It’s been about a month since we shared our kitchen makeover plans with you. Remember our insane plans to try and makeover our kitchen in just one weekend? And we invited you all to watch on Instagram as our kitchen unfolded and so many of you did! THANK YOU SO MUCH!! It was so much fun! You helped us make decisions, gave advice, and encouraged us! Three days later we had this beautiful modern kitchen – which I can’t wait to show you!

Just to remind you… here’s our before picture! We were so lucky that our cabinets were white, and in good shape so we didn’t have to worry about painting them on top of everything else! Then there were a few changes we had already made in the six months we had lived here, including a new light fixture, new white paint on the walls (from my Home Colour Palette!), and new vinyl plank flooring (this post shows you how!).

So what did we tackle in one weekend?

1. Painting countertops
2. Putting up new peel and stick backsplash
3. Changing all of the hardware
4. Putting in new faucet, sink, and soap dispenser
5. Putting in new stovetop
6. Hanging new bars and hooks

Without further ado…. our new Modern Kitchen!

One of the biggest changes we made was the peel and stick tile backsplash. We actually just used a primer on our existing tile, cut these tiles with a small tile cutter, stuck them right on top of the existing tile.

We used the colour “Frost” which added a beautiful soft grey tone to our white and black kitchen! Who knew you could tile an entire kitchen in just one weekend?! I also love the modern square pattern we did with the peel and stick tile!

Another huge project in this space was painting the countertops!

I had so many of you write to me over the weekend saying that you had never heard of these products! The paint is from a kit called Countertop Transformations that you can buy at Home Depot.

You can read about how to apply the paint, and how the countertop paint is holding up a year later too!

If you watched the live videos, then you know that we literally just painted on the countertops! I was AMAZED by how easily the countertop paint went on and how nice it looked.

Changing out the stovetop was a bit of an expense for us, but we thought it was worth the splurge in this case. We’re hoping we will get a lot of years out of it! And did you see what we were using in the before pics?? It really needed an update!

To be honest, I was a bit worried about my choices to use black on black everywhere, but look how beautifully the stovetop blends into the countertops. Gorgeous! Our modern kitchen would not have been complete without it.

Then, since we were replacing the cooktop, it only made sense to replace the sink too!

And then of course, replace the faucet and the soap dispenser! As I was picking these pieces out I really debated whether or not to go with black on black, but in the end I just the visual contrast of black and white kitchen, and I’m so happy with what I chose.

The matte black faucet and soap dispenser both use Touch20 Technology. All you have to do is tap the faucet and it turns on, or put your hand up the dispenser and it senses you and lets out soap. It’s a game changer! It’s amazing!

As soon as the hardware went up, it looked like a completely new room. It’s amazing how much a simple (& inexpensive!) change can make a huge difference.

Last but not least, we added a couple of bars and hooks to help us organize the space, all sticking with my black and white kitchen design. The first bar served as a beautiful under-the-counter utensil holder.

  1. Wow Lindi! You knocked this one outa the park! I really want to try the counter paint in my own kitchen now and I’m loving your idea of hanging spoons and things from that pretty black hardware. The whole thing is beautiful!

  2. This is SO beautiful! I love the counter tops – who knew you could paint on new counters have it look so amazing. And I am definitely on board with your black-on-black choices – just lovely!
    Best,
    Kelly

  3. WOW!!! I watched you on IG and I am still so impressed that you accomplished all of this in one weekend! Everything looks amazing, and I love the black & matte black accents you chose. The contrast with the white cabinets and backsplash is stunning!

  4. We are seriously blown away by your talents. This kitchen transformation is amazing – and to realize that it was completed in a weekend is mind boggling! You have shared wonderful and affordable renovation updates. Love the countertop transformation and tile! Gorgeous kitchen!

  5. Beautifully done! The flooring is the same as we have in our mudroom, bath, and laundry room…love the color and look. We have four dogs and one cat plus the five of us, it’s been almost three years and the floor still looks like new. We clean it with Simple Green spray that we wipe up with a Wet Jet.

  6. Can I just say… WOW. I love how the black turned out on the counter tops. Plus I also love the matte black faucets!!! Thank you for sharing the pics and where we could avail them :)

  7. Just curious, how were you able to remove your old sink with out tearing up the counter? My husband says our drop in sink is glued the the linoleum, so it would be damaged upon removal.

  8. Love it so much! Do you find your matte black faucet shows water spots & gets crusty? Mine is Pfister brand & it looks so gross with all of the white crust that won’t clean off. I’ve tried magic erasers, soaking it in vinegar, scrubbing & nothing takes it off! Yours looks beautiful! Also, how are the painted countertops holding up??

    1. Thank you so much! I actually haven’t found that ours had white crusty spots. I don’t use any abrasive cleaners on it – I mostly use soapy warm water! The counters are holding up while. I’ll be writing a post soon about how they are keeping up a year later – just a couple minor things :)

  9. I am just finding you and your account and am.loving everything so far! I really wanna know how those countertops are holding up so pleasease share an update soon! I’m ready for an economical change
