Let’s start out 2017 with a dramatic before and after shall we? I swore I was never going to go through a kitchen renovation again. Cooking out of the living with a toaster oven was an incredibly stressful experience. When we purchased this new home, I knew I wasn’t going to be able to live with the dark cave like kitchen. It’s hard to see in the photo but the cabinets had a thick layer of grease on them and they were banged up pretty badly. The sink wasn’t centered on the window. There was a horrible drop ceiling that made the room feel really dark and closed in. We decided we needed to create a bright white minimalist kitchen that we would want to cook in!

We are winding down on our home renovations and it feels like the end is in sight! Over the weekend the electrician installed a gorgeous chandelier over the soaking tub in our master bathroom. I’m really happy with the way this space came out, it’s so bright and fresh feeling- much better than the carpeted cave it was before!
If remember my before post, the bathroom was dated. It had carpet, two vanities, a moldy pink shower and no tub.
The major priorities in this space was to knock down the wall separating the shower and vanity and to enclose the door leading from the master bedroom.
Those hexagon floors are one of my favorite things about this bathroom!
We went with a small acrylic chandelier to stay within our budget. It adds some sparkle and glamour above the bath tub.
I’m so happy with this beautiful and functional space! What do you think?

We’ve moved around the master bedroom a bit and I wanted to post an update since I realized I never posted what we did with the room. Here is a photo of how it looked when we purchased the house. Black stains on the carpet, yellow walls and small windows. This isn’t the actual master bedroom but it’s so much larger than the actual master that we decided to move our furniture into here.
Here is the before.
And here is the after!
P built the planters on his own and the grass provides a great area for the girls to play and for us to do some gardening!
