Kitchen Remodel

PicMonkey Collage
I have been slow at posting about the kitchen renovation because we still have detail work to finish.  But I have decided I may as well post a sneak peek, right?  All we have left is to finish the kick boards under the cabinets and add cabinet hardware- I am SO EXCITED and SO READY to be finished with projects around the house!
Here is a list of everything we updated:
-new paint on walls
-painted cabinets
-installed new backsplash
-installed concrete overlay on countertops
-new sink and faucet
-added pendant lighting above island and sink
I absolutely love the sleek and minimal outcome.  But… it took a total of 4 whole months, which is a lot longer than we expected.  I have to admit, we couldn’t have done it all without my in-laws- they came over many a day to help tear things out, paint, install, and clean up.  All in all, we learned remodeling is hard work!

House Update: New Floors

We have a lot more than just the new floors in but I feel like I should post about one thing at a time!

We originally had a dark tan carpet in our living, dining room, and bedrooms and light hardwood in the entry and kitchen. Now, we have porcelain tile that looks like gray hardwood throughout the house except the bedrooms, where we put gray carpet. It probably sounds like a lot of gray but I love it!!

I am amazed how new flooring makes the whole house feel new.
