I haven’t blogged about my home remodel in a couple months and thought that it was about time I showed you some more. Truth be told – I have been holding off – there are still a few things missing in our kitchen and I haven’t wanted to reveal it but I guess that is the best part about a creative blog – I can show you the progress as we go. I almost named this post “Will Blog For Kitchen Cabinet Doors!” But I guess this will just make it a little more exciting when we finally get them done.
If you are new here or if you need a small reminder: Here are a few before shots. I took these “amazing” pictures the night we walked into our home for the first time.
In this picture I am standing in the dining room area: To see the living room transformation click here.
And here I am walking through the pocket door:
Here is a photo taken from the pocket door:
I took this picture from the stairs:
and this last one I took from by the window:
The cabinets were practically falling apart, I wasn’t a fan of the yellow tile, or the backsplash or the fact that there was no pantry – (Hello! Where do I put my food?) or the pocket door or the teeny tiny dining area or the…
Okay. Okay. I wasn’t a fan of any of it! So we got busy and gutted out the entire thing!
Told ya! Now looking back at these pictures it is crazy to think that it ever looked like that. haha! Then the hubs and I put our heads together and started building a kitchen that made sense to us.
We built a HUGE pantry in the corner. We installed all new windows. We added can lighting. We moved the plumbing and put the sink under a different window. We took out a window and installed French doors. We added a pony wall. We built up a wall to separate us from the family room. We installed all new appliances. We installed granite countertops. We installed wood floors. And when I say WE I really do mean it. The husband and I did this whole thing ourselves! It is awesome being married to a man that can do all of these things himself!
And we LOVE it!
I don’t really have a lot to say about the change in the kitchen that the pictures don’t say themselves besides how much I love it. I love it. I love it and love it some more! Even without cabinet doors and a backsplash I think it still looks a whole lot better!
I love the deep “chocolate pudding” walls and the crisp contrast of the white baseboards and molding.
I double heart these double ovens!
Since I took these pictures a few weeks ago – we finally added blinds!
My neighbors are extremely grateful for that!
