And the Kitchen
Now, how can I post a kitchen project we did recently if no one knows what the kitchen is looking like to begin with? I can’t, duh, so I’ve got to show it! (The same goes for other rooms, obviously–but those will have to wait a bit longer.)
As I’ve mentioned before, we started this blog about half-way through our progress and the kitchen was actually renovated over a year ago.
So the photos I’m showing here are of the updated and extremely stripped down kitchen to showcase its bones. And since I didn’t document its transformation in real-time–consider these the before and just-finished after photos. :) (It’s not normally this sterile–we do actually live here…)
First up is the before:
And here is what it looks like now:
It was a long and issue-riddled process: For instance, the countertops got the wrong edging (Ev didn’t notice and let the installers leave–I got home a few hours later and noticed it right away! We got some of the cost refunded because of it, though…) and we lived without a functioning kitchen for a looong time (3 months?). Also, we had to do an emergency replacement of the window over the sink (long story…) Oh well–it’s over now and it’s all good :) Whew!
So now that that’s out-of-the-way, I can start posting about kitchen projects and decorating!! And I have a few…
What do you think about our kitchen renovation? Are you a fan of the white cabinet revival trend or are you all about the warm wood tones?
P.S. see our kitchen in the daytime here.
