The Kitchen Reveal! (pre – flooring)
Alright folks, the much anticipated reveal* is finally here! I say this with an asterisk because, sadly, we’re still living with subfloor in our kitchen & dining room. We’re saving up for flooring for our entire house, and hey! If you’re feeling mighty generous and want to help a girl out, vote for me and I just might win some mula towards new flooring!
If you’re new to our kitchen reno, jump to the end of this post for the full timeline.
Without further adieu, here she is!!!
To say I love my kitchen is a massive understatement. I am obsessed with it! I’m more obsessed than a tween watching Robert Pattinson walk into view in the first Twilight flick; I squeal like a piglet (in my head, not out loud, that would be odd) every time I walk into the kitchen. Sometimes I take a detour around my island when traveling from one corner of my house to the other JUST to be close to those cabinets! I’ve caressed the counters more times than I can count, and I’ve certainly caught myself drooling in the farmhouse sink as I wash dishes. I’m sorry I’m bragging about my new kitchen, try not to hate me too much, but I’ve never had something this brand new before in my home! My husband and I paid for it with our hard earned savings! It’s like a physical representation of our years of hard work, and we are mighty, mighty proud.
Now, for that legit before & after photo that every reveal post needs:
Can you even believe it’s the same space? Neither can I.
Thank you so much for enjoying this reno process with me! Living through a kitchen renovation was one of the most difficult things my husband and I have ever done together, and we hired out! I can’t believe we almost DIY’ed the whole thing. Major kudos to folks who can go through that together. You can read here why we decided against DIY’ing our kitchen remodel.

We’ve had the kitchen now for about a month, and besides learning how to care for marble counters and tip-toeing around the painted cabinets for fear the paint will fall off if we sneeze the wrong way (read here for why I have developed this complex), besides all that, so far everything has held up beautifully and we wouldn’t change a thing.
