BEFORE AND AFTER: MAGNOLIA KITCHEN FACELIFT

once again.....the before shots are MIA!!!.......but, to give you the background, these homeowners experienced a HORRIBLE leak in their kitchen and had to replace the floors. UGH!
they felt overwhelmed and figured they may as well give the poor kitchen a facelift.... this is where i came in!

BEFORE:
kitchen cabinets were natural maple wood color, no tile backsplash, dark granite countertops, dated pendants, and no eat-in area.

AFTER: finishing touches going in.....

the new eating area!!
 before, there was a built in desk area that took up way too much space. we designed this space saving built-in corner banquette to maximize the largest dining table possible. 


we had the bench seat fabric laminated for easy clean up!

backsplash tile up to ceiling. love this effect.

    1. Schumacher fabric! And drawing a blank on the paint color. But we matched it to the tile color for a cohesive seem less look.

    2. Hi Lucy! I am really interested in this table and went to the Phillips Scott website. Is this table available for purchase to the general public or do you have to have a furniture company or be a dealer to purchase? I am having trouble figuring out if it's available to be purchased by someone from the general public. Thanks!

  6. Wow Lucy that is a great change! I really like it. I am looking for some help with interior design in Utah. My friend says she knows someone that can I help. I just hope it turns out as nice as yours did.

  7. Great looking rooms! I've been browsing the internet looking for inspiration to start my own interior design project. Im going to start with repainting the rooms and then possibly getting some new oriental rugs and antique furniture. I really like the color of your walls, where did you get your paint from?

    1. Banquettes should be about 17-18" high and 18" deep with a 3" cushion on top-good luck!

  21. You mention that you had the fabric laminated. . . can you do this to all fabrics? Did you have this done by a "professional" or is it something that I could DIY? I am so ready for a banquette in our cupola area. So needed! Yours is perfect inspiration.

  28. Design is a way of life, a point of view. It involves the whole complex of visual communications: talent, creative ability, manual skill, and technical knowledge. Aesthetics and economics, technology and psychology are intrinsically related to the process. Congrats on your blog! Tom from Parrot Print Canvas
