One Room Challenge: Week Three



If you missed my other posts click below.
 
 
 
 Before I spill the beans on week three I have to give a BIG shout out to Andrew Lam who popped over and took these pictures today. He was soooo nice to take time out of his busy day to do this for me. And he totally nailed it! Thanks Andrew!!
 
Also I have to thank my client who has let me take pictures and pop in whenever I feel like it and a special thanks to the contractors who (let's face it) did all of the real hard work here, so...
 
Okay, onto week three--the kitchen is almost finished. Complete with white shaker style cabinetry, marble counter tops, black island with marble counter tops, a cozy window seat and a whole lot more.
 
The magic is really in the transformation. Doesn't even resemble the previous kitchen! Let's revisit the before...
 
BEFORE
 
 
 
 
Now here's the after... you might want to sit down for this.
 
 
Whaaaat????????? Here's more...
 
 
 
 
 
 
Looks even better than I imagined. Can't wait for all of the finishing touches:)
 
And onto the eating area  -- not much progress here. You can see where the navy and white striped chairs are going-- or maybe by the fireplace? haven't really decided yet.
 
 
Speaking of the striped chairs... here's a sneak peek. I can barely contain my excitement!!
 

Crazy bold! Too bold?? Hell to the no!
 
Thanks for reading!

Next week I'm gonna share the good, the bad and the ugly of this first floor reno. So keep tuning in!!
 
and
 
Pop on over to Calling it Home to see the other participants and their fabulous progress!!

  3. That kitchen is GORGEOUS!! I love a classic white kitchen! And I absolutely LOVE the navy and white striped chairs... so fabulous! I think you need to come over and finish our kitchen and family room when you are done... this is the exact look I'm going for, and you are much speedier than my contractor! :)

    XOXO,
