My room makeover::
The first part of the project started with painting the kitchen cabinets white. We added crown moulding to the contractor grade cabinets to give them a "higher end" look. We replaced the laminate kitchen countertops with John Boos butcher block. We replaced all the appliances with stainless steel and converted the electric stove to gas. After the kitchen was finished we hired a contractor to remove a couple walls in the entry way to open up the space. We had reclaimed barn beams installed to give it the modern rustic look we love so much. We sourced the beams from a company in Pond Eddy, NY called Lumberland Post and Beam. The contractor hand made us a set of rustic barn doors to replace the old bi-fold doors in the front closet. All the trim was ripped out and replaced with a nice thick craftsman trim.
My makeover advice::
Be open to changing your vision slightly as you go along. I had a general style in mind but things changed as I went a long. Expect to run into issues and extra costs during a large reno.
What I love most about my new space::
We love how open the space is now. Before the renovation the dining room was never used because it was too closed off.
