Kitchen Reveal: Before and After

We bought this home because we knew we could make it what we wanted. We took out a wall, painted cabinets and laid down hardwood floors. There is still plenty we'd love to do but we are loving the look of our new and updated space.
After the remodel
We are in love with the change in our kitchen. We painted the cabinets and laid hardwood floors ourselves. The appliances still could use replacing but that will have to wait.
To create an open concept we took out the wall in between the kitchen and living room.
We were worried about how the countertops would look with the cabinets but they actually match for now until we can add granite.
Here is a shot before. The kitchen lacked brightness and was not at all updated.
My favorite part of the kitchen is this window at the sink that overlooks the back deck.

    I also just painted my ugly oak cabinets a creamy white. It's the most time-consuming project I have ever done, but so worth it. Now I am trying to decide what color to paint the kitchen walls that will blend with the soft yellow walls in the great room.
