Lee Ann’s Kitchen Reno: Part 5 – The Kitchen begins to take life!!
It’s been a white since I’ve updated you on Lee Ann’s Kitchen reno and lots has been happening!!
If you recall, Lee Ann donated her kitchen to our local chapter of Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore. You can read the post here as a refresher.
Once the kitchen was cleared, my contractor came in and started rebuilding the walls and removing useless bulkheads on the ceiling.
Lee Ann also desperately needed proper lighting in her new kitchen so a new lighting plan was created. We added 10 pot lights to her new kitchen layout.
And a few days later, this naked kitchen slowly started to get clothed with a fabulous new floor!!
The flooring goes out into the hallway all the way to the front door. I’m so happy the way it turned out. But that’s not all…..a few days later my contractor came in and installed all the upper & lower cabinets!! Soooo exciting!! Are you ready!!!!
I love how the uppers go all all the way to the ceiling finished with a lovely crown moulding. Cupboards were painted in Benjamin Moore’s CC-80 Grey Mist.
If you remember from Lee Ann’s old kitchen (click here for a refresher) her stove used to be right by the doorway into the kitchen. Now we have the stove framed by 2 sets of mini pot drawers. What a huge difference!! And so much more functional with lots more storage!!
And I turned Lee Ann’s old eating area into a more functional space by adding in a much needed pantry and a new desk area for Lee Ann to check her email or pay bills. And how apropos is it that her new desk is adjacent to her new wine fridge. See that box on the floor above – inside is the gorgeous new faucet that the folks at Delta generously supplied to Lee Ann!!
