Hi y'all! It has been a bit of a whirlwind over here at the Mozart st. project. Besides building a new Kitchen, we had to tear out the old kitchen (not only the old cabinets, back splash, etc. but also the old pipes, window's, and so on) and we are in the process of rebuilding that used-to-be kitchen into our master bedroom. Oh and our entire (only) bathroom is gutted. Might as well have continued the demo since the bathroom is right off of the bedroom.
Anyhoo- with all this construction, other projects, and just life; I have neglected to update you all on the Mozart st. kitchen. We are further along now than these pictures show, but I didn't want to get too far behind since I will also have other rooms to show you updates on soonish.
The Cabinets & Fixtures
The hubby and I designed the kitchen layout and we decided to buy the cabinets at Ikea because it fell in our budget. We will eventually get real wood shaker style doors for all the cabinets and drawer fronts but that will come later. Here is a picture of all of our cabinet pieces in boxes (before we started ripping them open).
This is a little while later (the magic of photos disguising time lapse). We weren't living in the home at this point (note the small toddler running around in the background- she's always running) so that made it easier to get things in place. Notice that the wall is completely gone now, no remnants of it ever being there. This has opened up our room so much.
Here is another closer view of the cabinets. The gap is where the stove will go.
Here is the other side of the stove area. Since we have high ceiling we have a lot of storage. This kitchen actually has more storage than our last kitchen which was almost 3X's the size.
Here is the hubs installing our farmhouse sink from Ikea. I LOVE this sink.
Welp, that's it for now. Short and sweet. Next I will show you the finishes that we are putting in our kitchen. The counters are to die for (spoiler: they are wood butcher block) and once I sealed them, they turned out way better than I could have imagined. Stay tuned!
