This week is getting away from me already, and I don’t like it! We had homecoming and my daughter’s 11th birthday over the weekend, and a college visit that consumed my entire day on Monday, so I feel like my week is just starting today. I’ll get it together, bear with me. I have two updated oak kitchens that I’ve finished and thought I’d share, especially since one of them falls outside of the traditional white kitchens that I do, which is always a lot of fun.
First off, here is the one that I wrapped up last week that is extra fun, since they also replaced the floors (and will be adding new granite and a backsplash). Below are some of the before photos – before the new hardwood floors, before painting, before everything. Lots of orangey oak going on in here.
Then the homeowners added new hardwood floors before I started painting:
The floors are gorgeous, but like in this maple kitchen makeover, they really make the cabinets look orangey. But never fear, the power of paint is here!
You can see that they trimmed out the island too, which really gave it a custom look.
And now on to the oak-turned-gray kitchen. I love how this one turned out, and am so happy that I had a hand in it. Here it is before everything got underway.
The homeowners were kind enough to send me photos of the kitchen with all of its pretty updates – new backsplash tile, gorgeous new quartz countertops and new hardware from D. Lawless Hardware. They still have some more work planned, but the changes so far look fantastic!
The color is a match to General Finishes Driftwood.
Here’s a side-by-side comparison so you can really appreciate the full impact of the changes.
