Now that the busiest part of our year is over (see you next year, trade shows!), I can dive back into Before & Afters! I’ve been swamped with travel and work lately so it’s been exciting to get back into submission emails and check out the great makeovers you guys have sent and to hear about the exciting summer renovations some of you have planned. Next week I’ll have a full set of makeovers to share, but for today I wanted to focus on this little kitchen nook re-do. Mainly because it’s a great example of how changing just a small part of a space can have a huge impact on the overall room.
Rebekah Gough (who has shared some great projects with us before) ripped out her current rental home’s “ugly 90’s-era built in desk” and replaced it with a beautiful blue hutch. While it sounds simple, she and her husband did all of the manual labor themselves and chronicled the process on her blog, here. We’ve all dealt with those generic wooden cabinets that most rentals have (mine are a blonde color and I loathe them) so it’s great to see how these can be updated for something that feels colorful and fun, but neat and streamlined at the same time. I think the combination of this corner makeover with the changing of the dining room chairs makes such a big impact on the overall kitchen. A big virtual high five to Rebekah and her husband for this great redo. xo, grace
