it has been refreshing this last week to see all of the progress that we have made on our kitchen!!
these projects have taken us such a long time that sometimes it's easy to forget just how far we've come.
since i don't have the best camera in the world,
i couldn't capture the entire room all together...but i did the best i could :)
(just imagine you are standing in the center of the room and turning counter-clockwise!)
the finishing touches included:
this chevron rug from urban outfitters
(i'm pretty sure the price has gone up since i bought ours...but it's still a screamin' deal!)
and BLINDS!!!! from danny's parents. thank you, thank you.
i love the way it has turned out.
i think it's safe to say the kitchen is now my favorite room in the house...
so now i can start cooking again! :)
we've gone without blinds for the last few months!!
with a window this big in the kitchen...let's just say it's good to have our privacy back! haha.
the fridge got moved to this corner due to it's humongous size.
it barely fit where our previous fridge was next to the stove,
but the right door would hit the wall and close on you...not cool.
we did a lot of rearranging, and decided we liked it best here.
would you agree?
also, notice the bead board on the bottom half of the wall??
we added that too.
we had to cut our computer table down
(it used to be running along the length of the kitchen window...)
but i think it's the perfect size. now, a considerably smaller amount of clutter can gather there!
the last thing i want to do is add a gallery wall above the stove/computer station.
similar to kirsten krason's:
so...what do you think???
p.s. sorry this is just getting posted! it's been a crazy day!
