This is my kitchen renovation that I designed and my husband and I built. I love my kitchen renovation!
Finally done! Pouring concrete counter tops next.
Finished rustic bar
Finished cabinet front
My little guy always has to get in the picture! I love my Hobby Lobby drawer pulls and knobs!
I found these wonderful bamboo drawer inserts at Ikea. They were a perfect fit. Love them!
I purchased nice straight 3" boards to build my cabinet drawers. I then used the rustic cypress for the drawer front. I payed a little extra for the nicer drawer slides. The absolute hardest part of the drawers was installing the slides! What a pain.
This bar was quite the project. I had a few imperfections but nothing anyone will notice. I used rough cut cypress boards to face the entire cabinet. I stained and distressed the boards to make them look like old barn wood. I will be pouring a concrete counter top and using acid stain to finish.
This was the start of my big rustic bar. This took a lot of planning and photoshopping to get what I wanted. I built the shell with 3/4" sanded unfinished plywood. I used my favorite tool to join the boards. My Kreg Jig!
Beautiful Hobby Lobby knobs
Painted Wall Cabinets
I purchased unfinished kitchen cabinets from Home Depot. I primed and sanded then painted several coats of paint. I wanted to do something a little different with this cabinet. I thought I would build a bread box right into the cabinet. I am going to finish it by adding a door that flips up. Now that I have learned to build my own cabinets, I would never purchase the unfinished cabinets again. I will be building my own cabinets the next time around.
This is the hood range that I finally finished. Butter Cup the cow just topped it off perfectly!
My cute window frames. I photoshopped the look I wanted, then printed out a full size to scale image for a template. I then cut all my pieces out of rough cut cypress. I distressed the boards to make them look like old barn wood.
My Photoshop design of my kitchen bar.
I took photos of my kitchen and then photoshopped over top of them to get the look that I wanted.
