After a long weekend and several week nights of painting, I can finally say the kitchen cabinets are done.  Say hello to our new kitchen.

The stools seem to disappear into the island.  Not sure if I want to leave them this way or find some new ones.  I could try to recover the seats and paint the legs.

I removed the dark striped valance and it already brightened the kitchen by allowing more light in.  I hope to find some fabric soon to make another window treatment.  I was thinking about a roman shade.  It wouldn't bother me to leave the window bare either.

It thought going to darker cabinets would make the room feel dark but I think it actually adds another dimension.

I found this rug at Target.  It added more blue and I loved the whimsical play on chevron.

So glad I went with stainless steel pulls instead of keeping the old nickel knobs.  They pop off the brown and have a presence on the doors and drawers.

They also coordinate with the stainless appliances and canisters on the counter.  The dark cabinets now pull the brown from the back splash we installed. 

Here's a reminder of where we started.

And now.

Ahhh.  Now I can relax and enjoy our new kitchen.  I thought this day would never come.
