It’s finally done! It took WAY longer than expected, but we are very happy with our new kitchen.


BEFORE: (really bad phone pics)

my little two man demo crew – they were so excited to have permission to bust open the walls!

old pantry-so much wasted space because you could really only get to the parts behind the doors, the sides behind the walls were black holes. BTW, the doors were not dirty, the previous homeowner had put a glaze on them which just made them LOOK dirty.

And AFTER!!!

Subway tile backsplash in a herringbone pattern.


The countertops are soapstone –  a black matte finish with sparse white veins.  Cabinet paint color is Benjamin Moore Dove White.

New fixture over breakfast table.  You can also see the wood planking we put on the walls in there where there used to be wallpaper.

New Pantry – so much more functional
