Client Project Reveal: An 80′s Kitchen Transformed

awdh McCormick Kitchen 2

We are excited to be revealing the kitchen remodel that we told you about several weeks ago! If you follow us on Facebook, you know that we held an open house last week per the request of several neighbors who were anxious to see the finished product. As I mentioned in my last post, this project took place only one street away from the house that I grew up in…it seems that the neighborhood is just as friendly now as it was then! We had a great time at the open house, so thank you to those of you who came out and to our awesome clients who so willingly welcomed their new neighbors into their new home!

Notice the green chandelier above the mirrored coffee table….very subtle, yet just the right amount of color.

Some Minor Changes Around Our Home

AWDH-living-2-1024x682

I know that I’ve written about my living room as well as my kitchen in previous posts….but we made a few changes in these rooms, and I wanted to share them with you….

Remember how I told you about our new chandelier for our living room? Well it has finally been installed! I am happy with it, but it really needs to be lowered by about a foot…that way it helps fill more of the empty wall space above the television. Don’t you agree??

Here is our living room before the chandelier was installed…

Here is the living room with the new chandelier…

We’ve also had some minor painting projects going on around our house. When the guys came in to remodel our kitchen, we also had them paint all of our plantation shutters. They were previously a stain grade walnut color, so we had them painted an off white to match the kitchen cabinets. Here is a picture of the living room with the stained shutters….

And here is a picture after we had the shutters painted…it really helps brighten up the space…

Something else that was bothering me was the fact that the walls above our kitchen cabinets were left white after our kitchen remodel was done. This was my fault as I had originally asked the painters not to paint this the same gray color as the rest of the walls (not sure what I was thinking).

I was also bothered by the fact that the inside of the glass uppers were left white, which made them look extremely bright and unfinished.

So I had them come back last week and paint all of the walls above the cabinets, as well as the inside of the glass uppers, the same shade of gray as the rest of the walls. What exactly is “that shade of gray” you ask? I can now confirm that it is in fact “Ashes” by Behr.

Also, I finally added some decor to the glass uppers .These have been bare for months as I have not been able to figure out how I wanted to fill the space….I decided to fill them with my classic white dishes from Pottery Barn. I have stacked bowls, stacked coffee mugs, stacked plated, etc…

Here is the kitchen immediately after the remodel with the stark white walls above and inside the glass uppers…

And here it is after the gray was added to those areas…I know it’s not a dramatic change, but it sure helps tone down the bright white lights (especially on the inside of the glass uppers), don’t you think??

Oh……and we also had the shutters in our bedroom painted white. Here they are before…

And here they are after…it looks much cleaner, don’t you think??
