Kitchen: Final Photos

Please indulge me in this post. As you know, our kitchen has been our labor of love these past few weeks. In previous posts you've read about our adventures with a DIY backsplash, and followed along as we installed our own Edison-style light fixtures. We've been busy bees! In this post I just wanted to post a few more final photos of the end results as well of some of the befores so you can see the difference. Enjoy!

 We still have a bit more that we'd like to do eventually - decor, cabinet pulls, etc. so make sure to check back for more photos.

UPDATE: We finally installed new pulls on the cabinets - what do you think?!

We're really happy with them!! Thanks for looking!

I'm linking up to these great parties:
