Welcome to the bHome for Fall Tour!
30 bHome bloggers sharing their best for Fall with you.
I am so excited about this event for so many reasons:
- bHome bloggers set the bar high – these tours will be fabulous
- we are giving away a $250 Amazon gift card thanks to our generous sponsor
- AND – I am showing you my kitchen!
Yup, 345 days after we moved in ~ I am ready to show you the “AFTER”!
For perspective, I will show you the “before” too.
As many of you know, restoring our 1886 home has been a monumental, and really fun, undertaking. Pretty much everything needed major attention ~ especially the kitchen.
Bits still need to be done, such as what I noticed while taking the photos. That the extra wood holding the farmhouse sink in place never got painted. Well, I painted it today in between shots! ( I used My Paint Saint – really I did! )
You can see in the other shots it is white! Cross that off the “to do list”!
It is truly with great happiness that I share with you my friends, give one of you a $250 Amazon Gift Card and show you my kitchen!!
I made pumpkin bread – have a virtual slice while you look around.
Then enter to win and go see the other bHome bloggers homes decked out for fall.
Ok, did you see the before? If you did you probably blocked it out.
I know I did ~ these photos were kinda jarring to look at…
Speaking of “jarring” – let me tell you, that jar of granola you see on the counter below was ALIVE!
Every time I came over in the year & 8 months it took for the elderly gent to move out, I swear the contents were in motion. GROSS!
The Kitchen Before
And this was neat & tidy. Want to see the video? No moving granola depicted I promise.
Warning this video is NOT for the faint of (renovation) heart. This is what the kitchen really looked like not “cleaned up” for an Open House, like in these pictures.
Have a look here – I dare you…
The stove had a layer of grease you could have carved you name into…
There was just a lot of dirty stuff everywhere.
Once all that was all gone.
Then my stuff – finally!!
The Kitchen After
I LOVE my kitchen and dressed up for fall I think I love it even more, if that is possible.
This view is from the back “maid’s” staircase. May as well just call it “my” stairs then!
I like to decorate the little spot where the staircase turns to the kitchen. In the summer I had one of my favorite vintage straw bags there. Now one of my galvanized well worn watering cans dressed up for fall.
Here is where the stairs meet the kitchen – lots of places to add in a bit of fall.
Here you can see the factory metal doors we had made. I love the industrial look of them with the wood clad of the house.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my kitchen reveal and fall decor as much as I did sharing it with you.
Now as promised the $250 Give Away and an opportunity to pop over to my friends homes to see how they do it up for fall.
Enter to win a $250 Amazon Gift Card from our bHome Tour Sponsor ~ My Paint Saint.
