Kitchen Renovation Part Two: The Inspiration

I hope everyone had an amazing weekend!
The hubs and I have been having a weekly date night & it's been AMAZING!
This weekend we tried a Spanish Tapas Restaurant here in Oklahoma City - DELISH!
If you're ever in OKC - go try Bolero in Bricktown!

Now on to the kitchen!!
I showed you our UGLY 90's kitchen here.
Pretty bad, huh?
Not much longer!!
Here is what we're hoping it will look like in about a month ...

ok, yeah right.
To go from this ....
to this ....

that would take LOTS of thousands of dollars ... LOTS.
and we're sticking to a strict budget.
$4000 to be exact.
Which IS (absolutely) a lot of money to us. A LOT!
But in the grand scheme of kitchen renovation?
it's just a drop in the bucket.

So what ARE we changing?

Here's our Master To-Do list:
- Granite Countertops (which is coming in about 2/3 of our budget!)
- Paint Cabinets white - DIY (our cabinets are in good shape, just ugly!)
- Replace all hardware (brushed nickel)
- New light fixtures
- New backsplash
- New Tile - DIY
- New undermounted sink
- New Pull out Faucet
- New pantry door 

 Ohhhh I can't wait!!
The guys come on Friday to make the template for our counters!

Stay tuned for LOTS of tutorials and updates!
