I am so excited to finally be fixing / finishing our farmhouse kitchen. If you have followed us for a while you know that it has been a huge struggle and huge task to fix this house. You can see part of the story here.
Below is a before and some of the during and some of the progress.
We have decided to go with a sleek and modern take on the farmhouse kitchen. We will be using matte black cabinets from Ikea and do a pretty white concrete countertop from Z Counterform. We got black appliances (so sick of the stainless steel) and because it will be dark lower cabinets and appliances I think a pretty white concrete countertop would be PERFECT!
We will put white subway tile all the way up the wall and have a compost and a regular trashcan! Super excited about that!
Before – Darkest room ever. They had a weird room for their fireplace which was basically wasted space and this weird header into the living room. We opened it all up and decided we wanted to make this the kitchen. Our plan for the house is to have families and community over for farm dinners and a lot of ministry. So a big open and welcoming space is a must!
The crazy renovation mess. We have totally changed this whole house!
We added lots of windows to help create natural light and painted the walls white. No more dragon dungeon here!
We worked with Metrie who donated the shiplap to our project. We added shiplap in the living room, pantry, stairs and will add them some on the kitchen island!
