Today, I want to share a gorgeous kitchen remodel from my brother-in-law, Jon!
This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
When his family first moved into their new house, they made a to-do list of things to improve in the kitchen and dining room area:
- Replace flooring
- Paint trim
- Paint walls
- Update backsplash
- Replace most of cabinets
- Paint cabinets around refrigerator
- Change hardware on cabinets
- Upgrade chandelier
- Remove cabinets above bar
- Upgrade countertops
- Upgrade appliances
This kitchen was actually the inspiration behind my own kitchen remodel. I knew Jon had used Stix brand primer and Benjamin Moore paint with great success. I used both on my kitchen cabinets and they have held up great for a year now!
- Cabinets: from Home Depot
- Cabinets around fridge: Stix Primer and Benjamin Moore Paint in Buckhorn
- Walls: Benjamin Moore in Bennington Gray
- Countertops: Santa Cecilia Granite from the Home Depot
- Table: Ashley Furniture
- Wall Decor: Exact / Similar
- Bar Stools: Lowes
- Chandelier: Old fixture, spray painted
- White Keurig
I love the clean, modern feel of this kitchen! Like my kitchen remodel, removing the cabinets over the bar area makes such a HUGE difference! Can you believe how open it feels?
To save money, the cabinets surrounding the fridge were painted rather than replaced. They went with a two tone look rather than trying to match paint colors exactly. That tile on the walls comes in large sections and was a breeze to install. Find it here.
Doing the bulk of the work yourself, obviously saves a lot of money. Almost everything here was done on their own, with the exception of the countertops. Don’t you love that bar height table and Fixer Upper inspired wall decor? I’m also crushing on that white Keurig.
Leave any questions below and I’ll try my best to answer them or ask Jon for his opinion!
