Today kicks off a week full of wonderful. Each day I’ll be breaking down a different part of the kitchen, starting today with the full kitchen reveal.
This space is a special one. It’s the heart of our home, and the place where we spend most of our hangout time. With a lot of hard work, including knocking down an entire exterior wall and removing the ceiling in order to vault it, it’s now unrecognizable. But just for old time’s sake, let’s remember what it looked like before and blow your mind…. (you can also check out the video before tour, all the before photos, and progress videos HERE)
It’s a bit hard to explain in photos (the video does a much better job) but the new kitchen is actually where this bedroom once was. The old kitchen is part of the great room/living area adjacent to the new kitchen, and the old dining is the new dining, but pushed out after the addition.
Boy, it really is hard to believe it actually looked like that after seeing what it looks like now. I really wanted to re-use those appliances and just paint the cabinets white but it just wasn’t working with the floor plan. wink wink.
Behold, I give you our new kitchen (photos by Veronica Reeve):
Ruby got in on the photoshoot action while Anna was napping. She takes the kitchen up in the cute department, don’t you think?
I mean, can you even believe this is the same house? So so so much to break down and share with you, from countertops to hardware to cabinets to lights and styling details. I don’t want to leave you hanging today, so here are some sources. You’ll definitely want to come back tomorrow– I’m sharing how we did the cabinets and you guys, would you believe we did them ourselves? Yep. A DIY. It’s a good one.
Everything you’ll want to know about installing your own custom kitchen cabinets tomorrow!
