Can we talk about Florida weather and hair? Yeah....I am not sure I could live here on a daily basis. Good hair days would be rare.
Because of my Dad....we all have curly frizzy hair. It sucks. I can't even put it in a ponytail because of all the short hairs around my hairline that I have now...... since I got old.
Yep....just more good news for you young people who think "what is so bad about getting old".
I was so happy this kitchen makeover inspired you guys with dark cherry cabinets! If you missed Tuesdays post go here
Years ago when Mande painted the island [Farrow and Ball/Mouses Back] it was always a goal to eventually get to the rest of the cabinets.
But....a move to Portland for a year, a baby and life got in the way.
Fast forward to this summer and one weekend they said "let's do this!".
Here is the inspiration picture that I sent her at least 3-4 years ago....
I thought it would be a perfect look in this area.
Let's look at the progress pictures...
Here is the story about the fridge. A new Sub Zero is a bucket full of money....so she found one on ebay........
It was half the price of a new one.
Here are the lights from Cedar Moss
Such a great price at 159.00!
A picture of the cabinets ordered from Barker Cabinets. They come ready to assemble.
There is a video online to help put them together....she said it was easy......
The countertop came from Floor and Decor
These knobs are from Myknobs.com
The paint color is Benjamin Moore-Dragons Breath
So before we get to the reveal.....this was a total DIY. The only time they had help was to get that Sub Zero up to the second floor from the garage.
Her husband Joe did it all....what a prince! She did have a little help...:-)
The "little prince"....lol.
Now you can see where the wine fridge and the microwave are.
That fridge is a beauty huh! 5 years old and in perfect shape.
I took a few other pictures while I was there...
A few more sources:
The kitchen pulls are from here
The rug is Mande's and she bought it in Greece.
The paint colors are:
Lower cabinets: F&B Mouses Back
Walls: F&B Light Gray
Buffett: BM Dragons Breath
Upper Cabinets: We just matched the trim. Not sure what the color is but it is NOT white.... more of an eggshell color.
Whew.....that's it! What a great transformation huh?
Y'all have a great weekend!
