Kitchen ceiling and lights complete!

We've finished the ceiling and lights in the kitchen! It was a lot of work but I think it makes a huge difference!

Before and afters:

I also updated the light fixture above the sink to match the new fixture we installed.
All it took was a few shots of Rust-Oleum's Oil Rubbed Bronze. I used the paint and primer version, and it covered beautifully.

We had the same type of drop ceiling in our house when we moved in over 15 years ago. And at the time we loved it. Just last fall we ripped it out and installed track lighting. The room looks sooo much bigger, as I'm sure yours feels a lot bigger. I love the light fixture you chose.

I love your choices. Beautiful!
