an inspiration to this do it yourselfer.
