As I write this, I am sitting in my sun-filled kitchen (that is a total mess, by the way) and just thinking about how far it has come. Have you been following along from the beginning? Here is the first post I ever wrote about renovating this house. But it isn’t until now that I sat down and really looked at the before and after pictures side by side. It is so exciting! Most people say that renovating a house is super stressful. I think it has been blissful! I’d do it again….. just wait until you see the photos!
The kitchen has roughly the same layout, oh, except for that wall that divided it from the living room. And the weird corner pantry.
So we reconfigured the entire layout of the kitchen, took down that wall, and made it into my dream kitchen.
Now we have the most fantastic area to sit and entertain. I have found a new zest for cooking, which I had lost at the apartment. And because of the open floor plan, we always know where each other is in the house. It’s a big house but it feels less large when you know where your family is.
I have great news that my curtains have arrived. I will get on hanging those in the next week or so, so you can see them. I am really excited about making this whole space come together.
Hopefully I will have enough more unpacked to show you another space. I think you will really enjoy seeing my game room. It is a true family space!
