Kitchen Mini-Makeover: The Reveal!!

Small Changes, Big Impact Kitchen Mini-Makeover

This kitchen mini-makeover has been much needed, I just didn't realize how much it needed to be done, until it was finished. We haven't updated anything in our kitchen since we moved in almost 5 years ago (unless you count removing the upper cabinet doors on purpose, and a couple of the lower doors on accident, oops!) Everything is pretty builder basic; a row of square white tiles for the backsplash, and the ever popular boob light above the sink.

I was so excited when Misty from Uncommon Supply Company in Mission, Kansas contacted me about partnering with her company on a tile project. Misty has been awesome to work with, from ordering tile samples, to selecting the tile, to determining the which of the multiple shades of tan grout were going to look best, she has been great. If you live in, or around, the Kansas City area I highly recommend contacting them for your tiling, flooring or countertop needs.

Now, onto the before shots of our kitchen, not horrible, but not anything exciting either.

And, now for the after! I just can't get over what a difference a little tile, a new light and new curtain can make.

For the backsplash we went with Daltile Stone Radiance, in the Morning Sun/Tortoise/Mushroom Blend. I love that it has a mix of glass. stone and marble, it brings nice texture and color to the space. I also liked that it is different from all the shiny glass backsplashes you see everywhere.

My search for the pendant light took a little while. I wanted something industrial looking, not too small, and not super expensive. I found this warehouse pendant at Home Depot, it was exactly what I was looking for, and for around $30, the price was perfect too.

What's a good makeover post without a little side-by-side before and after? I just can't get over how a couple of little changes made such a huge difference in our kitchen.
