Kitchen Reveal (Oh, hi there.)

I've been absent for a while, and the longer it's been since I last posted, the harder it's been to make myself sit down and write even when I felt the desire. I've been working on projects, even taking photos... but it's been very difficult to find the time or the motivation to start again (an object at rest tends to stay at rest, right?).

I'm going to try, though! One of my favorite things about writing this blog is that I can fit it around my life; I can post when I have time and projects to share, and remain quiet when I don't or when my "real" life demands more attention. I'm going to work on posting a bit more regularly, especially since (a.) that won't be hard when you look at my recent posting history and (b.) it makes me happy! 

So without further ado, some news about my kitchen. We got it done just in time for Christmas, thanks to our contractor friend Joe who was immensely helpful and The Tile Shop which sent me all the gorgeous tile.

Part of me still can't believe it's done because the kitchen has been an ongoing, never ending project for several years. Let's look back:

Now back to today...

Such a change, don't you think?  I'll be back to share some details in a day or two, promise!


  1. WOW. What a great job. I know how hard it is to get back in the saddle after a break. Thanks for sharing your beautiful remodel. I love the tile, lighting, and the gorgeous counter top. Just beautiful.

  2. I love every part of it! The pendant lights are just awesome as is the backsplash. I know it is hard to get back to blogging. I made it my resolution this year to at least try. I'm glad you are back since you were always a fav.

  3. It looks great Anna. I understand about time and motivation to blog, but I'm glad you're back! How are you liking your countertops? Looking forward to the details. :)

  4. Absolutely gorgeous!! I'm loving the backsplash & counters.

    Oh, also, I copied your IKEA Rast hack & it came out perfectly! Thank you for sharing that as well :)

  5. It's beautiful! And that tile is so dreamy.

    Totally pinning!

  6. Glad to see you are back!! I missed your posts! I haven't been posting that much for a while but today I posted 5 old projects/stories and I'm also willing to start posting more often.
    Your kitchen looks really nice and I love the backsplash tiles. I was also hoping to do a big kitchen renovation, but my husband told me today we will have to wait until September... I hate my kitchen... don't know if you have seen pictures in my blog...but it is old and nasty and I can't wait to see something new and clean!!
    Ok... I have to go now... but before that... one question: how are your chickens doing??

  7. Please come back! (it's been more than a few days, ahem!) Your kitchen looks amazeballs! Would love to hear the details. So miss your inspiration!!
