Kitchen remodel decorated for fall

It is time to show everyone my kitchen remodel. This kitchen began it’s life in 1988. We began the remodel in 2007 It is about 95 % complete….I still need to buy a fridge (black) I know , I know….why can’t Kammy just spray paint the one she has….I would but, it is just not big enough…LOL.  I was all prepared to purchase a new fridge this fall but, had to replace my new dishwasher already….errrrrrr. Yes, I have learned my lesson about warranties (I should always buy them for expensive products) and research –not just the consumer reports. My hubby and I did the complete remodel ourselves except for hanging the cabinets, putting up the backsplash in tile and a friend helped with the taping and mudding of the drywall. Yes , this was a down to the studs complete re-model. We have done all of it on a budget all for about $12,000 and without a 2nd mortgage.

232323232%7Ffp352%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D3234%3B36%3A34%3A64nu0mrj I can’t believe I am posting these UGLY pictures. Now keep in mind we were starting to empty cupboards so everything is a MESS. Everything got demolished. We built archways to define the rooms –notice in this picture the straight entryway. This entryway used to have my washer and dryer – a horrible place. We added on my “studio” (a.k.a. my creative place)and put in a closet for the washer and dryer. 232323232%7Ffp387%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D323576%3A657488nu0mrj 232323232%7Ffp382%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D323576%3A65748%3Bnu0mrj  This is a close up of the cabinets – pretty yucky ,huh ? Fake wood baby..232323232%7Ffp64%3Dot%3E2338%3D368%3D78%3B%3DXROQDF%3E232368%3A526763ot1lsi

232323232%7Ffp38%3B%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A6%3C%3B4nu0mrj New window and sliding door. Appliances and sink moved to better locations. Extra studs in the walls added. Electrical re-wired. Propane stove switched over to electric – propane is super expensive and I wanted the ease of cleaning a flat top stove.232323232%7Ffp396%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A4%3A84nu0mrj

232323232%7Ffp396%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A7375nu0mrj This is the only picture of me , that I took myself. We worked hours upon hours for months. Would I do it again…probably not. Notice things like the lovely florescent lights ? The ceiling was not deep enough for canned lighting, so we went with track lighting.232323232%7Ffp393%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A736%3Anu0mrj

232323232%7Ffp397%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A4%3A93nu0mrj  I apologize for the Elk head – We live in Colorado and my hubby hunts…. Below is a picture of the arch my hubby added to the short hall. The door to the left if the main bathroom. We added a linen closet also. The other door at the end is a small bedroom and the door to the left is another bedroom. Remember I live in a small home. My square footage is not quite 1500.

232323232%7Ffp393%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D32358744%3A7373nu0mrj See my lovely light fixture – NOT. My hubby added the arch to the short hallway and also the large arch separating the living room from the dining room.  The living room is next to be stripped down to studs and flipped.232323232%7Ffp392%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D3235%3A9789%3B99%3Bnu0mrj  The kitchen cabinets are Kemper – this is the same company who makes Thomasville cabinets. They are solid oak and I got the dove tail drawers. I also upgraded the drawer fronts to match the door which cost me an extra $750 which I thought was worth it. The cabinets were the most expensive part of the remodel costing $9000.00 – that was with a 10% off sale.  I have a cookie sheet cabinet and the drawers left of the stove pull out for pots and pans. I have looked at model homes for fun from time to time and I am now a Cabinet Snob – I always have to pull out the drawers and open the doors to see how they are made. It surprises me that homes selling for $600,000.00 range , sometimes have very cheap cabinets. Yes, I am a Cabinet Snob…..232323232%7Ffp393%3Enu%3D3247%3E277%3E69%3A%3EWSNRCG%3D3235%3A9789%3B99%3Anu0mrj  The cabinet man tried to talk me out of the corner kitchen appliance – he said they take up too my space. I wanted one and love it. I learned that if I like it and want it , I will be happy. I store my food processer and other items in it. I got probably 7 estimates on my cabinets. I am happy I did get many estimates because I got several ideas on what I wanted. The large corner area is called “City Scape” because of the staggered heights. I designed the layout.2007 003 Appliances in and before the backsplash was done. We did not do granite – as it would have been 1/2 our budget. We got a laminate (free with the purchase of the cabinets – I really shopped the deals) and we can update the counter tops at a later time. I do love the color of the counter. I would have loved a farmhouse apron sink –but they at least a grand. I bought a swanstone sink a super big one – at least as big as a farmhouse apron sink and a 1/4 of the price. I love it because I can fit whole cookie sheets in it. I never used the double sink much before. I have had lots of compliments on my sink – especially from men – LOL ! If I hand wash dishes, I just put a big pan on one side to do the rinsing – easy peasey. I also got a button on the sink for the garbage disposal. This is the first garbage disposal I have ever had – I love it.064 The floors of course were not level – we had to lay a concrete type leveling compound through out the kitchen. This was a 3 day job –and I might add a major pain in the behind.

073

026 012 My new Kitchen Aid dishwasher if in….Short story I purchased LG appliances and have had MAJOR problems with all 3 – all of course after the warranty ended. I will not buy LG appliances again – EVER.035

023 The kitchen island is a Martha Stewart from K-mart. I bought it a couple of years ago – painted it black of course. I had it in my studio but, decided to add it to my kitchen. I have new “used” furniture for my studio and they are awaiting their makeovers ! I know I should take pictures of a “neutral” season – maybe after the first of the year – maybe after I finally get that French door BLACK fridge…maybe someday.

Great transformation, Kammy. I stopped by to find out how you are doing. I hope you are having a nice weekend!...Christine

Tara said...

It looks fantastic!! I love the "cityscape" aspect of your cabinets!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Wow! Very Pretty - and like your Fall decor. You and your husband did a great job.

Lori E said...

Absolutely fabulous Kammy. You guys did a great job. It is showroom worthy. Damned cabinet guys always try to talk us out of what we want. I dumped two over they way they did that and didn't listen to what I was saying and we went with an old guy who suggested a few things but never ever tried to tell me what I wanted was the wrong thing.
Good to know about your appliances. My laptop is an LG and so far it has been okay, about 4 years.
Once again kudos to you on your great remodel.

Lisa said...

This looks beautiful and I bet you will enjoy it for many years. I see you are a Longaberger fan! Me too!

Patti Cakes said...

Oh how wonderful!! What a major job there. Love the MS island.

Rita @ Goodwill Haunting said...

I LOVE your cabinets ... what an awesome transformation. And to think you all did it yourselves ... that would be a never-ending project for me! I really enjoyed reading your post.

Gwen said...

So much hard and beautiful work!

I really like how the colors of the cabinets, counter, and back splash play off of each other.

I also really love your light fixture!

Shelia said...

Oh, Kammy! How beautiful your kitchen turned out to be! I know you're enjoying it so much. You probably saved a lot of money since you and your hubby di it! Oh, I'm so proud of you!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Eileen said...

I LOVE your makeover, Kammy! It is really a wonderful job that you've done! Your pictures look like they belong in a magazine, you and your husband must be so proud!
Doesn't it feel so good? What a sense of accomplishment you must have!
Kudos!
I love it all!
And your counter tops look like granite! Good choice on the color/pattern.
I'm a cabinet snob too! When we did our kitchen over (seven years ago now!) I made sure we went high-end on that too!
And I hunted high and low for a granite apron front sink (they wanted well over a grand!), I got lucky and found a small no-name company online that got me one from overseas for a few hundred (including shipping!). When the granite guys came to put in the counters they were in awe! They couldn't believe the deal I got on the sink.
Wish I had done that same shopping around like you with the cabinets! It pays to do your homework.

Really beautiful job!
All the best,
Eileen

Star said...

Your kitchen is gorgeous and I love the way you've decorated it too. My kitchen needs a similar make over but I can't find anyone to do it for me so far. I have been trying for years to get someone interested in doing what I want and it's so hard. I keep hoping. Meanwhile, your post has inspired me again. One day I will get it done, I will, will, will.
Blessings, Star

Rambling Girl said...

Kammy, you guys did a great job, you better not let the word out, or someone will be wanting to hire you!!! I can't believe all you accomplished and not feeling well, surgery on top of that! Quite a woman you are!!! Looks awesome and of course the fall decor add the finishing touch. . .

blushing rose said...

You did good, sweetie. It is lovely. And, look at all the autumn decor/accessories. Worth every moment of hard work & expense. Have a great weekend. TTFN ~Marydon

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh, it is stunning. I love it all. What a beautiful job and I love all the finishes. Your accessories are gorgeous too. I really like the island being black, it is so pretty. You have a ton of storage, and that is soooo important. You did a wonderful job with your design. Hugs, Marty

Beth said...

WOW! What a transformation. You and your husband did an awesome job. See. All that hard work paid off! Your fall decor is beautiful.

Jane said...

Kammy - Thanks for taking us on a tour of your fabulous new kitchen...this was better than any makeover show on HGTV!! I congratulate both you and your husband for taking on and completing such a huge project...I know I could not have done it. Everything about it is beautiful and you can pat yourselves on the back for a job very, very well done. Love all the cabinets, the black accents....everything!

Debbie at the Shabby Bungalow said...

Wow your kitchen looks fantastic - yo have both done so well - what a pair of hard workers you are. I realy like the cabinets they do look quality. We are hoping to re do our kitchen next year but we have less than a quarter of your budget so our cabinets will have to be cheap! I am just looking oforward to getting rid of a kitchen that must have been here for about 30 years !

Marilyn said...

Everyone already said everything I would have said, but I'll repeat it anyway! The place looks GRAND!! I once had a large single sink and would love to have one again. It's nice to know someone from our "neck of the woods" can do great work! Blessings to you and your family.

Sharing with Sherri said...

Kathy said...

An amazing amount of effort and thought! I think you should all be proud of yourselves...What a beautiful kitchen!!! worth all you put into it! xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

Ali said...

Absolutely gorgeous! I love it! I am starting to revamp my kitchen, but am doing it a little at a time and really cheaply. Some day we will be able to tear out the plaster walls and do it right, but for now it will get a little new paint and maybe a new tile floor =) You did a fabulous job!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Kammy,
Oh girl, I love your kitchen! Everything looks so pretty! I had to laugh about the cabinet snob thing, I am definately a cabinet snob too! It is so worth getting good cabinets and the laminate counters look great! Granite is overrated anyway! I love all your beautiful autumn decor, and how you have arranged it all! I so hope your feeling better too! Great Post, so much fun! Cindy

Miss Mustard Seed said...

What a great transformation. Those cabinets were terrible! Fake wood? Ick. You must be thrilled with the outcome (and to be done.) I especially like the island. Nice job!

salmagundi said...

Great job, Kammy; and what a lot of work. I know because over the last 50 years we have done some doosies of remodels. Now, enjoy your kitchen - I'm sure you will for a long time. Take care, Sally

Nicole @ BugaBoos said...

Ok, I know I commented on this when you first posted it but I don't see it? So here goes again...LOVE it!! It's so awesome! I would sit and stare at it in awee..I can't wait to have a pretty kitchen like yours!

Thanks for Stoppin by to see me! I just thought it was weird and uncomfortable shopping through the house when the lady had just passed away and the family was ALL their visiting. It was very awkward, that's all.

Michelle said...

WOW..what a huge difference! Love the arched entries...so cool! And the cabinets with the painted island are just gorgeous!

Great job!

Debbie said...

You did a beautiful job on your kitchen, and the island just adds to it. Great job. Love all the fall decorations too. Debbie

Sandy said...

Kammy,
You have a beautiful kitchen. My favs were you city scape cabinets and your center island. I know where you are coming from waiting on the black refrigerator,I am doing the same. Looks like I might not be waiting too much longer on mine, because my ole gals days are numbered. I never know if she will be operational tomorrow.

Oh My! Ya'll did an amazing job on your kitchen remodel! It looks fantastic! Love the black island and appliances with the wood cabinets! ~hugs, Rhonda :)

Oh, and forgot, Love all your fall decorations! :)

Adrienne said...

Like, WOW! Loving that island... it all looks amazing!

Susie Q said...

It's gorgeous and $9K for cabinets is very reasonable and very good. My DH is a cabinetmaker and I'm like you...I've walked into very expensive homes and the cheap cabinets they put up and charge the earth for....and I am sure you know the name of the local cabinetmakers that start with a "T"...they have the market with high end custom homes in the area cornered (for now), and they are really cheap (and expensive!). We've gone into homes for new kitchens & seen the ones that came with the house...and gone in a fixed their crap, replaced door fronts, made fridge panels, etc.

Looks really nice~

Brenda said...

It's beautiful! And so like you guys to take on the tough jobs. I love the island! I figured you had it made. I'm going to look for that online.
Brenda

randee said...

what a fabulous redo. i love everything you did. each picture just kept getting better.

that was some amazing elk's head! one of my nephews has deer heads(are they called trophies?) in almost every room of his house, even his bedroom.

hope your lab results are showing that you are on the mend & hope you are feeling stronger everyday.

What a fantastic transformation! I especially love that you chose a black island for the kitchen! Such contrast and beauty. Thanks for sharing!

You did a fantastic job. I just love how the black sets everything off.

Vicci @theplaidbasket said...

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Everything is so wonderful INCLUDING the Longaberger! Imagine my delight when I saw this post...FINALLY...a Longaberger collector decorator. I cannot describe my elation! The cabinettes are gorgeous and the rooster cookie jar is still to die for. Your cheeks must hurt each morning when you walk into your kitchen, from the ear to ear grin that must appear. You did a fantastic job!

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

Wow! Kammy, the hard work you put into shows big time. A beautiful transformation!
Stop by when you can, friend!

Very nice job!

It looks gorgeous!

Patti Cakes said...

Kammy, I don't know what happened. I put on 5 or 6 lbs. Grrrrrrrrrrrrr! It's gone now but I haven't lost any weight. Went for a walk today.

I have several things I want to paint but cannot decided what color. One thing is a bird cage. I'm going to go back through your post and see what you used. I need help!!

nanny said...

You have to be SO VERY PROUD!!!! You worked hard for your beautiful kitchen....congratulations!!! I think the laminate is very pretty, looks great with cabinets.

Phyllis@AROUND THE HOUSE said...

Hi Kammy, love the new kitchen and it is hard to believe you did all that on a budger, Love the island, it all looks so beautifully designed. great job, love all the autumn decorations...stop by for a visit...Phyllis

Patti Cakes said...

Yes John will have to take me to Walmart. We have a spray gun too. Big paint party tomorrow. I'm going to paint EVERYTHING!!

Julia said...

I LOVE that you have done this on such a budget. Fab work Kammy! I've seen some people add beadboard or paneling to a fridge to make it bearable. It might be worth a shot until you can spring for the one you want. (I got a black french door/ bottom freezer for our house when we moved in. But all other appliances were part of the deal.) Darn thing cost more than anything else in the house! Go figure.

I hope you get what you love soon!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello~I've just strolled into your blog for my first visit...I've enjoyed taking a peek at your past posts. What beauty! You've got so many wonderful treasures.
What an ambition undertaking with incredible results!!
The one thing that can cheer me up as I watch summer come to a close is... the anticipation of fall and all the autumnal colors that come with it and the inspiration it provides for creating. I love the fall foliage swagged across the top of the cabinets.


I've bookmarked you in my favs.
I look forward to coming by your charming blog again.
Come by for a visit. Your company would be nice.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

Kammy! You did a wonderful job! Boy - you guys can just pat yourselves on the back! And how does it feel to have a bright and shiny, brand new kitchen? I can smell all the wonderful meals you are now preparing all the way to California. Course, you are in Colorado, which is where I'd LOVE TO BE!!!! sigh.
Great job. It looks FAB!

nannykim/spindle cottage said...

Wow--can't believe all of the work you guys had to do!! It looks really nice. I am wondering what are LG appliances? What the LG stands for.

My kitchen has the old wooden cabinets that probably are from a 50's update--Ha! But I like them because they go with the style of the house (hey, and look at all the money and time I have saved!! I would like a bigger sink since I do all the dishes by hand.)

That is an awesome transformation. And the fact that you guys did most of the work yourselves - wow - my hat is off to you! Good job!

Wow, that transformation is incredible! I just adore all your fall decor also - it couldn't look more beautiful :)

Cheryl said...

Wow!! You did a fantastic job woman! I'm jealous, lol. I love the black butcher block island too:) Black is also my favorite color and I love the plant stand next to the fridge with the pumpkin arrangement. Nice!

Wow Kammy, what a terrific transformation. I love the touches of black in here with the wood and all. Fabulous!!
I am catching up on some blog reading, something it seems I never have time for.
Hugs, Linda
