A few of my favorite things.. in my FULLY FUNCTIONING KITCHEN – Diy Kitchen project!!!

Look at this kitchen!  I am in love!



Let’s take a look at some of the awesome new details in our kitchen project!!

We have a dish washer!! And I’m back to running it every night which makes me feel like my life is coming back together again! 🙂

This beautiful sink we bought at Lowes is gorgeous! I knew from the start that I wanted a farmhouse  (also known as apron front) style and I’m so glad I went with a giant one basin one!!

This massive amazing garbage disposal is my husband’s pride and joy! haha


Its a Waste King, and apparently it’s able to chop up anything you throw at it.. including bones!!??

My GE Stove top. I finally have a gas cook top!! And now I feel like I am actually really cooking 🙂 (no offense to anyone who likes electric.. it’s just not my cup of tea) And thanks to our new friend Kevin for giving up a Saturday to connect the gas line in our crazy hot attic 🙂

What else is new in our kitchen project?

Drawers – The drawers were put back in and the boys had fun 🙂 and then I got to start moving stuff into them!!! so I’m almost done having kitchen items in 4 different places around the house… almost 🙂

Now for a few of my favorite drawers!!

This spice drawer is such a huge improvement from the basket I use to have full of spices.

And this drawer… well, it is especially for my favorite kitchen tools.. my kitchen aid mixer and my ninja blender!  Ahh this makes me so happy 🙂

Oh and when we were making up some extra concrete to patch up some of the bigger holes we searched for some fun projects to use up what was left.. these lazy susans are so awesome!! I can’t wait to put ours on our table! 🙂

    I love all the new updates and your kitchen looks amazing but I totally cringed when I read wallpaper ? Being in the renta/remodel business I dread wallpaper because removing it is a pain ? So with that being said I can not wait to see the finished kitchen.. It’s coming along great ❤️U all

    • I hear ya with the wallpaper.. but we are only doing one small portion of the wall.. you’ll see it’s not to bad 🙂 And I’m sure if we ever want to take it off, Ryan will be good enough to remind me it was my idea and I’ll take it down! hahaha thanks for reading! hoping for lots more updates now that I’m starting to feel better!
