What's Cookin' in the Kitchen

We've officially started the kitchen renovation demolition!

It looks bad right now... but I've never loved the kitchen more. Having the wall opened up brings in SOOOO much light and I love it! Makes the house feel 10x bigger. I cannot wait until the reno is complete :)

The plumber is coming tomorrow to reroute the stack. Electrician comes next week to upgrade and reroute the electrical, add 5 canned lights in the ceiling, two pendant lights above the island, and new outlets for the fridge/microwave (which will be moving). See the plan for the layout here.

Shortly thereafter, contractor is coming to remove the studs, reframe the wall and redo the ceiling. Then, our friend who owns a wood flooring company is going to rip out the pergo and install hardwoods to match the rest of the house.

THEN, new slide-in range, farmhouse sink, countertops, and beautiful oil-rubbed bronze bridge faucet!

I actually find this wallpaper charming! Makes me sentimental about the history of our house :)

This weekend we are opening up the dining room wall (we just want to widen the entry). Let there be MORE light! :)

Soon it will look like this:

Thanks for being patient with me, I missed you all! xoxo


  1. Sara,
    This is going to look like a whole different house when you guys are finished. I can't believe all the work you have done in such a short time.
    The old wallpaper was kind of funky looking.
    I just can't wait to see the finished look with that new sink and faucet. Let there be light is right.

  2. oh my...that is going to be fabulous...but oh boy that is a lot of rerouting $$$$

  3. A bar sink may well be for cipher a lot more than rinsing little glasses, totally the fashion up to becoming utilised to clean dishes and pots. It can also exist needed to do anything in between those things.

  4. Awesome! I like the wallpaper too, it's sweet, reminds me of some I had in my old house. Maybe you should frame a piece and hang in new kitchen to remind you of what was!!! Love your blog by the wat, I am a fairly new follower! I am signing my name as I don't know which profile to select so I chose anon. Pam Nulty. Pensacola FL

  5. I can't wait to see more! I agree with the wallpaper, very charming and great nod to how old the house is. :)

  6. I found your blog via pinterest and love your style!

    When I saw that wallpaper, I agree it is really sweet, and I think it would make me sentimental too. I could picture using/saving in in a super mod all white home. But I love the look you are goign for.

    And happy birthday as well!
