Our house remodel has been completed for the last few months so now I've been working on getting this place put back together. This is definitely all still a work in progress so I have a hard time really calling these the "after" photos, but I thought I would share where we are right now.
The main thing we have left to do is to put in a backsplash in the kitchen. I honestly got a little burnt out with decisions and was also feeling like I really needed to see the space completed before making a choice on tile. Otherwise, all the major stuff is complete! Now I just need to find some more appropriately sized items for the tall shelves (HA) in the living area and to make sure the furniture arrangement is working for us.
The kitchen had a pretty good general layout to begin with and was a great size. We did gut the whole thing and redid the floors. I wanted to keep the original floors but they had split the kitchen and living area in half, with wood in the kitchen and carpet in the living room. Unfortunately, there was no wood underneath the carpet and to make the existing wood match with new was actually going to cost more than just putting all new wood down. They also had a short, fat island and had left space for a table, but with the dining room just a few steps away, we decided a long island (12 ft) would make the best use of the space and would work well for our family. The beams are the same except we had the brackets sprayed black (thanks to our realtor @thehomescoop for that suggestion) and I think it helps the whole beam stand out a little more. I mentioned on Instagram that the railing above the kitchen is a kids play loft that the original owners had put in. There's a ladder in the hallway to access it. My kids love it!
I found a lot of things on Amazon and eBay, which definitely saved some money. There were a few faucets I looked at on other sites that were going to cost as much as my fridge! I linked up what I could below.

I'm so glad this little sitting is right off the kitchen. We end up hanging out here pretty frequently, even though it's not our main hang out space. It's great for while I'm cooking or just sitting and chatting.
This area didn't need too much...we ran the hardwood through this area so it flowed a little better. We painted the built-ins and brick, retiled the hearth and put new doors and hardware on the lower cabinets. I love all the original brass sconces throughout the house!
The main pieces of furniture were all thrifted from our local Craigslist type site and I reused a lot of items from our last house! I did try and put links to some of the items at the end.

Coffee Table: West Elm via Craigslist
