The Big Reveal is finally here!!

To quote Entrepreneur, my ren­o­va­tion moti­va­tion has dis­ap­peared. And I have to agree. The project that began around October 25th…the one that con­sumed most of our week­ends and evenings…the one that dis­placed all sem­blance of a decent meal…is finally almost fin­ished after six weeks of hard, manual labor…just the back splash tiling and a few minor cab­inet and wiring adjust­ments are left. But I simply cannot wait any longer to show you the results of our back­breaking, stress-inducing, com­pletely exhausting efforts!

Drum roll please.….…

I know! Amazing, isn’t it? I can feel the month-long knots in my shoul­ders begin­ning to loosen up already. It’s always so hard to envi­sion the final results when selecting from teeny, tiny sam­ples. Sometimes it really felt like we were taking a huge gamble that all the com­po­nents would play well with each other. And now, I can con­fi­dently tell you that we’re thrilled how it’s come together.

And now it’s def­i­nitely time for this!

Let the hol­i­days begin!

  1. Wonderful! Love the coun­ter­tops — love the flooring — it is cer­tainly worth cel­e­brating the com­ple­tion — or near-completion! The wine is the per­fect fin­ishing touch.
    You will be sharing when the back­splash is done, right?

  2. It looks BELLISSIMA!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe you have done it all your­selves — it looks amazing (wish I could pop over for dinner some time.…) — and def­i­nitely time for that wine in your beau­tiful new kitchen !!

    • Technically we did the demo­li­tion and selecting the final com­po­nents. We left the instal­la­tion of the coun­ters and floors to people who actu­ally know what they’re doing! Anytime you want to pop in from Italy for dinner is fine with me! ;-)

  3. WOW and OOOOHHH WOW!!!!!!. I’m cer­tainly looking for­ward to seeing it “in person” You all did a won­derful job.

  4. And Apothic Red is my favorite wine! The kitchen is stunning!

  5. It looks ter­rific! I am so impressed by all of the work you did and your eye for detail. Three cheers for you (and at least one of those is my glass of wine clinking yours). :)

  6. Gorgeous! I want a kitchen makeover! Unfair, just kid­ding; couldn’t help but refer to your last post, lol!
    And I love Apothic Red! Yes, my sister turned me on to it!

  7. Lisa, you two are amazing, and it looks beau­tiful!
    I absolutely love the counter tops you chose.
    Done just in time for Christmas!
    Very spe­cial indeed.
    xo.
