KITCHEN REVEAL

Our upstairs kitchen was barely functioning by the time we moved downstairs, so the brand new appliances, counter space and functioning outlets were a REVELATION.

I was a bit more involved with the kitchen remodel – I went to the marble slab yard to pick out the counter tops and numerous tile shops to pick out the stainless steel penny tile. Home Depot, a bajillion times. Tristan and I installed the backsplash together. Tristan did everything else :). I’m so thrilled with how it turned out!

Here are the before pictures:

Entry from living room to kitchen

basement 8

Nothing like dented linoleum to really drive home the need for change

basement 6

A weird small room adjacent to the kitchen which we ended up including in the kitchen footprint

basement 5

… as tempting as it was to try to salvage this bookcase with three-inch-deep shelves …

I had some leftover fabric from when I had slipcovers made for the Parson’s chairs, so I whipped up some matching curtains

Any excuse to show off my vintage barware collection…

We needed to keep a pole here, so we added wine storage as a filler so that the oven could open without hitting it

Yays! For those who are curious, Tristan poured the concrete floors and dyed them the burnt umber color. The cabinets are from thertastore.com.
