It’s been a while since I have posted any progress on our house. Like all of you, things have been so busy. Good busy, but we are still trying to unpack boxes and find a place to put everything. It’s all of the little odds and ends that kill me, but we are finally getting to the point where I feel like this is our home. One that I love to come home to and know that it is ours. We are still in the process of finishing our kitchen, but I wanted to show you our progress so far and the paint colors I chose.
Here are the before pics. Oak cabinets, wallpaper, linoleum flooring, super old appliances (funny side note- I used to babysit in this house and can remember cooking mac n’ cheese on that stove, so weird!) and countertops from the 1970’s.
Here are the BEFORES: (I was so excited to get those cabinets down I forgot to take pictures beforehand!)
This is what we have accomplished so far:
*Painted the kitchen cabinets White Dove by Benjamin Moore (more on that later)
*Replaced all of the hardware on the cabinets, brushed nickel
*New appliances from Lowe’s
*My husband installed the hardwood floors
*We removed the wallpaper and retextured one wall because of all the gunk we couldn’t get off
*We replaced the light above the sink
*We painted the walls Vapor Trails by Benjamin Moore
Our projects we still have left to do:
*Replace the countertops, I need to make my decision this weekend, then they should take 3-4 weeks after that. Yay!
*Paint the ceiling. It needs a fresh coat of paint to cover up a couple of stains and brighten things up.
*Take out the fluorescent light and replace it
*Install the backsplash
*Replace the electrical outlets
*Create a little office area for my computer and paperwork
*Curtains and decorations
In the meantime we have been doing projects in other rooms of our house which I will continue to show you.
For other updates we have made, see here. It’s a work in progress, but so fun to the think of the end potential. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
