Updating a kitchen

The color is not accurate here, but it’s the same as the kitchen paint.

The home owner was very pleased with how everything turned out and loved the finished product. If anyone here in Birmingham is interested in the Meadow Brook area, I can put you in touch with him.

He just couldn’t see my vision until after it was installed and the lights were in place. This is a great way to get rid of that fluorescent box without getting can lights installed.

Decorating a home doesn't have to cost a fortune and I've spent years thrifting at antiques markets and yard sales, finding those treasures that make a home unique. The breakfast nook got a new fixture too, this one from Lowes.Reminds me of the Restoration Hardware fixture, but a lot less $$.Lovely brushed stainless steel faucet works nicely with the double stainless undermount sink. Since the existing hinges on his cabinets were already antique brass and they are not hidden, I decided the best way to update them would be to add antique brass knobs and pulls, so I ordered these off Ebay for him. With complimentary bin pulls for the drawers, it totally gives this kitchen a fresh new look without starting over with the hinges.The tile is a sturdy porcelain with mottled brown/tan and complements the granite nicely. There is still a little bit of touching up under the countertops to be done and you can see that not all the doors had the knobs attached when I took these pics.
