A Kitchen Peek

The cupboards are bare, but it is coming together...
What a difference from before!  It will take me some time to add more touches to make it feel like home again!
Two wing back chairs flank either side of the room and were a gift for Mother's Day.
Now, I just need to learn to cook!
As of two days ago, we have a functioning kitchen!  The water was turned back on and the refrigerator is now cold!  I am washing dishes and restocking the cabinets today.  When you don't have your kitchen, you realize how much it is the center of your home!  What a great Mother's Day present to be (almost) finished!

Here are a few shots of the mostly finished space.  This has consumed my life for the past several months.  If you are considering a kitchen remodel, or really any remodel in your home, come back and see what lessons I have learned.  I will start posting again soon!

Thank you!


Happy 40th Birthday Heather 'At the Picket Fence!'

Hi Christie! Your new kitchen is so beautiful. I love the long dining table. We totally gutted our kitchen just a year ago and thankfully, it was only 3 weeks of work. Mind you, it's a very small kitchen, but we installed all new cabinets, sink and heated flooring. The last purchase we made was a dishwasher (my first!) and the over the range microwave in August. During the reno our contractor set up our old sink in a temporary counter for a week until they were ready for the new cabinets. After that I did dishes in the set tub downstairs. It is quite a big job but so worth it. I know with young children you must have been very inconvenienced but you will enjoy this reno for years to come. Blessings, Pamela

OMGosh....let me pick my chin up from the floor and wipe away the drool! You are a very blessed lady. I don't know much about you, but if you don't cook often I'll just die.

Happy Mother's Day weekend,

Oh I am in love with your kitchen! We are rennovating my inlaws 1978 home that has never had a single update in it's years. It was recently given to us with very little left on the note. I daydream daily about the kitchen reno. It's the most exciting part of the entire house to me. Are those windows original size to the home or did you make them bigger? I love how they are nearly floor to ceiling!!

Kellie Collis said...

How exciting! Loving the sink already! Enjoy the gorgeous week ahead, Kellie xx

Jemsmom said...

Wow is mild as to how I feel about this kitchen!!! I love the lanterns over your table! It is gorgeous!!!

At The Picket Fence said...

Oh my goodness! You're here! We've missed you! It's gorgeous! hehe..was that enough exclamation points?! ;) I cannot wait to see every single detail, what you've showed us is beyond fabulous. So glad to see you are "back" and thank you so much for the sweet birthday wishes...made my day to see them!

Pleeease tell me the source of your wing chair. So beautiful!!

Pleeeeease share the source of your wingback chairs--so beautiful!!

Christie said...

The wingback chairs came from Hancock and Moore. I purchased them at a shop in Charlotte, NC. The fabric is Cooper Natural. I am glad you like them! They are one of my favorite things in the entire room!

Christie said...

The windows are original to the house. The house is about 15 years old. I love having them open with no window treatments, but the light is so bright it will fade everything! Maybe shutters?

Bridget said...

This is so lovely! Well done! I really love everything!

Christi said...

Everything looks beautiful!

I look forward to all the details.

Leslie said...

Oh, my goodness! What a kitchen!! You must be thrilled and excited to live and share your new space. I can't wait to see more pictures. Knowing you, you'll take that gorgeous kitchen and turn it into the ultimate welcoming space full of love and family! You're an inspiration. :)
Blessings,
Leslie

Where did you find the rug in the kitchen? Is it antique? I'm looking for one with a similar look for my home.

My husband and I are getting ready to paint our cabinets. Picking the right white is much more difficult than we had anticipated. Could you please tell me what color white you chose? It is stunning! Kari
