Hi!

Welcome to my blog where I document projects involving home renovation, staging and design.

ORC Kitchen Remodel Week 6: Finale!

ORC Kitchen Remodel Week 6: Finale!

Though we may have had a few bouts of dehydration and fatigue, we've actually crossed the finish line (even if we barely stumbled over it)!

I will save the lengthy project details for another post, and simply present you with a multitude of images to feast your eyes on.

First, let me remind you of "the BEFORE" (My apologies for the grainy listing picture and weird "right after we moved in, and used a card table as our kitchen table" picture - I loathed taking photos in the kitchen prior to the remodel and therefore, have no good images to share).

Before you scroll down to the next, oh so good, part of this post, I want remind you that we did not go full reno on this space (YET). Since we wanted to stay under 5k, do everything ourselves, and do so in the short, 6 week time period between jobs, kids, other home projects and life obligations, we kept the stove, oven, cabinets and basic layout (FOR NOW).

So, without further ado, I present you with, "the AFTER..."

We are absolutely in love with our kitchen now that the remodel is complete! So expect to see a barrage of photos on my social media pages- I can already see myself posing in a lounging position on that luxurious Pakistani rug : ) 

I have to give a huge thank you to Linda of Calling It Home and House Beautiful Magazine for hosting and Sponsoring the challenge- they definitely helped my husband and I kick our remodeling game into high gear. AND I must also thank my husband, Niles Rath, for being my partner in crime in all of these projects (he's the better half of this team and deserves some major props for pulling all nighters with me, all the while working a very demanding job-love you babe!). Now head over to the pages of the other One Room Challenge bloggers stat (by clicking here and here) to see their full room transformations-trust me, you don't want to miss it!
