Our kitchen renovation is rolling right along. Currently, we’re working on updating the electrical work and removing the old knob and tube wiring, then comes leveling the floor. But let’s talk about something a little bit more fun and way prettier: material selections! Sarah, aka Room for Tuesday, has worked really hard to narrow down the finishes, textures, and materials for our kitchen remodel and they are truly stunning. Today I wanted to share some of our thinking about the choices and give you a glimpse into how it’s coming together so far.
p.s. be sure to follow me on Instagram because I’ve been sharing soooo much behind-the-scenes footage of our renovation.
After watching nearly every episode of Fixer Upper, I couldn’t wait until it was our turn to smash the kitchen… and what a day it was. With my pink hard hat on, I was so ready to peek inside the walls of our 110 year old house. When we renovated the bedroom, there was a small amount of demo involved, but this is the first time that I’ve ever gotten to rip apart this big of a space. Let’s just say it was extremely therapeutic…!

I have a secret to confess to you… Did anyone notice that during my backyard oasis reveal, there was no mention of what our backdoor area looked like?? That’s because we ran out of time to finish it! Thankfully, we teamed up with Schlage again to do a quick, but impactful makeover in #mytinybungalow to finally finish the backdoor area. I was feeling really inspired by our previous collaboration when I did a quick bathroom door makeover — it’s sort of amazing what a fresh coat of paint plus new door hardware can do for a space. Of course, me being me, I made this makeover project a bit bigger than just some paint… instead, I asked Sean to install some custom wooden trim to the stair risers to make them a bit more exciting.
Gather round and let me tell you about the time I bought a house and thought I’d immediately renovate the kitchen… then a whoooole lotta life happened. Flash forward 2 and a half years and it is finally time! That’s right — the time has come for us to renovate our kitchen and I could not be more excited. Some of you have glimpsed a peek into our majestic pre-renovation kitchen thanks to the No Makeup Home Tour, but today I’m gonna let it alllll hang out and show you EVERYTHING. The good (aka the only thing I like about the kitchen), the bad (all of it), and the ugly (again, all of it).
Also, here’s the best part: I teamed up with Sarah from Room for Tuesday on this entire series! I mean, how gorgeous is her kitchen?? Clearly, she knows her stuff when it comes to kitchen remodels. Over the next few months, Sarah will be offering her expert design guidance about the project on her site, while I’ll be sharing more of the nitty gritty renovation stories here. With over 30 posts planned, we have so much to share with you and cannot wait! So let’s get started with some before photos + notes about our kitchen:

Here in #mytinybungalow, I am always looking for ways to reduce our impact on the environment. While we’re not 100% waste-free (it’s so hard sometimes!), we’ve made some key adjustments in our shopping and home habits that still can have a big impact. Today we teamed up with Tide purclean to share a few things you can do in the laundry room to reduce your impact — while maintaining your budget and getting clean, fresh-smelling clothes!
It is so good to be home!!! After being in Italy for the past few weeks, I am happy to be home and reunited with our tiny zoo. I absolutely love to travel, but I am always ready to come home now that I own a house. There’s something about it that just feels so… right. I miss the tiny bungalow while we’re away! I never thought I’d ever feel that. After landing yesterday, I felt so inspired to snap some photos of my home and share my favorite corners of our home.
