I’m so glad that today has finally come. I’ve wanted to share our new kitchen for days now and somehow found myself working on something else or the kitchen was in no condition to get photos. The sink never seems to be empty. I guess you could say I’ve been enjoying my new counter tops and sink by baking more. I wanted to just take a look back at how the kitchen looked before we moved in.
If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram you’ve already seen the sneak peek of our sink and butcher block counter tops. We never would have thought we’d be redoing the counter tops already. We had planned to stick with the recently painted ones for at least a year. However, when you find the counter tops you’d planned on buying for only $30 a piece, you don’t wait. Our luck Ikea had just discontinued this particular line. That’s right, $150 for all the butcher block counter tops. We were beyond thrilled. We also got a bargain on our sink. I found our apron sink for only $100 at Ikea in the “as-is” section because it was returned without its box.
I’m totally in love with the counter tops and the sink. Take a look at the room now-
The kitchen has been one of those rooms that keeps changing the longer we live here. I’m slowly getting everything just the way I want it. It keeps things fun. It’s also great when you’re not in a rush. You can wait for the deals to find you! I’ll be sharing all the fun times we had altering our cabinets to fit the apron sink. I promise it wasn’t too bad. You can see our kitchen makeover using the counter top paint here.
Have a great week friends!
