Total Basset Case: Kitchen : The Reveal

Kitchen : The Reveal

I have been dying to hit publish on this post. 
This one has been a long time coming...months in the works.

Sometime around last Spring Mister and I began tossing the idea around of renovating a few things in the kitchen.   It started with wanting to replace the countertops which lead to a new sink and faucet which led to new cabinets and so on and so on.
Well, we all know how those things go, one things leads to the other and here we are...
New kitchen!!
Mister and I are OVER the moon about it.  
Obsessed.
But to fully appreciate the after, let's take a quick look back at the before.
Ouch.
Let's go back to the pretty
So much better!

I am planning on a few full posts laying out all of the details.
How we lived without a sink and water in our kitchen for 2 months,
the selection process with a resource list, the good the bad and the ugly of the whole process and what is located in each of those new cabinets.
Along with any other questions you may have!
(Mister surprised me with the Charlie jar!! We have been on the hunt for weeks for it!)
But for now, here is the short on the details...
We purchased the cabinets from Ikea, had a sub contractor (provided through Ikea) install them, countertops are Ceaserstone and backsplash is from Overstock that we installed ourselves.

Don't mind me I will just be over here finally cooking up a storm and chuckling at Floyd's Charlie treat jar.

So excited to see this is done! And it turned out SO great! Excellent choices on the backsplash and cabinet color. And I love how the updated faucet and cabinet hardware make it so modern and sleek, but it still all looks so livable.

Oh it looks so good! I love the counter tops, the backsplash and the cabinets. Ok really I love it all including the Charlie cookie jar. I've been looking for a backsplash with no luck in finding something I like but now I'm going to have to check Overstock. Who knew?? Maybe we just need to hire you and Mister to help with our kitchen. :)
