In 2013, I lived in a small bungalow in NJ. At that time, butcher block countertops with subway tile back splash were all the rage. I ordered two of the better quality 8 foot maple butcher blocks from Lumber Liquidators. My aunt owns a flooring and tile business in PA, and helped me pick and order some beautiful calacatta gold marble subway tile for the backsplash. A friend of mine let me borrow his wet saw, and off to work I went.
Kraus makes this beautiful stainless undermount sink that I ordered online. I remember being super impressed with the packaging too. At this point, I couldn't tell you the specific colors that I used on the cabinets and walls, unfortunately. I bought two builder grade cabinets for each side of the stove and luckily found matching trim and hardware, and was able to make them look just like the rest of the cabinets. I also added some crown molding & trim to the top cabinets.
I wish I had written a blog on this back then and kept track of the budget and colors and all minor details, but I'm grateful to have my before and after pictures. I was so proud of this little kitchen that I brought to life 😍
