Holy toledo, I can’t believe we did it. You guys, after four loooooong years of slowly fixing up our 1980’s kitchen, I am so happy to say the renovation is FINALLY done. Cue the happy dance and all the jazz hands!!! Eeeek! We just completed the last piece of the puzzle, which was getting a new oven. The one we had was from the previous owners and it was in pretty rough shape. A few of the knobs were broken and then a couple weeks ago it started leaking gas reallllly bad. I honestly though it was going to blow up our house one night when I was attempting to make dinner! We always planned to switch it out for a front control oven when we did the passthrough project a few years ago, but our budget was pretty tight so we decided to hold off. Thankfully, the time has finally come and I’m so excited to share how it looks with you guys today!!
Isn’t she pretty?! Who knew an oven could make me so happy. We actually planned on getting this oven a few years ago when we completed that huge passthrough project (check out this post to see that process) but at the time we just didn’t have it in the budget. I knew a front control oven would look waaaaay better than the one we had, but we had to wait patiently until we could afford it. And even though I’m not the most patient gal in the world, I can say it was definitely worth the wait!
This new oven is the final step in our kitchen renovation project. We have officially updated everything we wanted to in this space and I gotta say–that’s a pretty cool feeling. It took us four years to do it, but we are finally done. From the new quartz countertops, the farmhouse sink, the passthrough, the new tile, and now the new oven. We did it! Here’s what this kitchen looked like when we started:
And how it looks now:
It’s been quite the journey fixing up this little kitchen and I’ve had so much fun taking you all along on that process over these last four years. All the work, time, and energy was definitely worth it because I finally have my cozy little cottage kitchen. It may not be the biggest or the fanciest, but it’s perfect for us and I am so grateful for it! Now I just need to figure out how to be a better cook so I can get my money out of this oven.
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Here are a few other posts on our kitchen renovation process:
