Back on Labor Day weekend I ordered new kitchen countertops and you guys–they FINALLY got installed this week! Talk about a long wait, right?! I’ve been so excited for this day and I can’t wait to show you how they look. It totally changed the whole vibe of this space. Ok I have a lot of photos to share, so let’s start with a quick look at what the kitchen looked like right after were moved in (and after we changed out the floors).
And then how they looked this summer:
And here’s how it looks now, with the new countertops:
What a change, right?! It’s amazing how this seemingly small change made such a huge difference in the feel of our kitchen. It not only looks bigger, but it feels so much bigger too. I love it. This is a soft white quartz with light gray and gold veins.
It’s been a lot of fun to slowly take this builder grade house and turn it into something that feels more like us. I was doing a Q&A on Instagram stories last night and someone asked why I didn’t just choose countertops I loved from the start. Totally fair question! But we didn’t find this house until it was about 95% complete, so we had no choices at all when it came to finishes, layout, or design. And the truth is I was never crazy about the house. My husband and I really wanted the land and privacy that came with this 10 acre lot, so we went for it, know we’d change things over time. And I’ve actually enjoyed that process! It’s been awesome to see this place evolve in the last 18 months.
Well thanks so much for dropping by the blog today. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
