But the results are so worth it!
Aren't the corner details yummy?
The plain front on the stove got a little embellishment- I love the little flair it adds.
They are much more our style! More farmhouse than frill. I didn't care for the golden-y glow the other ones put off. We really tried to make it happen with the schoolhouse pendants, but they were way out of our budget, and it just wasn't going to work. I really like what we chose though, and they flow with the rest of the fixtures that we have going on.
You can also see all the trim work we added to the island here. New base trim, and some thin moulding really enhance it. Here's was what it looked like before:
I have always loved the combo of bronzed pulls and glass knobs, and I finally have them!
This was one of the biggest expenses of the makeover, but it really adds so much.
I had a bit of a time finding the pulls I wanted that matched the previous size. These fit perfectly without me having to re drill any holes.
We are so happy with the end results! My husband gave me the best compliment. Half way through the project and after a long day of painting, he snuggled me and said, “I'm really proud of you honey.”
Now that this is done, I've set my sights on our nook. I want to finally complete this area!!!
