Bye-Bye 1982 Hello 2015

I just want it to be known that I did not want a renovation house. That was my one requirement when we first started searching for homes. God must have gotten a good laugh when he placed an amazing outdated house right into our hands. Through a friend of a friend we bought a house in a neighborhood we loved but could not afford. The house was not even on the market. It was OUR house, well actually Austin had to do lots of convincing before it became our house. The house was in excellent shape but needed to be brought out of 1982. We are working through several renovation phases and the first one is the kitchen. Fingers crossed we should be done in a month or two. Here are some before pictures of the kitchen.
We Austin gutted the kitchen and luckily his dad came to help some too.
Happy birthday to Austin!

The cabinets are Sherwin Williams Aesthetic White

Notice the yucky ceiling fan is gone too! Austin installed 4 recessed LED lights.
We've had granite installed and our farmhouse sink. The appliances have been a mess to install and our fridge is in the middle of the floor but hopefully I will have some finished kitchen pictures soon!

  3. Great start guys! What a transformation already. I too am so against these projects in theory/concept, but having witnessed them now a number of times I'm finding significant appeal and the possibility of one becoming my reality sometime soon! Congrats on the progress thus far

    1. It's a great way to get all of your wish list items! You should jump on board! I bet you would be great at it!
