We all know that space, Sarah Richard’s beautifully decorated kitchen with the fabulous patterns and colors that make for the perfect area for talking, laughing, eating and sharing. Realistically, we can’t all afford top of the line everything, thank goodness for all the great products that Decor Planet sells for reasonable prices!
Whether your kitchen is small or large, it is the heart of the home. It is where the meals are created and memories are made. I will admit, come 6:30 in the morning I’m not so happy making eggs or toasting bagels, cleaning up and repeating many times throughout the day. However, come evening when we can all gather as a family, relax and talk about our day, nothing makes me happier. The boys are also of an age where they actually enjoy eating what I cook, good bye to the days of making grown up meals and kids meals. Do you realize I now actually love to cook dinners because I get to see our boys enjoying what has been put in-front of them, it truly warms my heart!
Do you know how long I have been waiting for this day to jump up and down with joy and shout from the top of my lungs THE KITCHEN IS DONE!!! It has been a LONG 22 months since the day we found the mold. So to say I am just a tad excited to bring you today’s post is a huge understatement! So here it is, our white and elegant kitchen remodel.
A reader of our’s, Karen had contacted us awhile back asking about our kitchen hood. So I was ecstatic when she recently sent us pictures of her mother’s finished kitchen! They ended up doing a major renovation with new cabinets as well as having walls knocked out.
As a blogger, there is nothing more rewarding then receiving an e-mail from a reader thanking you for inspiring them. Every week I receive questions asking about certain projects we have completed.

On a side note I wanted to help a sweet friend out. White Lace Cottage had a techie issue with WordPress and lost her place on all the blogrolls. Having gone through this myself I know how heartbreaking it is. You can find her on FB or re-add her URL to your your list, you wouldn’t want to miss out on all the beauty she posts!
~Have a fabulous day~
I have been looking at different options for the kitchen remodel as we wait for one more quote to come in for the mold removal. Let me put it this way, the cost of the mold removal is about the same cost as new cabinets, yup, not good. Ray has been working on quotes for refinancing the home as our wonderful insurance has decided to pay NOTHING. I have a whole lot to say on the subject but thinking it might be best to just stay quiet for now.
I am hoping we can make the white and grey combo work, keeping our upper cabinets and replacing the lowers in a warm grey. I’ll leave you with some of my inspiration pictures while Nate and I snuggle on the couch both sick as dogs. Hopefully I’ll be back sooner then later.
