House Update: Kitchen Renovation is Complete!

10 Nov

I hope you guys are all having a wonderful week! I have been wanting to write this post for a long time but I didn’t have the time to take the pictures and get my thoughts together. After six long months of hard work by my amazing husband (with some help from me), our kitchen is finally pretty much finished! The only things left to do are paint the other two window frames and get a new light fixture (which is why I’m not showing you the kitchen table area). I’m going to show you some before pictures (from the listing) and then the after photos.

First I will give you a brief rundown of what we did:

It was not easy by any means and it took a lot longer than we expected because life doesn’t stop during a renovation. All of the labor was done by us and Dan had a lot of help with the floor from my Dad and my aunt’s fiance Jorge for which we are so grateful. Many other friends and family members helped out throughout the process as well and we are so lucky to have such incredible people in our lives. We are so incredibly happy with the end result and it was definitely worth all of the hard work.

I will preface these pictures with a bit of background information; our stove is a Frigidaire Flair electric range and it is original to the home being built in 1952 and it works like a dream. It was actually the stove that was on the show Bewitched in Samantha’s kitchen! I wasn’t too sure about it at first but it is so unique and has become such a conversation piece.

Before:

kitchen-before-3

After:

Pillows: TJ Maxx. Rug: Christmas Tree Shop.

Thank you to Brian and Natasha for the wonderful new trash can and to Dave and Melissa for the adorable wine holder!

As you can see, quite the transformation has taken place! This has definitely been the most fun post to write as we are so proud of the results. Let me know what you guys think and if you have any questions at all, ask away!

    Shawna – this is AMAZING!!! I love how you really kept the charm of the kitchen while updating it. The white is so bright and cheery, and I am in love with that stove! Y’all did this space justice for sure.
