Kitchen in Progress

Here's a quick update on the house! I've been a little behind on blogging recently because we've been busy spending time with friends, cheering on the Blackhawks (Go Hawks!), and studying for the GMAT.

We plan on gutting the entire kitchen and completely renovating it in the next few years, but we just had to get it livable for the time being. You'll see why in the following pictures!

Here are some before pictures of our awesome retro kitchen. Brace yourself.

Beautiful isn't it? This was the one room that scared me most when deciding to purchase the house- would you blame me?

Here are a few pictures of the kitchen in progress......

We took out that awkward cabinet covered in floral wallpaper and drywalled the hole. We painted this wall "Feather Down" from Benjamin Moore but I haven't taken any pictures of that side of the room yet :)

Here are some additional "in progress" pictures that show a tiny bit of light at the end of the tunnel. We need to put up trim, put in a new floor, and finish some final touches....but we're almost there!

p.s. the light in these pictures isn't the best but you can get the idea.....

we're missing a set of hinges...they're in the mail as we speak!

ahhhhh, now I can relax. No mirrors and no carpet in the kitchen.


  1. I must say you had a doozie of a kitchen and you've done a great job with it. You might enjoy seeing the kitchen feature we have today since you've been in the "soup." Happy New Year. Jane

  2. Lookin' good, can't wait for the final reveal, hope you link up for that!
