After three years and lots of budgeting, we are finally at a point with our kitchen where I feel good enough about it to show you some photos!  I hope to release a cost estimate within the next couple of weeks, so you can get an idea of the expenses for your own kitchen facelifts ;)  Ultimately this is a rental kitchen, so I’m doing what I like with what I have and I hope you can do the same!

Where are my “Before Kitchen Photos?”

Well here are some “semi-before” shots….the kitchen was gutted before I had the thought to take photos, so these photos happened after fridge re-arranging, wall addition and some Ikea Kitchen furniture purchasing (Ikea kitchen furnishings provided by our wonderful landlords):


Thanks for stopping by!

    Thanks AnnMarie ;) I bought the butcher block at Ikea….the name of it is Lamplig. I use it upside down FYI (if you go on Ikea website it is rightside up)
