Kitchen Redo

We were going to remove the cabinets but when the rescued dog chewed them up we moved faster!
This is what we started with after the base cabinets and built in china cabinet was removed. I failed to get pictures of the demolition, sorry. Basically we took a hammer and screw gun to remove the old stuff.
We (my husband) then covered the walls with bead board. My job was to caulk and paint. I used a trim paint because I wanted stark white. I love the clean look of it.
The next step was installing corner cabinets. We happened to find these discontinued pair at Lowe's for a great price. I couldn't decide if that was what I wanted but the price swayed me. lol
Still a work in progress. I have a hard time deciding where to put shelves and permanent things. Once its there, its there, so it has to be to my liking, I finally decided on this placement for these shelves. Now where to put the others!
No other shelves yet. :-) But the decorating has begun! For the EAT sign I purchased letters from Wally world, painted them white and glued them on to a board from hardware store that I stained. The window is an old one from my parents house. I used a sharpie to write on the window, bought shelf brackets for looks and started to add pictures. I will post later when I finish that. I have decided to put wide corner shelves under the cabinets and will post those pictures after installation. Ignore the "wine" sign, it will go on the wall after the corner shelves go up.

    I love the beadboard instead of the yellow wallpaper...if that's what I was looking at. Did you get new cabinets? redo the old ones? Or did the dog completely consume them off the walls? would love to know more about what I'm looking at!

    Is this wood beadboard or plastic beadboard? I want to redo our bathroom with plastic beadboard but it is so expensive. What did you use?

      Yes, as long as it is not in direct contact with water it should continue to do well.

    This was just the idea I have been looking for. We are removing a window in my kitchen and needed an idea as to how to incorporate the open space into the existing cabinets. Bead board and open shelving! Perfect.
