The great kitchen reveal: Final Product...almost

Well, we are so close to done I can't even stand it! All that is left is installing crown molding all the way around the top of the room, staining/installing the floor transitions and doing some touch-up painting. We don't own a nailer, so the crown is going to have to wait until we can afford to buy one or find a friendly neighbor to lend us one.

I really love the way everything turned out and I hope you've enjoyed the little recap!










So what do you think?

I'm in love with this kitchen, and want to copy you with the shelves under the cabinets!!! Great idea for that usually wasted space!!!!

Nice work! I like the rug :)

Kari said...

It is perfect.
Love the rug. Love the little shelves below the cupboards. Really really like the flooring. We want to knock out a wall between the living room and kitchen and something like this would be perfect for the two rooms. What did you end up using?

Oh my gosh, I'm so freakin' jealous! I've been doing a little dreaming about someday re-doing our kitchen and this just lit a fire under me. Unfortunately it's a fire I can't afford yet. But someday! Seriously though, it looks absolutely fantastic!

You guys are amazing. I hope we can someday have a kitchen as beautiful as yours.

Super cute! I love the spice rack under the cupboards... it makes me want to clear my kitchen out of all the gadgets I don't use... and install a backsplash. We have a nailer, but I don't think we can transport our compressor without a truck, (do you have your own compressor?)... I can ask though. We're not that far away.

It's SO pretty! I'm SO envious!

You don't need a nailer to install crown molding. Predrill nail holes in the molding, use adhesive to hold in place and nail to cabinet fronts.

The project turned out beautiful and it was a lot of fun for all of us.

I need to come and use my Christmas present soon.

I do like the little shelves below the cupboards. Never saw that before... your own inspiration?

And the rug. Whoo hoo.
