Boy, I feel like this post has been a long time coming! As a matter of fact, it has! I have wanted a white kitchen for as long as we’ve lived in this house, nearly 5 years! It wasn’t exactly something I was willing to take on by myself, so I was thrilled when I started dating my sweetie, and it was something he was willing to take on and complete with me! Why did I want a white kitchen so bad? Because it was the only part of the house that just didn’t fit. My entire house has a very neutral, white- centered design and the kitchen cabinets were maple. Yes, maple cabinets, hideous white bathroom backsplash and an even more hideous green countertop. It could be worse, but this was pretty bad!
Our kitchen is the center of our home and where we spend a good bit of our time. We are constantly hosting family gatherings, dinners and birthdays throughout the year, so the kitchen is the main hangout spot. I was dying for it to blend in with the rest of the house! And after countless months, my dreams began to come true! We started our #farmhousechicblogreno! Bye-bye maple cabinets and hello white beauty!
If you follow along with me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the inspiration board pic I created and shared not too long ago. If not, here’s what I’ve based my kitchen design off of.
Here’s a run through of what we will be doing: painting the cabinets white, adding crown molding, building a custom range hood, white subway tile backsplash, new countertops, shiplap island and eat-in dining wall, painting walls and trim and updated lighting.
I will be sharing more details as we complete them! I hope that you will follow along with me for my exciting kitchen renovation!
