Our finished kitchen!

Our new kitchen is finally finished! Actually it’s been done for a few weeks now, but I hadn’t gotten around to posting photos until now. I’m sorry to all of you who have been waiting! Mom, Veronica, Kim… this is for you. πŸ™‚

Check out all the progress! This transition took eight weeks, and we love the results!


I love my cheery gerbera daisies.


Our cabinet hardware


Look at how reflective the granite counters are!

I’m excited to have storage for cookbooks! I actually use them regularly now. Also we love our cool salt and pepper shakers, which were gifts from Mike’s brother. Next to it is our weather clock, which tells us the forecast. Really cool.


Do you remember the doorway that wouldn’t let us open the freezer door? Well it’s all fixed and widened now.


I love my atomic fruit bowl.


Our dining room.


The candle sconces are new, and they look really pretty when lit up at night.


We orderd a yellow Roman shade for the window, but it was the wrong color when it arrived.


Love it! Love it!

Your kitchen and dining room are absolutely beautiful! I especially like your salt and pepper shakers, do you have any idea where I could buy them or who makes them?

Hey Frank! It’s great to get your real estate savvy opinion! I’m really glad you like it!

Perfect! It’s all ready!

Hi Michael! You guys are so awesome!! Thank you thank you for the fabulous kitchen!!

How funny… I haven’t seen that episode of Friends, but I can totally relate. I hope you enjoy your front room redo!

Awesome, thanks! It’s scary to plan each individual part and hope it will all come together right!

Yeah, it leave dents on the pears, and plums fall right through it. But it’s great for apples and oranges. πŸ™‚

Re: can i move in??!

Thanks, Amy! Come any time! πŸ™‚

Yeah, I’ve been wanting to remodel ever since day 1 in this house! It’s so exciting that we could finally do it.

Re: πŸ™‚

Stunning!

awesome! I bet it’s really putting a bounce in your step whenever you’re in it.

the fruit bowl is really cute, but doesn’t it make lines on the fruit?

I love the light coming in. It’s gorgeous.

I love the light coming in. It’s gorgeous.

GORGEOUS! Great appliances. Beautiful floor. LOVELY granite & cabinets. NICE JOB. I have massive kitchen envy!

Ooh your new kitchen and diner oozes elegance! And I now know what Pheobe Buffet meant when when she says “ooh new sconces” in Friends.
Ever since I have seen how cosy your house looks in that colour I have vowed to do my front room in it when we find out new house.
I love your dining room. The carpet is a lovely touch.

Beautiful! Major improvement over the crazy counter!

can i move in??!

I L-O-V-E it! especially the rug in the dining room and all the light you get in there. WOW! The kitchen is stunning and all that clean counterspace! I have a kitchen that is too small and I have a penchant for kitchen stuff… Bad combo.

Congrats on a job well done!
