Farmhouse inspired kitchen

We purchased a foreclosure property with the hopes of making it our dream home while saving money on our monthly mortgage. The kitchen was yucky! There was no cleaning this bug infested grease pit. It had to go.
The "before" kitchen
I sketched out a farmhouse style kitchen.
My husband took it from there.
I wanted Butcher block counter tops, but that wasn't in the budget, so we made our own.
We did a dark stain on the counter top to break up all the white. White subway tile for the backsplash.
We planked the ceiling for a rustic feel.
And here is the final result. We still need to add cabinet hardware. I love my new kitchen.
