We are a month into our kitchen reno and I thought it was time to share an update with photos!
I wish I could say it is finished...but it is well on it's way and for that I'm going to say thank you and keep practicing patience! (Although eating off of paper plates is getting OLD.)
Here is my last post with the before photo (ack!) and lots of inspiration images and the plan.
But in case you want to see that before again...
And here are the progress photos!
We had a new window installed which provided a much bigger before and after than we imagined! Worth every penny.
I'm really proud of Dan for getting the pieces for our island ready for the contractors. He painted the cabinets and has painted countless coats of sealer on the butcher block counter. Here it is temporarily put together so we could get an idea of how it will fit in the space...
The island will house our cooktop and have an extra piece of counter added to the back to accommodate stools. It will also have a surround added to cover the base cabinets that we'll be painting turquoise. The awesome cabinet with the pull out drawers was a super lucky Goodwill find, and we grabbed the slim cabinet from the clearance section at IKEA (we'll be adding shelves inside). They were mismatched colors so Dan painted them both white which really pulls it together. The butcher block top is also from IKEA.
And umm how perfect is that Raskog cart nestled in the middle? I'm dying. Can't wait to see it finished!
Next week is supposed to be counter install, which will then lead to the sink and hopefully back to a functioning kitchen very soon after that! Eek!
SO ready to stop using those red solo cups. It looks like a 24/7 frat party at our house!
