Hello lovelies! I am so thrilled to have ya’ll following along with my kitchen update with me! I was able to cross two more items off my to-do list this week. The first is replacing the old pendant lights.
Here is a reminder of what was hanging in here before:
They were perfectly functional, but a little boring and on the small side.
I am so excited to share the new lights I found!
Aren’t they beautiful??
I found these on Amazon HERE and I just knew they were the ones! They were really reasonably priced too.
They are just the right amount of fancy for me. 🙂
And they match the chrome hardware on the cabinet doors and drawers.
Do you spy what else I was able to cross of the list?
My cabinet finally got its glass doors!
Well it’s plexiglass actually. Looks like the real deal but I was able to cut it myself! I love how they turned out.
See how I swapped the raised panels in my cabinet doors for glass HERE. I used the very same method as I used in that tutorial from our last kitchen.
They add a little more interest to that corner than the plain cabinet doors would have.
So that’s two more projects closer to being done woohoo!!
I still need to:
- Install the tile backsplash
- Add floating shelves to the right of the window
- Decide on a window treatment
- Recover the bar stools
- Clean the floor tile grout
And then finally this room will be done!
Speaking of the floor tile, the backsplash I chose works well with it, and I am kind of loving how it is looking with what we have going on in this space now so it looks like it might be staying for a while.
There will always be the option to change it out down the road if I change my mind.
Here are some of my other kitchen posts so far if you’ve missed any:
I hope you are enjoying seeing this space come together as much as I am!
I am hoping to start on the backsplash today, but we also have the carpet guys coming to lay new carpet upstairs today and tomorrow. And this is the current state of my two front rooms:
Can we say hoarder?? That’s almost everything from my storage room minus the furniture! It is the only room downstairs that has carpet and that will be getting swapped out as well so I had to empty it out.
And my poor office…
That’s the contents of the boys’ rooms. All we were allowed to leave up there was the furniture.
I don’t know how much I’ll have done to share next week since I will be busy putting all of this back, but I’ll be back on Tuesday sharing how I gave our knife blocks an update to work better in our new kitchen:
UPDATE: See how I gave these knife blocks a whole new look HERE now!
Have a great weekend, my friends!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
