This month - 11.11.13 to be exact is our house anniversary - as we celebrate 4 years of living here filled with so many memories, happy to say we finally have a completed kitchen! Our original hope was a total rehab, but given the kids were so young 2 years ago, we decided a mini-upgrade would fit us much better. Holding off on the nice new cabinets and flooring, we opted to paint our existing ones, new counter top, and stainless steel appliances.
While I loved our bright space, there were a few small projects in our future....and with the help of my handy brother in law and my husband (if you can believe) we added a fresh new coat of paint, trim around the base of the cabinets and island - and finally a backsplash which is my absolute favorite part! We are now the proud owners of a wet saw if anyone ever needs to borrow!
It's so crazy to think that our kitchen looked so different when we moved it, we seriously can't believe it! Excited to keep it moving, because you are never really done, right? 1 down 100 to go!
