Before and After Project No. 6:

Kristin at My Uncommon Slice of Surburbia kept a journal for years filled with pictures of the kitchens she loved.  She especially loved the kitchen in the gorgeous beach house in the movie, Something Gotta Give.  (You can tour the beach house in the movie here: Something Gotta Give Movie House Tour)

I immediately knew I’d found a kindred spirit when I was reading about Kristin’s kitchen renovation because she loves white kitchens, especially a cottage kitchen.   The transformation of her kitchen was done on a budget, even down to finding all her appliances on Craig’s list and getting her lighting at 75% off.  Impressive!

Painting Stained Kitchen Cabinets:

After:  This kitchen makeover  is nothing short of amazing!   One of the biggest changes Kristin made was by painting her stained cabinetry.

  13. Amazing transformation.

    I was a little miffed when I found out that the kitchen from “Something’s Gotta Give” was merely a constructed set. πŸ™ Oh well … it was a pretty set and still makes me drool whenever I see it.

    • Dayle, I know whatcha mean…always a bit disappointing to find out some of our fave movie houses are sets. But the good thing is we can still use them for inspiration. The kitchen in Something’s Gotta Give has been the “example” for many a kitchen renovation. πŸ™‚

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