Sneak Peek of our Kitchen
I am so thankful for all the comments and well wishes you have given me over the past six months. Many of those comments have lifted my spirits during the long kitchen renovation process. Your belief in me has truly allowed me to take on projects I would have probably shied away from.
After 6.5 months, we finally unpacked our boxes and officially moved back into the kitchen. The plumber hooked up our sink and dishwasher on Tuesday. It was a milestone for us. My boys (young and adult) acted as if the kitchen sink was a thing of wonder.
As a thank you for helping me through the process of building our kitchen back after the leak, I’m giving you a little sneak peek of the progress. It’s not complete, but I feel like I owe you this little video preview:

Just gorgeous! I especially love your counter top. That is just what I would use. I’m not a fan of granite. Seriously, aren’t you going to be just a little bit tempted to yellow tape the doors after it is finished to keep everyone out? lol
Wow, it’s been a long road for sure, but you have been transforming it into such a beautiful space! I can’t wait to see the finished kitchen.
It looks mahvalous dahling! Really love your counters since I dislike granite. Great job cant wait to see the full reveal.
It’s so fun to see if looking like a kitchen — and a lovely kitchen at that! Woohoo, so happy for you!
Ahhh its coming together! I love the video Brittany! I can’t wait to see the finished kitchen!
Remodeling is such a fun thing to share with others, and it looks great.
I love the video. Thanks for taking the time to show what you did.
It’s gorgeous! I love the two-toned cabinets and the bling that you chose. One question – what is the “appliance” to the left of the coffee station? Looks like a water dispenser? So excited that your kitchen reno is coming to an end so we can see the final product and (more importantly) you get your kitchen back.
Mandy, thank you for your kind comment. The appliance is a bottom fed water cooler. It uses the same 5 gallon jugs, but they fit in the base. It’s safer and less obtrusive. We also really like having it so the kids can get fresh water whenever they like (a bonus after my son was hospitalized for dehydration.)
Can’t wait to see the finished product!
Will you share the paint color for the cabinets? We also went with white appliances as I felt they were timeless, but now I can’t decide on the cabinet colors. White or color? Thanks for the information and what a beautiful kitchen.
Martha, Thank you for the reminder. I added it to the post. But the color is Sherwin Williams Copen Blue. And as you know, you can have both ;-D White & Blue for the win!
I thought it said “David Cassidy Touch20 faucet”. Anyway, you and I are going through the same procedure at the same time; I’m getting my kitchen redone too! Hope it all works out for both of us. I like the colors so far, and we’ve only had one major argument, but there’s still time for more. I’ll send some photos too, once I have something to show. I particularly like your hardware pulls, they are so cool…I’m getting cork floors put in too!
Linda, LOL David Cassidy faucet! I hope your renovation goes smoother than ours. And YES, please send me pictures. I think you are going to love the cork floors ;-).
Great kitchen ideas! If I had a $ for every time you said “UM” it would pay for mine! Ha! Love your Blog you crack me up!
It’s so beautiful, Brittany! I love the counter tops and the tops of the cabinets. The two toned cabinets and mis-matched knobs bring so much character and charm to the kitchen. And I LOVE that pendant light as well as all of the extra lighting features. I’d just in the doorway and stare all day.
Yup, I could do that too. Just park it on the cork floors and stare all day ;-D.
Love the colours, the lighting, the sink and faucet, the floors, the counters, the fully extendable drawers oh gosh LOVE it all! All that hard work starting to come to fruition, you must be sooo proud.
Thank you Stacey-Lee. Yes, I do feel like the hard work is finally paying off. 😉
Wow. Everything looks terrific. So many neat ideas. I’ve never seen a faucet like that. Cool. I’d be standing there right with the boys wanting to play with it. What happens when the power goes off? Have to admit I clicked on the link to find out more about it–almost fell off my chair when I saw the price. Great idea, but… Well, lets just say I’ll never see one in my kitchen. Floor looks great. Neat lighting ideas. Thanks for showing us everything.
Cath, the faucet is powered by regular AA batteries. And you don’t have to use the “touch” function. It will work like a regular faucet even when the batteries wear out. Yes, the faucet would definitely be a splurge item for most. I do know that when purchasing faucets, if you cheap out too much, you end up replacing it in a few years when the parts break.
Fantastic. The cup pulls and glass knobs were a wonderful choice. Both the in-cabinet and under cabinet lighting are way cool, especially at night. And the Delta faucet, who doesn’t need one of those. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve needed to turn on the faucet after cutting fish or meat and it turns out to be a challenge.
You have a beautiful kitchen Brittany 🙂
Jeff, yup, totally spoiled by that faucet now. Bring on the messy meals!
