Fantabulosity Kitchen Studio Renovation “Before” Look: It’s a peek at JUST the beginning of our new white, farmhouse style kitchen as our new “home” for our cooking videos!
Fantabulosity Studio Renovation + “Before” Look
It’s finally happening. It all started with a friend coming over saying,
Jessica, I don’t understand why you wouldn’t utilize this unfinished space for your blog, and turn it in to a kitchen studio for your quick and easy recipes, and weeknight meal ideas.
He was right!? Why hadn’t I thought of that!? I thought for sure when I mentioned his idea to my husband, he would say “Heck no, that’s going to be a theater room… not a kitchen.”
But to my surprise, his response was, “That’s actually a really good idea, and it would be a great place for you to do a lot of your videos for the blog and YouTube channel.” (Exqueeze me?!) So I hopped on the planning process immediately before he changed his mind.
White Kitchen + KILZ COMPLETE COAT Paint
I am ECSTATIC to be working with KILZ® COMPLETE COAT™ Paint on the Fantabulosity studio. When we started chatting about the plans of the space, I just knew their line of KILZ COMPLETE COAT Paint & Primer in One would be a perfect fit.
I’m far from a professional painter, so I knew I wanted to work with something that would be easy to use! KILZ COMPLETE COAT Paint is the brand for DIYers who believe in starting their projects right. Being married to a home builder, using the right products to get the Perfect Finish is a MUST. He is meticulous when it comes to quality and a perfect look when it comes to a home. For the studio kitchen, we chose to use the KILZ COMPLETE COAT PAINT, (interior and exterior paint in one) in semi-gloss “PRE TINTED WHITE”.
Fantabulosity Studio Inspiration
These days, it’s MUCH easier to plan and gather design ideas thanks to Pinterest. When I searched for kitchens to use as examples to show my husband and contractors, these two were by FAR my favorite!!!
This first one is from Elizabeth Roberts Architecture and Design, and I absolutely LOVE the white subway tile backsplash, white/gray countertops and floating shelves.
This second image has me all “heart eyes,” over here with just about every stinking detail! The white cabinets, the hardware, and the kitchen accessories are absolutely stunning. This kitchen inspiration is from Monika Hibbs, and I’m smitten with her entire home and blog.
But for now, this is where we must begin! It’s like a blank slate and I’m ready to tackle this baby!
Thank you SO much KILZ!
I cannot thank the KILZ Brand enough for working with us on this project. It’s helping us feel so much more comfortable about the entire process, starting off with an incredible brand like them.
KILZ is the brand for people who see the world not as it is but as it could be. (Those like my husband who can envision so much, by looking at an empty room!) They see past problems, and can see the potential in the room, house, and any home renovation project.
Sneak Peek Videos
To give you a better idea of the “before,” I shot a quick video from our shopping trip at Walmart which is our first step towards the white kitchen, and another video tour of the very beginning stages of our Studio Kitchen! I can’t wait to show you the finished product with this beautiful white paint on the walls!
Eeeek… it’s finally happening! It was quite possibly the most exciting trip to Walmart I’ve ever had! I loaded the two littles up in the car and we were on a mission for white PAINT! (Then of course a trip to window shop the toy isle for good behavior while mommy snagged the supplies.)
The KILZ COMPLETE COAT Paint was super easy to find in the paint isle, and I LOADED my cart up! I MAY have had a few people looking at me like I was crazy, while filming myself, talking about paint
Quick “Before” Tour…
I can’t wait to keep you all posted through the entire process!!
