Ready for a HUGE transformation?

I may not have done much today except for work, but I do have something to unveil. Our kitchen.  It’s been 3 years in the making- and still isn’t TOTALLY done (I’d love a tile backsplash, new countertops, faucet, a million dollars….) but the current phase of kitchen is complete.

So I want to show you this before picture.  And tell a little story. I walked into this house with Ki 5 years ago, walked into this kitchen, put down my son’s baby carrier and said- this is the house I want to buy. Ki took one look at this kitchen and looked at me and was like- uhhhhh, don’t you want to see the rest of it? But I saw tons of potential. And looking around the kitchen today I know now what I saw. Even if the before picture makes me cringe a little when I look back on it.

Here she is in all her glory. Stained wood with the dated trim piece over the window- complete with almond appliances.


But today she stands before you with redone cabinets, no dated trim piece, new crown molding, new appliances, one less cabinet and a hood microwave. It’s been a lot of work. Painting cabinets is a form of torture I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy…but good lord it’s so worth it.

Now the question remains….what do we put on that large blank wall behind the table?

    Cheering loudly for you! I totally get big projects. It’s a ton of work and time! Yeah if I could find a box of thousand dollar bills it sure would make projects less time consuming and tiresome! My kitchen looks almost like your. It’s on my list of things to do. Well I’m super thrilled for you and you’ve given me hope! Happy fall, Koko 🙂
