Now for the fun part - the reveal. I have to add the caveat that it isn't really totally done. Craig needs to install blinds and caulk around the new tile. And I still need to buy curtains but I can't make a decision on them and the island has no stools, again because I can't decide what I want and I somehow didn't take any pictures of the desk/office area (across from table) but I need a big memo/chalk/pin board there but well, I can't decide what I want! Basically, I'm tired of making decisions and I don't want to waste money on filler things so I'll just wait until I'm ready to commit - but I won't make you wait for that.

So here it is, with the before images right above to remind you of how far we've come.


Here are shots of some of my favorite parts:

my island

View out the sink window

Pull out spice shelf - no wasted space here!

One of two glass fronted upper cabinets that show off my pretty and colorful fiesta ware and vintage bakeware.

Stove window. This picture was taken on cloudy day but normally sunlight is pouring in here, making it a great spot for bread to raise.

The "Craig pantry" which is shallow but actually very useful, and my pot rack which is something I don't think I could ever live without now that I've had one.


  1. Great transformation - love it!

  2. So gorgeous! I know you are so pleased with your space!

    Woo hoo, way to go!

    God Bless!

  3. Wow! I think it looks at least twenty times better. Maybe even forty or fifty.

  4. What an improvement! I love the backsplash color

  5. I can't figure out which superlative I want to use to describe how wonderful your kitchen looks. It's supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
