home tour: kitchen

This week's room for our home tour is the kitchen.

We finished this renovation for under $3,500 (not including appliances) but spent nearly 9 months DIYing. We did a complete gut and remodel including handmade custom cabinets, beadboarded ceiling, replaced electrical & lighting, refinished floors (under layers of laminate & glue), tiled backsplash, handmade kitchen island, and updated trim work.

Cabinets: Kiel went with open cabinets on top (a wisely devised plan to limit my hoarding of dishes), and flush soft close cabinets on & a few drawers for the bottom- the perks of being married to a wood worker= an entire kitchen worth of cabinets at cost of wood & paint

Door: the door going into the basement was the perfect place for us to add chalkboard- a place to keep grocery lists or write notes to one another- or a reminder to others to not let the cats out!

Kitchen Island: created with metal piping & our leftover butcher block after the counters were installed. We fitted the island with old wire baskets to increase storage
