Okay, wait, let's look at how she looked before we bought the house. (Humor me - mmmmkay?)
Then we moved in and gave her a quick makeover.
(Side note: As a blogger it's so hard to look at old posts and see how terrible your pictures were. Not that I'm any better now - but geesh!)
Then we had some water issues, ended up having to replace our floors, and decided to give our kitchen a real make-this-kitchen-our-kitchen makeover.
You can read all about the deets involved in this mini-renovation including distressing and adding moulding to our kitchen cabinets, taking a cabinet down to bring in a range hood, adding a back splash, and taking cabinet doors off to build in a microwave and wine cooler in this post here.
And now we're right back where this post originally started. Here's how she's looking as of last week.
The breakfast room -
|Table and Bench - from Pottery Barn, Chairs - from Crate & Barrel|
The breakfast room is open to what I call the "working part" of the kitchen.
|New Rug - Ballard Designs (Indoor/Outdoor Rug)|
The mail center/ drop spot -
|Brass Bear Lamp|
From the other direction -
Little details -
|DIY Gold Leaf Frame|
|Do your kids love Pirate's Booty as much as mine do?|
That's the end of the tour.......until I make some other changes. ;)
It never really ends does it?
