The Kitchen Reveal


I am so excited to show y'all my new lighter, brighter, country French kitchen. It took me around three days to paint.



I LOVE my new kitchen. The biggest change was the color of course, but we made another change to the breakfast room.
Are you ready??


Beadboard! Don't you love it? I do. I have wanted beadboard for quite a while.
Mr. Savvy finally agreed. Now get comfy. Lots of pictures.


It is kind of hard to get a good picture of my two new favorite cow canvases. I purchased these 
from One Kings Lane on February 11 and finally received them a week ago. 


Well worth the wait though when they were only $15 for the TWO!
If you are not familiar with One Kings Lane check the button out on my sidebar.




















Still want a bull head for my hood. Wisteria, please put yours on sale.














Dash & Albert rug purchased from csn.com with giveaway win.





Close up of my French cow canvases.








The new wall color is Frappe by Benjamin Moore. It is like a French vanilla color. I purchased the paint with the primer in it in flat.
Love this paint. It took two coats to cover the dark green and I still have over a quarter of the gallon left.
 The beadboard paint color is Chantilly Lace by Benjamin Moore in semi gloss. The beadboard was hung at 53 inches high and then the trim on top was added. This room feels so much taller now. We have nine foot ceilings in here.

Those were the only changes made, but what a difference. Now the rooms that are open to each other flow better. I love the sun room being the only green room now on this floor. The kitchen and great room areas look like the same color in some of these shots, but the great room color is darker.

Thanks so much for taking a look. I know some of you loved the green walls and I did too for several
years, but I love this new color more.
I wish you could see it in person. Come on over!
 Have a super week!

KIM

Post edit: I have had a lot of questions concerning the cow canvases. One Kings Lane is a site that gives you daily deals that last a day or so and then they are gone. It is good to sign up and watch for their deals. I have saved a lot of money on a few special items. I don't know if the cow canvases will come up again or not.

I clicked on the button for One King's Lane, but it won't accept my Canadian postal code. Do you know if there is any way to order them and have them shipped to Canada?My sons would be beyond thrilled to have a pair.

  14. Girl, do you ever rest? Everything looks great! I'm glad you kept the red checked drapes cuz they make me smile! I love the beadboard..I used it in the back entry hall and in one of the guest rooms, and wish I had used it more..it adds so much interest! Great job on every little touch..now sit yourself down and take a break!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  43. So happy to see the whole thing. It looks wonderful! I agree with the others. Your kitchen looks much bigger now. Since your kitchen is open to your family room it really looks even better in a similar color. It flows much better. I love everything you've done to it!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Kimmie, your kitchen is gorgeous! I love that soft and subtle color, it's perfect. Love the cow prints in your kitchen and also like your beadboard, it has such a nice look to your breakfast room! Terrific!

  81. That all turned out so wonderful! It's so bizarre to me to see you painted the green, because I just did the exact same thing! I love the beadboard and it does create a very tall feeling to the room. Amazing! The two canvas pieces you waited for from One King's Lane are very cool! You have such a talent for decorating!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Well, well, well, missy! You have been busy! It all looks so beautiful and bright! I love your new canvases and can't get over that you got them for $15! Your kitchen is really all about you and your taste and it looks wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  85. LOVE LOVE your kitchen! I think it's just beautiful and so well done.

    I would love to know the brand of the cow canvases if possible-- perhaps I could find them elsewhere, being that one kings do not have them anymore.

    THANKS SO MUCH FOR POSTING THIS!!

    ReplyDelete
  86. How very bright and beautiful!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE all your farm animal decor. I can't ever get enough of them! I just used the paint with primer in it as well: so nice not having to do so many coats! I like how you have the green inside your china hutch also. I'm thinking about doing that in my kitchen cupboards. So hard making these decisions. LOVE your place!

    ReplyDelete

  92. Your home is lovely, but this is my favorite of all your rooms. I could move right in.

    In our master bedroom and bath, we have bead board at the height yours is...about mid window height. My bedroom valance is checked like yours, the scale being a little smaller. I have three apothecary jars (smaller scale) and I even have the Thyme for Courage box hanging from one of my robe hooks.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Kim-follow you often and am a big fan of what you have done with your lovely house. Love your new kitchen color and the addition of the wood looks fabulous! I noticed you have bamboo shades in your family room and wondered if you can tell me where you bought them? and also do the cords get in the way? We added a sun room on our home and have been looking for blinds for some time and can't seem to find any that I like. Thanks for your help...

  98. Sorry Kim it took me so long to come see your kitchen It turned out amazing... You need to enter a contest.... have a great week

  99. Looks good, Kim! Nice and open and fresh. :-) I have been contemplating stripping off my Frenchy red scroll wallpaper in the kitchen, but that is a project that probably won't get done until the cabinetry is replaced. In other words, not soon.... So I will live vicariously through your new room!

  100. What a reveal, amazing Kim! I adore all the Rooster touches throughout the space and the new canvas items are lovely. The woodwork makes a big difference. I couldn't see how your kitchen and dining area was going to look better(already perfect), but with the new woodwork/trim...FANTASTIC! So inspiring, great job! XOXO ~Liz

  109. It is gorgeous! I'm currently hiding in my bedroom while they are putting the countertop in mine. I have a long way to go before it looks pretty in there. I love your wall color. I'm glad to know that you are happy with the One Kings Lane items. I see the listings daily but I haven't ordered anything yet.

    The beadboard looks perfect. I'm not sure how I feel about ours. It is stained now, but that brought out the knotholes and imperfections...it is a little rustic for my taste, but it may grow on me. I know we can still paint it, but under a bar it would be scuffed so easily. Too soon to tell I think.

    Your kitchen is so elegant, yet comfortable. I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  110. This is SUCH a beautiful kitchen...and so clean. Do you really cook in there? Dumb question asking a Southern Girl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Such a huge makeover...I can not believe that you painted the whole thing. You are the most industrious person I know. I have done that before but now I am just too lazy I think :)
    I really love how fresh and sophisticated it is. The bead-board is fabulous also.

  119. Kim, I must be the 1000th person to tell you how nice your kitchen looks :) The color is so fresh and airy and I love the touch of the bead board. I'll bet you are glad to have this little project behind you.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Kim, Your kitchen looks so fresh and bright with it's new look. I did love the green though, but I know sometimes you get ready for a change. I have a green kitchen and have been thinking of painting it for two years. You're inspiring me to do it this year. See you Wed. for WOW.

  127. Stopping by from BNOTP. Beautiful! I haven't seen the 'before' photo but the after is gorgeous! I know you mentioned that you only changed the wall color and did the beadboard, but I have one question - did you paint your cabinets yourself? I noticed the top cabinets have a glaze. I'm in the middle of painting my cabinets and plan on doing a glaze. Just curious if you did yours and if you did, maybe you could give some pointers. :) Thanks for sharing your beautiful kitchen!

  135. Looks fantastic! I love the little yellow rooster. You definitely have created a french country kitchen. I just finished a mini kitchen redo of my own, I hope you check it out.

  136. I love the new brighter paint colour - it looks so fresh and bright. I can't believe you got all that painted in 3 days. You are one painting machine, is all I can say. Way to go!

  137. Kim, I agree with all of the above comments!!! Everything is just beautiful. I have to tell you my favorite thing is the little basket with the red check liner...it is just darling.

  138. Thanks so much everyone. Y'all have blown me away!
    Kristine, thanks, the basket is a picnic basket that I found for $10 and I just added two checked napkins to it.

  139. I'm not sure if I have the space to list everything I love about your kitchen!You managed to keep it light,yet cozy. I love the red check curtains and the cow canvases.I love seeing through your arches into other beautiful rooms.Also, I'm very curious about the bull's head you mentioned-that is right up my alley.Take care.

  140. Kim love love it!! So fresh and pretty two great changes!!! I actually had to go back and look to see if you painted the cupboards because they look so fresh with this color. I love a french vanilla with white moldings so clean and fresh!!! This is a great example of what a coat of paint will do for a space. Kathysue

  141. Kim, it looks beautiful. Love the beadboard. We had it in our previous home both in our kitchen and in a bath, and when we moved into this house we added it to a downstairs room. It adds a nice finished look to a room. ~ Sarah
