One Room Challenge: A Kitchen Remodel (Week 5)

One Room Challenge

With the end in sight .. All about finishes! 

Ever have a feeling that you are so close to the end but yet so far. That is exactly how I felt all week. We finished installing the big items last week -- Appliance are in, stone is in place and the final coat of paint was done.

All that said, we still needed to get the accessories installed (undermount lights, ceiling lights, wall finishes, and countertop chairs) and complete the touch up of the paint.

Finishing touches to the paint

I am loving the color of the cabinets and walls. After a complex process and a lot of effort we finally got what I was looking for -- 2 days of mixing the color, applying sample coats on different areas to make sure we like the final color in different ambient light and coordinating the color with the rest of the kitchen. We used Benjamin Moore paint -- 'Babies breath' for the walls, 'Decorators White' for the ceilings and a custom color (Hue of blue and green in a white + grey base color) for the cabinets. #BenjaminMoore

Installing additional lights

WAC Lighting LedME PRO ACLED Brushed Aluminum under cabinet bar light made a dramatic difference.

We're making some beautiful additions to the breakfast nook. I have been eying these statement pieces for a while and they are absolutely stunning!

There is never a dull moment until it is complete. I received 2 different finishes for the counter stools so i'm hoping to get it all together in time for the photoshoot next week.

Looking forward to everyone revealing their final results next week. I would like to thank Linda from Calling it Home for giving us a chance to showcase our projects.
