Fan-tastic: Kitchen Makeover

September 1, 2010

Hi all, how’s your week ?  Excited for the long weekend ?  I certainly am.  Have you had a chance to link up your space to the Where Do You Blog? party yet ?  Over 200 blogging corners to browse, and all so fascinating!  There’s still time before the end of the day to add your unique space where you blog too. 

Second, the winners of the Gussy Giveaway from last week are lucky #73 Jen from Coastal Lust and #340 Aimee from Life As An Oakes.  Congratulations Jen and Aimee!

Finally, today as part of the Fantastic Feature series, I bring you an incredible DIY kitchen makeover from Modern Jane.   Jane enlisted the help of her brother and her dad to transform her dated kitchen with plywood, pine, and plenty of Zinsser primer.  She even pieced together her new countertop with pine stair treads !

Incredible ! 

How gorgeous is all that white cabinetry that her brother built?  Love that chandy too!  You can check out the part one of Jane’s remodel here, and the end of her story in this reveal post

Bravo Jane, what a beautiful result !  Hop on over to Jane’s blog to tell her what an amazing job she did with a little vision and a lot of elbow grease !
