~One Room Challenge~{week 6, complete}

Well, that was a race to the finish.
I was literally finishing up back splash last night.

A huge thank you to Linda for including me in this incredible line up of talented ladies.
I hope I get invited back again :)

Today I am just going to show you a whole ton of photos of my finished kitchen and then tomorrow I will give you all the sources, paint colors, etc. 

If you would like to see what the room started out as, click here.

The kitchen is the first room you step into off the front porch.

So welcome, come on in!

It is so much lighter and brighter, it's like a breath of fresh air.
This room is pretty big, about 16x16, and functions not only as our kitchen but also as a little home office~or blogging corner.

New color on the bar stools and new cushions:


New pendant lights, gas cook top, and roman shades:




Brand new counter tops and back splash~can't go wrong with marble:


Roman shades for this window as well, and new vintage looking sconces on either side of the sink:



New runner……


And a soft grey/green on the island to match the pantry doors.


New oven…..



and sweet smelling lilacs.



A $3.00 vintage dough bowl on the coolest new pedestal wood thing :)


Beveled marble subway tiles and a thrifted bowl.



Favorite family photos framed in barn wood, and schumacher wallpaper
 I have been dreaming about for ages.


The "office" area got more cabinets and marble….




It functions so much better now!













This little niche turned into a tiny baking center. 
Right next to the pantry it is pretty handy.




I probably overdid it on the pictures.
I tend to do that.
I will be back tomorrow with all the details, so if you have any specific
 questions feel free to ask in the comment section!

Julie Khuu | Haute Khuuture said...

Melanie- first off, that skylight above the island is everything!!! Love how you played up the natural light by bathing the space in monochromatic hues...the grey feels so warm and intimate when it can easily borderline bland and cold. That gingham barstools are just darling! Very french country against a super mod backdrop- LOVE!

xo- Julie
Peace! Love! LOL!

SHERRY HART said...

Holy kitchen heaven....sorry it took me so long...I had too many appointments today! But I am in love with this gorgeous kitchen. The marble...swoon...I want so badly and now that I think of it probably could have had with the $$ I spent on the DR. I love how calm the space is and the Schumacher wallpaper....well of course it is killer! Good job girl!

LOVE the makeover. I'm in the midst of a kitchen facelift myself . I'm very interested in the cabinet painting details (I'm on my second go as well...). Did you brush, roll or spray? Great job!

Krystine @ www.KrystineEdwards.com said...

Melanie- Where can I start? STUNNING all the way, every detail is amazing and it just flows and is so well utilized and bright and just nothing short of fabulous! You rocked it woman! I want to sit in that kitchen with you and just chat over coffee!

Abby M. Interiors said...

Oh my gosh- What a gorgeous space. I would spend all of my time in here. Probably baking in that baking nook because of the wallpaper. ;-) I'm so excited for you to have the marble counters you've wanted for so long. YAY! Everything looks top notch. After all that hard work, now you can just enjoy it. xx

shari said...

Simply beautiful!! I have a question-are the sconces on the sides of the sink hard wired into the cabinets or are they somehow plugged in? Love those!!

Anneke McConnell said...

It looks absolutely AMAZING Melaine!!!!

Emily Ross said...

It’s been over 10 months since I’ve remodeled my kitchen and the compliments received from my family and friends just keep coming. I hired the team at Classic Kitchen and Bath in Illinois because they are a family business and have been around for as long as I can remember. Remodeling can be quite a hassle but these guys made the process much simpler for me. It was a great experience working with the team at CKB- a company that prides itself on quality workmanship, timeliness, and customer service. Visit their website today www.myclassickitchenandbath.com or call 630-515-9151. I highly recommend them to anyone considering a new kitchen or bathroom.

kate@willowinteriors said...

Wow!!! So gorgeous! The wallpaper, the marble, that island light fixture (!!!), the sconces! I can not believe what you got done in 6 weeks and how absolutely gorgeous it is! Well done!
