the kitchen reveal


Hello World!

I’m finally sitting down to blog! Oh my, stop the press!

For good reason too, I wanted to finally share with you our updated kitchen.

First a trip down memory lane…

Really old kitchen

2007 – what our kitchen looked like when we first moved in…ummm yeah and this is even after we painted the cabinets. It worked though, we were young and had a lot of parties here.

Old kitchen

2009 remodel – we pushed out the house to enlarge the kitchen and add a breakfast nook. Loved my kitchen but definitely had some regrets later on about the granite and not going with white cabinets.

2013 – the husband gave the go ahead to paint the cabinets. Yippee!

And here’s the final result!!

We decided to take off four of the cabinet doors hoping it would open the space up more, I really love how it turned out!

Also switched out all the hardware, this process drove me nuts I probably ordered about 20 different pulls because I so wanted cup pulls but in the end our cabinets have so much detail that a simple sleek pull complimented them so much better. The knobs were easy, I knew I wanted crystal and found some great ones at House of Antique Hardware. The pulls are from School House Electric

The cabinet color is Benjamin Moore’s Simply White and the wall color is Revere Pewter 50% formula, one of my all time fave colors!

I can never pass up a good throw pillow, love that I now have some in my kitchen!

pillow sources are: spotted black & white, pink geometric clearance bin at West Elm, Ikea stockholm pillow, gold polka dot, pink Ikat

The ever so popular hicks pendant, I’m sorry I will never grow tired of this light. Its just gorgeous. That is all.

I’m loving our bench, not only does it free up so much space in our tiny nook but meals have become so much more intimate and cozy.  My favorite is breakfast with my Zo and the morning sun beaming through.

Just picked up this little cart for our smoothie station.

We gave Zoe her own little drawer and she just loves sitting in it. Ha! I hope it doesn’t break.

Very VERY special thanks to my amazing husband for all his hard work on this project and for putting up with all my indecisiveness.

I love you.

    Fabulously done. I am completely envious of the turquoise geometric printed bowls. Would you mind sharing where you got those?


    • Lizzie Stewart September 16, 2013 at 7:31 PM #

      Hi Kate!

      I got them at Crate & Barrel about 3 years ago.
      Not sure if they still have them.

      Thanks for reading!

    Love the choices you made. Gorgeous pulls, pillows and that lovely light. Would love to get sources on your pillows. Great job!

      Hi Ashley!

      Thank you so much!

      I just updated the post with the pillow sources!

    Wow! Congrats on the updates. I love that you went ahead and painted the cabinets white, it really makes the space feel modern, chic and sophisticated. I also love that you brought in pops of color to keep it fresh. I am sure it was a lot of work!


  9. bwjenson August 24, 2013 at 6:08 PM #

    Gorgeous. Love the choices you made. Especially the cabinet hardware and light fixture. I wanted to ask how the b/w striped rug in your nursery has held up over time? I’m thinking about getting one and curious how well it has worn for you with a baby and dog in the house.


    • Lizzie Stewart September 16, 2013 at 7:44 PM #

      Hi there!

      The rug has been holding up great. Any accidental spills have come up great with just a baby wipe.
      I try not to let the dog in her room to much as the dog hair shows up a lot on the black stripes.

      But other than that I love it!

    You have a beautiful space here. We are about to embark on a backsplash adventure — would you mind telling/showing how you ended the tile where it meets the wall? It does not look like you used a special end cap from the photos, which would make our lives easier if we could go that route. 🙂

    I loooove the kitchen! I really like white cabinets too, they’re so classy and clean looking and they really go with any style! I must have that white owl on your counter. Is it from Target?


    • Lizzie Stewart September 16, 2013 at 7:30 PM #

      Thank you so much!

      I actually got the owl at Z Gallerie, I see they have the gold one online.

      Good Luck!

    My question is where did you take the cabinets to be sprayed? Did they come in and spray the wall cabinets too? How did you know who to call?

    Gorgeous kitchen. Good job. I was wondering how you did the paint 50%. Did you just halve all the colorants or did you use the regular revere pewter and then mix it 1:1 with the base?

    Can you tell me what is the name of your granite? It looks like mine which is new venetian gold. I have been struggling with choosing a gray paint color that goes with my granite. If yours is nvg, then I have absolutely just found my paint color….Your kitchen is gorgeous!!
