Kitchen Remodel Details {Before & After}

I am so very, very, VERY excited to be sharing this post with y’all today. It’s truly been a long time coming, a full year in fact. We repainted the entire kitchen/living room area this time last year. We then painted the kitchen cabinets white, upgraded the cabinet pulls and added the marble backsplash last spring. Like any homeowners, I’m sure, Erick and I still had a long list of projects we wanted to tackle eventually before selling this house in couple of years. Things like new floors, re-painting the white doors and trim, replacing light fixtures, painting the bedrooms and so on. WELL, thanks to a house flood this past September  which left us with concrete floors throughout, no baseboards and without a  kitchen island we definitely got to compete all of those projects a lot sooner then we expected.

Anyways, Erick and I are headed to our college alma mater for their homecoming game this weekend – I haven’t been back to a football game since we left 5 years ago (ewe has it really been 5 years!?) so it should be a good ol’ nostalgic time.

Our house is coming together quickly which is so exciting! In case you’re new here, our house flooded 5 weeks ago and we had to completely gut our house. I so happy to say that we finally have FLOORS again!! I will do an entire blog post dedicated to our remodel but for fun I wanted this ‘Friyay Favorites’ post to be home decor themed. I’ve been doing  SO MUCH home shopping for fixtures, furniture, rugs, decor so needless to say I’ve found a ton of goodies as of late.
