New Kitchen Renovation in Progress

So I normally hate posting projects that aren't finished, but with the craziness of our lives right now, people asking me to post pictures, and having just had baby #3 last week, I'll just post where we're at right now. 

Here is the picture of our kitchen before:

... and here is the kitchen currently...

Dave raised the upper cabinets to the ceiling and added the open shelving underneath. He put in a real range hood and added a shelf over the stove. He also built the cabinet around/above the fridge and painted all the cabinets.

We replaced the old countertop with black honed granite and added the subway tile backsplash.

We removed the cabinet to the right of the window to use in the play room and will be replacing it with rustic wood open shelving. I'll post later about each detail and sources as well as paint colors. We still have a bit of work to do and need to refinish a table for the eating area. But for now, I have to go change a diaper :-)


  1. It is absolutely beautiful Rachel. What talent you two have in making a nice home even more beautiful!

  2. It is looking awesome! I love everything you've done!

  3. Thanks, guys! It was a fun project and it's nice to have it be brighter in there!

  4. It looks fantastic. I love how you did the venthood and cupboard over the stove. We painted our kitchen cabinets and made a few changes and I know all to well how much work is involved.

  5. Wow! That is a lovely kitchen, indeed. There’s so much to love in your kitchen, from the new cabinets to the new paint. I’m sure you’ve put on so much work in there, and all is really worth it. I'm too excited to see more of your renovation projects in your future posts. Congratulations on baby #3, by the way! All the best! :)

  6. Raising the cabinets to the ceiling really make a lot of different to the look. Great job.
