I love having a corner window.  I’m pretty sure this shelf is made for Tulips.
Fruits and Passion’s Cucina Duo Lime Zest and Cypress – Love it!
And I just refill the soap and lotion and keep the super CUTE dispensers.
Honey Nut Cheerios – Kix: Kid Tested Mother Approved – Quick Oats Oatmeal
Our cereal bowls are in the cabinet directly above our breakfast canisters.
I really like the granite I chose…after narrowing it down to white granites.
White River Granite looks GREAT.  It has a lot of movement which I like a whole lot.
Keurig: cup of tea for me and a cup of coffee for Stud…
every morning!  I like the K-Cup Carousel LOTS, too!
Something about Subway Tile…it calms me!


The Cabinet We Built from Scratch!
Perfect home for our microwave, pull out
covered trash can, cake plates, cookbooks and chargers!
All new lighting, too.
Do you remember what it looked like on the day I moved in!?!?
My kitchen is definitely peaceful now!

    gorgeous kitchen! Could you tell me if the material you used to trim the cabinets has held up? I was told I couldn’t use a plywood because it could separate and the edges would look unfinished …but yours look fantastic!

  2. Tina says:

    sorry Aimie…I meant trim. :o)

  3. Tina says:

    Hi Aimie,
    I need to add the trip around my cabinet doors too…to give them some character. How did you do that? What did you use? Also, what kind of paint did you use for the cupboard doors?

  4. Suzanne says:

    Hi Aimee! Your kitchen is gorgeous! We are going through the exact kitchen facelift. Can you elaborate on the brand and style of hinges you used to replace the old ones? We have reached a roadblock and are finding that after several attempts at different brands/styles the cabinet doors are not sitting flush. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, Suzanne

  5. Steve @ CountertopsHQ says:

    Absolutely amazing job on your remodel Amy. Your before and after picture is stunning. The cabinets, countertops, floors you chose wisely! Congrats on the beautiful kitchen.

  6. Val says:

    Love it! Did you paint the inside of the cabinets?

    • Thanks Val! I didn’t — the inside was in mint condition and I feared paint would end up getting chipped and scratched. XO, Aimee
