house updates // kitchen

Before // eat-in kitchen




Flooring and cabinet doors being removed

Fridge is out // ready to remove cabinets on this side of kitchen

Cabinets and stove hood removed // walls patched

Added inches behind fridge so we could fit one of normal size

More wall smoothing

My mom got the fun job of removing the blue paint from this window

And she got it all off with a smile! That fan was sitting super low, not to mention
how hideous it was. We said goodbye to it a few months later.

After we removed the layers of flooring, we put down a new sub floor
and then laminate tile

Such an improvement!

This was the biggest kitchen project. Travis worked an entire weekend on this...
After removing the door, we found ourselves fixing a lot of other problems
underneath it before he could install the new door and storm door.

Finished painting the walls, got new appliances, and added open shelving.

Painted cabinets and put back with new hardware // opened up doorway to the bedroom-turned-dining-room

Chalkboard door! My favorite part of the kitchen. That, and the fact that we found this door in the basement and didn't have to buy a new one.

We turned the eat-in area to a mudroom/office. We only use the side door and
needed a place to dump our stuff when we walk in the door. And we've always
wanted our computer to be in the kitchen.  It's much roomier than it would
have been with a table. The shelves, desk and locker are from Ikea and we made the coat rack.

New door that still needs paint! 

Still need to do:
put in new baseboards(the old ones were rubber faux wood... yuck) 
new stove hood // fix door jamb to dining room
 new window treatments // paint metal part of ceiling lights
grout the tile floor(yes, this laminate can be grouted)
paint the doorbell cover // caulk around new door and paint the trim
paint door inside and out // new countertop, sink and faucet(next weekend!)
paint final coat on ceiling
