Well, hello there! I’ve got a quick kitchen update for you! If you’ve been following along, I’ve been redoing my kitchen week by week and next week is the projected finish date. Here’s what we’ve completed these past 7 days:
Counter Tops have been Templated
What that means is that Bedrock Quartz sent over someone to digitally measure the space so that the countertops can be cut to perfectly fit my cabinets! That’s the good news. The bad news is that the install date is scheduled for May 9th. I was hoping to finish the whole renovation, have it styled and photographed by 7am on May 11th. I can’t tile all of the walls until the counter tops are in so I’m a little stressed about the tight timeline! Especially since I work and the 10th is a work day. So we’ll see….
Ceiling is Painted
When we put up our bead board ceiling, the whole reason was to cover the huge holes left from the old soffit. We put the ceiling up and it took one million nail holes to do so. I was the lucky girl who got to patch each hole (twice) and then paint to finish it off. It looks so beautiful now! I love the texture the bead board adds to the space!
new light is up
We ended up exchanging our old light for a different one that matched the finishes in the room better. All of the lights are from Joss and Main and they were so nice to switch it out for us! Isn’t the new light gorgeous?! I’m obsessed!
Cabinets are 90% Assembled
Last week we had the frame of the cabinets in and now they all (mostly) have drawers and door fronts! High five! My husband has worked nights and on his days off doing this project. I love Ikea, but going from flat boxes to beautiful cabinets is a lot of work!
Hardware is Attached
The beautiful hardware from Joss and Main has been attached! Hardware is like adding accessories to your outfit- it is just that final sparkle that leaves the room feeling special and finished! It feel SO good to get to this point! Now we can start filling the cabinets with all of our stuff- cue the happy dance! That means my dresser won’t be covered in pots and pans anymore!!!
I love me some pretty accessories! A few more accessories have arrived and I am looking forward to styling them in the finished space! The hand brass vase is so perfectly weird- I just love the color and the quirkiness! The marble and wood cake stand is just a beautiful staple piece that will add some great warmth and texture to the space. P.s.

- Install crown molding

One week people, one week and then this should be all done for the One Room Challenge. Pray for me?!
