Before & After: Joellyn's Grandma Kitsch to Modern Kitchen

When Joellyn moved into her grandparents' Montana farmhouse, there were some changes that needed to be made. The original 1970s kitchen was one of them. See how the updated space looks now:

From Joellyn:

I had the great fortune of moving into my grandparents house on our family farm a couple of years ago. It hadn't been touched much since it was built in 1971, so we saw it as an opportunity to make it exactly what we wanted... starting with the removal of the mostly original carpet. It covered the entire house from kitchen to bathroom!

 
Since it's a working farm, our house projects are limited to winter time. Last winter we worked on the kitchen and could not be more pleased with the result. Doing most of the work ourselves, we not only added beauty, but tons of functionality that would accommodate the many extras we often feed -- especially at harvest time. We love our hard-working kitchen!

Thanks, Joellyn!
