Ohhhh how far we’ve come! Take a look at that scary photo above. It was after everything had been ripped out and the construction team was still working hard to get the floors, walls and ceilings done. Thankfully this was before we moved in! If you want to see more frightening photos of the original kitchen you can see part 1 of our kitchen renovation here!
In the photo above you can see our new appliances and cabinets! We got these a few months back and it was so amazing to finally see the kitchen coming together. You can see our makeshift countertop on the island! We used an extra piece of wood wrapped in plastic so we could finally have a surface to prepare food on. It worked really well!
We actually lived in the house with just a stove and a fridge for 3 months. No sink, no counters and no cabinets. It was awful but it’s true what they say – it has made me appreciate our new kitchen so much more!
Yay for countertops! These are made of quartz in the colour Super White since (if you can’t tell) we really like white 🙂 The countertops make this already bright kitchen feel even more bright. Our plan is to add pops of colour to break up all the white and wood. I’m currently on the hunt for some cute yellow dishtowels and I’m already loving these barstools!
Things we still need to finish:
- Install the hood vent (it’s half done but still needs to be completed)
- Pick out and install backsplash tile
- Install window trim
