Kitchen Reno Complete!!!!!








We are finished for now and while there were a few snags here and there, I'm pretty happy with the outcome. New cabinet doors did not happen. Apparently none of ours are the same size, and even more surprising is not one of them is a standard size. God bless random condo development construction. Sheesh.

However, I am very happy with our new digs! We sort of took a big kitchen idea and put it in our wee one, and I think it works. I love our sink and counters, and the new cabinet handles make me smile. I wanted a vintage feels with some modern elements. The faucet and handles were chosen with that in mind. I still need to properly sew the sink curtain (ie. wait for my Mom to visit), but other that that I'm feeling very content about the whole thing. It was a ton of fun, and a whole lot of work! We rarely got ourselves in a snit which I think amazed us both. I look forward to spending the day baking up a storm in our new kitchen!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and thank you all for your patience in waiting for us to finish!

  2. Thanks sis!! It took us a week and a half. The last week though has been long since Doug is back at work so we've been tiling and grouting and what not at night. Plus the handles didn't match up so we had to drill them in last night. I really love it though. It is just the french vintage utilitarian mix I was wanting. ♥

  3. Looks amazing Jessa. I'm a little jealous.
    We are anticipating our next move in the new year so I am collecting decorating ideas.
    I like French Country, Neil is more...modern :-)

  4. Thanks Celeste! Funny enough I find I lean towards more steam lined and Doug more towards antique. We both love french farmhouse kitchen though! Luckily our taste is very similar, just where he would do an antique tap, I go clean and modern.

    Moving is so exciting! We moved every year since we met except now that we own we've yet to move and I am stir crazy!! xx

  7. Thank you both! The sink is awesome! We didn't get the one we originally wanted since it was twice the price (although we were getting a great deal on it), and instead got this one from Ikea. I love using it!! ♥
