The Heart of the Home is Finished!
(except for a few "little" details!)
Here is a little reminder of the "Before"
Yes, we had our work cut out for us!
AND.......Here she is After!
Yes, I am in love :)
I promise it's the same house....walls removed, wood ceiling installed, new cabinets, appliances, windows flooring, lighting, plank back splash, paint....worth. it. all!
Another "Before" shot looking from the small doorway that separated the dining and kitchen....the bi-fold doors lead into the laundry room...
The left side of the kitchen is where the door for the master bedroom originally opened up to....we "rearranged" a little bit....
Here is the After of the left side of the kitchen...
Behind this wall....
is a "little nook" that we made into my desk area.....My Dad gave me this table a few years ago and Grant refinished it for me. It is the perfect addition to the kitchen area and it makes a great spot for my morning coffee, reading, emailing, grocery list making....and everything else!
One of the "little details" left to do is a free standing island...I was hesitant to commit to something with our cabinet builder until I was sure that it would not be too congested but, there is plenty of room! I have some plans for it and hopefully it won't be too long until I can share that with you, but for now I am enjoying every minute in my "cottage kitchen" just as it is.
I loved designing, planning and making the choices for the renovation...and thankfully, my husband is an AMAZING guy who was able to make it all happen! Would we do it again?....ask us in a few months. :)
I have LOTS more to share...it's just been a little busy getting settled and starting school, but I can't wait to show you my "barn door!" Let me know what you think.
Off to fix dinner...
