The kitchen overhaul at my in-laws is almost complete!!
There are still a couple layers missing, but I couldn't resist sharing the progress...
From vinyl to wood floors!!
It's so clean and elegant. It completely captures my Mother-in-laws style. Please excuse the "real world counter display"... these photos were taken during a bridal shower.
***Notice we still need the window trim installed and some window treatments***
These wooden canisters were made by George Dame, my husband's Grandfather, who spent hours each day in his wood shop creating all sorts of wooden master pieces. We all have several pieces made by George throughout our homes, whether they are wooden step stools, wooden baby toys, sculptural bowls, and canisters like you see above, they're all special and they remind us of him and his favorite hobby.
George passed away before my daughter was born, but he made sure to make several toys for his future great grandchildren. He gave them to his son, my husband's father, to keep and to be given as gifts to his great grandchildren once they were born. How thoughtful is that??
This is what the kitchen used to look like...
The pantry went from being a closet with bi-fold doors to a built-in cabinet.... now there is much more storage surrounding the refrigerator...
SO much better isn't it??? I have to admit this project was mostly an internet project for me. I simply guided my MIL through all of the decision making and helped her pick out the finishes. The final layers will be more hands-on. I can't wait!
We still have to add the finishing touches and I have a feeling I will be working on the back splash someday soon! I'm not gonna lie kids, I love to tile!!
More to come soon!!
