i lied....

...and i told you i would show you my kitchen on Wednesday or Thursday. I lied. I couldn't wait to show you. My friend Paige told me that there would be no more kraft mac n cheese in this kitchen with the new do, so i do hope she's right......






















The cabs were painted my favorite cottage white, it's what i use on most of the furniture that i paint. I also incorporated grey's, since the walls are pale grey and the counters are black quartz.
I used the glass knobs that i sell in shop for the hardware.



































I switched out the shutter shelf i originally had above the window and replaced it with this antique wood pediment, and i also hung one of my white iron pot holders that holds some of my favorite measuring spoons from Anthro.
{which btw.....i still have not heard back from them......i'll be patient..........}





















I am amazed at what a little paint did , and why oh why did i wait sooooo long?
So AnthropoloChic.

I love it! I love how the cabinets have the little open cabinet at the top for stuff to show 'n tell. So cute!
The iron pot holder is cute too. I've always wanted one but never knew where to put one!
Beautiful kitchen!

Andrea Villarreal said...

I love it. What a difference and I often ask myself the same thing "why did I wait sooo long" when I finally see the end result. The pot rack is awesome. What are you waiting to hear from Anthro about??

Chablis said...

AaaaaaahhhhhhhMAZING!!! Yes, no more Kraft mac n' cheese for this kitchen. The pot holder is gorgeous. I love the dried flowers hanging from it.

Fifi Flowers said...

paige said...

oh kasey, i'm squelling with delight ( i dont usually write the word squeeling so i'm spelling it both ways just in case)
when it doubt, always go white!
isn't that a great motto

i love that feeling when you do something you love so much you wonder why on earth you waited so long

i LOVE it
& i still love you even though you served those poor babies boxed kraft....sigh

Jeanneoli said...

It looks great and most importantly I am happy that you love it. But please stop saying anthropolochic.....I know you want it to catch on...just stop:-)

Heidi said...

Wow! Your kitchen is marvelous! Its so cozy, fresh and inviting!! I LOVE IT!! :)

Julie said...

Love it!

Lissa said...

okay...1st Jeanne's comment made me laugh out loud! 2nd HOW AWESOME IS THIS!!! I see tons of cute Anthro touches, lola b touches, I used to have those measuring spoons on your pot rack but I loaned them out and they broke... As you can see I took the time to blow up every picture, oh yes I did!

tHe DoDd FaMiLy said...

Love it!!! super cute!!! i love your blog.

barbaramooney3 said...

OK, I have been wanting to do this for the longest time. My kitchen has the same exact problem yours did. I know they would be great in white. I just can't take adding one more big cleaning job to the house each week and I am so afraid the kids and darling hubby won't quite keep with the keeping them clean program. Cherry is bad but not as bad as white that looks dingy. Do you have a plan?

C Maisy said...

OMG!!!!!!!! I can't believe I had to see it in pics. Can I come over tomorrow!!
Kasey~ It looks AMAZING!!!!!!!!
I think you may have rendered me speechless!

flax and spindle said...

Allegra said...

I'd like to have Kraft in that kitchen! That kitchen can make anything taste as good as the kitchen looks. I can just tell!!

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

I love it, it's just so YOU. AnthropoloChic indeed!
~Michelle

Mindy said...

Gor-geous! I would be happy to have that kitchen for 7-8 minutes. Just enough time to whip up the famous blue box.

What a marvelous job you did! I am insanely jealous!!! (You deserve it for putting up with that Cherry!) :)

Wendy @ The Shabby Nest said...

Kasey!!!! It is simply stunning!!!! You have such amazing taste. I really love that little stack of plates under the cloche. It makes me wish I had more display space in my kitchen. Sigh. You've given me more ideas to mull over.

truly blessed said...

BEAUTIFUL! I love the mix of grey, white and yellow. Can you come decorate my kitchen??? I'm also lovin' all of the chalkboard accents. It's so homey yet fresh feeling.

Brandie said...

I L.O.V.E. it! It's amazing how magical a coat of white paint can be, isn't it:) Fabulous sweetie!

Lara said...

Beautiful! So peaceful and enjoyable. I love it!

By the way - what is the name of the paint color that you used on the cabinets?

Leah C said...

Love, love the new look! Well worth the wait:) You've outdone yourself, Kasey...your kitchen is sooooo beautiful!

Susan said...

Love it. So pretty! Even if you still make Kraft Mac and Cheese I think it will taste so much better in this kitchen!

Fresh Poppy Sisters said...

Super gorgeous! I want to paint now...not sure what, but I want to paint! Is "cottage white" and "swedish greey" the actual names of your paint colors? Who is the maker?

Love your whole house makes me want to cry with envy everytime I see pics!

Federica said...

Hello Kasey! You're new kitchen is great! Love it!!! The color is W.O.W!! You have a great taste!
Enjoy your new kitchen!

Rue said...

Good morning Kasey :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It's perfect, seriously!!! I can't believe what a difference it made and it gives me great hope for my kitchen.

The little sign that says "Please wash your own dishes" cracks me up. I think I need one of those ;)

rue

Laurel said...

Delurking to tell you how absolutely beautiful your kitchen looks. I went back and looked at the old kitchen and WOW! It now looks so cottagey (is that a word?) and clean and crisp. I love love love it. Enjoy. It must make you happier every time you step into it. It would if it was mine. Sigh.....

Brenna LaPray said...

apriliniowa said...

Thank-you for the nice comment on my blog & your kitchen is so pretty. So many delicate touches. I don't like to cook myself but a pretty kitchen would certainly help, I think. Loved the little chalkboard "Please Wash Your Dishes." Does it work, I wonder? ;)

Suzanne : : S.HOPtalk said...

It looks fab girlie!!! You don't know how badly I want to do the same thing. I left behind my lovely white kitchen in our old house. I inherited a new "maple" kitchen. Soooo not me! Just gotta wait until hubby goes on a biz trip for a coupla weeks...he'll never know the difference. ; )

SashaKay said...

What brand of paint did you uses? im dying to have it, i cant seem to find one like yours!
Did you just do classic white on your cabinets?
Also love your living and dining room colors! gorgous! if you still know the brand and color of them id love to have them!
I Envy your beautiful home!
XoXo

♥Aubrey said...

I've been trying to figure out how my kitchen cabinets will look white and you've defined that to the tee for me. My cabinets look similar to your before pics. Just a tad lighter in color. I'm eager to paint mine now! Let the project begin....Thanks for being so inspiring. Your blog has a very relaxing feel to it. I love your profile pic...So fun :)
