Hey guys! So its been a couple of months since we finished renovating our kitchen but I wanted to share with you guys about it. The day we moved in this house i realized how bad it really was, the wood was rotted out under the sink from a leak we had no idea had been there and the faucet was all rickety and there was this tiny apartment size dish washer that would never be able to do enough dishes for a family of 6 thats for sure! We stuck it out while we worked on alot of other things that needed done in the house to make it our “home”. Anyways back to the reno haha, the first to go was the floor, it was a high gloss vinyl that looked like a honey oak so we took it out and installed reclaimed wood tile which my husband did himself which saved lots of money with him knowing how to install tile. We also had lost alot of cabinet space compared to our old kitchen so the hubby built us a pantry so that solved our space problem. Here is a picture of the pantry that he installed, this was just a wall with a clothe shoot and he took it out and we used the dead space in better ways.
We decided to keep the cabinets that we had and we replaced the rotted board under the sink and built some dividers between the cabinets that were not there before and refresh them with a new paint lift as well as new hardware. We got maple butcherblock countertops from lumber liquidators and installed new subway tile back splash. We also went to Ikea and got a farmhouse sink with a new faucet. We did have to alter the cabinets a little for the sink to fit but it just looks great and you would think it had been there the entire time. Aaron also took out this horrible breakfast nook area that was open to the living room and we installed a butcherblock top with some piping legs and also took out the post that had this horrible original track lights. The paint color on the walls are silver strand on the top by Sherwin Williams and the bottom is Du Jour by Valspar. The cabinet color top is also Du Jour and the bottom is Fashion Grey by Behr. Attached are some before and after pictures and links to where you can find products that we used in our kitchen. Enjoy your day friends! Please feel free to post any comments I would love to answer any of your questions.

The Rug is from Marshalls, Rae Dunn pottery is from home goods, and the little wreathes on the cabinets are from a local shop called Elements on Main.
