Farmhouse style kitchen makeover reveal

Y’ALL!!!! It’s finally here! The long awaited farmhouse style kitchen makeover is finally ready to reveal! It’s literally been years in the making, and I am so excited to finally be able to share the finished space with you guys.

Let’s back up for a minute and take a look back at where we started. These are the listing photos from before we bought the house. I was in a bit of a rush to get things started to remember to take proper before pics. It wasn’t any prettier once we moved in, though.

Umm, hello, orange cabinets and dated laminate counters. Yikes.

Here is the timeline of what we did to makeover the space:

  • Extend the cabinets to the ceiling by building cubbies on top of our existing cabinets
  • Extended our island so that it could accommodate our microwave at the end
  • Added a butcher block counter to it to add some warmth to the space
  • Replaced the rest of the counters with faux marble laminate
  • Replaced the sink with a white farmhouse sink and a gorgeous polished chrome faucet
  • Painted the cabinets white
  • Added “glass” panels to the upper cabinets
  • Replaced the cabinet hardware
  • Added a white subway tile backsplash
  • Built a range vent hood
  • Replaced the old appliances
  • Painted the pantry doors and added new hardware
  • Added shiplap walls while we were making over the dining room

It turned out even better than I imagined. It was definitely worth the wait. I’ve had so much fun decorating and re-decorating each season.

I will be sharing more tutorials for the rest of the projects that we did that haven’t been shared yet, so keep an eye out. What do you think? Do you think it’s an improvement from before?

  1. What is the height of the opening of the cubbies up top? I’d love to do this to my cabinets, but I don’t think the space I have above is enough.

    1. Hi, Traci! I don’t live in that house anymore or I would get an exact measurement for you, but believe it was about 12-14 inches.

      1. Did you mix the 2 stains or apply them separately? Did you use wood conditioner? I’m trying to achieve the same look. So any help is welcomed 🙂

        1. Hi there! I mixed the stains together. I didn’t use a conditioner. Probably should have. I don’t see why one wouldn’t help to even out the finish.
