Feature Friday!

Shannon at Posh Pieces has introduced me to my new best friend.  I’m talking about this bench, of course.  Her and her husband built this, and I think they should be very proud!

poshLaura at Decor to Adore spotted this chair and thought, “Oh, it’s gorgeous!  I can’t wait to show it off!”  Okay, well maybe not.  Prepare yourself.

decor1 Isn’t she beautiful???  I want to pet it.  And then put it in my car and take it home with me.  And pet it some more.

Finally, I present Janell at Isabella and Max Rooms.  I want everyone to know that this is the moment.  I’ve found my dream designer.  If someone said to me, “You have to choose a home right now to move into and you can’t change a single thing.” I would gladly pack my bags and move right into Janell’s house.

You see this gorgeous kitchen below?  That’s the before picture.  No, I’m not joking.  Scroll down.  I dare you.  isabella1 You hear that?  That’s the sound of my breath being taken away.

You do see it, don’t you?  A butler’s pantry.  The butler’s pantry.  In “my” house.  Swoon-worthy, without a doubt.

What a great kitchen! It was very pretty in the 'before' pictures, but the 'after' pictures are simply gorgeous! I also love that chair - it's amazing what a little love and care can do to an item. And the bench is great, too! Thank you for posting!

That kitchen is YUMMY!

Love it all, but I hate to say it "I think the before kitchen is better." I just think it looks more expensive and richer before, but that is just my opinion.

I'd be happy with either kitchen! Dan would be happy if I just would cook something in any kitchen of any sort. It's been a busy week! Have a great weekend, O!

Oh. A butler's pantry. Be still, my heart.

*gasp* That is stunning! I didn't even know what a butler's pantry was so I googled it - this will be a must have in our next home I'm sure! :)

My daughter and I *borrowed* a house for a wedding shower a few years back. She had a butler's pantry! I wanted to throw the shower in the pantry. My daughter didn't agree. Oh how beautiful!

Blarney said...

Painting those kitchen cabinets took some gutts! No way I'd get away with that move!

Irene said...

Ok, really? That kitchen before photo is crazy! But the after is beautiful!

Dream Mom said...

Wow, a talented group of ladies! Thanks for bringing us such fabulous projects. Love the bench. Love the chair even more. Love that first kitchen (I like traditional decor.). Of course, that means that you and I won't fight over the kitchen which is good:) Both kitchens are pretty though, make no mistake. Can you even imagine a "before" pic like that? Amazing.

P.S. Where do people find chairs like that,lol? I've been looking for one to make over but no such luck!

What gorgeous makeover. It helped that the kitchen was beautiful to begin with, but it's definitely brighter and very chic. I love the gray color on the walls and that they were brave enough to paint those cabinets.
