We started the kitchen remodel last spring and it has been a very long process but well worth the wait!
I am displaying the pictures in a progression of the gradual transformation of the kitchen..
What the kitchen looked like when we first bought the house.
                                         After i painted the cabinets white..
                                          then white and beige..
                                                Beginning of DEMO!!

Although there are still things that could use perfecting (paint, floor, moldings) I am so grateful to have a beautiful new, clean kitchen and lucky to have such awesome parents who trusted me with my creative design abilities!

I have also been on the hunt for a dining table for who knows how long till I stumbled upon a quick, inexpensive, easy IKEA! 

I found these table legs in the Home office section in Ikea for 14.99 
The table top was only 60! 
So grand total for dining table =$90
2 coats of stain and 2 coats of polyurethane. 

All the chairs I have found over time on curbs and streets, just painted and reupholstered. One day I will have all new matching chairs, but works for now!


  1. very nice! cool to see the whole process.

  2. I know how painful that process is! Bravo on the finished project and the nice pics.

  3. WHAAAAATTT?!?!? I've been living across the street all this time and you have that GORGEOUS kitchen?? Bring your hammer over here and fix MINE!

    I love what you've done, it's absolutely stunning!!
