KITCHEN REDO-OAK TO BLACK DISTRESSED






Our kitchen redo has been a major on going project and we have finally finished everything except painting the walls so I decided to do some posting.  As you can see we started with oak cabinets and formica counter tops and backsplash.  We painted the cabinets black and then distressed them slightly and added 3 inch bead board to a few areas.  We used travertine for the backsplash and then put under cabinet lighting in.  We also tore out the fluorescent ceiling lights and put in can lights. We replaced all of our appliances with stainless steel.  It has totally changed the look of the kitchen and I love it.  It was worth all the work, even though there were times when I was painting the cabinets, I was questioning my sanity.
