We are the Proud Owners of a New Kitchen and New Bathroom!

Here is the REAL kitchen and bathroom update!  That previous post, well, let’s just say that my trigger finger got the best of me.  🙂

Yes, everyone! The day has finally come for me to share the finished kitchen and bathroom! It has been a long and crazy few months, but we made it in tact and came out on the other side a million times happier. If that is even possible!

I definitely do not want to bog you down with any more about the downside of living through construction, but I want to go right i to sharing our new spaces! With a little before and after recap.

I am so happy, as you might imagine, to be back in my home cooking and spaced out like a normal family again. Missing out on cooking had been my biggest sadness through it all, and I literally kissed my new stove when I was able to clean it. Heh yep, imma big nut.

We are still not at 100% on this project..the heater needs to be installed in the kitchen, the stainless chute for the vent has to be made and installed, the glass windows have to be put into the dining room cabinets, and I am still under a lot of mess from unpacking and cleaning.  So these are the best photos I could take today while a mess. (sorry!)

Ok, so let us go down memory lane.  Here are some memories of the former glorious kitchen (that is some sarcasm)…

BEFORE (this is now where my dishwasher is!)

THE BEFORE- this is where my new fridge is!

THE BEFORE- This is now where my new oven is!

This door has moved, and this is now a bank of cabinets.

Remember this table?  IT IS ALL GONE!

Remember this built in table?!

THE BEFORE- this wall is so gone, and the memories will soon fade.. heh

THE DINING ROOM BEFORE- The wall.

THE BEFORE- What an ugly bathroom!

We made a lot of memories in that space.  They were all the best a family could make, but the space was just so unsighlty and not functional for a family like mine.  Which is why we did all this work.  From October to now we gutted everything to the studs, rebuilding it all and switching around the space.  A lot of work went into these spaces that you can’t visually even see…which is the fun part of home renovations when your house is over 100 yrs old.

Now here is the new Kitchen…

You ready?

THE KITCHEN AFTER-  I am standing exactly where the photo above shows the wall with the door opening in the old dining room.  Amazing right? Ok except the old table!  Don't look at that!

We went with a gray washed cherry cabinet here.  To break up the space and to define it as a dining china cabinet.

Ohhhh, and the new flooring in the bathroom! A real fun porcelain tile that sort of looks like the one in our master bathroom. Love this!

And.. the door of the new bathroom.  Can't see it from the kitchen anymore!  yes!
