kitchen cabinets painted & hardware installed

Switching gears a little today from Christmas posts, back to a quick kitchen update.


 
We finally finished installing all our kitchen cabinet hardware and couldn't be happier with how the kitchen is turning out!
 
And a quick before picture:
 
 
 
And after paint and new hardware:
 
 
 
You can go here to see the paint process.  Next on the agenda is the lighting.  I've narrowed it down to three choices, but I'll need help deciding :) 
 
Here's a breakdown of our mini kitchen makeover:
 
install hardware
new lighting (replace 3 small pendants with 2 larger pendant lights)
replace backsplash
 
 
 

Merry Weekend!
