I thought it would fun to feature before and after stories on the Fridays between the Before Party (first Friday of every month) and the After Party (last Friday of every month). I can’t wait to highlight some of your awesome projects – I noticed that a few of you have already accomplished your missions!
The January After Party will be held next Friday the 27th so mark your calendars.
Also, did you hear about the new monthly series hosted by Jenny at Evolution of Style? The first one will be January 31 and you’re invited to link up how any of your rooms have evolved!
For those of you who desire an enormous renovation in your home but feel like the day will never come, take heart. Today I have an inspiring kitchen reno to share with you from my friend Jane. After dreaming and planning about it for years, Jane and her husband finally saw the vision for their kitchen come to life. Jane was the general contractor for this project which in and of itself is huge. I especially love this project because Jane had a similar kitchen/dining room layout to what I have now, and knocked down the wall between the two rooms like we would like to do someday.
Here is Jane’s kitchen before:
One of Jane’s favorite new features is the bumped out window over the sink. I love the wood floors, the backsplash and the mantle on the hood over the stove! Great job making this all come together after lots of planning, Jane. Your new kitchen is beautiful.
Seeing this before and after makes me so excited for the day when we can bring the vision for our own kitchen to reality. Half the fun is the dreaming, right??
