Evolution Of My Kitchen

I've been pulling together some more of the finished decorative aspects of my kitchen space... I guess in a designer's home nothing's ever finished. I thought I'd post some pictures and realized it may be more meaningful if I share the journey. The space used to be the home's dining room.
A few shots of me assembling my IKEA cabinets.

Above the space is primed and cabinet frames hung and below the floor going in. PS- don't forget this is all going on with 5 boys and 2 dogs. When I look back at this image I truly ache for the time when my smallest was that small. 

I was so excited when the backsplash went in. Next... pictures of the finished space. xoxo

Thanks for following my blog, nice to meet you Erica! This is great job, so you make your kitchen by yourself??? I can't believe it!!! What an ideal thing to create our own living space from beginning, it reminds me a childhood memory of building up the secret base on a tree :D Keep updated!

Wow you are very hands on....SO IMPRESSED....and managing to look so cool!

Lady you need to share your secret with me...my project has me stressed out and rocking "bag lady chic" and I have people doing the physical stuff!! Mind you they are men, and after looking at how my pebble tiles went on today I reckon I could cut down on the level of stress if I had done it myself!!

Can wait to see the finished kichen, Mrs C x
