Kitchen Reveal

Good evening friends.  What a cold day it has been here in Georgia.  We even saw a few snowflakes!  Nothing to get too excited about, but at least we saw them this time.  Darbee Rae sure enjoyed seeing them.
The kitchen is done and I LOVE it!  I am so happy with the color I chose for my cabinets and the floor.  I love how it all came together.
Remember, it looked like this the last time we visited.  The cabinets were white and there was a big mess.

The floor looked like this:

When the work started, I was so excited.
The floor was first.
Then came the cabinets.
Many thought I was crazy, but I chose to paint my cabinets black.
I was a little nervous, but I was very excited and really thought they would look great.
Many thought I was crazy.  Maybe I am, but it's just paint right?  Ha!
As soon as the first coat was applied, I knew I was going to love it. is the finished product.
The floor:

Here is the same view above but now finished....

I love it.  I absolutely adore the cabinets.  

The curtains were custom made.  I found them at a yard sale.  They are perfect in there.

The new stove.
I know the stove board is too large, but it will have to do for now.  
Daddy will fix it but he is busy building a playhouse. :)
I tried the stove out today.  I baked chocolate chip cookies that were delicious and cooked fish sticks for Darbee.  It works great!  You have to remember my old one would only cook on 450. There was no changing the temp or it would take hours to cook.  It's amazing now to be able to actually set the temperature!  Ha!

Here's the top of the stoveboard.

I sat my toaster in an old wooden box.  Thanks mama for the idea!
I love my little t.v.  It is perfect for when I am in the kitchen cooking.  I even have cable in there!  :)

I made this little light in an old wooden bowl.  

I found this little shelf at the Salvation Army for less than $5.  I didn't even have to paint it.  

I know it's not time to decorate for the 4th of July, but I ordered this dishwasher magnet and it came the other day and I had to try it out.  I love it!
I love my new drawer handles too.  

A new microwave.
This sits on top of an island beside my refrigerator.  

I love how it all turned out.  It looks so fresh and clean.
What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by to visit!

Until next time...


  1. Your kitchen looks so nice! I love your black cabinets. I painted our bathroom sink/cabinets black last year, and I love it. Have a great weekend :)

  2. It looks great! Have fun making goodies in the new Blessings!~Amy

  3. Holly! It looks awesome! I bet you are happy! LOVE the black. What a great contrast with the red! I like all of your prim/ country touches. Great find with the book rack! It all just looks wonderful, Holly! How does your daughter like it (besides well cooked fished sticks)? I see your Keurig. Shall we have a cup? Mine is warmed up ready to go, although I have a cold, and coffee never tastes right with a cold! I just wanted to stop in and see your kitchen! Yea!!!!!

    Love and hugs! Heather

  4. Holly it looks fantastic! Looks like a perfect place to gather friends and family together!
    Keep warm!
    Be blessed,

  5. Well, your kitchen make over is so nice. I love how you did it all. That floor is perfect(I liked the old one too). Glad you got a new stove, now you don't have to use only crock Have a wonderful week. It flurried here yesterday and today.

  6. Everyday is red, white and blue! Love the kitchen and I wonder though, can you custom build skinny cabinets to go on either side of your stove, instead of cutting down your lovely stove board? If they would block another opening cabinet, you might could put them on rollers? Extra storage and counter space? I love the curtain too!

  7. Oh I LOVE it! It is gorgeous! A girls gotta do what a girls got to do sometimes!

  8. Red and black are definitely making a remarkable statement in your kitchen! It looks more modern and upbeat. I usually see this combination in bedrooms, but it never occurred to me that it can fit well in the kitchen because both colors are dark. Anyway, this is a nice place and I bet you’re inspired to cook delicious meals here every day.
