Dream Kitchen

It's no secret that our kitchen with it's baby blue countertops and dropped ceiling have been a bit of a downer. The faucet is touchy, the sink is weird...right when we moved in we knew we had to make some changes.

That time has finally arrived!! Last week we went to Ikea and bought a kitchen. Yes. An entire kitchen. We brought our tattered paper of plans and selected every item on their design program.

Here's what it should look like when it's done!

So great, right? Our cabinets will be white with a bead board finish on the bottom cabinets with glass doors on the top. We got a fancy new stove that I can't wait to try out and Cody is making our countertops out of wood from old railway cars. We bought our sink and faucet on ksl.com for a screaming deal, aren't they pretty?

Apron sinks are my world.
Cody has wanted one of these faucets forever. It's super industrial looking, I'm sure they have them in lunch lady land.
It's going to be a process, friends. We're also refinishing the floors and staining them black, we're knocking out walls and removing a closet, we're raising the ceiling and changing the railings and banisters. Geez. That's a lot of work. But! We are so excited, it's going to look beautiful. We'll invite you over for dinner!

I'm having serious envy over your sink and faucet--! It's a big project but kitchens are like that: they kind of take over a lot of other spaces. It might make you crazy for awhile, but it'll be so wonderful; and it's going to be WORTH IT! XO Love, Mom

Yay! I'm sure it will be fabulous as is everything in the Blonde Canary world. Good luck, and we want to see it when it is done. Now that the show is done, do you want to do dinner sometime soon? Families or a double date? Let us know!
