Kohler In the Kitchen

This post is in partnership with Kohler. As we’ve slowly been updating every surface of our kitchen, it’s funny how easily we forget how things were before. Those yellow walls? The floating stove? Washing dishes by hand? Pfft! A distant memory! We’ve been spending an exorbitant amount of time in this room, nit-picking that 5% […]

Happy Countertop Day!

That’s what Scott and I said to each other this week, because you guys, we have counters! I was hoping to get this update out sooner, but if this kitchen re-do has proven anything, it’s that things don’t always work on our ideal timeline, and every step takes ten times longer than anticipated. In regards […]

The Cabinets Are In! (And the Mistake That Cost Us)

It’s starting to look like a kitchen in here! The cabinets are installed, and what a difference. This is true for every step in this renovation, but really, what a difference! The color (Ben Moore’s Distant Gray) is so perfectly white without a hint of blue or yellow. These old, crooked walls of ours have […]

A Hutch Makeover, Well Worth It

Phew – that beast of a hutch is done! And it’s so cute now! We knew it would take some work to refinish the wood when we first picked it up a few weeks ago, and that was confirmed when it rapidly turned into one of those projects that required a whole lot of stuff, […]

All the Finishes

This weekend saw a lot of kitchen progress, having started our kitchen island, completing the hutch (we’ll share this week!) and finally hunkering down and choosing a stone for our counters! Overall, the base palette for the room is every bit black, gray and white as we’d been craving, but we’ll be bringing in shine […]

Drywall Repair + Paint = :)

We have painted kitchen walls!¬†Yea, paint! As soon as the contractors wrapped up wave one of renovation last week, we were right behind them with our drywall tape, mud and sandpaper. Scott did the majority of this work while I continued the hutch refresh, and he powered through for an entire weekend and several nights […]

We Got a Dresser for the Kitchen!

As the kitchen evolves and choices have become more definitive, it because very clear that the majority of our budget was going to 3 main places: ONE) the back door wall (of windows!), TWO) cabinets and THREE) the countertops. In a nutshell, our money is going to the areas that are more permanent, and we’ve […]

The Anatomy of Our Pocket Door

We are mildly obsessed with our kitchen’s pocket door. And when I say mildly, I actually mean super, ultra, crazy. (Wildly, even?) Not only do we love the look of a good pocket door, but they just make sense in tight spaces – and in our case, this pocket door leads into a small barely […]

Electricity + A Window + A Door + All the Things

When we last left off with the kitchen, we had a pretty, minty pocket door. We were toying with the idea of removing a wing wall from the dining room leading into the kitchen*, and we were debating between three shades of white paint for the cabinets. Now, we’ve moved on to the hired work […]
