Cottage Fresh Kitchen Remodel

I have a standing philosophy that white is always right. This is especially true when your kitchen is saturated with builder grade orange maple cupboards from the 90's.
My husband and I slowly worked on our kitchen for about a year, as time and money could afford. The slow pace made it feel like we weren't making any progress, but now looking back on the before picture - I can hardly believe what we accomplished!
There are really so many fun details in this space. We tried to combine our love for bright coastal style and French farmhouse style to create this space we adore.
Whenever I mentioned the fact that we were going to rip down good cabinets and put in open shelving, people would cringe. Don't do it, they said.
They just couldn't envision what was in my head. I hated having beautiful dishes stuck inside where no one could see them. Now I get to adore them all day.
I would love to have you swing over to my post and read all the juicy details of how our cottage fresh kitchen came to be. I address our faux concrete countertops, as well as sources and tutorials for this space. Head over now!
