A Farmhouse Kitchen

This kitchen started out with plain builder-grade everything.

Let's face it this kitchen was UGLY! But it had great bones.

So I put my design layers to work. Worked a little design magic and it turned out fantastic! 

First, we installed new flooring and painted the walls. That made a huge difference. Then we installed a tray ceiling and added new lighting, then painted again. New appliances were next along with another paint color. The last step was to change out the countertops and installing a marble backsplash that went all the way to the 10' ceilings. We ended up removing two cabinets to add open shelving. LOVE!! We also added a trim detail and hardware to the cabinet doors and painted them with a hand-distressed finish. Framing out the windows really balanced out the space and finished the room off nicely.
