At Home

So...I was thinking about doing something a bit different on the weekends.  Saturday and Sunday are all about home and family!  My thought is to share my home with you!  We did go through a major renovation...I talked about it forever...it only makes sense that I would share the results!

So here we go!  Here are some before photos.  Some of you may know that we bought our home from Steve's mom. The original kitchen and dining room were two separate rooms.  My mother in law rocked a primitive theme throughout the house so it was a bit dark and very warm.  It totally suited her style, but I wanted to put my signature on this place.

The kitchen before:



The door on the right moves into the office, their old family room.


 The dining room, with my furniture...


We gutted down to the studs...took down the wall in between the kitchen and dining room.  My ultimate goal was to brighten it all up!  So we went white!  I love a simple, clean, classic design so shaker cabinets were chosen!

After:




The view from the dining room part of the space.


I love the new space.  My kids dance almost every day in the open space in the kitchen.  Cooking is actually fun now!

I will show you the details another time!  Thanks for looking!

  7. Oh, love your new kitchen! A huge difference! We are also going through a renovation phase, but we still haven't reached the kitchen. But when we do... I am sure about one thing - it's going to be white ;-)
