kitchen reveal

The time has come! We’ve been homeowners for three months now and I’m just itching to show you our kitchen! Granted, I still have about 3,782 projects left to do in the house, but as the Italians say: piano piano. Slowly but surely.

Before --> This was the stage when I would sit on a chair in the middle of the rubble and close my eyes and try to imagine how on earth my plans would look. I crossed my fingers and hoped for the best, and thankfully the lovely people at Ikea came through.
 After!
Ahh, the kitchen of my dreams! I can assure you that when people see it and touch it, they never guess that it's Ikea. The cabinets are super deep and durable and the appliances are nice and sleek. Our countertops are granite composite from a local marble guy (it's Italy, after all) and our floors are like a slate tile (not sure the exact name).
My favorite parts are the cookbook shelf, my blender, the white sink, my little Massachusetts ornament (thanks Paige and Paul!) and our gas range. Oh, and we have a dishwasher for the first time ever! I adore it.
We still need some stools for the island and I'm trying to figure out how I want to organize the cabinets. As a good Italian girl, I also need to expand my tablecloth collection. Piano piano!

Here are some more posts about our house renovations, if you're interested!
