So here is my Mr. tearing out the kitchen.
We use the bathtub to get water in the meantime!
It was a fairly dirty process but somebody had to do it!
I like to supervise and INSTRUCT, he doesn't always like that part?!
he says things are fairly straight forward and he can figure out a lot on his own. Hmm who knew!? ;)
I have to wait until my SOAPSTONE SINK is ready and we will plan the base cupboards once we get the sink home.
(more on that later)
Trying to find the right faucet is proving to be a little harder than anticipated. My Mr. mentioned that maybe we will just hook up a not so special faucet for the time being and wait until the right one comes along? I really don't want a faucet to hold up the kitchen progress so that just might be the route we take.
(we can't figure out what happened to the back of his shirt!? looks like something took a bite out of it lol)
It's a tiny kitchen it measures 7x9? I think? I'll have to recheck that! The dining room is something like 18x19? it's big! so a lot of what would normally be in a kitchen will be flowing into the dining room. That's where we will have a coffee station and bar fridge for sure. It's nice when you have company, they can get up from the table and serve themselves!
OK! LOOOVVVEEE!! these are my inspiration photos. Bright. Open shelving. Soapstone sink. (but just one sink) Nice faucet.
Oh this is just so darn pretty! It would suit that kitchen wall space perfectly! The countertop may just be simple painted or unpainted pine though. I am not quite sure of that yet but I want it to be a natural material.

The next set of photos I share may be of the bathroom tear out. I love the ideas and pieces we have for this makeover. I still have to figure out how exactly my Mr. will do the drysink top. We have the sink and faucet we just have to figure out placement and material. It's gonna be cute though! #lovelavender!
For a while my studio/office will be in the one small room off the living room. It's so fun to play around with ideas. Eventually plans are to move it into the old summer kitchen which I can then go straight into the old carriage house which will be my shop.
I just LOVE this dining room! I love this floor! The little tin piece used to cover a hole is A-MAZ-ING! LURVE IT! I have plans to sew up some longer linen slips for these chairs too. I am also trying to decide paint colour in here. My TO DO LIST is so incredibly long!! WOW! Well that's about it for now peeps I hope to post again soon! It's a work in progress and I'm sure it will take longer than I'd like that's for sure! Considering the fact that there has already been some talk of a photo shoot for another magazine publication.....I hope to keep things at a decent speed!! I also love seeing the progress of renovation projects on many of the sites I follow. I love seeing the transformations! Some are really fast! WOW Some are slower, like this but please be patient with ours, it just may help me be patient with it too! LOL
