Met. Monday & Sunday Favs - Mini Kitchen Redo

Be sure to visit her blog to see everyone that is participating. There have been some incredible posts and you really don't want to miss any of them.
Today I am showing the repost of my Mini Kitchen Redo. This was one of the first posts I did. If you have seen this, please forgive, if not I think this shows that even a very mini kitchen redo can make a huge difference.
When we moved in we had the basic builder bland kitchen. White walls, white appliances, white sink, beige formica counters and blonde maple cabinets. The first thing I did was paint the walls a deep chocolate brown. At least you could see the cabinets now.
Next I polished the cabinets with a dark paste wax. Added hardware, undercounter lights, stainless sink and new faucet. The granite remnant was a fabulous gift. We added some extra width to the counter and put corbels underneath. Granite remnant - Huge Upgrade. I love how the granite pulled the whole kitchen together and gives it a polished look.
A few different accessories and this is how it looks today. I just love it.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my kitchen. I look forward to your visits and hope you'll come back soon.
