This post is brought to you by the blood, sweat, tears, and sanity of Aaron and Mekenzie Crowder.
We planned this renovation long before I was pregnant. And we started demo before I was pregnant too. And then I got pregnant, and going through a major renovation just about killed all three of us. I laid most of the flooring by myself while 5 months pregnant. We finished the week before Thanksgiving, with a little time to spare before the arrival of Evelyn Faye.
God bless all the pregnant women who go without a kitchen sink in the middle of summer. I truly empathize.
I happily present to you, the reveal of our other baby, The Great Room.
Here’s the brief overview if you forgot where we started.
Let’s dive into the details.
The living room is sporting:
a painted fire place, with bead board and a red brick hearth
tall board and batten
entryway table made from scrap wood and a trunk
a new banister & newel post
gordon tufted chesterfield sofa
1970’s Scandinavian luna chairs
diamond shag rug
“Christ Walking on the Water” painting (1901) by Russian landscape artist, Julius Sergius von Klever
Kitchen is made up of:
pebble stone granite counter tops
white subway tile back splash
tabouret metal bar stools
chalkboard back door
IKEA stainless steel appliances: range, dishwasher, refrigerator
barn style pendant sink light
We absolutely love how the 3 rooms flow seamlessly together for one big cohesive feeling. It’s my favorite place in the house to be. In the next post I write, I’ll be publishing the cost breakdown, since I’ve received so many emails regarding how/where our money was spent.
Now can someone please point me in the direction of club membership for those who survive a kitchen renovation?
