A Light and Bright Kitchen Redo

Our kitchen was screaming "Bring me into the 21st Century" so we painted our oak cabinets white, replaced our formica countertops with granite, replaced the kitchen sink and faucet, covered up our tile backsplash with beadboard paneling, added corbels and installed butcher block onto the top of our island and added newel posts to the island hangover.
With a punch of color (apple green), our kitchen is now a completely different space. It's cheerful, open, bright and clean. It's a beautiful space to sit and relax with a cup of coffee and the newspaper. Hope you enjoy!
