And here is the final before and after of today, a fantasmic redo from Better After reader Jillian. Her former kitchen had all the thrill and personality of a WNBA game (ohnoIdidn’t) but the after is legitimately jaw-dropping. She and her husband did most all the work themselves and I love it so much I’m legitimately drooling. Thanks so much Jillian, great job!

    Does Jillian not have a blog to look at and learn more about the makeover?

    Dakota, my thoughts exactly! I’d love to see more of the details. Like the paint color and where she picked up some of the fabulous finds here.

    Hi! I am Jillian and if Lindsay does not mind I can answer a few qustions. 1st. My bad for not having a blog – really, I know you should virtually slap me. 2nd. These comments made my day. 3rd. The paint is Martha Stewart “driftwood gray” and my husband chose it. The pendants are Restoration Hardware “Harmon” pendants….but I got them NIB on Ebay 2 for less than the price of one (now you hate me). 4th. I live in South Carolina. 😉
