My Kitchen Makeover

They say that the home is where the heart is. Kris and I learned this when we were renovating our house last year. It was truly a labor of love. One of my favorite rooms in any house is the kitchen. Well when we moved into our house, the kitchen was a total disaster. The following picture may scare you, but this is what our kitchen looked like when we closed on our house.

At first glance I thought we could keep some of the cabinets because I liked the unique details, but upon further inspection we realized that they needed to be replaced. So with that we decided to change everything. I even had my first foray into demolition. Needless to say when I arrived bright and early on demolition day in rhinestone sandals and I was quickly sent to get food for the crew instead. Ha!

After the demolition was complete, we spent countless hours selecting appliances, flooring, granite and cabinets. My design aesthetic is clean, eclectic, and shabby chic. That aesthetic continued into our kitchen as well...here is my "virtual tour" of our updated kitchen. I hope you have a wonderful Saturday! xoxo
