I could go on and on about our kitchen remodel, but I will spare you all the drama. There were plenty of things that did not go as as planned, even though I had a massive excel spreadsheet full of numbers and timelines and deadlines. Needless to say, we learned lots and lots about home improvement during this project. We learned even more about patience. And did I mention that we were also in the midst of planning a wedding?
A few quick things to note…the nook area actually used to be a bedroom. The owners before us took down the wall, however, they left us with some pretty interesting ceiling and wall lines. The goal of the renovation was to connect these two rooms more seamlessly, and also stick with a 1920′s period craftsman feel, while modernizing the kitchen and bringing it up to speed with the times (hello ice maker and garbage disposal!).
I’ll let the pictures do the rest of the talking:
