You guys, you have no idea how EXCITED and tired I am! There are so many things going on in my world and I have started off the new year full speed. The kitchen renovation is underway! Soon my visions will come to life, and, I am finally able to design something! This is my first project and the start of my portfolio.
Not only am I renovating my own home, I am helping my wonderful brother fix up a flip house. Every second of spare time is spent on my projects. See why I am tired BUT excited?
It is hard work, y’all. There are so many small details that need to be worked out, trades that need to be scheduled, material estimates, and best of all, selections to be finalized. So, I bring to you today, the start. The start of my first kitchen renovation, the start of my portfolio, and another huge step on my journey to becoming a self-taught Interior Designer. I am so thankful for my amazing husband who always supports me, somehow figures out a way to make things work to carry out my vision, and for not killing me when I make him move things after he thinks he’s done!
FUR DOWN, COMING DOWN! This is the most exciting part of the entire reno for me!
It doesn’t seem like a lot, but wow, my poor hubby is exhausted. Cutting the island down meant re-routing electrical- the switch for the disposal, pendants, and all outlets. The fur down required so much more than just demoing, and I am so happy that step is done! Check out that original 60’s wallpaper!
Up next: countertops, range hood, shelves, sconces, and pendants. Stay tuned for DIY posts because I have already experienced some unforeseen problems that I will have to work around; those always make for the best DIY’s. 🙂
Wyatt and I are off to make our selections; he totally feels my excitement!
You guys, this is what dreams are made of. I am literally doing what I have dreamed about for years. Yeah, it might not be the biggest and most beautiful design ever, but it’s my first, and allllll from this crazy little brain of mine.
All my renovating love,
