Although I’ve been posting photos of our kitchen on Instagram, it’s been a while since I’ve given you a renovation update here. We’ve been in and using the new kitchen for the last several weeks, and it’s been wonderful! Knocking a wall out to make the front room and existing kitchen area one big space has been the best thing we’ve done to our house so far. I’m also loving having a long island with five barstools (counter height, actually). I can literally stand and serve the food, then scoop it back up and clean their plates—all in one spot.
I know you might be waiting for a big reveal, but that post (good pictures, a full source list, etc.) may not come for a while longer. We’re doing this thing in real-life time, which means the little things I need to finish up will have to happen between Summer break, ballgames, and meals. Eating in and using the kitchen take precedence over decorating it sometimes. :) I do promise to post more updates in the meantime, though. . .
For those of you’ve asked me about the countertops or appliances or anything else, I’ll fill you in on that later, too. Three weeks isn’t a huge amount of time to be able to give you accurate feedback. But, I am happy with the honed granite so far. Give me a little time, and I’ll give you a better assessment.
So, what’s actually left? Our hood will (obviously) go where you see the big hole over the stove (see first image) and may get here next week. We’re also waiting on chairs, I’m still shopping for a dining bench, and I plan to paint the door and hang some pictures. For now, I’m just happy to be eating at home again.
