A Kitchen Renovation

Welcome to the 40th Metamorphosis Monday!

A couple of weeks ago, you saw the pic below when I posted Bonnie’s beautiful fall tablescape for a Tablescape Thursday. Well, I couldn’t keep my eyes off her gorgeous kitchen just visible through those pretty arched doors. So, I asked Bonnie if she’d give us a tour of her kitchen…and…Yipee…she said, yes!

Of course, if you are a FAN of BNOTP on Facebook, you knew this already, right? You’ll find the Facebook Fan link posted on my sidebar. I am really enjoying having a Facebook page for BNOTP because it’s giving me a quick way to update you on any neat shopping finds (before they are sold out) or even news regarding MM or TT each week.

Fall Table Setting

Thank-you, Bonnie for welcoming us into your beautiful home!

Here are some “Before” pics that Bonnie took through the windows when they were first looking at their home, prior to buying it.

Wait until you see the “After” waiting just through those doors!

Kitchen Renovation

Wow! Gorgeous! This is my idea of the perfect kitchen!

Kitchen Renovation

I adore a sunny, bright kitchen with white cabinetry…this is positively stunning! Do you see sweet Sophie?

Kitchen Renovation

What an adorable face! Notice her reading literature. Is that a playbill? Perhaps she is getting ready for an outing to the theater?

Sweet Max..

Another sweet furry face…Goldie, was abandoned by neighbors who moved away and Bonnie and her husband took him in. Lucky kitty! Bonnie says Goldie is a fierce hunter!

Love the huge bay window over the sink…

Kitchen Renovation

Aren’t the topiaries just perfect there?! ~~~SIGH~~~ Do you like the color Bonnie painted her kitchen? It’s Sherwin Williams #MC6661 in eggshell.

Kitchen Renovation

I am so drooling over that wonderful pumpkin tureen? Bonnie says it’s a Fitz and Floyd piece she found at Tuesday Morning.

Kitchen Renovation

What a beautiful tiled backsplash and granite! I love the neutral colors…stay neutral, and as you change your decorative pieces seasonally, it will always work beautifully. Plus, you’ll never tire of it. The range hood is fabulous! How about a little close up of that amazing stove?

Kitchen Renovation

The detailing on the hood and the corbels underneath are gorgeous! Bonnie, I am seriously coveting this kitchen! Love the fall wreath and harvest sign! The decorative piece above the stove and the ceramic pieces on the counter are from Horchow.

Kitchen Renovation

A view looking back into the dining room where we saw Bonnie’s beautiful fall tablescape

Kitchen Renovation

Notice the fall display in the cabinet there across the room…let’s go take a closer look…

Kitchen Renovation

Great Halloween/Fall display!

Kitchen Renovation

Refrigerator, what refrigerator?  Love that you don’t even notice it!

I asked Bonnie where she got her design idea for her kitchen. Bonnie said, “I just had it in my mind after looking at years of decorating magazines and books. We also had a wonderful cabinet maker to work with. I would sketch out what I wanted, he would build it, only better. The only change I would make if I had it to do over again, is that I would do mostly drawers.”

The pretty dragonfly chair is part of Bonnie’s breakfast area…we definitely NEED to see that area, too!

Kitchen Renovation

Here’s a “before” pic of Bonnie’s dining room area showing the carpet she “inherited” when she bought her home.

Now look at Bonnie’s beautiful dining room and breakfast area. Love all the fall color from the decorated chandeliers to the wonderful table linens. Can you just imagine Christmas time? Hint, hint!

Kitchen Renovation

Does this give you ideas for decorating your chandeliers?

Kitchen Renovation

A beautiful way to display your pitchers…what a great collection! Bonnie found most of her pitchers at TJ Maxx. I asked her about this fabulous shelf and mirror and she told me the shelf is made of tin ceiling tiles and was purchased from a craftsman on eBay…many years ago. The mirror is from Ballard Designs.

Kitchen Renovation

Bonnie, thank you so much for giving us a tour of your gorgeous kitchen…it is truly a dream kitchen in every way!

Kitchen Renovation

Bonnie shared pics of her “dish” room with me…and it is fabulous! I’ll be posting those for a future Tablescape Thursday…you will not want to miss that post! Everything is so beautifully organized…can’t wait to share it!

  4. The Quintessential Magpie says

    Now, THAT is a fun post, Susan! Loved seeing this. Lots of fun ideas, too, and I love chandeliers that are decorated with festive arrangements. Nice!

    I'm joining you today with my cousin's house in MV. I took these a long time ago. I don't have the befores, but he did an amazing job. He was featured in a couple of magazines, and the befores are in at least one. I don't have a scanner so I couldn't add them. Hope that's okay.

    Now, I feel the need to decorate for fall! We've now got cool weather FINALLY!

  58. Oh WOW! Love that kitchen! How lucky she is! Hope you don't mind me linking in today Susan. It's not really a metamorphosis post – but I'm trying to switch up my blog a bit, so I figure it's a blog morph! LOL! Thanks! 🙂

  92. bonnilynne says

    Hi all,
    I've had a few requests for the paint color we used. It was the hardest thing I had to choose during the remodel. I finally found a color I loved when I toured the Ashland Springs Hotel in Ashland, OR – my contractor tracked down the recipe for the color, so I don't have a name. I'll see if I can find out and I'll post it here if I do.
    Thanks to all for your kind comments! ~Bonnie

  93. That is a kitchen to die for. Absolutely fabulous, and thank you Bonnie for sharing it with us.

  94. Atelier de Charo says

    Qué maravillosa transformación, la cocina quedó estupenda, muy buena decoración.
    La alfombra preciosa.

  95. Loved Bonnie's kitchen. Her tureen made me sad because I found out when I unpacked my fall decor that mine was broken in storage. Now, she has spured me on to find a new one(I had told myself "No you don't need one you never used it other than to decorate with")

    And I can't wiat to see her storage. Is there ever enough storage? No! Thanks for sharing.

  96. Lakeland Jo says

    what a fabulous kitchen. I want it. I love the colours. It must take a lot of effort to keep it looking so beautiful

  97. Karen- The Graphics Fairy says

  112. This is so beautiful and bright, I’ve been planning my own kitchen reno for 5 years now and this is the closest thing I’ve seen to what I want, sink under a bay window, the classy country deco, the color scheme, and L shaped Island! It’s so nice to see it on paper and be able to show my contractor something similar. Thank you so much for sharing. Just gorgeous.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
