Farmhouse Kitchen Reveal

The Reveal of our Farmhouse Kitchen

Hip-Hip-hooray! It’s week 6 of the One Room Challenge, and we can now finally take a breather. I am so excited not only to share my kitchen reveal with you all, but to see all the other reveals this week as well. Be sure to visit ย all the link ups to Week 6 where most of us will be sharing our room reveals. Where did six weeks go? Honestly, its like we were just starting…and here we are at the reveal. It now just feels like the perfect Farmhouse Kitchen for our family.


Let me take you back to each week so you can see the progress of our kitchen.

Week ONE: before and inspiration

What we didn’t accomplish

DIY Marble Top Bistro Cart

What a list! I mean so much has happened in here that the kitchen space, really looks and feels like a totally new home. I of course kept my Chalkboard Wall, which we did last summer. It kind of was the makeover that pointed me in this direction for more of a french farmhouse kitchen. Before the kitchen felt a little more Americano Farmhouse. Though I loved parts of that too, I am always just drawn to that Parisian feel. So here we are and I am basically there. The only last makeover piece would be the Bistro Cart. I shared on the above Design Board that gorgeous Bistro table I had found online. Of course the price tag was wayyy out of our reach, but I thought I would try to make my own version with a little DIY help. Unfortunately, it was a failed DIY and so we just painted our existing sewing machine table, put the marble we had purchased on top (for now) we will eventually update once I find the right vintage table, or we may try another DIY method. I’ll update you all on that when that happens.

Well that’s about it! Unless I convince the hubby to officially re-tile our kitchen, I think that will be all the updating that happens in here for a long time. I hope I am just sharing how much DIY can make a difference in a home. You don’t need a full custom kitchen or expensive tile or brand new furniture to make a home look beautiful. Everything was done on a major budget from the hand-me-down cabinets (free) the Vintage find table ($160), some whole sale marble ($175), Paint, a few accessories, and of course a new light fixture (which I am blessed to have sponsored by the fabulous Lampsplus). By creating a DIY built in bench (though we had to pay for the wood) it was for sure a way to save. Instead of purchasing, 4 or 6 chairs keeping just the two new ones and the bench helped keep the budget down. The shiplap walls add dimension and character and cost us less than $40!

Now for the photos. Let me know if you have any questions in the comments about the makeover I’d love to share!

I decided to take pictures with the table with out the drop leaf up and with the table up and set.

    1. Thank you so much Amanda! You have been so sweet leaving me comments the entire ORC process. Can’t wait to stop over and see your room!

    1. Wow thank you so much Lisa! Thats like the nicest comment. The black is actually chalkboard paint. I never use it to draw on, but it can be if I changed my mind ; )

  1. Love it! Everything looks wonderful. From the chalkboard wall (they do so much for a space, don’t you think?), that wonderful table, to the gorgeous chandelier! It’s all perfect. Great job! Thank you for the inspiration. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Ashley! : ) Sometimes it’s the simple touches! That corner felt so blah, so it needed a little something, and I love how it also fills it with purpose.

  2. This is gorgeous Deb!! I Love everything! Especially the light fixture and those faux marble shelves. Beautiful job!

    1. Thank you so much Roxanne! Can’t wait to stop on by your page now and see your reveal!

  4. I love all of your choices. It is so fresh and inviting. I like how you used what you had and improved it. Great job. I also love the grasscloth in the dining room. It looks so pretty with your kitchen.

    1. Thank you Julie! Yep, always working on a tight budget, but trying to make everything still look pretty.

    1. Thank you Sara, that’s such a huge compliment coming from you. Your room turned out so fabulous!

  5. You truly achieved a very beautiful farmhouse kitchen dear! I love how you used black and white and all the gorgeous farmhouse details in your space! Congrats and Cheers to another room done!

  6. It’s gorgeous! You knocked it out of the park with this makeover my friend. So many beautiful touches, I especially love the chandelier and kitchen chairs. Great job on an amazing makeover ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Wow, your kitchen looks absolutely astonishing! The color scheme makes the whole room look clean, neat, and fresh, and the accents and decor you’ve chosen really make the room unique! This whole look is just amazing! Very nicely done! Thanks so much for posting!

    1. Thank you Morgan! that means so much! Yes, a small room needed a big punch of character and color especially with the contrasting black and white. We are loving it! Thanks you again!

  11. Are the counter tops sealed with the same Behr Wet Look sealer from your earlier post? The color is perfect and I’ve been looking for the right sealer for when I do my counters. Has it held up reasonably well? Thanks!

    1. Hi, yes same sealer! They held up really well. I do have to say that the concrete counters are quick to get oil stains. That’s probably the only complaint I have about them though. I love them and I love how easy, cheap, and beautiful they are!

      1. Thanks so much for your quick reply! The color of your counters are perfect and I wanted to be sure of the sealer before I do my counters this weekend. This was so helpful.

        1. Yay so glad this was able to help you out. Love to see how they turn out…send me a photo to my email if you’d like!
