Love/List: My New Kitchen

Happy Friday!

Last October, I came home from New York City to find 2 massive holes where walls used to be – my husband had decided to start our kitchen remodel while I was away. We desperately needed an update – I mean look at that sconce above the sink! Totally not our style.

After 3 long months with a makeshift kitchen set up in my laundry room, I finally got my new kitchen and I’m sharing a few before + after photos today!

Justin did everything himself in the remodel, from ripping everything out down to the studs, adding a bigger window, framing in the new openings, drywall, floor, trim, cabinets – he even put the cabinets together!.. He is truly amazing + talented.

We’ve still got some trim to finish, and we’re saving up for the fridge that matches our other appliances, but I couldn’t be happier with the result.

Some of my fave details: our old trouble light/edison bulb penant lamps, the glass doors in the corner cabinets, the corian countertop + my new breakfast bar w/ the turquoise stools. We’re holding out for some Toledo drafting stools, but these are fun in the meantime!

We also got rid of a bedroom on the main floor and opened up the walls that once closed off the room. Now our main floor is wide open and I love it!

WAY more grown up, right? I’m in love with my table – and our centerpiece was one of the centerpieces from our wedding.

So what do you think? Better huh?
