My Kitchen Re-do

I know this post is off topic for my blog but I wanted to share where the¬†magic happens. Besides, who doesn’t like to see a good before and after? My weakness is watching the home makeover shows on HGTV so I’ll assume you love them too!

My husband and I recently moved into our first home together. The kitchen was great and had been previously redone over 15 years ago but we wanted to give it a breathe of new life. I also wanted to make it really functional for the amount of cooking and entertaining would like to do.

We had many ideas but some things were up in the air. Have you heard of the saying “you never know what’s behind the walls?” Well, this is such a true statement. We didn’t do a complete kitchen renovation because we were trying to keep the cost at a minimum. The HGTV shows are ridiculous in the sense that time and money are completely skewed. It’s never a couple thousand and it’s never a weekend. With that being said, our contractor was amazing and completed the project in 26 days.

We kept all of the cabinetry except for 2 walls and the walkway to make the island. Next, a lot of paint, subway tiled backsplash & poles, new countertops, sink, faucet, handles, air vent and lights did the trick!

*I know the window isn’t painted…. Lot’s of credit to my husband who wanted to get rid of the bar sink and put tiles on the poles, he really has the designer eye.

I’m incredibly happy and couldn’t ask for better!
