Alright, here goes! The FINAL reveal of my new farmhouse kitchen!
I’m IN LOVE with how it turned out! It’s just the look I was going for, it matches the old part of our kitchen very well and above all, it feels like home!
However, I wasn’t so “IN LOVE” with the process…
Tearing down walls…very old, almost “sacred” walls.
But we’ve added new life to these walls to hopefully last a lifetime! The beam here holds the weight of the second floor and beyond it is the new addition. You can see the original cabinets and shelving stayed put during the reno.
Progress was so encouraging! I would just stand in my unfinished house for what seemed like hours, planning, admiring and imagining it all in it’s final beauty.
Lucky for you, I have photos so you don’t have to play the imagination game!
Here she is!
I chose large drawers for the lower cabinets to tie into the existing kitchen. I also chose to do some glass cabinets up top because I wanted to have full storage but didn’t want to weigh down the new end of the kitchen since the rest of the kitchen has open shelving. I think it balances very well!
We added subway tile and had our original butcher block countertops matched!
Beautiful, hand-crafted countertops and original cabinet pulls.
Statement lighting above the island! I shopped around forever but couldn’t let this one go! Edison bulbs have my heart!
I love the mixed materials, the new and old, the white and the black…contrast is beautiful!
Huge shout-out to Nathan Hyke of Wood Customs Cabinets & Furniture for making all of my design dreams a reality! Simply outstanding work, Nathan!
Nathan worked some miracles in this kitchen! Somehow he was able to match our existing butcher block countertops to blend seamlessly into the new addition. He of course did an amazing job on all of our cabinetry but my favorite piece has to be the antique-inspired hutch. I decided to have Nathan build a hutch for me instead of trying to find one to fit the space. It looks old and rustic (obviously my favorite look on earth) but the interior is brand new with modern pull-out storage! AMAZING!
I have only good things to say about EVERY SINGLE PERSON that helped make this renovation possible! Even our friends and family! 😉
