Kitchen: 90% DONE

So, I wanted to wait until we were actually 100% done with the kitchen before posting an “AFTER”…but we started this kitchen way back in August and I just can’t wait any longer. I want to show what we’ve done! 🙂

For those that need a refresher, here is our kitchen BEFORE:

Kitchen Before lfd621744-m5x 3ec829d626feb040fd44e7d0ba752ee3




And here is our kitchen AFTER taking down wallpaper, painting the walls, sanding, priming, and painting the cabinets, replacing the cabinet hardware, ripping out and replacing the flooring, replacing and painting trim, whitewashing the wood paneling, replacing the light above the sink and removing the wood stove!







All we have left to do is:

– Replace the trim and window sill on the window above the sink and paint white

– Replace the faucet (I HATE THAT FAUCET)

– Patch the hole in the ceiling from where we installed the insulation

– Paint the ceiling

– Decorate above the mantle (right now it is a catch all)

– Find a new durable yet comfortable rug (that one was pulled in before we started gutting the living room),

– Find a table

– Find window coverings of some sort?


I can’t wait for the shopping part!!! 🙂

  1. I’m so curious, did you remove the wood stove because it was not functional or purely aesthetic reasons? The paint and flooring makes it look so bright and clean, it looks great!

    1. Thanks!! We took out the wood stove because we wanted to take out the brick tiles under it and replace it with the same flooring all the way up to the fireplace. The brick was raised and we kept tripping on it and/or stubbing our toes!. Once we ended up having it out, we decided we really liked the look of the fireplace without the wood stove (once we clean it up a bit), although we did keep it in case we ever change our minds. It is still fully functional, but we do need to get some portions of the chimney fixed, according to our chimney guys!
