LIGHT, BRIGHT & JUST RIGHT
Aside from the electrical and plumbing, Erin and Ken DIYed every inch of their once brown and dated kitchen, this photo. They added character to the space with a planked ceiling, new white cabinetry, subway tile, and marble counters that contrast with charcoal-painted windows and bronze hardware. “One of my favorite moments of the overhaul is the slatted sink doors we retrofitted retrofitted from the old kitchen and painted to match the new cabinetry,” Erin says. (The couple reused the remaining original cabinets in the upper-level rental unit.)
CLEAN TARNISHED BRASS HARDWARE WITH A METAL POLISH (ERIN USES BRASSO). BEHR PAINT IN POPPY SEED DEFINES THE WINDOWS.
