house tour tuesday

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.

    do you also have a matching set of dog bowls that say “Dustin” for when he makes you angry?

  3. I agree on you should have kept those cats. I hope you can live with the regret. πŸ˜‰
