The kitchen remodel is coming to a close!


It was another weekend of working on the kitchen, but I’m so excited to finally have my kitchen back! We still have a few minor details to finish up, but all of the big stuff is done.

Saturday was spent working on the entryway. It was a lot of cleaning and scrubbing under our freezers that haven’t been moved for years. We painted the entire room and did some rearranging.

Then, we moved to the kitchen to finish up our backsplash. We had already put it on earlier, but it was peel and stick that didn’t stick for very long. We ended up having to redo the majority of it by using some spray adhesive to make sure it stayed put.

Sunday, Josh and his dad, Tom Halverson, worked on putting new trim around the doors and along the floors. Then, they put the toe kick under the cabinets, which really pulled everything together.

Now, all we have left to do is put crown molding above the cabinets and do a little touch-up painting here and there, but all of the major work is done.

I am so happy with how everything turned out. It was a major undertaking that took much longer than expected, but I can finally say it was worth it.

It’s hard to believe all of the changes that we made. As you can see from the before and after pictures I’m sharing, it looks like a completely different kitchen.

I can now fill all of our drawers and cabinets and put our new kitchen to work. I’ve got lots of new recipes I can’t wait to try out and share with you.

The recipe I’m sharing this week is a quick and easy one. It just takes one pot, which is always a bonus, and it has a simple ingredient list. Enjoy!
