in case you missed it on instagram, we are in the process of moving...again. someone was interested in our house and i was up for another project, my husband not so much. i wanted a gut job, my husband not so much...he was really enjoying our brand new home. we are moving a couple of blocks away to a mid-century ranch. never did i think i would say those words.....
but it's been fun so far. is it my choice of desired exteriors, not really but i love a challenge and i love watching the process of something transforming into your own. our house has only had one owner and so everything in the house was circa 1969. i tackled the kitchen first. here are some before pics...
one side of the kitchen, we are leaving the same layout. it houses great upper and lower storage, a pantry, and a built-in desk. we simply reworked the cabinet doors and drawers, changed out the bi-fold doors for the pantry and added ship lap to the walls. this side of the kitchen, we plan to use more as a bar. i am thinking of putting antique mirrors on the upper cabinet doors to make it a little different.
on the oven side, we ripped out the cook top and will replace it with a range. a new bottom cabinet was made to sit on the other side of the stove and a cabinet surround was made for the new refrigerator. our cabinet guy built a custom hood for the stove. there will be no uppers on this side of the kitchen.
well that gives you an idea on what i've been up to this summer. i want to be better about blogging during this renovation so don't give up on me :) xoxo, shannon
