It looks like the big kitchen project is really falling into place. The painter comes on Friday, the beautiful slabs of carrera are waiting at Allen’s shop, the tile backsplash is hanging out in the garage, we have appliances coming this week.
Let’s talk about this kitchen redo, a few of the things will stay the same. I refuse to let go of the Vanilla Bean glaze on the cabinets in exchange for stark white. I thought I’d take you through the process and let you see the changes we are making. I feel like it’s going to look completely different, and I am giddy with excitement.
The biggest change will be the countertops. We’re exchanging the Tropic Brown granite for Carrera Blanco marble. The marble was a huge victory for me, I’ve only been professing my love for white marble to Allen since we were dating. He’s only been telling me no since the first time I asked. Never one to give up on what I love, here we ten years later and my very own marble slabs are just waiting for their new home.
The backsplash is going to go as well. We’ll be switching it our for a gray glazed porcelain tile in a herringbone pattern. We’ll be switching the sink for a farmhouse sink and a new faucet. And the walls will get a fresh coat of paint that matches the paint throughout most of our house.
As far as appliances, we’re replacing the cooktop, but everything else will remain the same.
Of course, the desk area is going to go, and we’ll be adding two new appliances, an ice maker and a wine refrigerator. I mentioned this before, but the desk just isn’t useful to us at all. It is a glorified clutter catcher, and I’m ready to add some function to that space.
I put together a little inspiration board. You can see the colors and the feel I’m going for by looking at the board. We’re slated to put it all in place on our anniversary weekend, I can’t wait to share the progress!
