Kitchen renovation time - removing a wall, adding an island. Black matte appliances with a black farmhouse sink contrast well with the white cabinets and wood floors.
Here comes help – Demolition day
Behind the walls, cement. No insulation? It’s always been a bit chilly in the kitchen.
Once the floor and pipes repaired, new windows installed and the frame goes up – next step sheet rock. Harry the dog is admiring the dust settling on the pictures that were not moved before construction began.
Every kitchen needs a desk area I think – I do not want clutter to build up on the island, so this desk will hopefully help with the paper piles. Also, new custom made radiator covers will be painted white.
Loving the open concept. The wood floor after one of the 3 coats.
Waiting on the countertops.
I love the Whitehaven black farmhouse sink I got from Amazon! The GE appliances, faucet and hardware I got from our local Home Depot, along with the Thomasville cabinets.
Quartz countertop and small subway tile backsplash also ordered from Home Depot. Magnolia Wreath is from Wayfair.
Rug and coffee table ordered from Wayfair. Couches ordered but have not arrived yet. Wall compass purchased at Peter Andrews.
The new dining area is located in the back of the house – table from Peter Andrews. The light fixture is a Louis Poulsen pendant.
I am loving the look of my new open kitchen and the entire house.
My sons both like the new look too. I sure wish my mom and my mother in law and my late husband Mike could see the changes.
I hope we make lots of wonderful new memories in this home.
When people ask where I may be traveling this year, my husband announces that we are going to “Kitchen Island” this year. Due to COVID-19, I do agree that we will be spending lots of time right here at home.
