I’m very happy to tell you that we’ve tackled our first and second major projects:
- installing hardwood floors in the main living areas
- remodeling the kitchen
The result is very farmhouse chic, don’t you think?
I’m very happy with the granite countertops. There was much debate on which way we would go.
In the end, we decided to invest (it really is an investment, IMHO) in the granite and rework existing cabinetry for the island.
I just love these silvery medallions featured throughout the backsplash.
And these cabinet knobs make me think of old drawer pulls on a piece of antique furniture.
My very favorite thing right now is this hardwood flooring. Sigh. I love the old farmhouse feel of it.
And this is my new favorite place. As a matter of fact, I’m sitting here right now!
I feel extremely blessed at this very moment. God is so good! My sweet husband was able to accomplish most of this work while my children and I vacationed on the beach. It would have been quite uncomfortable to live in this space (with little ones, no less!) while it was being torn apart and put back together. The house existed without a kitchen for a full week (gasp!). Now, there are no more floors to vacuum (which was impossible for me to do with my neck). No more stains on the carpet. No more worrying about children traipsing in and out the door. And to give you a little perspective on just how hard my family is on the furnishings around here…
Yep. Everything is now durable in these rooms. I am one happy mama.
