I know. I am terrible at showing off house progress. So much has happened, and I’m sure I will forget half of it. It’s so strange to look back at photos from when we first moved in.
Kitchen + back porch then:
What we’ve done:
Ripped up laminate flooring; patched + refinished original hardwoods
Painted cabinets; replaced hardware
Removed dropped ceiling + lighting; installed new ceiling, recessed lighting, and two pendants over the sink
Installed new butcher block counter tops
New refrigerator; new microwave
New cast iron sink + faucet + backsplash
What we plan to do:
Hang art [we’re thinking of framing some of Elliot’s finger paintings to add color]
Drywall the back porch
Install new windows on the back porch
Install countertop over the washer + dryer
Build personal cubbies for our bags, shoes, coats, etc. on the back porch.
Remove the door separating the kitchen + back porch
New back door
Possibly re-do the kitchen again. We aren’t sure exactly how long we’ll be in this house. We feel like we need to be absolutely sure we’re staying for a long time before sinking a ton of money in the kitchen. Current thoughts: kitchen probably won’t be happening. We hate humidity.
