I'm so excited I finally get to write this post. When we moved to the new farm this past summer, we knew this was going to be one of the first rooms we renovated. I've loathed this kitchen since day one. I don't know what I disliked more: the mismatched counter tops, the cabinets by the sink without doors or the tile they choose for the back splash. It was a functional kitchen, but man-oh-man was it an eyesore.

|Forgive me for the writing on the fridge. Little one's did it, I swear!!|
I loved the deconstruction part. It was so therapeutic to rip all the ugliness down and see it go out the door. We started trying to just remove the tile, but ended up finding it easier to cut the drywall out. We had recently had some practice hanging drywall upstairs, so we were feeling pretty confident about it. It seemed a little intimidating, but it went up rather easily. The end pictures don't do it any justice, but when we were done with the drywall we painted the kitchen a pretty shade of yellow. It was yellow before, but we choose to go with a warmer shade to cozy up the space.
|Bye, Bye ugly tile!|
|This is the only place we changed our layout. We moved the cabinets closer to the fridge and added an above the fridge cabinet. I think it makes it look much more finished.|
|My favorite parts are the sink and the integrated dishwasher.|
Well, that's all I have to share for now. I'll share more from the farm as we get it done. I'm off to do a little more sanding and painting!
