Kitchen Sneak Peek........Please Don't Hate Me!

If you've been reading my blog for awhile then you know I've been talking about our kitchen redo for a loooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnggggggggg time! Almost two years to be exact! I first mentioned it way back in August of 2011 with this post about stripping cabinets and I've been teasing you ever since. 

Over Memorial Day weekend Nate and I busted butt and worked on nothing but the kitchen and have it almost finished except for a little bit of painting left, which I will be working on this weekend. So I'm going to torture you a little bit longer with a few sneak peeks......please don't hate me!

Just a quick recap on what the kitchen looked like before. 


Don't judge me people. I didn't know what I was doing 9 years ago!


And now for the sneak peeks

I tried to take pictures of only things you haven't seen yet in other posts.

Hey, how did Anderson get in here?!? Oh right, just my way of easing any angry feelings you may have toward me right now. How can you be mad with this sweet face smiling back at you????

Please, please, please come back for the GRAND REVEAL next week! Hopefully it will live up to your expectations! As for me, I'm thrilled with it and so happy to finally have it completed!!!

P.S. If you're still mad about all the teasing and the waiting, scroll back up to see that sweet face again! ;)

If you'd like to see sneak peeks throughout the week and other inspiration, be sure to follow me on Facebook!!

I'm linking to the parties listed HERE and to:
