*House Tour* Kitchen

 To see the first Installments in the house tour series, click HERE

This room is the one that has made the biggest impact in our home. It's located at the center of the house and is where everyone ends up when we have people over. It was a complete gut job, took 8 months to finish, and almost made me cry a couple times. I'm blaming that on the hormones though since I was pregnant (very pregnant) at the time.
In case you don't have time to click through all the links, here are a few before pictures:

  1. beautiful job! swooning over the brick in the kitchen.

    :) popping by via tuesday's treasures and would love to have you visit my blog when you have a moment.

    smiles to you.


  2. I love this! Can I come bake in it some time? :) One of my favorite features is the black and white photo 'frame' hanging in the dining room. Did you make it? Are the photos attached to wire? It's lovely...and the perfect solution for a lot of the old family photos I have laying around. This is the perfect redo!

    the hubbi and i are house hunting...
    CANNOT wait to decorate!

  7. I love it!! You should do a post on that photo feature you have by the dining room table. It looks amazing!

  8. Wow! That's amazing! looks soooo gorgeous!

  9. Whoa!! Looking at the room down to its studs would have been intimidating to me, but your after photos are amazing. (I truly mean that) I love the thrifted frame you have hanging on the wall. I tip my hat off to both of you; renovation is never easy. :)
