Stick a fork in me...I'm done!!

Before you read on, you still have time to enter my wonderful Janet Hill Studios Giveaway!
It is open until Monday night, March 21, 2011
Good Luck!
Hello friends.......yes, you heard me right...I'm finally DONE !
All of you who follow me, know that I have been working on my kitchen for a couple of months.
For my new friends, you can see my progression here and here.
First let me say that my kitchen was a lovely one...I really had no complaints except that I wanted to go light and bright. 
I also wanted to make this happen for as little money as possible. Hey ..a gal who spends hours in thrift shops is not about to fork over thousands for a new kitchen. is the 'old' kitchen. Standard builders oak cabinets. In this photo I had just painted the walls grey. I used Behr's Ultra Premium in Silvered Sateen. The old walls were a paprika red...big color change!

Drum roll please........................

and here is my new 'Farmhouse' style kitchen!
Well..what do you think?
Big difference, don't you think?
I love coming downstairs in the morning to this bright and cheery room.
So let's take a closer look, shall we?





Yes, I know I had said I was removing the doors above the fridge. 
I need a break..I'll get to it later  ;->

faux brick I never quite completed ;-(

Remember this old thrift store plate rack before

Reborn with a fresh coat of black paint. Perfect for hanging a favorite apron!

Now I have a small shelf to display a favorite clock, needlepoint redbird, handcarved Carolina Wren and a little votive bird that was a special gift from a sweet friend.


removed door & trimmed edges, hung cup hooks to create a litle teacup shelf

Small wooden teabag box I painted years ago

I just adore these corbels!
I painted Whisper, my sweet cat and friend of 21 years, onto a canvas place mat. Also painted the floral sugar jar.

I like how the sleek lines of the corbels mimic the lines of the beadboard

I worked very hard to do a nice finished  job with all the trim work.

What I love about the sink skirt is that I only need to sew up a new fabric to change the color scheme of the room.
It was my idea to carry the beadboard right down to the kickplate.
Nice professional touch I think.

I added beadboard and moulding around the island and painted it black. Black corbels were added to the ends of the island also.
Again...nice finished look.

my cabinets have totally lost their 'Builders Grade' look

I am so pleased with how the backsplash turned out. Adding the corbels was so worth it. They really add to the farmhouse look.

I painted the inside of the open cupboards using Tahini by Martha Stewart at the Home Depot.
The recipe box was a gift to my Mom that I painted back in the 90's.
She doesn't cook much anymore, so I am keeping it for her.

This is where the microwave's not going back!
After being without one for 8 weeks, I have decided it is not a necessity.
First my liberating!! We only think we cannot live without these things.

Fresh Rosemary and a sweet tin bird to keep me company while I wash dishes and watch the world go by.
So let's see my before kitchen one more time..

and now...

Yeah...I am pretty pleased with myself.
I would like to thank my secret agent for his assistance with cutting the big sheets of beadboard and for helping me with the detailed trim rock 007!
(even though your perfectionism nearly drove me crazy)
So are you wondering what all this cost me?
Adding up the cost of :
Paint & Primer
Beadboard (3 sheets)
Trim pieces
Cabinet Knobs
Corbels (8)
Skirt rod
Decorative German Porcelain Plates (Salvation Macy's) cheap!! (.75)
Hardware (nails,screws)
All from Home Depot!!
Many thanks to Bob my Home Depot paint guy
My grand total so far is ...
I know for a fact that if I had hired someone to do all this , I would have spent at least $2,000.00.
I got a few estimates and they were way up there!
So am I proud of my hard bet. 
Do you have a room that you would love to change or update, but think you don't have the know how or means to get it done?
I'm here to tell you that you positively can do it!
Never underestimate a woman on a restyle mission.
Thanks to Layla from The Lettered Cottage for her inspiration...I fell in love with your kitchen!
Until next kind and stay creative.

Wendy said...

Wow, it looks FABULOUS!!!

Lisa @ Shine Your Light said...

Janet!!! OH>MY>GOSH - your kitchen is fabulous! I had to keep scrolling back and forth between the before and afters! It was pretty before but I love all the details in the after....the beadboard, corbels, yellow interiors, so pretty! Congrats on how all your hard work paid off! Thanks for sharing -it's really lovely!

Kate Riley said...

Absolutely charming! Bravo, I'm so delighted every time I see someone turn a dated kitchen into the space of their dreams !! The yellow inside the cabinets is divine, and the fresh coat of white paint is gorgeous! Sharing on FB!!!


Atelier Conti said...

JANET JANET JANET! I've really been anticipating this definitely sucked me into this project. I just LOVE your pro. You and hubby are the bomb! (As we say). I am deeply impressed. Want to come redo my dining room now? I took all my stuff off the shelves hoping to inspire myself to dig into a little repainting project and so far I just divert my gaze every time I walk past that room. Maybe you will give me strength!

morninglorycottage said...

Hi! Just found your blog through Centsational Girl and I'm a new follower. Wow!!! Your kitchen is absolutely amazing. Bravo! Excellent job, well done. I'll be back.

Annette said...

I knew it would be stunning!! It's just incredible, Janet. I love everything about it, especially the teacup shelf! You did good!! said...

Gorgeous!!! I kept scrolling back and forth between the old and new kitchen... wow!!! You did a fabulous job and it's so nice to see it done so well on a budget!

Annie said...

That is amazing. Love the new look. Pat on the back for you.

Claire said...

Yowsers how good is that Janet?


Love, love love it.

Love all the little touches, corbels, cuphooks, sink curtain, open shelves and all the rest.

Oh Janet, you deserve to feel very proud of your effort your kitchen looks wonderful. Sweet little tin bird too and I love the pic of Whisper.

Well, this has been quite a journey now that it's all finished what is going to be your next project Janet?

Can't wait.............

Kathleen Grace said...

Oh Janet. I absolutely love it! You have been my inspiration throughout this remodel, I am still priming my bottom cabinets but I keep praying that my kitchen looks as beautiful as yours when I'm finished. You really have captured a farmhouse kitchen but in a fresh and bright way. I gthink I just spent half an hour scrolling back and forth through these photos! Great job my friend!

Kelly Ann said...

Woot looks awesome...

Gretel said...

It hardly looks the same kitchen! It's so light and airy (BTW do you know that it is actually bigger than our sitting room??) You've worked so hard on this, now you can just enjoy it - and at a fraction of the cost of a *professional* job (not sure if it would have looked any better though). said...

You are amazing! Can't believe the change in the entire personality of your kitchen. My two faves are the yellow paint inside the cabinets and the corbals! Great job! And I'm now your follower!

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Just gorgeous and so inspiring!! I have always wanted to paint the bottom beadboard of my island black and now I am going to do it! Thank You!! Enjoy your new kitchen it is just beautiful!

Wanda..... said...

Your beautiful kitchen leaves me almost teary eyed, Janet. So impressed and happy for you, was touched by all the charming small items you've painted, those little touches have made your kitchen a one of a kind 'work of art'...all your hard work defintely paid off.

Is there anything you can't do? I CAN'T come and redo my kitchen!

Liz said...

What can I say that hasn't already been said. STUNNING & INCREDIBLE JOB!

Leigh Powell Hines said...

That is gorgeous. I love it. Amazing price. So you just repainted the cabinets instead of refacing.

I like what you did with your cat's photos. Job well done.

Kim @ Everything Etsy said...

It looks beautiful! :)


Shannon Dingle said...

So stinkin' beautiful! I have to wrap up some other projects first, but old kitchen o' mine, here I come!

You've inspired me. Thank you.

Devon said...

Oh my what a total difference,,and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new look..what a awesome job you did and for so should be very proud of yourself..

Anonymous said...

Aunt Janet it came out sooooo nice!! I love it!!! Good job!!!

Love Jessie!!

Anonymous said...

This is such a wonderful transformation of your kitchen! I'm in awe and so jealous of anyone that paints their cabinets.. I have a husband who will have nothing but wood and I'm truly sick of looking at wood cabinets. Paint is a much cheerier look in a kitchen.

Di said...

wow! just beautiful, so fresh and bright. I love the style of those corbels too!
What kind of paint/primer did u use for your cabinets?

Marie said...

Great work Janet. I can't believe you did all this yourself. Very, very nice. Thanks for sharing.

Hugs - Marie

Tania @ Carnoustie Lane said...

Great job! Your hard work paid off and it is so budget friendly! Congratulations and enjoy your 'new' kitchen!

Tania @

this is an amazing AFTER....fabulous! serious farmhouse love!

the beadboard and curvy corbels are wonderful!

Hokie Grandma said...

Just found your blog and love it:) I had to share this makeover with my daughter who just bought their first home. I live just down the road from you - in Barboursville just north of Charlottesville. I'd love to know the name of the fabric store you bought those beautiful pieces of fabric from.

Bagladee said...

Oh my goodness its just so beautiful. You did such a fabulous job and I think it has more feeling to it than if you had brought someone in to do it for you.
Fancy popping over the pond and restyling mine ;)
Great job. Big pat on the back.

jennasaurus said...

Those photos look like something out of a magazine... so lovely!

Maria Killam said...

Your kitchen is fabulous! I would consider a quartz countertop in a gray shade to coordinat with your walls. Or white with a yellow glass backsplash to coordinate with the yellow accents.

SheilaG @ Plum Doodles said...

Just found you- your kitchen is beautiful!

Mallory said...

Great job!! You kinda make me wish I did bead board instead of tile in my kitchen! Love it! Oh well, maybe the next house! I'm a new follower :)

Ashley said...

I'm swooning! Love at first sight! You did so wonderful and barley spent anything!

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

Amazing. I love it. Thanks for letting me know about your kitchen. We have some similarities in our kitchens with the white paint (although I used gray on the lower cabinets) and beadboard backsplash. I love your yellow paint on the inside of the open cabinets. I've been trying to decide what to do with mine to finish them off, but think I'll go for something patterned. I do love the yellow though. Hard to decide. Thanks for the kitchen tour.

Jennifer Juniper said...

It turned out even better than I imagined!!! I've been on pins and needles waiting to see and it is truly fantastic :) So proud of you!

Unknown said...

I love what you did with your kitchen! I am in the middle of a kitchen reno too. You have inspired me :)

The LadyBugs Garden said...

All I can say is OMG this kitchen is so beautiful Janet. I love all the light color cabinets and the bead board is just the right touch.
This kitchen will be calling you to cook everyday in her! OH and no Micowave I'm impressed!

Lydia Armstrong said...

Oh my God, this looks amazing!! So light and open! When I started to scroll down and just saw the first pic, I was like, uhh this looks exactly like the old kitchen... then I saw it was the "before" pic. Duh.

Julie said...

love it!!! I keep seeing so many white kitchens...maybe in a few more years, I have almond glazed custom cabinetry now!

Natasha in Oz said...

You have done a wonderful job-congratulations on achieving your dream kitchen. Enjoy it!

Best wishes,

Kathie said...

Nicely done! Everything is so fresh and white, I love it. We've been without a microwave for almost 6 years and I don't miss it at all. Just one more thing to keep clean.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

This is a WOW for sure. I love the bright white and yellow. This really makes me want to paint my kitchen. I have brought home some samples and just trying to decide what color. It has been green long enough. Going neutral. I hope you will add a link back to my party! Thanks for joining.

Unknown said...

I can't begin to tell you how much I love the corbels and the sink skirt! My 2 fav items! I am bouncing back and forth between beadbear and board & baten for my kitchen. I wonder if I can do both...hmmm...LOL! You are very inspiring!
Thanks for sharing!

Bethany said...

I came over here from Tea Rose Home. I have no words for this. Other than "I want your kitchen."

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

Let me join the chorus and sing, gorgeous! What a transformation and on such a small budget. You're amazing girl! Just found your lovely blog via Spring Fling party. I'm your newest follower and would be delighted to have you follow me back!

PS: I'm here from Get Your Craft on.

Carey's Farmhouse Kitchen said...

I have a very dark kitchen so you've inspired me. I would love white cabinets. Mine are more of a cherry finish. I love the little details underneath the cabinet and I like the yellow accents. With the island and shelf the black really anchors the room too.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

You should be proud of your kitchen redo. I love how you used yellow with grey. But the most clever thing I saw was how you put a magnetic towel holder on your refrig. I think I'll do the same to mine.

A Whole Lotta Magic said...

Looks beautiful, Janet!

I think I have kitchen envy, lol!

Sue @ Beach Bungalow

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

Phenomenal change!! It's gorgeous! What is the name of the wall color?

ℳartina @ Northern Nesting said...

GORGEOUS!!! I LOVE absolutely everything about it and I love all the little finishing details you added. I love white cabinets in a kitchen, mine are white to and I love them. I am actually going to paint my island black like yours and the hubby is going to add beadboard for me. GREAT JOB, Martina

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

Love it! So nice and bright. It looks like a different kitchen. I know it must have been a TON of work, but now you get to enjoy it for years and years. Fabulous job!

Connie said...

Take a bow! You've pulled of a transformation. It's wonderful.

Honey at 2805 said...

Itchin' Stitchin' said...

Janet this is beautiful - What a wonderful way to show people how they can transform a room.

BJ said...

Absolutely fabulous kitchen. I love white kitchens and I love what you did with yours. Love the beadboard, the black painted island, and the corbels. Awesome job.

Jennifer said...

Wow! What a dramatic difference! I am also painting my maple cabinets white. I removed all the dishes, shelves and doors so far. It took me a whole day to do that! Be honest, how difficult is it? No turning back now so I can handle it! LOL! You did a great job and made me excited to get mine finished. Found you over at Shabby Chic Cottage.

Unknown said...

Janet, just found your blog from the shabby chic cottage, Love your kitchen and I know how you feel.. I'm your newest follower, love your blog and look forward to getting to know you. come visit my blog when you have a min.

Jodi said...

It's beautiful, I love all the detail! I just finished painting my kitchen and cabinets, it's alot of work, but so worth it. I love the corbels, I really wanted to do that to mine, but didn't get it done.

Great Job!

This is terrific! I love what you have done with the beadboard and the corbels, also the white and the yellow contrast(what type of paint did you use?... going back to reread the details now). Beautiful.

Anonymous said...

Hi Janet-Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I started to leave a comment yesterday but got sidetracked by certain little ones - for some reason they think I should help them with their school projects! : ) Just wanted to let you know that I love, love, love your kitchen. So beautiful. One of my all time favorites! The colors are so fresh and pretty. Your hard work really paid off!

Line said...

Great job! You did what (& more than that!) I fear to do!
A question though: apparently, you didn't paint the countertop nor the top of the island, why?
Have a lovely day!

Janet Metzger, Artist said...

**Reply to Line's question about why I did not paint my countertops.
My countertops are a cream speckled formica and they are in perfect shape. My ultimate goal is replace them with something either grey or black. I haven't decided what kind of counter I want yet...still shopping. Also I am NOT a fan of painting kitchen counters. Most products are very messy and quite Toxic (read the warnings on the labels...good grief!)
So for now the formica stays...and I can live with that ;-)
Thanks for your question Line!

Your kitchen only confirms how much I want to paint our cabinets. Love the beadboard backsplash and yellow! It's light, bright and beautiful! Nice work!

I just found your blog! Another wonderful inspirational blog! Wow, I feel like someday I will hopefully have time to be as crafty and awesome as you! Your new kitchen is my dream kitchen! I love everything about it! :) I really must start making myself be artsy and crafty. It runs in my family but I can't seem to focus my artistic energy! :) oh well. I guess I will just have to keep looking to such as you for inspiration and ideas. Maybe when these cute babies of mine will stop falling asleep in my lap I will.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

Hi...this is incredible. I found you at Favorite Paint Colors...she just posted your kitchen. About half way through the post my jaw was dropping to the floor. You should be so proud of yourself! I'm getting ready to start a small kitchen reno. I would love to do the corbels like yours but I don't think I can make it work with my cabinets. You were also very lucky to have concealed hinges. Mine are exposed and I just don't know what to do with them. I'm following you and will be back to check out more of your blog. Nice to meet you ~ Ann

THIS IS FABULOUS! I am really loving the pops of yellow.

Would you like to come and do a special guest post about this over at Remodelaholic? I would love to have you, if you are interested let me know, and I will give you the details!


Anonymous said...

You did a wonderful job! Everything looks fantastic. I have the same cabinets and for several years have been doing other projects and procrastinating painting my kitchen cabinets (and white is my top choice). I too have white appliances and think it is tricky to get cabinets that look white and not dirty next to the white appliances. Can you share what the cabinet paint color was. Any tips on painting? I have read all the blogs, DIY sites etc.... But I LOVE your idea of having the beadboard on the kickplate as well. I will be doing that when I get around to it.

Every Day Blessings said...

Your kitchen is darling! I keep hoping to get up the nerve to do the same thing. Thanks for all the great inspiration, I Love it!

This is such an amazing kitchen make over. All of the things added such a cozy look. I love the hand painted place mat on your counter. Very homey touch.

total transformation for such a small price. And you had Whisper for 21 years? I can only dream I can have my Emily that long!

What an incredible job you've done. Your home possesses such style and elegance while still be comfortable and liveable. Thank you for sharing these beautiful images!

Karen said...

Saw your kitchen on hometalk and absolutely love it! May I ask, are the appliances almond or bisque? I have an almond stove and refrigerator and a bisque dishwasher and I started painting my oak kitchen cabinets with old white chalk paint. The old white does not look good with the almond fridge. What color white did you use on your cabinets? How has the paint held up almost a year later?

Went to the home page of your blog and now see that you stock Annie Sloan Chalk Paint! Would you recommend I continue with the chalk paint for the kitchen cabinets? What color(s) would look good with the almond appliances? Or should I switch to a latex paint? Thanks so much.

Lynsay said...

I just happened upon your remodel on Remodelholic and I am so glad I did! I have a really hard time finding kitchen inspiration if the kitchen design & layout doesn't match my own, but I really think I could draw from your ideas! We inherited handmade custom oak cabinets in our home and I've always wanted white but I feel guilty when I think about covering up that beautiful wood and my husband feels dreadful because he knows I'm terrible at painting and he would be recruited. I think I can! I think I can! I think I can!

Gmama Jane said...

I don't really know how I found you blog but I think it was from Pinterest and aprons!! Go figure! But you have truly inspired me to remodel my kitchen. Your kitchen is just like mine and this is the look I've wanted for the last 2-3 yrs. My husband kept thinking we couldn't paint our wood cabinets but after showing him yours and some others he's convinced the cabinets CAN be painted. Your kitchen is lovely. Have you made any updates over the last year?
