I’m back! I have missed blogging but I really needed the break. We came home from Atlanta on the 4th and I have been trying to get things back in order ever since. My birthday, Mr. C’s birthday, 4th of July, and Lacey’s birthday (Monday!) are all right in a row so the end of June & first couple weeks of July are insane. Happy chaos if you will.
As promised, a few more pics of Mr. C’s parents’ remodel. They redid the majority of their kitchen. They kept some cabinets but replaced all the doors. They got rid of the breakfast/eating space and made it into a family room. The den space was down the hall so having it with the kitchen gives it an open feel more like newer homes. Wish I had some before pics! Even though my preference is a white kitchen I still appreciate beautiful wood. If I could have redone the kitchen I would have switched up the island and made it different from the rest of the kitchen. Maybe some beadboard and a butcher block top. I think I would have also added pendant lights. I like detailed knobs as well so that is probably the direction I would have taken. However, this kitchen is very much “theirs” and I think it looks great!
This is part of the garden at their home. Very unique. All the kids in the neighborhood love the frogs. I think it is neat to have a fun garden. They have lots of little animal statues hidden in different spots. Some day when we go back I’ll showcase their amazing yard!
