kitchen makeover

Screen Shot 2015-11-06 at 12.27.15 PMOn our most recent visit to IKEA, I made sure to grab the latest catalogue as we were leaving. Oh-Em-Gee. Has anyone else looked through it yet? I think that I may have gotten drool on every page. I instantly wanted to update every room in The Little Barn. First, let’s start with the kitchen.

As a reminder, this is what our kitchen currently looks like.

IMG_0061IMG_0071IMG_0074I feel that it’s overcrowded, and I’ve never really been to keen on the layout. I plan to move our 9′ church pew outdoors, put the kitchen island under the window, order bottom cabinets for the wall with the crates, and move our giant table into the middle of the room.

Here is my inspiration for our new Scandinavian look.

  1. Loving the vibe in your kitchen with the newest updates. Thanks so much for stopping by. Looking forward to reading more about your adventures….especially post little one!

  2. You have great style. Your kitchen is the stuff that most people dream about. Don’t underestimate your abilities.

  3. Umm, your current kitchen is what my dreams are made of, so it’s hard for me to imagine improving on perfection. Love the gray wood stain. Your home is the perfect balance of rustic and modern, which is so “me”.

  4. Hey Emory

  • I was intending for this video to only be in my stories. After watching it again and again, I decided to post it in my feed as well. I wish to never forget moments like these. Remy’s typical game of asking to go in her crib only to throw everything out of it and pretend to go to sleep. Or her new one- taking her rings in with her and playing with them (after she throws everything out, of course). She makes me say every colour before going to the next one. Then she stacks them up, gets out, and shelves the toy until we have to repeat the game all over again. I let her make her messes all while trying to spend every waking and spare minute with her. These are our days and rituals. I don’t know about you, but I certainly don’t wake up with this much energy.
