Kitchen Remodel Update


Hey friends! I hope you had a fabulous July 4th weekend. We didn’t do anything big…ate some burgers and set off a few fireworks in our driveway after baby went to bed. Pretty low key. Maybe next year we will venture to the lake to watch the fireworks show. I found out this past week it ranks like 24th in the nation?! I will say, we’ve been a few times and it never disappoints.

Anyway….I thought I would give you an update on the kitchen progress. It’s been slow my friends….super slow. On the 10th of June my kitchen looked like this…

A few hours later after the counter tops and backsplash were removed, it looked like this…

The 80’s looking tile is gone and I can’t wait to replace it with white subway tile!

But before that can happen I need my new counter tops. So… those are finally going to be installed this Friday. Hallelujah! I knew remodeling a kitchen would require some inconveniences…I did. No sink, no water, no counters. I got this. I thought maybe a couple weeks of lots of paper plates and some dishes in the bathroom sink…but it will be a MONTH people!

I’ve been itching to paint my cabinets too but I decided it’s best to wait until everyone is done installing. So….I wait. Patiently? Not so much. 😉

But on a positive note, I installed my new apron sink and I can’t wait to show you that along with a full tutorial on how I did it! Do you remember my inspiration board for this space that I shared in this post? I know I’m going to love using this new deep sink….so stinkin’ excited. Come on Friday! I told my husband once those counters are installed, I’m going to climb up on them and give them the biggest hug ever!

Have you experienced a kitchen remodel before? How long were you forced to be “patient”?




  1. Lol, I was kinda expecting to see before and after pics, but it just got worse! Lol!! It will all be so worth it when you’re done!!! I would love if we could redo our kitchen, but our worst problem is that it is just too small. Thanks for sharing this at the Family Joy Linkup!

  2. Fun times – this all looks REALLY familiar right now, we are doing a facelift on our kitchen as well. Subway tile all the way baby! 🙂

  3. I love posts like these and can’t wait to see how your kitchen turns out! Thanks so much for sharing with us at Share The Wealth Sunday! I hope you’ll share the rest of the remodeling posts too!

  4. We completely gutted our kitchen 8 years ago. It was such a huge project but well worth it. Things seem to be coming along for you!

    Thanks for sharing (and for linking up to the #SHINEbloghop).

    Wishing you a lovely evening.

  5. Ours is at a standstill. I’m dying to get it done. You a little further than us at this point. Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight party. Shared.

    1. Hi Sam! I actually didn’t write up a tutorial on how I modified the kitchen sink cabinets for the apron sink. So sorry!!
