The Kind of Family Who Makes Cinnamon Rolls

By |October 6th, 2014|

When I showed you the kitchen reveal last week, I showed you how it really looks 90% of the time… Something about it–the mess, the kids, the Nana rolling out dough.  It makes me happy.  And I want to be the kind of family that makes homemade Cinnamon Rolls.   Ree’s glorious, buttery, […]

Kitchen Reveal

By |September 29th, 2014|

It seems like half a lifetime ago when I first mentioned working on the kitchen.  The bulk of the work was done in a couple of weeks, but we took our time finding the right hardware and breadboards and you know, the important things.

Waaay back in the day of 2003-2009ish, our kitchen looked like this […]

Clearing Out The Rest, & Upcoming Photo Shoots

By |September 16th, 2014|

Remember that time when I foolishly said I’d be completely organized in 3 months??

Well, needless to say that was a bit idealistic.  I will say, however, we continued all spring and summer to purge and organize, purge and organize.  I think we’ve covered everything minus one closet (that’s partially done) and the garage.  Because we […]

Reclaimed Wood Shelving & The Backsplash

By |July 31st, 2014|

The kitchen is mostly done, with only some lighting and decor left to install.  Counters are in, cabinets are in, and just a week or two ago, we finished the backsplash & some open reclaimed wood shelving over the desk area.

I’m in love with how it’s all turning out.  We went with basic white subway […]

Speaking of my favorite white paint color, here is a peek of the kitchen progress…

As you can see, the process isn’t quite finished, but we are getting close.  I wanted to share a little sneak peek with you here…I’m in love, love with the simple shaker-style cabinet doors and how clean it all feels with […]

Marble Counters

By |July 3rd, 2014|

The last time I showed  you our kitchen, this is where things stood…

Things have moved along mostly well, with a couple of snags here and there.  The cabinets were installed early last week, and we were able to start filling some of them.

Hello blissful organizing excitement.

And now, there are counters…

And I am in love with […]

Kitchen Demolition

By |June 13th, 2014|

It’s zero dark thirty here and I’m up, piddling around in my gutted kitchen.  I made the first cup of coffee in the laundry room, and cleaned up more trash.  My brain couldn’t shut down or stay shut down, rather, so up I came.

I secretly love (and hate) those mornings when […]
