I can’t believe we finally get to share with you the complete kitchen renovation before & after!!!!!
I remember standing right here in this kitchen, middle of January, snow falling and just walking around this old house imagining our family here. The doorknobs and old built ins totally stole my heart, I could see our exterior painted white with the glass backboard basketball hoop, all the father of the bride vibes. I could picture us cozied up in front of the fireplace in the family room, kids playing in their sunny upstairs playroom & all the backyard hangs under the string lights.
The kitchen was going to be our biggest project ever. I twas daunting, but we really could see the possibilities, right from the beginning.
The day we moved to Kansas City, we walked into this space half gutted, smelling like paint and dust. We could barely breathe, some of that from the fumes, some of that from the gut feeling of “what have we done.” We lived in a hotel for a week watching our house get destroyed as they did new electrical, then lived with my parents for over a month as they rebuilt the entire thing, and then, for the last three months, we lived here with half of the existing kitchen & through the renovation while we dreamed up all the possibilities of what we wanted to do with this space.
We raised the ceilings by taking out the old soffits, we removed lots of upper cabinets for a more open, airy look. We chose inset shaker cabinets, antique brass fixtures, carrera marble for our countertops, and a little bit of shiplap just for fun.
We cannot wait for all the meals, gatherings & holidays in this space!!!
