Kitchen Makeover at The Nest on the Hill

We started our kitchen makeover last fall. Last FALL! And we're only 1/2 way there. So it's a little obvious to you by now that I'm obsessed with kitchen transformations.  I can barely hit the link fast enough when I see a submission with the word "kitchen" in it.  So today's post is brought  features...

Meet:  Shannon from The Nest on the Hill.  I've featured her beautiful home befores and afters in the past. Shannon and her husband just finished their kitchen remodel. After working through updating most of their home, they were left with a pretty small budget for the kitchen.  

Here is her kitchen before:

They would have loved to have torn out the floors and cabinets and started from scratch but with a small budget, it wasn't possible.  Instead, they replaced the countertops, added some new lighting and a kitchen island, painted and ventured into the world of subway tile.  After:

The budget?  $2000!  Wow!  

I love the rich new butcher block countertops, the pretty punch of fun in the drum shade chandelier, the pretty ocean blue and the old original charm.  Beautiful job, Shannon.  You two have worked so hard to make your home "yours" and I love watching the progress. 

See more from Shannon at The Nest on the Hill.  :)

What a difference some paint and fun accessories can make. We spent an entire year without a kitchen. It was horrible. It was our first year of marriage and I ate so much take out that year. Good luck with yours.

It's so pretty! I am such a sucker for the classic look of subway tile! They did a great job of making the most of their small space and budget- wow!
