Dining makeover

I was going to wait with this post and show you the before and after for all our projects, but since everything is taking FOREVER!!! I will go ahead and show you a few sneak peeks. Above, that’s our little dining area. I took over the actual dining room and made an office/studio out of it. 

What I changed in the dining area so far:

What still needs to be done in this area:

  • Replacing the chandelier 
  • Adding art to the walls
  • Adding molding throughout dining and kitchen area

I am still working on the kitchen cabinets. Anyway, I am almost done with the cabinets, all that’s left are the doors. We took the microwave down and will install a range hood as soon as the back-splash from fireclaytile is up. At the moment we are waiting on our butcher block counter tops so until they arrive, we have to put the kitchen on hold. 

What I changed in the kitchen area so far:

What still needs to be done in this area:

  • Finishing up to paint and wax the cabinet doors
  • Remove old back-splash and installing new handmade Fireclaytile back-splash
  • Reorganizing each cabinet
  • Install a range hood
  • Add wall art
  • Make a wooden clock
  • Install new butcher block counter tops

I have a few other projects going as well, but those I really like to show you when they’re done. In a different before and after post. 

What projects are you working on right now, and do you find it to be difficult to do it yourself? I do sometimes, since all of this remodeling is new to me and my husband.
