kitchen reveal part 1

 The kitchen re-do is finished  - I am just waiting for one light fixture to arrive for over the kitchen table.  I won't keep you waiting any longer.  It was not a great day for taking photos for me, it was dreary and raining.  The lighting wasn't great so the pictures are a little on the dark side.  The kitchen shows much better in the sun light.  Rather then postpone putting up this post I tried my best to get some decent photos for you.  I will be doing a more in depth post next week with all the info in detail. For now at least you can see what I have been up to these last couple of weeks.

 here is the kitchen space before

 here is what it looks like after spending...

floor $300
concrete counter $100
hanging wall cupboard $75
shelf $20
farm table & bench $200
shelving $10
towel rack $18
fabric for curtains $8
paint & supplies $50
counter stool $52
thrift store extras $20

our intentions were to purchase some used light fixtures as well, only

generously donated the lighting

this made the grand total of the kitchen re-do come in at



it was a lot of hard work and we needed to use many of the resources that we had on hand.  We could not have not done it all without the generous help of Megan's Father in law and our Carpenter John. (especially taking down that scary ceiling fan)  Megan also allowed me to move the refrigerator into the mud room off the kitchen which gave the area needed space.  Plus she had lots of very cool accessories that I pulled from different rooms in her home and used them to accessorize the kitchen.

this is what the kitchen looks like now

the new look is sort of
 organic industrial farmhouse

I will have part two posted soon, hopefully with better lighting.  I am also going to give you  step by step instructions to creating your own industrial farm table base from parts that you can purchase at a plumbing supply store.  It is easy and affordable - plus it only takes about 15 minutes to put together.  Have a great weekend,  Lori
