D-Day…2 weeks away!

Good Morning! Following up from my last post…our kitchen remodel project is well under way! I have completed the planning and designing stage…

The cabinets have been ordered…the appliances have been ordered…and Demo Day is just two weeks away! I must admit…it is a little bit daunting, thinking about packing up the entire kitchen and being displaced for a few weeks. Yet, I know it will all be worth it!
As shared on Instagram…my inspiration photos include white cabinets, distressed wood floors, a farm house sink, and subway tile. If I had to select just one photo it would be this one…
Drop dead gorgeous kitchen...
My wood floors will be lighter, and I am still unsure of countertop material. I LOVE the look of marble as shown above…yet a little wary on using it for my own kitchen. After reading a lot of info…I will be shopping granite/marble sites this week. Currently pricing out the arched window…love it…want it!
One detail I know for sure…I will be using gold/brass accents. Purchased a few of these knobs already…
Mother-Of-Pearl Knob #anthropologie....like jewelry for the kitchen
And pinned this light fixture to hang over my round table in the nook…
Hinkley Charlotte 16" Wide Brushed Caramel Pendant -
So many details…so little time!


  1. I cannot wait Laura!! That kitchen is one of my all-time favorites!

  2. Oooh...cannot wait to see it all come together. It will be fabulous!

  3. Wahoo!!! I can't wait to see this come together - so exciting!

  4. I'm so excited for you! I just finished up my own DIY kitchen remodel and blogged about it this week. I used lots of white and I love it! Check out Glacier White as a granite color. It is what I chose because I loved marble but it isn't as forgiving as granite. You can look at my post if you want to see it in my kitchen.

    I look forward to seeing your progress.


  5. Oops! Was signed in under my husband's account on the above comment. Inviting you to look at my Glacier White granite on my latest blog post.

  6. Very exciting Laura! I'm going to live vicariously through you on this project since I'm itching (and trying to be patient) to renovate our kitchen. What did you decide for your counters? We had granite in our last house and I would do it again in a different color. And I love your light fixture that you have shown above - what did you decide on lighting? So many fun decisions - hope all is going well with the project.
