Blog - Our Before And After Craigslist Kitchen

Posted by Sherrie Fairbanks on

This is our before pictures (#1 & #2) and the after (#3, #4, #5) of our little corner kitchen which is open to our living room and eating area.  These before pics show our cheaply made cabinets, that avocado green sink and matching laminated counter top (from the 70's) wallpaper wallboard that served as backsplash, and an island that was moveable with a fan above.

When we added onto our cottage back in 1996-1997 we went with gorgeous Kraftmaid rustic hickory cabinets for the bathrooms.  But how extremely lucky were we to find more matching Kraftmaid hickory all wood kitchen cabinets on craigslist for awesome price to re-do our kitchen!!. 

We wanted to use the same plumbing and electrical layout, so to the get maximum cabinet usage we went with a new u-shaped long peninsula design!! 

We used beadboard (love anything beadboard) as our backsplash (I painted 3 coats of Sherwin Williams on them super easy to clean. Added the 2 slabs of granite countertops, new deep stylish Kohler stainless steel sink!!  Love our white appliances in here as it helps so much with reflecting the light in our small corner kitchen.
