Just over one year ago, a crew from Better Homes & Gardens came to photograph our kitchen. We love our kitchen and made what used to be a boring space into a bright and functional (and pretty!) room.
Well, the magazine is now out.
Kinda weird seeing our regular not-so-fancy kitchen in a magazine!
I actually love that it’s in there though. It shows that you don’t need super expensive cabinetry and fixtures, lighting and appliances to make a space appealing. Sure, I would have loved soapstone counters instead of our on-sale spreckled granite and pendant lights over the window and island to replace the existing can lights, but I’m proud of the way we added character and infused a bit of our personality into what was once a mostly brown kitchen without spending a ton of money.
You can read all about it in the spring 2014 issue of BHG Kitchen + Bath Makeovers magazine (I found it at my local home depot). There are many charming kitchens and baths with tons of ideas should you desire some inspiration for sprucing up your spaces.
Just to give you a glimpse, here are the pages with our kitchen:
To see a few befores and afters, this post is a good one (although I sort of cringe at the photography). And to see it styled for the fall, click here.
Ryan and I are flattered and excited to have our house in a magazine, but it’s fun that the boys get it too. How fun for them to see their kitchen in print!
