It may seem like I’ve fallen off the renovation planet, but in fact I have been hard at work putting some finishing touches together to wrap up my kitchen project! The biggest change was the installation of drywall on the walls where formerly stood nothing but studs!
With the installation of the drywall that means I am ready for BACKSPLASH!!! In fact I am having them installed on Thursday with the supervision of DesignMom! I am so so so excited! Behold:
I think it should look AMAZING when it is done! I love the simplicity of the white subway tile. It’s classic, clean and most importantly it is timeless. I don’t want someone to be able to walk into this project a few years from now and be able to pin the date of the remodel based on my finishes. Talk about a Renolista’s worst nightmare!
In addition I also spent some time ordering window coverings which I blogged about earlier in the process. I finally decided on a color combination I think will fit in nicely…
The last bit of my shopping spree included a rather…. spendy purchase. This Renolista is the proud owner of some new Restoration Hardware light fixtures! Not only did I purchase a few for the kitchen, but I also picked up a fixture for my patio. If I’m already spending the money on shipping I may as well indulge, right?? I LOVE the look of exposed filament bulbs and the industrial minimal look will fit right in with the rest of the design (according to DesignMom that is… )
For the kitchen:
And for the backyard:
Once the backsplash is up I will finally be able to install the over the range microwave and the project will be close to completion! This reno has been so much fun, so much work but overall the most rewarding part of my home buying experience! I can’t wait to see the end product!! My updated list of things to complete after the installation of my recent purchases, backsplash and microwave:
- finish the toe kick
- install new base
- finish patio door surround
- replace cabinet pulls
- refinish cabinets with wear
- paint and decorate!
