Swingin' Seventies Kitchen Reno, finale

I know it's been a while, but things like the holidays happened, and it took me a while to get the photos.  We still need a dining room table solution and decor for the back wall, but it's pretty close!

Here's how it turned out...

And here are a few before and afters...Harvest Gold no more! SUCH a difference...

The cabinets came out really well - I wish we had been able to spray them, but adding some Floetrol and brushing them worked just fine.  The removal of all the brass hinge-work and hardware really helped, too!

The countertops were the splurge - but they add so much color and pattern to a mostly white/neutral kitchen scheme.

The dining room still needs some furniture, but we added drapes - I LOVE the fabric.  It's warm and fun and looks amazing from every angle.  My brother and I made a message board for the space between the curtains and the cabinets.  We took old recipes of our Nana's and color copied them, then added a frame and some cork board.  The whole thing was quick and easy.

(yes, that is a ticket to 'Deer Camp, the Musical". Amazing.)

Here's the original inspiration post...I think we did pretty well!


Here is the whole project:
