White Kitchen and Ikea Island; Before and After

Now this is a before and after!  I wish I had more picture to show you but  you will just have to run over to Completely Coastal and ask Maya if she has anymore.  Check out the total change:

Kitchen Remodel Before
Kitchen Remodel After
The before and after of our kitchen remodel. The messy process is behind me now, and I couldn’t be happier. The space turned out exactly how I had envisioned it. The black stove top blends in with the granite, so does the faucet. And I didn’t expect to find the perfect kitchen island at IKEA. That was so easy! Removing the load bearing wall and those lovely vintage tiles not so much. The two things you can’t see in the picture are the fridge which is to the left from where I was standing when taking the photograph, and the closet that hides a stacked washer dryer next to the dishwasher.

All the way to the left, you might recognize my Seashell Door. Lindsey of Casart Coverings posted it together with their Trompe L’Oeil Shell Door that I had featured here. The two are almost twins!

It makes me tired just looking at it!
Don’t you love the after?
