Before and After: The Big Reveal!


Well, it is time to reveal the before and after shots of our living room, dining room, and kitchen. Everything is not finished, but that will take time to get done. We are lacking a lot of furniture and there are other projects I would like to do, but here it is for now. I think it looks very different from before and even my husband likes it! So, with further ado:

We painted them with Rustoleum Countertop Paint. Not quite the same as getting new countertops, but almost as good and a lot cheaper!

  4. I tend to like a much more modern look for myself, but this all looks wonderful. I really like it. It's bright and clean, cozy and welcoming.

  5. The changes are magical Kristen, although it is certain that a lot of blood, sweat and tears went into the transformation. You and Dvid have a beautiful nest!!

    Love Dee

  7. Thanks everyone! I am really happy with it! My parents did most of the work, they must be exhausted! I am in love with my kitchen now. The nice thing was that it changed the look completely with only minor costs and changes like wallpaper and paint.

  8. Hi Kris- It looks awesome! Congratulations- I love it- especially the kitchen- wow! What a great idea for the countertops- we are going to try that at Cody's parents cottage- what kind of paint did you use on the fireplace? I love the red legs on your couch- fun! Now you get to kick back and enjoy the fruits of you labour-

  9. Thanks Natasha! We just used regular old paint on the fireplace, same stuff that we used to paint the walls in the living room. The fireplace was already painted, so it didn't absorb a lot of paint. If you were painting bricks that hadn't already been paint, I would recommend priming it first. Actually, painting the fireplace was one of the most time consuming things, because there are so many cracks and little pits and bumps that you have to cover. But so worth it!
