But before we head into the good and juicy parts, let’s take a moment to remember what the kitchen USED to look like…

The kitchen felt dark, claustrophobic and the cabinets – although many – were pretty useless when it came to storage. And nope, we’re not even going to talk about the yellow maple, funky granite or red brick wall…

You can check out the progress of our labor of love in the weekly kitchen reno videos. (IS SHE FINALLY GOING TO SHUT UP AND START SHOWING US THE PHOTOS!!??) LOL Alright, here we finally go! Hope you enjoy ♥

Leaving open the walls around the window has really widened the room dramatically. Now the entire kitchen/dining space doesn’t feel as narrow and awkward anymore, but looks open and airy and just the right dimensions! So so so glad we didn’t do any more uppers 😀

The appliance/pantry wall as well as all the drawers are fantastic to organize stuff. Not only does it create a ton of room, it also helps so much with organization!

To bring in a bit of warmth, we added some raw wood to the bar area of the kitchen. It’s not glued in yet, so excuse the slight wonky look of the legs 😉

Both the single bowl Domsjo sink and the black Delta faucet are a DREAM to work with! They really give our modern farmhouse kitchen that modern yet farmhousy feel ♥

Probably my favorite corner of the kitchen… It’s the perfect spot for my KitchenAid – which has been working a TON since the kitchen has been finished! The floating wine rack gives so much warmth and interest and I love to showcase my pink cups and have my cookbooks nearby!

I scored this original oil painting on one of my trips back to Switzerland a few years back. In order to bring it to the US, I had to dismantle the frame, roll up the canvas and put it all together again when I arrived. I love how much meaning and just a touch of rustic it brought to the kitchen!

Below you can see the area rug! You guys, putting a rug into the kitchen is like HEEEEEEAVEN!!! Seriously, the luxurious feeling it creates is hard to put into words! Eventually I’ll put a 6×9 rug in, but for now our living room rug has to do 😉

Just for a trial I brought in my old duvet cover turned curtains. It works so well in this space, that I’m going to make some real curtains out of it!

The backsplash has been amazing so far as well! Using satin paint, it’s washable and really easy to keep pretty.

So, and that WAS IT for our modern farmhouse kitchen reveal!!! What do you think? What do you think of the high gloss cabinets in this 1790 built home? Do you think it works?
