First things first, the kitchen floor plan was terribly closed off and tiny. We took out one entire wall and enlarged the floor plan by at least 4 feet.
1970's Kitchen Gets a Modern Farmhouse Makeover!
Our 1978 kitchen needed a complete overhaul so we did just that! Check out how we transformed dark and dated to bright and modern!
Next up, we finished tearing out the rest of the cabinets and soffit, and then installed 5" wide Pine Plank hardwood floors.
The stain color is Early American by MinWax. After flooring was finished, we installed new cabinets that we bought from Ikea.
Once all of the cabinets were installed, we topped them with Carrara Marble. I absolutely love the look and feel of marble!
Shiplap adorning the walls finished out the look of our modern farmhouse and here's the after.
The open shelving allows me to utilize practical storage as well as tons of styling opportunities.
Thanks for looking at our kitchen makeover! If you've liked what you've seen here, I hope you'll check out my blog where I have many more before and after photos of my projects along with source lists and paint colors!! Click the link added:) Have a great day!
