The Seven Year Itch: Kitchen Renovation Part I

While cooking in my impossibly small kitchen in my first home, I often fantasized about how nice it would be to prepare meals in the beautiful chic chef’s kitchen that I would own “one day”.

Well… my husband and I bought a house seven years ago and although it had many elements that we loved, the kitchen was not one of them.  We agreed to purchased the house and I was promised that we would update the kitchen.   At that time I believed that we would get started on the kitchen right away.   However, we actually got started on something else when we moved in… less than a year later I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and a few years after that…and a basement project later, we welcomed another happy and healthy daughter.

Seven long years in a kitchen with outdated appliances and peeling cabinets.  Seven long years dreaming of a gas cook top.  Seven long years of stalking beautiful kitchens on Pintrest.

 

 

 

Well the kitchen is now complete!  I could not be happier.  So let’s take look back at how we began the process, survived the renovation and everything we learned along the way.

 

Stay tuned.
