Apron Strings

Do you remember when I shared that we were re-doing our kitchen?  Yeah, I understand if you don't- that was back in August.  


Some before shots
Who doesn't love painted wood paneling paired with fake marble?



During

We re-did, re-moved, re-placed everything but the floors, dish washer, recessed lighting, and kitchen table.  Other than installing the appliances and counter-tops, we did all the work ourselves. 

I was a very silly girl to think the project would take two weeks! It was clean and functionally by the time school started in September, but it was pretty yet.  We finished putting the finishing touches on the night before our Thanksgiving guests arrived.
All the photos were taken at night, sorry- I couldn't wait. 



                                 
  






 My six hours of baking sure were more fun in the new, pretty kitchen.


I'll show off some of the special little details next week.

Leigh- your kitchen is beautiful! Y'all did an awesome job. I love the spice rack-shelf by the stove, the under cabinet lights (jealous!) and the low consoles under the windows. Can't wait to see more details!

I am 100 percent dying over your kitchen, Leigh.

Dy-ing.

I've decided that I want your exact kitchen. Exact. I love it all. Can't wait to see more of the details. I already enlarged every one of your photos to check them out. The cabinets are gorgeous. I love the backsplash. I'm trying to figure out what the counters are. Just love. Everything is gorgeous.

Oh, yeah. And, I'm obsessed with the shelf for spices. I may recreate this, too. =)
