Almost there!

We are in the final stretch! One of the most stressful, but exciting things about the home is that we had a chance to pick out everything! Some of the decisions we made were the following:

– Shaker style cabinets; we struggled with the paint color – we originally went with accessible grey by Sherwin Williams and switched to white since it complimented the granite; you can see all the different colors we were considering below!

– Granite: Super White in the kitchen and Moonlight in the bathrooms; we went to several different granite yards, but this was our favorite by far!

– Subway tiles in the kitchen with a chevron back splash behind the stove

– Hot water dispenser by the sink: I love me some hot tea so we had to add one by the faucet 🙂

– Built in desk in an old closet

– Chef’s Kitchen – Michael wanted a HUGE Island! it’s 8 ft x 4.4 ft.

You need to use your imagination here…

I saw a lot of potential with the home.. the “bones” of the home were great (bedrooms were a good size, wood flooring, etc.), but when I saw the kitchen, I was really terrified.  Michael reassured me that it could really turn into something and of course, I trust him! And after watching hours of HGTV and hundreds of pages of magazines later, I can tell you I am SO EXCITED about the potential here. Here are some of our before photos. All you need to do is.. just use your imagination 🙂
