It warms my heart when I receive an e-mail from one of you, my dear readers, telling me you just finished a project that was inspired by some of my work.
Yes, that makes me very HAPPY!
That's perhaps, the first goal I set long ago, when I started this blog: To share my projects with you, and to try to give you a detailed description of what was done, so you too, can accomplish that same project on you own.
Closing the empty space above the cabinets made a huge difference in my kitchen, and is one of the projects that has inspired
many of my readers to go and give their kitchens a new look.
Well, around six months ago, Bobbi wrote me a note telling me she was about to start her kitchen redo by closing the space above the kitchen cabinets.
Her husband wasn't big help. I don't know if that's good or bad. Hmmm, In the end, I think it's good because she did all the work herself and I'm pretty sure she gained the confidence to tackle anything around her home from now on. :)
Isn't this a wonderful transformation?!
The only job she hired out was the countertop installation. WOW, look at all of her work! She closed the space above, added moldings, painted the cabinets, installed that gorgeous backsplash, added hardware, etc...
The kitchen was pretty, but now it looks like a high end kitchen with the gorgeous details she gave it.
Thanks so much Bobbi for sharing your beautiful work!
This kitchen, once again, was inspired by the same project. Anna and her husband closed the space above the cabinets, added moldings and gave the whole kitchen a white paint treatment.
You can see their makeover at Crazy Gorgeous right HERE.
Morgane at Bear, Dolly and Moi also transformed her kitchen. A great example of how you can bring beauty to a dated kitchen AND on a budget!
Instead of closing the space, she made it look like open cabinets, inspired by this project HERE:
Let me close this post with the before and after of my kitchen makeover.
As I usually say, it is lots of work, but it's totally worth it! The projects I showcased today are a vivid example of my words.
Remember: You can do it!
