Our kitchen was featured in a post on 50 kitchen cabinet ideas!
While the girls and I were away in sunny Arizona, Jim was busy figuring out how to plank a ceiling and build a faux beam for our kitchen!
As I’ve said before, I’m a terrible DIY blogger. Try as I might, I’m just not good with step by step photos and instructions- But, nevertheless! Jim did come through with some details for those of you who might ask…so I’ve included them a little farther down in this post 🙂
(I’m just the designer. He’s the make it happener.) ((I was going to say executioner…but that ain’t right))
I don’t know about you, but I’m in LOVE with it!
Here are a couple of progress pictures…..
And Jim’s comments:
And here are a few pictures of the beam up close, so you can really see what the ceiling looks like!
And here is a shot from our newly updated dining room…which will be getting it’s own set of posts (how to add shiplap for CHEAP + a full reveal!) hopefully in the next few weeks!
And just for fun, here is where we started! This picture was taken on moving day(…or possibly the day after)
And here is our kitchen today!
So that is our kitchen! I think we are officially done in this room for quite a while now. We checked off most of the things on our 2017 house goals list for this room, so now we can focus on some other spaces for a while!
(Jim was going to surprise me by installing the IKEA farmhouse sink we had in our old kitchen because I LOVED it and miss it so much- but unfortunately it doesn’t fit in our current space. So, we’re keeping the sink we have!)
You can read some other kitchen related posts right here: the kitchen island, the corner cabinet, as is home tour, before and after home tour….or you can always search “kitchen” in the search bar over to the right OR click on the “Our Home” tab at the top of the page!
