Hello all ... after saving up for several years, we were able to give our mom a new kitchen remodel she never knew she wanted. Tell us what you think? Yes the runners are Ikea, but the chandelier is a Schonbeck ;) you only live once (says mom who picked it out haha).

Stellar! I had the same cabinets in my kitchen and glad they are gone!
You even managed to get rid of the soffit! Wow!!
You are an amazing daughter to do this for your mom! She is going to love it! I bet she is in tears with happiness!
Congratulations on a job well done!!

I have to wonder if we are neighbors - I even had the same style windows - I ended up painting the frame as I had too many wood varieties - Oak floor, cherry cabinets, etc.

Wow thanks everyone, so glad to have GW approval from all you kitchen experts.

Kay515, those are simply Lowe's 3x6 subway tiles. We weren't sure if it would work at first, but glad we kept it simple in the end.

BTW we are boys in our 20's and 30's for those that keep referring to us as daughters. Boys can do GW too :)

RE: Our Bright New Kitchen

You boys are very thoughtful and wonderful.

I did not assume the gift is from daughter(s), since our coworker and his brother just gave their parents a new bathroom.
