Today I am showing you the kitchen that is finished. The kitchen we have finally perfected. The kitchen that was in my dreams from the get-go.

This is the “before”, or how the kitchen looked when we bought the house.

Then we have the “almost finished” version, where we were exploring our countertop options and wrapping up details.

The biggest change from the pictures, was with the countertops. After it became evident that we would need more reliable/permanent tops, we explored our options and what we could afford.

I really love how the color in the peninsula flows with the dishes in the background.

I left everything the same on my open shelves the hubs built, because I still love the arrangement.

I added a couple of houseplants – which is a first for me. Many of my readers had recommended I add them to my spaces. I am pleased to announce that I have managed to keep them alive for 4 weeks.
