Happy Saturday friends! On behalf of my friend Kara (who is the one who gets to live in the gorgeous new spaces I’ve been showing you!) and myself we’d like to say a big huge THANK YOU for all of your lovely comments the past two days!
This was such a long process for Kara and her husband Caleb but he got to go to work each day while she, on the other hand, was living in the midst of chaos while their home was being remodeled. Oh and they have 5 kids. She deserves a trophy don’t you think? 😉
Today we’re sharing with you the changes made to the rest of the kitchen along with the family room.
After coming through the front door and through the entry you would have to turn right and then go through another door to get to the kitchen and family room.
Here is how it looked BEFORE
At the last minute Kara decided to have this cabinet built to like a free-standing piece. And then on a whim she decided to have it painted this gorgeous shade of blue instead of the white used in the rest of the kitchen.
Isn’t it AMAZING?!! It is seriously my most favorite part of the kitchen!
This is a homeschooling family so the addition of workspace was a MUST and having two desks means an easier school day for kids and mama both.
There was great debate about whether or not to paint the brick surrounding the fireplace.
But ultimately they decided to not to paint it but to have a beautiful custom mantel made instead.
The backs of the bookcases were painted white which completely lightened up this wall.
The rooster pillow is the perfect nod to this family’s new life in this home.
And everywhere you look you see signs of how much they have embraced a reality that is far better than any of their dreams.
So what do you think so far? Did you get a chance to see the kitchen makeover?
How about the front door and entry transformation?
Be sure to come back next week when we’ll share the final room in this home renovation.
Have a fantastic weekend friends!
