When we bought our "empty nest" home last August, we knew the kitchen makeover would be a big renovation job. I loved the eat-in kitchen layout, but that's where the love ended. The kitchen was painted a combination of hunter green and pumpkin orange. There was a ceiling fan in the corner of the room (because everyone wants dust blowing on their food). The cabinets had been "refinished" with a single coat of brown stain (by what I assume to be a three year old by the looks of them) and had never been sealed. The cabinet storage was minimal. The appliances were ancient, but working. The kitchen sink was a shallow six inches deep. I had huge plans for the renovation. Home Depot loves us.
Java Gel Stain and General Finishes Polyacrylic Top Coat. They are the same products I used when I renovated the guest bathroom. It's a really dark brown, almost black, and looks incredibly clean and sharp. We left space in the corner for our big freezer.
HERE. My incredible husband also replaced the kitchen sink for me. The new one is two inches deeper, because what gal doesn't want an extra two inches? We also selected a new faucet set for the new sink.
I put a new, lighter area rug under the dining table and chairs to brighten up the room too!
