Kitchen Makeover - Part 4 Final

Sorry, it has been awhile since my last installment of my kitchen makeover. I want to share the completed kitchen and how much it cost. 

The kitchen is finally done, almost. A couple of things still need to be done, but for now that's OK. For some reason, hubby is OK with almost done. "I will get to it", is his statement. Oh me!

Kitchen Makeover - Part 3

This is the third part of my kitchen remodel. This week the granite counter tops are installed. I was so excited for this part. I have wanted to have white cabinets and black counter tops for some time and it is finally coming to fruition. In Kitchen Makeover Part 1 we painted the cabinets and installed new flooring. In Kitchen Makeover Part 2 we installed new appliances and some other details.

It is amazing how fast the guys were able to take out the old counter tops and start to put the new ones in. 
Everything was going well until it was time to put in the granite with the sink. They didn't measure it correctly so one place was off a little. What else can go wrong in this remodel? 

Calls to the main office and moving and adjusting and more adjusting but still a small gap. Will the back splash cover it? Can we make it work? 

My husband seems to think so, in goes the granite.  I love the look. (there is that one spot) We are probably the only ones that would let something like this go. Would you have had it redone? Part of me wishes yes!

I granite cost us $2500 which included installation, 60/40 sink and Delta faucet with shield spray techcnology. We had 45 square feet of  granite installed and for this area that is really good.

Now that the granite is in, we only have to install the back splash and fix a few places that got damaged from the counter tops.

They had this desk in the kitchen and I so wanted to take it out, but couldn't decided what to put in its place so it stayed. When we purchased the house there was a cabinet above the desk closing in the kitchen. That cabinet was the first thing to come out.

I have two large pantry cupboards on either side and wanted them so I left it all.

It is getting close to being done and I am so glad.

Kitchen Makeover Part 2

We are remodeling our kitchen and in the first part, I painted the cabinets, we laid down new flooring and hubby redid the cabinet above the stove that would house the new microwave. If you missed it you can read about all of that here at Kitchen Makeover Part 1. 

Now it was time for the appliances to arrive. I was so excited since I was getting a gas stove to replace the electric one I currently had. Of course all of the other appliances were exciting too.

Kitchen Makeover Part 1

It all started with a broken dishwasher at the other house. We had decided to wait until January to replace it. The question was, what were we going to do with that room? 

We had updated the rest of the house and was saving the kitchen for last. If you have remodeled your kitchen, you know why - time, cost, mess, not to mention inconvenience.

Although it is our second home, my daughter lives there for now and we didn't want her to be without a kitchen for a long period of time. Here was the kitchen as we prepared to remodel it. Some work had already begun.

Excuse the mess , we were moving stuff to get ready to update. I should have taken a better picture. As you can see it is not a big kitchen - about 10 by 12.
It had these beige cabinets and brown counter tops.
