You guys!! The kitchen tile project I shared about last week is officially DONE. After four years, my old dingy 1980’s tile is finally gone! All the work was finished on Friday afternoon and I have to say–it’s even better than I imagined it would be. It totally transformed the look of our kitchen and somehow it even feels bigger now. I’m so happy I decided to go with my gut on this one, because this is definitely one of my all-time favorite projects EVER. I have a ton of photos to share, so let’s hop to it. But first, we have to start with a before photo of the kitchen with the old tile:
And here’s how it looks now:
Such a huge change, right?! I can’t get over how much bigger and more open the kitchen feels now. It just feels like a totally different space. So much more character and pizzaz, which is exactly what I wanted.
I was a little nervous about how this white and black tile would look with our cream colored cabinets. I thought the tile might make them look more yellow, but I was pleasantly surprised to see how well everything blends together. This new tile suits the kitchen so well. Plus the black hardware ties in perfectly with the black in the tile! PS: We purchased this tile from a local shop in the area, but I know Home Depot carries a very similar option.
I can’t help but think about all the changes we’ve made to our little fixer upper over the past four years. It was July of 2015 when we moved in and I never would have imagined what a blessing this home would be to our family. It’s been so much fun fixing this place up, making it our own, and just seeing my dreams come to life little by little.This tile kind of presents all of that for me and I’m so grateful. Thank you all for following along on this journey with us!!
Thanks so much for dropping by the blog today!! I’d love to hear what you think of the new tile. And if you have my questions or if there’s anything I didn’t mention let me know!! xo
