One Room Challenge Final Reveal

Paint brush down folks. 
Whew!! That was fast and furious and I am sooooo glad I attempted this space. 

Let's take a quick look at our before.

And you can check out the previous 5 weeks work:
week 1, week 2, week 3, week 4, week 5


Sorry it's grainy! 

And the after!


There was so much painting to be done. Soooooo much!!! 





So glad it's behind us!!!! 





 
What is still left to do:

get oushak for the area to the left of the cooktop
build small prep table for the cooktop/prep area (stone is in another city and wont be delivered until next weekend)
pick out countertops (a project hopefully for this spring)
pick out smooth cooktop.
(i spend an extensive amount of time on consumer reports selecting things, like too long!)
paint the one lone drawer I forgot and the cabinet door that broke. Yes. seriously
finish the cushions for the bar area (just simply ran out of time)
rework the electrical over the bar area (electrician was super backed up so we are attempting this on sunday, check back!)

We would have never made it this far without the challenge so thank you again Linda for hosting!! Can't wait until next time!!

Wow~ An absolutely stunning space! I love the tile and bar stools. As a fellow 6 week participant the six weeks was indeed a challenge and you rose up. Well done!

So much accomplished in a such a small time! Speaking from experience, painting kitchen cabs is officially for suckers. I loved my results but next time I will hire that job out! What a transformation in your kitchen - painting totally worth the pain in the patoots! Congrats.

What a transformation! Cheers my ORC friend on this fab new kitchen! I absolutely love the white subway tile! I couldn't image taking on a kitchen in ORC so kudos to you for doing it and finishing it! I love the new lighting, the bar stools, and the dinning room table!

Simply LKJ said...

You go girl! Amazing. Love the subway tile with the darker grout.

Erin said...

This looks like a completely different room! Love it! Congrats on a job well done and completing the challenge :)

Jenny said...

Wow! No small feat in accomplishing all that you've done here! I have painted my cabinets (and have started taking jobs to paint them for others), and that job, in and of itself is a big one! You've done a fantastic job with all of the other elements - love the subway tile too,

Carrie Corson said...

It looks so great! Kudos to you for tackling such a difficult space in just 6 weeks! Love the white!

Angela, blue i style said...

I can't even imagine doing an entire kitchen for the ORC. Way to step up to the challenge! Great work and amazing transformation!

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

You did it!! I know it isn't 100% done, but I was so worried about you. You painted your heart out, and this looks stunning. Great job.

Jan said...

Wow, what a transformation. I love the new kitchen look and I don't think you need new countertops, I like the contrast! Congratulations, it looks fabulous and you've made my fingers itch to try my hand and doing some sprucing up in my own kitchen/dinette space. I hope you'll be able to now take a 6 weeks vacation, you deserve it!

Tiffany said...

It looks soooo good! I've painted kitchen cabinets before so I feel your pain. Love the tile/grout combo.

First, sorry I’m just now getting over here! I hit publish on my room and ran out the door on vacation. Secondly…this kitchen is amazing! I cannot get over the transformation!!! I love everything but especially the back-splash and the eating area...and of course the painted cabinets! Well done!!!
