Kitchen Makeover Reveal

Home Blog Posts, Interiors, KitchenAnneke McConnell

Welcome if you are hopping over from the One Room Challenge!  It's been quite the push over these past six weeks to get one room completed, and we decided to tackle our kitchen, which we started this summer, but fizzled out on momentum.  More on that HERE.

We admittedly did not get everything done on our list, but I can say that I am just so happy with how it has turned out!  


Still yet to tackle:

  1. Trim out the kitchen sink window.
  2. Install backsplash (we did not paint since we are doing this).
  3. The lighting and window treatment were delayed, but will be installed as soon as they arrive.




Here's a recap so far -

Week 1: The Vision and Before Photos

Week 2: Painting the Cabinets

Week 3: Purging, Storage and Organization Solutions in the Kitchen

Week 4: Herringbone Tile

Week 5: Evaluating Progress




This reveal post is a little "lighter" than I'd like it to be since our kiddos were sick since last Wednesday and unfortunately it caught up to me this weekend, just after posting my last blog on Nautical Pendant Lighting. :-/ Boo!

I will be back this week with a full post that includes more photos and complete source details! As reference, the before photos were professional HDR photos taken for our home when it was a vacation rental.  The following were taken by myself, and although I'm improving, I'm thankful for these online courses that have taught me more about photography! 





Navy Blue Velvet Drapes (mine are from Target, but they are sold out) / rug found on eBay

Desk was a craigslist find - $50!

Capiz Shell Table Clock (found at HomeGoods - HERE is a similar version)

Looks like I caught out cute little Maltipoo Copper sleeping on the job! I not so secretly love that his ears match the blanket. Lol (similar here)

And a sneak peek into our little living room off the kitchen.  I just updated the fireplace stone with some paint so details coming soon about that!

BEST armchairs for cuddling with kids, puppies, and a book or magazine!

Isn't this the cutest little wishbone jewelry tray I found for by the kitchen sink?! I got ours at HomeGoods, but found a similar one HERE.


Wishing you all a Happy Holiday Season! Thank you for your encouragement along the way!
