Remember what it looked like before?
I love how it looks with the white walls and black cabinets. I have to give huge kudos to Stephane who built all the cabinets himself. The doors were all made by cutting out the panels of the old solid wood doors he removed from the house. Walking through the house in the beginning was like a maze! You opened one door only to encounter another... Quite the opposite of open concept! The result is cupboards that looks as if they've been there for a hundred years. (In a good way!)
The chandelier offers a a bit of a traditional touch but, being white, allows it to feels fresh and modern. The large rectangular sink and restaurant style faucet are pretty cool too! The huge island with solid birch countertop is both beautiful and useful, providing lots of counter space and storage.
I wish so much that we had better pictures to show you so that you could see the whole transformation. Believe me.. it was u.g.l.y.... sorry Steph! :) Don't you agree that his hard work has paid off?
