Kitchen Reveal

The kitchen is finally 99% complete, so now is as good as a time as any to post pictures of it, because a space is never really ever 100% complete is it?

First before pictures.

It really doesn't look too bad in the pictures, but the cabinets were full of nicks, the counter had deep scratches all over it and the appliances had seen a lot of use and it showed!

Here is during the remodel process, which now seems so long ago.

And now after.

IMG_6623IMG_6626IMG_6577IMG_6645I am sooo happy to be living and using our home with no contractors! We had wonderful people who helped transform our home but it is hard to be practically living with them for over six months. I am having a farmhouse table made for the nook. It will be made out of reclaimed barn wood. The table that is in that space is too small. At some point (when the bank account grows some) I want an antique runner for in front of the sink area. And I'll need new chairs for the table, but I really don't know what I want.

I am pretty happy with choices that I made, it is a comfortable space, light and bright and practical. But that said, if I could do it over again, there are some things I would do differently. I think it is a rare person who would do a project again exaclty the way they did it the first time. Sometimes I wish I could be that person, but there are just so many designs that I like, it is hard to choose!

It has been a long time since I published a post. I have been trying to get better at my photography. A promise to myself – take pictures EVERY day! Practice makes perfect (or least makes "better"!)

A couple of parting pictures, where I was trying to get artistic!
